Backpacking and Fly Fishing with Llamas - Alumni

Relive your fondest memories of Wyoming's Wind River Mountains with your family.  This alumni trip travels into the Wind Rivers using Llamas to transport the majority of our gear as you shoulder a light pack of necessities.

We'll cover basic wilderness skills including navigation, cooking, and Leave No Trace techniques.  There will be time for fly fishing, photography, hiking and enjoying the beautiful surroundings of these majestic mountains. This is a great way to introduce your children, parents and friends to the essence of a NOLS course. Ages ten and up. Trip starts and ends in Lander, Wyoming.



*Llamas carry most of the weight, but mountain hiking is challenging.
