The Yellowstone backcountry includes some of the most uniquely beautiful wild landscapes on Earth. Here is your chance to experience the real Yellowstone, a magnificent wilderness teeming with life and unbelievable thermal features! From wolf and bear to vast herds of elk to spectacular wildflower-filled meadows and expansive forests beneath snow-covered mountains, the Yellowstone hiking backcountry is second to none. Yellowstone backpacking means diversity. The Park has an amazing variety of landscapes, and because each trip visits a different area of the Park, each guided Yellowstone backpacking trip is a unique adventure, like no other. And because large protected national forest wilderness areas border much of the park, Yellowstone's backcountry includes some of our most remote wildlands in the U.S. south of Alaska.
