We are re-starting our adventure tours in 2023! With lots of enthusiasm we have completed the planning for our most popular small group tours with fixed dates and rates for the upcoming season. Visit our dates and rates page for an overview of all tours available in 2023.
There are more than the main tours featuring the famous National Parks in the Utah Canyons and the area around Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. In addition, we offer well tested tours that are rated as wonderful adventures, and, as a matter of fact, you will not find them anywhere else.
Look at the Pacific Northwest Explorer with highlights along the Pacific Ocean. This includes the rarely visited Northern California coast, the Redwoods, the breathtaking Oregon coast and the western part of the Washington State with Olympic National Park. Or decide on the Oregon Trail Dreams tour. It starts in Portland travels through all of Oregon and includes all the “Seven Wonders of Oregon”. Alternatively, explore our Southwest Adventures or Native Trails tour, both traveling through Southern Arizona and New Mexico.
A special THANK YOU! to the wonderful guests who have explored with us the natural wonders of the west in 2022! Travel has been very much restricted due to Covid-19, however, we still were able to safely guide you on several of our tours! A big thank you also to the many of you who have returned nearly every other year for another adventure tour to different destinations! We would not be here without you…
