Physical Activity level

Low - The air is thinner at higher altitudes so all physical activity can be a challenge. You should plan to walk for this tour. It is not a stationary/in-car experience beyond driving to a destination, which we will then begin our excursions outside of the vehicles.

Activities

This trip's physical activity is rated Low. Everyone should be capable of walking between 2-5 miles carrying a water bottle or backpack weighing less than 5lbs. At higher elevations, it is common to become short of breath walking.

Your comfort level is our priority so we cater our route, destinations and plans based on your group(all adults, adults+kids, etc). Our guides will personally call you after booking to outline and cover these important details of your group to ensure everyone has an amazing trip. There is no such thing as 1 size fits all excursions, so our focus is on personalization.

What's Included

Professional guide and instruction; snacks; water filter; group cooking gear; group first aid kit; coffee/tea; reservation timed permit fees; binoculars; group photo; candid photography; dad jokes; portrait photography

Every trip is unique, so our excursions are unstructured. Wildlife move, traffic jams happen, and the park is so large our options are vast and plentiful.
