OUR MISSION STATEMENT
A John Muir quote posted on the top of Clingman’s Dome reads, “Thousands of tired, nerve shaken, over-civilized people, are beginning to find that going to the mountains is going home.” This wisdom still holds true, but the paradox is that today most easily accessible front country attractions are overcrowded with people, which can undermine the beauty and solitude of the mountains John Muir realized in his time. For this reason, one must leave the beaten path and explore the remote backcountry wilderness, where the true grandeur of the mountains still endures. Traditionally only those who posses extensive backcountry skills and expensive equipment can achieve this.
However, at Highlander Expeditionary Tours, LLC, we believe that the backcountry should not only be reserved to those select few. It is our mission at HET to provide experienced guides and exclusive resources for our clients, so that they too can experience the majesty and seclusion of the backcountry in a safe, enjoyable and environmentally responsible manner.
