With our application based system, we aim to create harmonious expeditions with a supportive atmosphere, healthy food, and big days that leave you feeling refreshed and utterly exhausted.

create a dream expedition

At Burning Daylight Expeditions, we think thoughtful, custom wilderness experiences are the most memorable.  Whether you have your whole trip planned to the very last detail, or have a vague dream of greeting every sunrise for a week - we can create a Custom Expedition for you.

meet our team

After a combined 20 years of experience instructing people in the backcountry, working for dozens of outdoor education and guiding companies, we did not find an ethos that fully inspired the harmony of science, magic, and grit that is the wildflower to our hillside. Burning Daylight Expeditions is an accumulation of our invaluable professional and life experiences and is centered around the idea that to care about a place means to know it, and to know it means to learn about it. We educate for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world.
