The best way to see some of nature’s wonders, and sometimes a bit of prehistory, is with experienced and knowledgeable guides. With organized itineraries to make sure the highlights of each area are covered and accommodations and transportation all arranged, it is an easy way to pack more into a vacation than you thought possible. Food is also covered, sometimes selected local cuisine, but more often wonderful food prepared by the guides that will surprise you.
We visit some of the last of the great wide open places in the USA, ranging from the deserts of the southwest to the Arctic Ocean, from the lowest place in North America to the highest. Our specialty is local knowledge, of the people who are there now and the people who were there before, of the trails and views, of the plants and animals that call these places home.
None of our trips are extreme, but all require some fitness, we spend a lot of time walking – or sometimes paddling – to places few get to see, and enjoying lunch in spectacular settings.
Included in all of our trips is all food, lodging, and transportation during the trip. You are responsible for transportation to/from the origin and end point on each trip. Some of our trips use local lodging, chosen for its location, access to each day’s activities, and facilities. On those, all you need is your personal gear and daypack. On other trips too far from roofs and walls, we provide tents, you would need to bring your own sleeping bag. The description of each trip has a gear list so you can come prepared.
We travel in these places because we love them, and we truly enjoy sharing them with others, and to watch the surprise, pleasure, and awe in the eyes of travelers who come with us. So browse and dream, we look forward to having you travel with us.
