Guided Multi-day ultralight
adventures for hikers and runners.

Have you ever wanted to run or hike all day and not be constrained by having to get back to the car by dark?

Have you looked at the map and wished that 50 mile loop through the wilderness was possible in a quick weekend getaway?

Enter Fastpacking

What to expect

When you come on a trip with Wilderness Fastpacking, we make sure your pack is so light that you can jog the flats and the downs.

This is not masochism. You will be carrying everything you need to stay warm, comfortable, and fed. They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but we disagree.


Registration for our 2021 fastpacking season is open.

Find a trip, sign up, and we’ll do the rest to make your fastpacking dreams a reality.

In America wilderness is not only an idea, it is a hard line on the map. Our government has set aside hundreds of tracts of public land so that they may be preserved in their primeval state forever. At Wilderness Fastpacking we seek out massive and awe inspiring wild lands. Where mountain lakes, rivers, peaks, and old growth forest dominate. Where you can cook your dinner 20 miles from the nearest road. Where you can connect with the Earth as it was, and your soul can flourish. We believe these places can be preserved while at the same time providing life changing experiences for the people who care enough to continue to preserve them. 

Fastpacking and large  swaths of wilderness lands are the perfect marriage. Lightweight packs and guides who have the skills and who know the land intimately will allow you to use your limited time to see more drop dead gorgeous wild country than you thought possible. We hope you’ll join us.
