Find Your Adventure


We like to use the modern generation of “Fat Bikes”. These bikes are the beach cruisers of the mountain world! You’ll be able to hold a steady line in soft sand and dirt as well as float over gravel and rough stuff. Ride the high Sierra trails and off-road tracks with ease on these sensational new bikes with fat 4 – 5 inch tires.

Go uphill, go downhill, go flat, go Fat … Biking!


Take a walk in the woods, alongside an alpine stream, around a mountain lake, over sandy dunes or across the high desert. See the ruins of old mines, look up at tall conifers, down into ravines, spot fauna and flora, inhale the scent of nature and exhale the stress of an all too busy life.

Step out into the Eastern Sierra!

Rock Climb

As well as great mountains the east side of the Sierra also has an enviable wealth of rock climbing: white granite at Whitney Portal, the pocketed volcanic rock of Deadman’s Summit, sculptured domes at Granite Basin, and the well known Owens Gorge. Just out of Bishop, the Buttermilks are one of the most aesthetic places anywhere to learn the basics of rock climbing, just a stroll from the car.

Regardless of the time of year, there’s always a place to climb in the Eastern Sierra.


Experience the quiet of the wilderness in winter with a guided snowshoe hike. Enjoy an easy stroll among the conifers alongside frozen streams and lakes or tackle a more strenuous ascent of a nearby peak. Opportunities for all ages and experience levels exist to get you close to nature in the crisp mountain air of an Eastern Sierra winter.


Bike, hike, climb or go for a leisurely float down the Owens River. If you have only a few hours or even a few days we can create an adventure that’s just right for you. Do more than one activity in a day, or take a couple of days to really get into the one you’ve always wanted to do. There’s so much to do it’s only limited by your imagination.

People Are Saying…

Despite living in Bishop for 20 years, I’d never been to the Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills. Riding a Fat Bike (a light-weight mountain bike with 5-inch-wide tires), at times over a roller-coaster terrain of loose, decomposed granite, was a fun way to get there. Our friendly guide, Gigi, was good at providing what riders needed, whether it was coaching, information such as plant identification or geology, or a Clif Bar to perk you up. It was a beautiful day in the Alabama Hills, and everyone had a great time!


I’ve been on several trips with SP and they’re always well-organised, fun and safe. He has a host of local knowledge (he’s known as “Local Legend SP” for a reason!) and he truly cares about people enjoying themselves in the stunning surroundings.

All the dealings I’ve had with Sierra Adventure Centre have been well organised, thorough and aimed at having fun, lead by a truly enthusiastic team.


Fantastic fun with SMC! If you aren’t familiar with a Fat Bike, it is essentially a mountain bike with oversized tires that allows you to get around easier in sand and on snow. We had such a great guided tour, fun single track, great food and an awesome way to enjoy the outdoors!
