This is a 5 day trek with two base camps along our llama-assisted mountain journey. It is a loop hike so we experience all new scenery every day of the trip. It features 25+ miles of hiking, which includes day hikes on days 2 and 4. Day 4 we have the option to challenge ourselves and climb 2,600+ feet to see some of the Teton’s best views, or enjoy a more moderate, scenic route packed with stunning views and beautiful mountain basins.
We will cross the divide on two occasions and sneak a peak into Grand Teton National Park from the top. Our camps are wonderful, our day hikes are challenging, the views are stunning, and the food is spectacular. The llamas truly earn their keep on this trip. Our well trained llamas help make a trip like this possible and do so in style as they each carry 80 pounds of food and gear in their panniers (saddle bags). Guests also have the opportunity to fish, swim, and choose from multiple day hike options. The views of The Grand Teton are breathtaking and make for outstanding photographs so be sure to bring your camera along!
This trip is operated by Wildland Llamas, an authorized backpacking and llama outfitter in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
