I would prefer to only bring 1-3 lenses with me on this trip because I dont want the extra weight. I was hoping someone could offer their views on what would be best to pack.

I have a Nikon D750.

My lens collection includes:

Tamron FX 90mm macro F2.8

Nikon FX AF-S 50mm 1.8G

Tamron DX 16-300mm F3.5-6.3

Nikon DX kit lens 18-55mm

I also have an Altura 0.43x super wide angle adapter

I was hoping to grab a wide angle lens but time got the best of me and now I wont be able to before the trip.

After more than 15,000 miles on mountain and forest trails, I know I'd be using the 18-55 about 90% of the time. The 50mm might get used for some close-ups, but I doubt that I'd use it enough to bother. The bulk of the photos would be landscape.

Actually, an ultra-wide zoom would suit me better than anything.
