This rugged three-week expedition is WA’s ultimate adventure and one of the most challenging and physically-demanding programs that we offer. Spend 16 consecutive days in the backcountry as you backpack and sea kayak through the most remote wilderness in the lower 48 states! As you navigate The Thorofare trail over 10 days, you will trek through grassy meadows and across winding streams, all while being surrounded by beautiful mountainous views. The backpacking trek will end on the shores of Yellowstone Lake, where a re-supply boat will take your backpack and trade it for a kayak! You will then continue the adventure by water and spend 6 days kayaking on Yellowstone Lake perfecting your paddling techniques and experiencing Yellowstone from a different perspective. This is the perfect trip to hone in on backcountry skills and take the next step as an avid outdoor recreationalist!

My favorite part of this trip was the nature – just being so immersed in all that beauty for so long without any distractions.
