About Our Llama Program
hiking tour company

We have been the most active hiking and backpacking guide company in Yellowstone National Park for years, and it was always our goal to expand into the Greater Yellowstone Region, which includes the Wind River Range, Jackson Hole area, Absaroka Range, and Beartooth Range in Southern Montana.

In 2013 we met Al and Sondra Ellis, the owners of Highline Trail Llamas: one of the world's premier llama breeding companies, who also ran llama trips in the Wind River Range and Jackson Hole area. After meeting their llamas and learning about the unique and endearing nature llamas bring to backcountry hiking trips, we knew we wanted to start a llama program. We purchased their outfitting business in the summer of 2013.

We partner with local Wyoming llama breeders and outfitters to provide the llamas, while our expert hiking and backpacking guides lead every trip. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us at 800-715-HIKE (4453).

The trip was so wonderful. We can't praise our two guides, Eddie Bower and Kevin Rechless, too highly - they were professional, knowledgable, compassionate and funny. The food was fabulous! (and we all loved the llamas!!)

Absolutely the trip of a lifetime! We enjoyed every single minute. The guides were terrific and getting the know the other people in the group added to the experience. The best part was finding out that we could do things physically that we never imagined we could do!
