Sawtooth Portered Base Camp

Want to explore the Sawtooths beyond the typical day hike destinations but don’t feel like shouldering a heavy pack?

We don’t blame you! Carry in a small daypack and leave the rest to us. We will porter in all the equipment and food you need for a comfortable base camp.

Whether fishing, hiking, or off-trail exploration is your goal, our guides will show you some amazing places beyond the reach of the average dayhiker. At night, your guides will whip up delicious food, and our high quality tents, sleeping bags, and pads will ensure a cozy night sleep. And as a certified International Dark Sky Reserve, spending a night under the Sawtooth stars is a one-of-a-kind experience!

If you want to explore the deeper recesses of the Sawtooths without shouldering a heavy load, this is the trip for you! This is also a great option for kids ready to experience the outdoors but groan at the idea of carrying a big backpack.
