Basecamping trips start and end with a scenic bush plane flight through the Wrangells. After landing at one of our backcountry locations, your guide will help you set up a cozy camp within a short hike of the dropoff. These trips focus on enjoying the remote locations by day hiking with light packs and enjoying meals with amazing backdrops.
Basecamping trips are great for families, groups with mixed interests, or those looking for a wilderness adventure without carrying heavy backpacks. Day hikes can range from a mellow amble, to a demanding full day, depending on what you’re looking for.
