Our son of 14 yrs old spent a week hiking in Yosemite with a relatively small group and with professional staff. Very safe unique experience! Unfortunately not a single bear seen but did see beautiful sunrise on Half Dome

We utilized the Lasting Adventures custom trip to hike to the top of Half Dome at Yosemite National Park for my 50th birthday. We had my 62 yo husband, a 50 yo woman (me), and 24, 22, 19, and 17 yo "kids". We didn't want to have to travel from Atlanta with all of the gear, deal with the permits... More

This was my first time on a backpacking trip with a professional guide and I had an amazing time. Because of Scott, our guide, we stayed in some nice camping spots with awesome views, stopped to capture a few perfect picturesque moments, and he made us some delicious meals. His love for Yosemite and nature was apparent during the trip,... More

This is the third year that my oldest daughter, Skylar, was lucky enough to participate. She loved joining the high school group this year. Her counselor, Lydia, was a true inspiration and Sam, was nothing but fun! She is very excited to get back into the park for another week of adventure. My youngest daughter took a friend this year...

This adventure provided our nephew a positive experience, tested his endurance and strengthened his spirit. It was the highlight of his visit with us. He spent 7 days hiking in the upper Yosemite valley carrying his supplies on his back. The only part that we did not like is the fact that the final meeting spot was changed from the... More

Thank you for the kind words about your nephews experience. It is always our goal to provide an experience that youth will grow from and remember for years to come.

Two of my children (13yr and 15yr) had been on three separate amazing and inspiring trips with Lasting Adventures so when I had the opportunity to sign up for my own trip, I didn't hesitate. Ok, well maybe just a little... since I had zero back-packing experience, I wasn't totally sure of what I was getting myself into. Any concerns... More
