Best of the West

I recently had the pleasure of doing the "Best of the West" through World Expeditions/ATW. I must commend to you the most excellent experience we had with our tour leader. He was exceptional in his attention to detail, his knowledge, his sense of humour and his thorough professionalism. Well done and thanks for a truely marvellous trip.

John Muir Trail sectional hikes

If you prefer the option of hiking without a full pack, then you may like to consider one of our John Muir Trail sectional hikes.These range from 8 to 11 day trips, there are 4 to choose from and are run over consecutive seasons. Rather than carry a full pack, these hikes are supported by pack mule, so you can walk in comfort with a light day pack. Section 3 will commence in August 2014, with the South Lake to Red's Meadow 11 day hike. For further details please check our website.
