Amazing experience. Three day guided backpacking trip to Shining Rock. Extremely knowledgeable and capable guide, awesome food, gorgeous views and some of the most rewarding hiking you can do. Equipment is provided and it’s solid equipment - clean, well maintained and easy to carry. Highly recommended experience. Great proximity to Asheville means you can extend your trip and enjoy everything else Asheville has to offer as well.

I can’t say enough about how great our experience was with Wildland! Our accommodations and meals were fabulous. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area including plants, animals, geology and history. Our guide was also a great listener and let us travel at the speed that was best for us. I the views, hikes and experiences were sensational!

I am brand new to backpacking and this trip provided the perfect introduction to what I believe will be a lifetime hobby for me. I now have a much better understanding of the gear needed, what to pack (and what not to), how to prepare food in the bank country, how to set up camp, etc. Beyond the learning, this trip was a TON of fun. I could not have hoped for a better guide than Francisco. Beyond his tremendous experience and knowledge, his energy and sense of humor made the trip so much more enjoyable. Lastly, the most surprising positive of the trip was the food! I was expecting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and trail mix but was pleasantly surprised that we got to enjoy some really great meals that rival anything I can make in my kitchen at home!

We took the 5-day inn-to-inn tour with WIldland Trekking. It was a fantastic experience! Our guide, Kyle, was super knowledgeable about the trees we were seeing and took us for some amazing hikes with great views! Please be sure to train hard on your cardio as the first day's hike is pretty strenuous. The hotels they put you at are fantastic! Our guide, Kyle, had us at fantastic restaurants every night and also prepared very yummy lunches every day. He also had fantastic places to stop each day for lunch! This trip was absolutely amazing. The views are gorgeous! This was a fantastic trip and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves to hike but likes to sleep in a real bed at night.
