Find new challenges while exploring Wyoming’s mountains
Join a group of peers ages 23+ to backpack through Wyoming’s Wind River Range, home to the original NOLS course. Designed to fit into your busy schedule, this two-week expedition is an opportunity to take a break from your daily routine to explore a beautiful and remote wilderness environment. While your expedition will be supported by packhorses to cut down on pack weight, expect to challenge yourself each day.
Starting with the basics, learn how to live comfortably in the wilderness, from cooking tasty meals on a camptove to navigating off-trail in the mountains. Hike along high ridges and summit glacier-carved peaks. Hone your navigation skills as you find your way to the next campsite. On layover days, go fly fishing on clear, blue lakes. Fall asleep listening to marmots whistle and wind blowing through lodgepole pines.
This expedition isn’t a guided tour—it’s an opportunity to develop the skills you need to explore the wilderness independently. As you build community with a new team, gain the confidence and experience to lead your family and friends in the outdoors. Put your leadership skills into practice in a new setting, and get ready for your next adventure.
