Hiking, cycling, and wine tasting. Throw in some gourmet meals and spectacular fall colors and you have an autumn trip to remember in New Hampshire.
Steeped in more than 100 years of tradition, the AMC’s network of mountain huts provides a unique backcountry adventure for novice and experienced hikers alike as well as convenient lodging for Appalachian Trail hiking. Each a day’s hike apart along the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, AMC Huts offer mountain hospitality in spectacular locations above tree line or near mountain lakes or waterfalls.
On this trip you’ll also enjoy three days of cycling along scenic back roads on gently rolling terrain. Stop for a break by a covered bridge or scenic waterfall. Take a dip in a cool mountain lake. What a great way to work up an appetite for some delicious New England seafood. Give us a call or email for more information or to book this trip.
Cycling and Wine in Italy (Fall 2012)
Imagine staying in your own private Italian villa nestled in the hills of Tuscany. In the morning your group hops on their bicycles and travels to a small village for lunch and wine tasting. Returning to the villa in the early evening you find that the chef has already started preparing the evening meal. After a glorious Italian dinner featuring fresh pasta, homemade bread and more wine you retire to your private room to plan the next day. Should you head for the Mediterranean or just swim in the villa’s pool? More easy cycling or are you up for a challenge? So many choices and all the time you need to do them all. If you can see your group in Italy contact us to make it a reality this fall.
Moab, Mountains and More (April 3-7, 2013)

This trip will be the perfect welcome to spring! The Red Cliffs Lodge with its expansive mountain views by the Colorado River will be our home base. From there we’ll mountain bike the legendary trails, hike through Arches National Park, go horseback riding, meander the adorable village of Moab and just relax in the gorgeous natural surroundings.
