Are you looking for a more in-depth hiking and camping experience in Yellowstone? Join our first-rate naturalist guides on one of three backpacking excursions this summer! Bring your gear and a sense of adventure and we’ll guide you through the park’s spectacular backcountry wilderness.
Backpacking Yellowstone’s Northern Range
When: June 14-18
Yellowstone’s Northern Range is alive with the abundance of wildlife. Animals have become active in the spring, wildflower begin to bloom, and creeks are filling with snowmelt. Baby animals—from bison and elk calves to bear cubs and baby birds—are starting to leave behind the the pullouts and boardwalks and venture into the backcountry of the Northern Range, an area teeming with new life. You’ll begin your first evening at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch with an evening session that will cover safety and preparation. The next days will be spent hiking and camping in the backcountry of Yellowstone’s Northern Range.
Backpacking and Fishing Yellowstone’s Interior
When: July 2-5
Enjoy spending time in Yellowstone’s spectacular backcountry hiking and fishing.
