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 backpack 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.
In addition to Yellowstone National Park, we also offer exciting Wyoming Backpacking treks in high mountain wilderness areas adjacent to the park, including top hiking destinations like the Absarokas, Gros Ventres, Grand Tetons, and the Grand Canyon plus a variety of Montana backpacking, including the rugged Beartooths just Northeast of the Park.
Big Wild Adventures has been the leading Yellowstone backpacking guide service for over 3 decades. Nobody knows backpacking in Yellowstone better than we do. Big Wild owners Howie and Marilyn don’t just live next to Yellowstone, but they’ve lived, worked, hiked and played in and around Yellowstone since the early 1970′s. Their home/ office is just six miles from the Park. And, unlike companies operating under another company’s permit, we are the permitted Yellowstone backpacking guide/ outfitter for our treks and have been for over 30 years. Don’t settle for second best! Sign on now…
Please note that sometimes our Yellowstone National Park backpacking trips fill up, and we take reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. So don’t miss out!
To reserve your space, call 406-848-7000. We can’t wait to explore the wilds with you!
