One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we operate. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe and close to home in Utah. With our office and home base in Utah, we are working on a number of local projects that guests can get involved with.

HOP is proud to support 30 local veterans and their families with deliveries of food and gift cards during the holiday season through our Veterans Outreach Program. Our newest local program, HOP Outdoors, runs summer hiking trips in Utah’s Wasatch Mountains to give underserved local children the chance to get outdoors and build a healthy connection with nature.

Recommended Flights:

Our travel expert, Danny Genung at Harr Travel is more than happy to review the many flight options. You can reach him at or 909.266.0117.

The benefit of using a travel agent is that in the event of itinerary changes, the travel agent will find the best flight connections and arrangements for you. Though third-party travel websites are convenient, we do not recommend using them due to instability in the itineraries. We also recommend that you protect your flight with travel insurance and a refundable ticket.

Health & Safety:

Our stringent commitment to safety means you have access to our medically certified guides before and throughout your trip. Our staff also carries emergency medical equipment such as satellite phones and medical kits.

Travel Insurance:

We recommend purchasing travel insurance, which will protect you in the event of an unanticipated cancellation of your trip, and depending on the plan you choose, can refund all the costs already paid (including flights, trip costs, and your payment to us). Please note: you must purchase this plan within 14 days of your deposit payment. There are three plans that we recommend choosing from: Cavalry, Rip Cord or Harbor. Please send us a copy of your plan if you choose to purchase one.

At headquarters in Salt Lake City, our staff  is dedicated to helping you every step of the way.

In many parts of the world, gratuities are given in appreciation for a job well done. Our guides will take care of tipping service personnel along the way so that you don’t have to think about it.

For any additional services outside of our itinerary, plan to tip 10% (transport, restaurants, baggage, lodges, etc). We will provide you a tipping guide once you sign up for a trip.

At the trails end you will have the opportunity to contribute to a group tipping pool that will be presented to your WWTrekking guides and trekking staff as we say our goodbyes.

Capitol City:

Salt Lake City


Utah, where the Rocky Mountains, Great Basin, and Colorado Plateau converge, boasts extremely diverse and stunning geography. Although most of this western state experiences a semi-arid or desert climate, the many mountain ranges offer a large variety of additional climates. From high alpine forest filled to vast deserts filled with humbling sandstone towers, walls, and arches, Utah’s landscapes are numerous and awe-inspiring. Utah is home to 5 National Parks, 4 national monuments, and 4 state parks. The capitol of Utah, Salt Lake City, gets its namesake from the Great Salt Lake which is the largest salt water lake in the Western Hemisphere with a salinity far saltier than seawater.

Culture & Religion

Salt Lake City, Utah is the world headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, making Utah the only state in the U.S. that has a majority population belonging to a single church. The industries that make up Utah’s diverse economy include mining, oil and gas development, tourism, agriculture and cattle ranging, salt production, and a quickly growing tech industry. Additionally, there are 6 Native American tribes in Utah today, the Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Ute, Shoshone, and Uintah and Ouray Tribes.
