Announcing 2021 Trip Schedule

Seriously, where does the time go?

It feels as if it was only yesterday that we were announcing our 2020 schedule of photography tours, workshops & safaris.

Well, excitement is building around Backcountry Journeys World-Headquarters regarding our 2021 calendar, which we are excited to announce today!

Dates for 2021 are now published for the majority of our most popular trips including Yellowstone, Yosemite, Zion & Bryce, Costa Rica and our signature Alaskan Brown Bears trips, among others.

Look for more on some exciting, yet-to-be-released, itineraries to places such as Brazil, the Oregon coast, as well as Olympic National Park, and others.  

Last year was a big one for Backcountry Journeys and this year looks to be even more exciting with new trips, itineraries, and extensions! It’s certainly looking like it’s going to be a busy summer around here at Backcountry Journeys.

We book all of our activities and lodging over a year in advance, when possible, so as to ensure that we have the best accommodations that we can have for our groups.

Kenton Krueger







Kenton Krueger grew up and spent the first 33 years of his life in the corn country of Omaha, Nebraska. After studying aviation at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Aviation Institute, he “conned” his way into the newsroom at the award-winning Omaha World-Herald where for 3+ years he wrote and photographed news articles on a variety of topics such as community events, travel and even mixed martial arts for the sports department. Yet something was missing. While on backpacking trips to Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Parks in the mid-2000’s he was quick to realize that the wild lands of the western United States stoked a fire in his heart as nothing else could. This realization led to a relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, and he hasn’t looked back. He has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone National Parks as well as in the Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah, mountain biking, and bagging 14ers in Colorado’s San Juan Mountain Mountain Range. Kenton is a trail runner, a former pilot, newspaper photographer, and writer. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.
