This 12-day adventure delves into the culture, history and tastes of the Zapotec people of Mexico.

Alta Via 1, 3 and 4 in the Italian Dolomites


The Dolomites are in the northeast corner of Italy, close to the Austrian border. From the American point of view, the Dolomites are perhaps Europe's most underappreciated mountain range. Despite their proximity to tourist-thronged Venice, not many Americans visit. Too bad. These ramparts of white and pink limestone thrusting up to 10,000 feet from rolling green meadows are more dramatic and esthetic (albeit smaller) than the familiar movie-logo snow-capped peaks of the Alps just to the north. Three-thousand-foot walls attract hard-core rock climbers, while energetic hikers tread a vast network of superb foot trails serviced by a system of rifugios—overnight huts that are really more like small basic hotels, with food, wine, heat, electric lights, bunks, many with hot showers and sometimes even private rooms. The rifugios allow a hiker carrying only a modest pack to stay out on the trail for days or even weeks at a time—an outdoor luxury virtually impossible on this side of the Atlantic.

Date: August 24 - September 9, 2018   Price: From $2853


North of Ireland Hiking Adventure


From Dublin to Shannon by way of Belfast, the Giant's Causeway and Sligo, we'll hike along the gorgeous northern and northwestern coasts of the Emerald Isle, leaving time to taste some whiskey, cook some Irish bread, and learn some prehistoric and Irish history along the way. Each day's stop takes us on a new trail including old smuggling routes, rope bridges and sea cliff views. Each night we snuggle into bed & breakfast inns after traditional music and meals in the local pubs. By the time we arrive in Shannon, we will have visited several UNESCO World Heritage sites, two countries and seen many National Irish Treasures. If Ireland has been calling you, now's the time to answer.

Making Tracks in Patagonia


Join us in Patagonia for an experience you will never forget. Carved by fjords and capped by glistening glaciers, this legendary land is a natural wonderland of extremes—spanning the southern regions of Chile and Argentina to the tip of the South American continent. The towering granite spires of Torres del Paine, and the astonishing ice-blue glaciers of Los Glaciares National Park, offer some of the world's premier hiking and trekking destinations.
