Looking Forward

While it is not yet ‘business as usual’ at Backcountry Journeys, we are still looking ahead and getting ready so that when the time is right, we will be here to travel with you to our country’s National Parks and other incredible locations around the world.

At this time, Backcountry Journeys has suspended all Tours & Workshops with start dates through July 5th, 2020, and we have contacted guests who have been affected.

Backcountry Journeys continues to assess the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis and will adjust timelines as necessary. Please know the current suspension period may be extended if circumstances warrant it. If the suspension period is extended, we will begin reaching out to guests who would be affected, as well. We cannot thank you enough for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times, and we want you to know that while it is difficult to have all the answers during this murky time, we are always happy to help with questions you might have. 

Our team has remained strong and committed to the Backcountry Journeys family, working harder than ever to enhance our overall product as well as focusing on once again providing that same exceptional hospitality and photography instruction that we’re known for out in the field.
