  • During the summer months, the weather in the Rocky Mountains is unbeatable. Expect to spend days basking in the warm sun. However, the Rockies can cool down a bit at night so we recommend a warm layer and rain gear to ensure you are always comfortable.
  • Accommodations are in ten camps en route. Most camps are located within the national parks. Your guides provide quality tents for you to sleep in on these camping adventure tours. They use a 3 person tent for double occupancy and 2 person tent for single occupancy.
  • Each campsite has toilets ranging from flush toilets to outhouses. Most of the attractions we stop at each day have toilets as well. Some of the campgrounds have hot showers. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll have a shower every night, we can promise that you will have the chance to shower a few times on each of our camping tours and will be able to go for a swim every day.

Participants should be in good physical condition and able to hike several hours per day over a variety of different terrains and elevation gains with a light day pack.
