“This was the hardest, most adventurous, most spectacular trip I’ve ever been on. Our group bested river crossings, sickness, intense sun and constant rain. The Baltoro Glacier is nothing short of extraordinary! We hiked on rocks for virtually the entire trip. They call Concordia the Throne of Gods and even that may not do it justice. Views like no other place on Earth.”

“Exciting. Exhilarating. Empowering… Around each corner and Alpine switchback, the possibilities for adventure felt endless and the journey felt MAGICAL! We were a joyful group of 16; hikers from 30-70 years old, enjoying every moment… Aside from the phenomenal hiking, the snapshots in time were the best parts of the trip; tasting the fresh Alpine cheese, created by the cows we’d just hiked by, arriving to a sleepy French village smelling of baguettes and adventure, and taking a pause in the meadow for a gorgeous picnic of local specialties. Unforgettable!”

“The Galápagos Islands are in one word – fascinating! We wanted to take our 10-year-old to the Galápagos to have her experience this wondrous place. A 7-night cruise meant we were able to immerse ourselves in the outdoors and enjoy this idyllic wildlife escape that can be found nowhere else on Earth. We’ve been back for a few months, and she still can’t stop talking about the trip!”

“I loved everything about this trip! I learned so much about Irish history and culture while sightseeing and hiking along Ireland’s legendary Wild Atlantic Way. We enjoyed beautiful hikes along dramatic seaside cliffs next to verdant fields and countless sheep, as well as two challenging pilgrimage hikes on holy mountains. I’ll never forget the picturesque towns we visited and the fun evenings we spent in local pubs, drinking Guinness and listening to traditional Irish music!”

“Time spent within Peru’s Cordillera Blanca is not a trek by days, but a trek by moments. Moments to feel grateful, moments to feel awed, moments to feel soothed, and moments to feel recharged. Moments when you stand beneath the moon, cradled between mountain peaks, or when the sun rises over your shoulder illuminating the glaciers and valleys with hues of pink and gold.”

“The smell of lavender and wild thyme, the fresh and bountiful food, and the wonderful village-to-village hikes in Les Alpilles, the Luberon, and the Dentelles de Montmirail made for a wonderful adventure in Provence. I really was walking in the footsteps of Cezanne and Van Gogh! The trails were beautiful and I loved rounding a corner to see another stunning medieval village rising up out of the fields. Incredible.”

“The hype for Patagonia—it’s there for a reason, both Chile and Argentina wreak culture on all fronts. From the massive mountains and picturesque landscapes in Torres del Paine, Patagonia, to the fjords and glaciers that dot the waterways onboard an expedition sea cruise, to the equally vibrant noises and colors that brighten up the cities of Santiago and Buenos Aires—if you haven’t been, go now! This region of the world is truly the trifecta to every explorer’s dream offering world-class hiking circuits, national parks and a range of adventure luxury lodging. Go once and you’ll find yourself asking, want to go again next season?”
