Hiking Slovenia and the Julian Alps
August 26, 2018 – September 4, 2018

Slovenia, the first former Yugoslavian state to join the European Union, is culturally rich and stunningly beautiful. The Julian Alps are the easternmost part of the alpine chain that arcs across southern Europe and alpine history and culture are apparent everywhere. Limestone peaks, glacial lakes, and a vibrant capital city mixed with more traditional small towns make this an ideal destination for any woman who loves to combine alpine hiking with learning about local history and culture and sampling traditional Slovenian cuisine. $2895 Rating: 1  2  [3]  4  5

On the Camino de Santiago - Fall
September 6, 2018 – September 16, 2018

We will be hiking the last 103 kms (62 miles) from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, the last section of the traditional pilgrimage route known as El Camino de Santiago. Not a typical hiking trip, we are following an historic pilgrimage route and will be observing some of the pilgrimage traditions that have grown up along the road over the years. $2895 Rating: 1  2  [3]  4  5

Bulgaria's Mountains And Monasteries
September 27, 2018 – October 7, 2018

Bulgaria doesn't have a great reputation in the West, which is both good and a shame. It's a shame because it is a diverse and stunningly beautiful country outside of the cities, with charming small villages, colorful history and culture, and delicious fresh food, much of it organically grown. But it's reputation is a good thing because it means we won't see other American tourists and prices are quite low compared to other countries.  We will visit longstanding monasteries; hike in the Rila, Pirin, and Rhodope mountains; meet the local residents of traditional Muslim villages; and learn about the transition this country is going through. $2195 Rating: 1  2  [3]  4  5

Portugal: Hiking and Culture
September 29, 2018 – October 7, 2018

Portugal is the oldest nation-state in Europe, rich in maritime culture. We will explore ancient castles and other historic sites while hiking a diverse landscape of coastal cliffs, white sand beaches and thick forests. We will also kayak along the coast. $2850 Rating:Rating:   1   2   [3]   4   5.  

Hiking Lodge to Lodge on the AT in Fall
October 21, 2018 – October 26, 2018

There are many ways to hike the Appalachian Trail: day hikes, slackpacking, backpacking, and hut to hut. On this trip, however, we do it in style! We'll go lodge to lodge, staying in the lovely and very different lodges that are conveniently spaced along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, while our luggage is transported by van. This part of the AT is well-graded and well-maintained, with climbs rarely exceeding 500 or 1,000 feet, so it is excellent for novice hikers and anyone who enjoys vistas and abundant wildlife. $1795  Rating: 1  2  [3]  [4]    5
