Food: We provide three meals a day, plus snacks for the duration of your trip. our typical menu consists of a breakfast entree with fresh fruit, coffee, tea and orange juice by the campfire. lunch is packed to go! sandwiches and snacks to put in your saddle bags and bring on your daily adventure! dinners are delicious homemade meals, from chili and dutch oven cornbread to steak and potatoes. Desserts like dutch oven cobblers made over the campfire and ooey gooey s'mores make a great day in the backcountry even better!
LODGING: Stay close to nature in our water-proof, fully floored tents, outfitted with cozy sleeping bags and an inflatable sleeping pad for a more comfortable stay. A canvas, baker's style tent will house our meal times and communal activities, so we can get out of the weather together, and enjoy the campfire cooking!
GUIDED ACTIVITY AND LABOR: Your experienced Yellowstone guides will be responsible for meeting you at the trailhead with riding and pack animals, and loading up our trusty mules with your gear for the trip. Remember - each person is limited to 40 pounds of stuff, including what you put on your saddle! But trust us - you won't be roughing it!
After we're all packed up, we'll match you up with one of our riding horses and show you how to steer, stop and go before we head down the trail to camp.
Once we get to camp, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the park! Our guides are pros at setting up camp and getting dinner ready.
Your guides will wrangle up your horses in the morning and guide you on your adventures each day.
