Our "Active Discovery" Trips are ideal for avid hikers and nature enthusiasts alike. They are trips that provide each guest with the flexibility to excercise their mind and/or their body. Led by two guides, each day you can choose between guided walking/hiking or a discovery tour focusing on nature, culture, or wildlife. Perfect for people who want to travel together, but have different interests and for those who enjoy a variety of different experiences. Hiking and walking options are considered moderate in that distances are usually between 6 and 12 miles a day with elevation gains of 1,500 to 2,500 ft. Our hiking choices are always at the top of our "reward for effort" scale. - the best the area has to offer. Our discovery tour options are always a unique local cultural or natural experience and are led by one of our professional interpretive guides. Guests choosing the walking options should be in good physical health while the only prerequisite for the discovery day options is enthusiasm!
