Join Wildland Trekking for an incredible 4 days in the famous Pemigewasset Wilderness! Standing out as the largest designated wilderness in the White Mountains, the ‘Pemi’ (as locals call it) is home to moose, deer, and black bear who make their homes among the pristine brooks and impressive waterfalls the area is known for. This tour isn’t all in the woods, however! After we ascend above tree line to the historic Appalachian Trail we will summit multiple iconic peaks including South Twin Mountain (4,902 ft) and Mt. Guyot (4,580 ft).
This unique tour offers an opportunity that is rare within the Unites States – the ability to trek deep into stunning backcountry while spending our nights at comfortable huts with like-minded hikers from across the globe. Our route follows the Appalachian Trail across multiple iconic summits and our nightly lodging includes a comfortable bunk, running water, toilets, hearty meals and outstanding company.
Do you want to see the best of what the Northeast backcountry has to offer in the company of professional and knowledgeable guides, all without carrying a full backpack or sleeping on the ground? This unique tour is the adventure for you!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL 4
Scale of 1-5. 1 is least difficult; 5 is most difficult
This trail features typical New England hiking with steep ascents over short distances with no switchbacks. The second day of this trip starts with a 1200′ ascent in only about 0.7 miles, and this second day has taken our groups 11+ hours on trail. Expect technical, broken terrain that will sometimes require you to use both hands going both up or down. While we are ‘on trail’ all day, the trail is more akin to a continous rock field than a dirt trail for about half of this hike. Thanks to the huts, our packs are on the lighter side and distances are generally short.
