Why We Love the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

May 11, 2017 by MTS Team

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River isn't just a trip. It's something deeper: a journey of no return that makes us bolder and braver. This collection of staff testimonials captures a few personal perspectives that demonstrate why we love the Middle Fork—and often recommend it as a first-time adventure with Mountain Travel Sobek. Interestingly, many who ride the Middle Fork once return with family, friends, and in many cases the next generation of adventure travelers. See you on the river!


The Pros and Cons of UNESCO Heritage Sites

May 07, 2017 by Allie Roqueta

Twitter Travel Chats are a great way to get advice from fellow adventurers on where to go, what to see, and how to get there. That's why we love staying in tune with the latest of the myriad of chats that are out there. This month we visited the original source for travel talks on Twitter with the travel community's biggest Twitter chat, #TTOT, covering the Pros and Cons of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

When I First Fell For the Arctic

February 06, 2017 by Nathaniel Wilder

"On a bouncy flight north over an eastern section of the Brooks Range, I press my cheek against the glass to get a better view down to the teeming mass of caribou moving through the valley directly beneath the plane. It’s a hot day just after the summer solstice. Slowly we spiral down to parallel a dry, overgrown channel of the Kongakut River, a couple of miles beyond the herd. The beefy tundra tires on our Cessna six-seater make contact, and we quickly come to a stop at the end of the strip marked with an old caribou shed. This will be our put-in for an 80-mile paddle to a remote reef on the edge of the Arctic Ocean."


Hiking the Smuggler's Trail in Patagonia

February 02, 2017 by Carolyn McCarthy

"When I first laid eyes on Patagonia after having lived in the Rockies, I knew I’d found the wilder West. A vast empire of shifting landscapes, the very sight of it sets off a pressing itch to go exploring. Golden steppe, glaciers and deep forest wrapped around countless unnamed peaks, these landscapes are larger than life. To be there, immersed, is to belong to something greater."
