Gear up for stunning Mount Diablo hike on Saturday April 7, 2018! From the lush meadows of Mitchell Canyon we'll hike a less-traversed 8 mile loop trail on the mountain's north side. Our path rises up into the chaparral and offers hikers a chance to summit one of Mount Diablo State Park's roadless peaks, and enjoy iconic views of the Bay Area. We've also chosen this hike to coincide with the area’s peak wildflower bloom, so be sure to bring along your camera!
Join the Mountain Travel Sobek team on March 29, 2018, for an exciting evening with Slovenia expert Luka Poznic. As manager of our local operations in Slovenia, Luka has been instrumental in putting Slovenia on the map for MTS with classic trips like Hiking Slovenia's Julian Alps and Istria to Venice—A Culinary Route, plus our new trip for 2018 Hiking the Alpe Adria. Being a mine of knowledge on everything Slovenian, he'll lead us on a journey through the country from the alpine lakes and mountains of Triglav National Park and the underground caves of the Karst to the shimmering waters of the Adriatic coastline. He'll also discuss the country's food and wine scene, and may even bring a tipple to enjoy! This is your chance to ask anything about Slovenia and find out why it's one of Europe's best-kept secrets.

Hear tales from Mountain Travel founder Allen Steck, who will be signing his new book A Mountaineer's Life at the Mountain Travel Sobek office in Emeryville, California, on Thursday December 14, 2017 from 5:30pm. His stories are from the days when mountain climbing was discovery, when men like Steck forged new routes, both literal and literary. With dry humor and detailed recall, Steck captures the excitement and intrigue of a time when there were few rules and no guidelines.
