SPECIAL INTERESTS

ACTIVE & ADVENTURE

Epic. That’s really the only way to describe the active adventures that await travelers in America’s National Parks, California and Alaska. We say it often but it’s true: these are the best outdoor playgrounds in the world. Made to be hiked, biked, rafted, ridden, skied, scaled, fished, flown over and more. Many wonders await those who go further and push harder, like secret canyons, secluded lakes, unimaginable vistas and elusive wildlife. And the options go beyond hiking, biking and rafting. Why not try sand sliding at Great Sand Dunes National Park? Or canyoneering near Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks? A surfing lesson off the white sand beaches of Carmel? Or putting sports cars through their paces at the Sonoma Raceway?

You don’t have to be an ironman (or ironwoman) to have an active vacation: there are options for all ages and levels of athleticism and experience. Our guides excel at helping you find your pace, and safety is always their top priority. Their other priority? To get the adrenaline pumping and the smiles beaming for you and every member of your family on your active vacation.

After some downtime relaxing and enjoying the beach, you’ll enjoy a private guided shoreline horseback ride. Imagine the waves crashing around you, the smell of salt air and the sun setting in the distance. A truly breathtaking end to a spectacular day!
