Your Adventure Begins here

With a love for the great outdoors and a lifetime of hunting, fishing, riding, and camping in Idaho’s backcountry, Darl Allred founded Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters in 1997 to share his wilderness passion with others. Over the last two decades, SWO has become the go-to guide for individuals, families, and friends desiring an outdoor excursion in the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains.

After thousands of nights under the stars serving hundreds of clients, Darl recently passed the baton to a new team of outdoorsmen who will carry SWO’s legacy of adventure and service to a new generation of wilderness enthusiasts.
