Definitions:
Basecamp: Camp every night at our secret wilderness camp location and explore the surrounding areas.
Basecamp to Basecamp: Move camp between two basecamps with a night of "roughing it" in between. Cover more ground while allowing ample time to explore.

We reserve the right to cancel any tour that does not meet the 8 guest minimum. Communications will be made 90 days prior to the start of the tour. 

 

Difficulty:

No experience necessary for any Go Wild experiences. That's the point! Our upscale trips use mules to pack gear. Easy: Great for young kids & families. Hike 5-7 miles, 1000' to 2000' elevation gain to basecamp.

Moderate: Hike 5-7 miles a day, 1000' to 2000', and move camp between two basecamps. These trips involve one middle night at a location without a prepared basecamp.

Nearest Airports:

BOI- Boise International, Boise, ID / PDT- Eastern Oregon Regional Airport, Pendleton, OR

The Typical Itinerary:

Evening Before Tour: Meet at Dan's for an evening "meet & greet" bash to talk logistics and get to know each other over beverages and music. Contact us for discounts at local hotels

Day 1: Depart Baker City for 1.5hr drive to the trailhead. Our hike leads us into the wilderness where a private camp awaits.

Day 2: Settled in at camp, explore the surrounding lakes and peaks with your guide or relax at camp. 

Day 3: Explore the surrounding lakes and peaks with your guide or relax at camp. 

Day 4: Hike out of the wilderness.
