This self-guided bicycle tour starts in Split, the city founded by Roman Emperor Diocletian dating back to 300 A.D. This lovely antiquity is coupled with modern conveniences, as there is an international airport just 25 kilometers (less than 16 miles) from Split’s town center. You’ll then visit Brač Island, Croatia’s third largest and the highest island in the Adriatic Sea.

Welcome to this guided hiking, canoeing, cultural and culinary exploration of the beautiful and historic Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. Our adventure will start near the old whaling town of Hudson with a tour of the home of the landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church of the Hudson River School. We’ll then visit the great Jack O Lantern Blaze (fall foliage tours), the Storm King Arts Center and West Point. We’ll go on a hike on the Old Croton Reservoir Trail through Rockefeller State Park to Stone Barns Farm and stop by the Headless Horseman Bridge.
On this trip you can unpack your bags and enjoy day hikes on and around the Matterhorn, known at the Sphinx of the Alps, in Zermatt. Zermatt is in the German-speaking region of the Swiss canton of Wallis. The Matterhorn towers over this area next to the Italian border. Although there are numerous 4,000 meter high peaks nearby, none has quite the same irresistible pull on one’s shutter finger as the Matterhorn, as evidenced by the number of photographs of the Matterhorn that inevitably come home from Zermatt hiking vacations.
This Champlain Valley self-guided bicycling trip offers some of Vermont’s finest touring in what is known as the Land of Milk and Honey. We’ll provide a range of bicycling routes offering choices between moderate and challenging rides in the rolling fertile farmland filled with dairy farms and apple orchards. (There are a few good “ups” – just because it’s a valley doesn’t mean that there are not challenges.) The views of Lake Champlain between the Green Mountains to the east, and the Adirondacks to the west are stunning. You’ll have a chance to explore the towns of Middlebury and Bran
