  It's been more than three decades since we first resolved to explore the planet actively—and to share that passion with our guests. And during the past 34 incredible years, we've kept our promise of redefining what a family vacation can be and bringing you a better way to discover and connect with the world.
  Dear Traveler,

Still wondering where to go on your family's summer vacation? Consider two of my top picks for family adventures: Québec Multisport and Maine Biking.

With their rich history and outstanding natural areas—like glacier-carved fjords, arctic tundra, boulder-strewn beaches and dunes—it's no surprise that Québec and Maine offer all the ingredients for an extraordinary family vacation. Our kid-oriented diversions range from rock climbing to blueberry picking, and whale watching to kayaking. You'll also appreciate the easygoing routes that suit kids' abilities and attention spans, our elegant family-friendly hotels, and a wonderful range of culinary experiences, from sophisticated French-Canadian specialties to an authentic Maine lobster pound. And at every turn, you'll have the satisfaction of seeing your kids broaden their horizons while having the time of their lives!

Give us a call us at 800-462-2848—our Trip Consultants are available to answer your questions daily from 7 am to 5 pm Pacific time, or visit us at
