AS NEAR OR FAR AS YOU WANT TO BE
More Shuttles & Space to Spread Out
As the leader in active and adventure travel, we’ve always run our trips with multiple vans, allowing us to be in more places at once. We’ll be going further this year, making changes to ensure that you have space to stretch out when taking a lift in the van and the flexibility to do what you want every day. And when appropriate, we’ll use even more shuttles to give hikers extra flexibility to start and end with more space between travelers.
No bus tours here: our trips have always been small, offering plenty of opportunities to socialize without being squeezed together. In 2020 we expect our average group size to be around 10. We've reduced our maximum group size so that no trip will exceed 20 guests.
Great news: single supplement pricing has been reduced for all departures, should you prefer a private room.
Ultimate Flexibility for Meals
As always, the vast majority of our meals are included. We’ll work to ensure you have the flexibility to dine as you wish: together as a group or on your own. Grab-and-go breakfast? No problem. Lunch in nature, Backroads picnic style? More than ever. Dinner with friends, a table for two, or simply room service? It's your choice. In general, we’ll avoid large tables as we build in more opportunities to taste the best the region has to offer and to socialize however you feel comfortable.
Social or on Your Own–Your Choice
Group activities, including cultural events, will be as optional as ever this season, with no pressure to join but with every precaution taken should you choose to partake. If you prefer not to attend our group route raps, not a problem—we’ll deliver the information to you personally. And our GPS units on biking trips and written directions on hikes give you the freedom to go at your own pace, whichever route you take.
