Wild Yellowstone Llama Trek
Yellowstone National Park, WY5.0 (1 reviews)
- Famous River Valleys
- Abundant Wildlife Habitat
- Remote Wilderness
- Mountain Views
- Vast Meadows
- Pristine Creeks and Rivers
This llama-supported trek takes guests into two of the most wildlife-rich valleys in Yellowstone National Park for a 4-day hiking/camping extravaganza (wildlife viewing is never guaranteed.) We will have the area mostly to ourselves, leaving the crowded highways behind as we venture into a land of vast meadows, pristine rivers and creeks, geothermal phenomena and towering, craggy peaks. Possible wildlife sightings include bison, Pronghorn, elk, deer, moose, black bears, grizzly bears, river otters, wolves, birds of prey and more.
Our route on this trip is also a loop hike, which means we have all new scenery every day. The loop takes us up two river valleys on days 1 and 2, then up to a remote peak on day 3, and finally over a high pass on the final day. Come join us for an unforgettable, llama-supported journey into the remote wilderness of America’s first national park!

1 least solitude, 5 most solitude
We rate this Yellowstone llama trip a solitude 4. You can expect to see a couple other groups of hikers over the duration of the trip, particularly once we’re a couple miles into the backcountry.

If a trip does not reach the minimum number of guests, you may choose to transfer to another trip date or another trip, be refunded your payments in full, or you may have the choice to pay a supplemental fee to run the trip with fewer guests.
