San Juan Islands: Multi-Adventure * Lodge Based*
Hike, Bike & Kayak

Dates: July-Aug-Sept • Price: $1769

The San Juan Islands of Washington state were named by the National Historic Preservation as one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations! Enjoy an active week discovering the magic of this special place: Sea kayak to explore hidden beaches, quiet coves and view marine life. Hike through the old-growth forests on Orcas Island to the top of the highest mountain in the San Juans … huge vistas! Then bike along the rolling, pastoral hillsides of Lopez Island. Visit our island organic specialty farms raising Alpaca for wool, Lavender farms and local wineries. Retire each evening to private lodging. This is a wonderful way to experience the best of these “sparkling gems of the Pacific Northwest”!

…the experience was fun and the fresh air and islands were exhilarating. Everything (including the food) was wonderful!!… it was refreshing, invigorating and I felt very comfortable with the ladies, all of whom I’d never met previously. But it was the shared laughter that struck a chord for me, the memories still bring a smile to my lips. >> READ MORE

Yellowstone awaits the winter adventurer with a wonderland of sights and experiences. Explore a quiet, pristine winter wilderness full of elk, bison, moose, deer, and coyotes. Experience Yellowstone’s warm winter heart as steam from its famed geysers and hot pools make geologic changes in the landscape. Thousands of acres of protected parkland provide access to miles of backcountry and track trails for the novice or experienced skier (no experience necessary). Each day will provide an opportunity to practice cross-country technique through ski instruction and escorted ski tours. The parkland provides vistas of incredible beauty … frozen lakes, wildlife in abundance, Old Faithful geyser, and thousands of thermal features. Visit Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. Enjoy premier accommodations within the park, gourmet dining, evening lounging, and the camaraderie of other ski adventurers. Optional: Yellowstone Grand Canyon Tour.

Just wanted to express my appreciation. I consider the week a quadruple whammy! Great physical activity in the splendor of a winter wonderland filled with thermal features and animal sightings surrounded by valued female camaraderie.
