Mt. Whitney & Sequoia National Park Trek

8 DAYS Starting from $9,390 per person

Tackle the highest peak in the contiguous USA on this eight-day Mt. Whitney & Sequoia National Park trekking expedition. Not only will you venture through the pristine backcountry forests of Sequoia National Park, you’ll also trek along sections of the Pacific Crest Trail and the John Muir Trail, two of the most iconic paths in the country. Foxtail pines, sprawling meadows, and alpine lakes define this remote section of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the chance to undergo a pack-assisted trek in this region, leaving you stand hands-free atop the country’s highest peak at 14,495 feet, is an exhilarating experience like few others.
