The MT Sobek Experience
MT Sobek pioneered adventure travel in 1969, following early climbs in Yosemite Valley by original founder Allen Steck. Today we remain true to our heritage and offer classic hiking and rafting adventures in the America’s treasured National Parks, from Yellowstone & Grand Teton to Joshua Tree, Arches to Denali. On your journey, you’ll enjoy an immersive experience as you explore hidden places, follow epic National Park trails, all in the company of expert local guides who offer an insider perspective. We also make sure that you eat great food and sleep well in comfortable accommodations, while we take care of the logistics every step of the way.
We work with local professional guides who are passionate about going further, adding expert insight, and providing natural and historical context to your National Park experience. Our guides are also friendly, enthusiastic, and great at tuning into your specific needs. This means that you’ll not only experience more, you’ll also have more fun.
There is nothing better than being out on the trail or rafting rapids, feeling the breeze on your face and the rush of a spectacular view. Hiking and rafting days generally start early, after breakfast, and cover around 5 to 15 miles per day. Some hikes may be steep, but there are plenty of rest stops on the way—plus a hearty lunch and dinner (per your itinerary).
From iconic National Park lodges (right inside the parks!) to classic ranches to stunning resort hotels and deluxe camps, we have insider access to the most sought-after accommodations in the American West—even ones that always seem to be sold out! You’ll be amazed by the possibilities.
We offer a range of custom adventures throughout the United States, developed from the ground up by our A-list custom adventure team to make your travel dreams a reality. Our most popular custom adventure tours include Southwest National Parks, Northern California, and Yellowstone & Grand Teton.
