I never write reviews despite being a very active traveler. I feel compelled to respond so favorably to the trek I just finished with Lasting Adventures. Without saying what our group saw was memorable, but it everything else that made the most impression. Hearing what the guides do for their youth program is inspiring. Their professionalism is unquestioned, yet their enthusiasm is infectious. The companies logistics (food, equipment, scheduling, administration) were all top knot. My fellow hikers came from very diverse places and backgrounds. By trips end, we seemed to be an experienced, bonded team thanks to the instruction from our guides. I highly recommend Lasting Adventure to anyone considering a guided Yosemite experience. Kevin from Oregon

Just back from the 5 day Yosemite Icons backpacking trip and was the experience of a lifetime! Mostly away from all the crowds with challenging hikes which provided fantastic views of our most beautiful National Park! Our guides, Aida and Caber were great leaders, imparting their knowledge of the back country, plants and trees, along with history and geology of Yosemite. The back country meals were healthy and delicious and they were very accommodating to my plant based vegan diet. We camped in beautiful and private back country spots alongside a mountain river which provided good relaxing and swimming spots after a long day hiking. I used their gear which included tents, back packs, sleeping bags and pads and hiking poles which all were top quality.!

A fairly strenuous route that was made incredible and less strenuous by our two wonderful guides. The food was amazing and both Trey and Morgan were very pleasant, patient, and great with both my kids. We were so lucky to have been paired with them. What an amazing gift I was able to give my kids. I highly recommend Lasting Adventures. They thought of everything to make this trip memorable.

I have booked 2 trips with Lasting Adventures now. One for my son, he did a 2 week teen back packing trip in 2021. And one for me, I completed a 1 week backpacking trip in Yosemite this year. Both trips exceeded my expectations! The guides are amazing. 10 out of 10! Highly recommend! Well worth the cost!

I am so delighted to have accomplished my goal of hiking the 5 day Yosemite Icons Backpacking trip. It was personally challenging, meaningful and amazingly beautiful. At 54 and recently back in hiking shape, it was quite the reward to experience completing the journey and taking in parts of Yosemite's beauty that few travel. I know I could not have had this experience without an incredible guide, Will, who made our journey stress free, fun and filled with great meals and interesting conversations. I had the luxury of just following his steps and just take in all that Yosemite offers those willing to go off the beaten path knowing that we were in good hands. Each day we were presented with options and choices to customize the day ahead. Will is a master at cooking flavorful dishes on the trail which were a real treat for our group. This is my second experience with Lasting Adventures and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are exceptional in professionally guiding, educating, promoting stewardship, using quality equipment and cultivating the love of the outdoors and our own individual experience in it. I look forward to returning again. Thank you Will and thank you Lasting Adventures 🤗.

I, along with 3 other 50 year old guys, signed up for the icons backpacking trip as a bucket list experience. From the very beginning, Last Adventures made it very enjoyable. From the time we signed up until the time we showed up in Yosemite, Scott at Lasting Adventures was extremely communicative and very patient with what were probably childish questions. Once we arrived, we were treated to Jenna, who was our guide for the trip. Not only was she knowledgeable, but she was extremely personal, very professional, organized beyond comprehension, and an outstanding cook! She alone made the experience first class. As for the trip itself, it was physically demanding, but not so tough that we didn’t enjoy it. The “icons” of Yosemite were truly amazing and something everyone should see. I would highly recommend Lasting Adventures for your excursion to Yosemite.

We just finished our 5-day, 4-night hike in Yosemite, and I can’t say enough positive things about Lasting Adventures and our guide, Kara. Our family group ranged in age from 11 to 76 (the latter being in exceptionally good shape for his age). I wasn’t sure we would be able to complete the 35-mile trek when I first lifted my fully loaded backpack, but with Kara’s guidance and enthusiasm, we did it. She reviewed our equipment, gave us packing advice, and showed us the map of our itinerary – and then we were off! Throughout our time in the back country, Kara was knowledgeable about hiking, supportive whenever anyone had a problem, and informed about the history of Yosemite. And her history as a teacher/counselor was clear in her easy engagement with our kids.

Our route was stunning – from Tuolumne Meadows to the tops of Yosemite Falls and El Capitan, Eagle Peak, Snow Creek, and various gorgeous views of Half Dome, etc. Her pace was just right. She’d have us up early with coffee and breakfast and get us packed up so we’d be off by 9am. Then we’d hike and have a delicious lunch in the field – typically at an amazing site overlooking the entire valley. We stopped at creeks and rivers to cool off and collect water – and she’d point out different plants and animals along the way. When we got to our camp site each night, she made impressive gourmet meals while teaching us about nature and Yosemite history and legends.

I strongly recommend Lasting Adventures to anyone looking for an in-depth experience in one of our most spectacular national parks.
