Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides

SYMG was started in 1991 by three friends offering hiking trips into California’s mountains in hopes of more closely meshing lifestyle with work. The combination proved successful and SYMG has become a leader in the active travel and mountain guiding world, providing carefully planned and executed trips in the most spectacular wilderness areas of California and beyond. Now, over 30 years later, we’ve shown thousands of people the beauty of Yosemite and the High Sierra and have been named as one of the “Best Outfitters on Earth.” SYMG has been recognized nationally and internationally for our hand-crafted adventures.


$525 for a day of Privately Guided Hiking in Yosemite all the way to $6595 for our 23-day John Muir Trail treks from Yosemite to Mt Whitney.
