Private Full and Half Day Adventures

Want to experience an epic adventure but only have a day or two? We’ve got you covered! Join us for one of our full or half-day private trips in the High Sierra. Take your family or friends rock climbing. Hike to an alpine lake for some cliff jumping. Rappel in the High Sierra, feet dangling over 200 ft of open air, with a beautiful view of the mountains. Embark on a 2-12 day backpacking trip. These experiences are great options for groups. We’ve had bachelor and bachelorette parties, families, church retreats, youth group events, friends, corporate retreats and more. Furthermore, the Summit Lodge is perfect for hosting groups. We are located on Bass Lake, just an hour away from some of the most beautiful wilderness the Sierra has to offer.

Let our experienced guides facilitate an experience for you that you’ll never forget. Here are our options for day trips, but in addition to these choices, remember that we can always create a Custom Course to meet your needs.
