Fly-in Hikes

Trip Description

The plane buzzes away — you’re left surrounded by 13.2 million acres of pristine mountain wilderness. See what it feels like to be immersed in such mountain splendor, to experience remoteness and solitude with a whole day to explore with your guide.  Since we get picked up at the end of the day, we have the chance to explore the backcountry while only carrying light day-packs and having creature comforts at the end of the day.

These hikes can be a relaxing wilderness escape or a full-blown, strenuous mountain persuit. Each of our fly-in destinations has limitless variety.  If you are interested in a fly-out day hike, contact us and we will plan for a destination that fits your abilities, needs, desires  budget, and objectives.

We work closely with our air service partners to find the right destination for you.  There are possibilities of single back country drop-offs, or daily plane charters which allows us to visit more then one area in a day.

Terrain Challenges May Include:
Each trip will have its own unique set of challenges. If you are prone to motion sickness, you may want to consider flying.

Anyone can enjoy this hike, including families with young children. No prior experience is necessary.

We generally meet our pilots at the airstrip between 8 & 9 am, and get picked up from the backcountry in the late afternoon to early evening. The times are subject to the schedules of our air charter partners.

We will pick you up from your lodging and go to the airstrip with you. Once plans are finalized we will arrange transportation.
