2018 Adventure Vacations

Biking Chile’s Casablanca Valley

One of our favorite ways to experience is a country is by bike. Get your blood pumping on our November 2018 departure, Chile: Biking, Fine Wines, & Easter Island. Pedal through the Casablanca Valley, a thriving cool climate wine region. Swerve through the endless rows of vines and stop at multiple vineyards to taste the wines they create. Winetasting is the perfect way to break up this active day!

Our biking route winds through the scenic Casablanca Valley in Chile’s pre-coastal region.

Summiting Kilimanjaro: the “Roof of Africa”

Embark on a 9-day trek this September up Mount Kilimanjaro on our Mt. Kilimanjaro: A Classic Trek To The Roof of Africa adventure vacation. The climb up this classic peak features spectacular views and you will even catch a glimpse of Uhuru Peak a time or two as you make your way to the summit. With a little training and time for acclimatization, you’ll be up to the challenge as you hike multiple hours each day in high altitude, dazzled by the ever-changing landscapes, and inspired by your fellow trekkers (as well as yourself).
