The Flat Tops Wilderness is the summer home of one of the largest elk herds in North America and this vast backcountry offers hundreds of square miles to explore.

There are countless lakes and streams that offer the angler great fishing opportunities.  Native Cutthroat, Brookies or Brook Trout, Browns and Rainbows can all be found in this area.  By the way, our guides love to fish!

Welder pack trips are easily tailored to each family or group.  Whether it is horseback riding, fishing, or just exploring, every trip is customized so that each group can pursue their special interests. From a base camp, we can venture out on daily forays to explore the surrounding area. Different activities are planned for each day, returning late afternoon for relaxing and dinner in camp.

Progressive trips are perfect for those who want to see as much of this beautiful wilderness as possible.  Each morning we pack up and head to a new destination and stop along the way in the most scenic areas.  We can also customize a combination of services - progress at a comfortable pace and still include several camp.
