Details for Bluegrass Excursion

Active Adventure


With a lazy float down the Kentucky River, excellent hiking, a visit to a traditional Kentucky Bourbon distillery, bike rides past bluegrass pastures, and legendary dining, this is an excursion with some serious horsepower. (And if you do drool over the Derby, we’ll make sure you get your ‘celebrity’ fix at some of the most prestigious horse farms in the country)

Our luxury vacations blend the region's best bicycling routes, hiking trails and waterways into one awe-inspiring, well-rounded leisure adventure.

Typical Day


Our introduction to Bluegrass Country begins on a privately-owned and working horse farm, where we’ll be lead amongst the champion thoroughbreds and understand better the makings of a true Kentucky Horse farm. From there, we’ll pedal down Old Frankfurt Pike past horse pastures toward the Labrot & Graham Distillery. Here we will learn about the history of Bourbon making and enjoy a picnic on the grounds. After biking back to our inn, we’ll enjoy dinner in a local historical house. The second day we will enjoy a boat ride through the Kentucky River Palisades while a local narates the history of the area and later mount horses for a sunset dinner ride. The next few days we will spend at the Shaker Village, which represents America’s finest, largest and most completely restored Shaker Village community and living museum.

Age range, type of group


We believe that active travel is for everyone! All of our tours have a multisport itinerary. Pre-trip conditioning is always recommended and training suggestions can be found in the Discover Adventures Trip Planner. This tour consists of rolling terrain; both easy and moderate hiking exists; easy canoeing; some moderate biking can be expected, although optional distances can be considered that reduce portions of the climbing. Typically there is 15-30 miles biking, with longer options available, 3-9 miles hiking, and paddling on gentle rivers. Minimum age is 15 years old;

Sleeping and meals


Eating well has never been a problem on our tours! You can eat as much or as little as you like. Some choose to snack all day, while others choose to work up their appetite for the fine cuisine later in the day. Either way, active travel is conducive to eating, because you can always pedal the extra mile! Our accommodations include a National Historical Registered bed and breakfast in Versialles and the Shaker Village, which is one of only three properties in Kentucky listed in the current Zagat Survey of the top U.S. Hotels, Resorts and Spa’s.

Restrictions


Cell phones and anything having to do with work!

Rates


This adventure is 4 days and 3 nights long, starting on a Sunday, and finishing on a Friday afternoon. You can choose an existing date, or you can create a custom tour dates with us. The trip cost is $1280 per person, and that's all-inclusive. You certainly can have your own room if you're traveling single, but the rates are based on double occupancy, and a single supplement will apply.

Other Information
