Go Take A Hiking Tour!

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

Enjoy a variety of hiking trips worldwide!

Everyone knows that exercise is excellent for you. Research shows that exercise helps to fend off heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, burns calories, alleviates depression, keeps your mind sharp, and can even slow the aging process. But really — how enticing is the treadmill?? Do you really want to see some of the unsightly spandex in the gym? How about the stuffy space? How about paying exorbitant amounts for such self-punishment? I’ll take a gamble at a “no” there. Why “tune out” with more escapist TV and music while you tone your tendons? Personally, I would rather “tune in” to nature, the smell of flowers and trees, the view of mountains and forests and waterfalls, and getting back in touch with your thoughts and surroundings. And if you’re the super-adrenaline-daring type, hiking up mountains is a major calorie annihilator! There are better ways to get and stay in shape, get some FRESH air, and have a great time than becoming the proverbial hamster in a wheel, travel friends. I’ll even give you permission to blare Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” in your eardrums, if you need some extra motivation to get moving. Give yourself a REAL escape – lace up your hiking boots and go take a Hiking Tour!

Oahu Valley of the Rainbows

Whether you’re blazing through your backyard or conquering the concrete jungles of New York City or traversing the rainforests of Hawaii, you can venture a hike just about anywhere. For easy trails and spectacular views, I would recommend our Oahu Valley of the Rainbows Rainforest Tour from Honolulu. Travel to the enchanting, lush rainforest located deep within the beautiful Valley of the Rainbows. Here, nestled below towering jungle trees and surrounded by seven waterfalls, one of the world’s premier botanical gardens awaits you. This tour involves 2 miles of easy walking. Includes free Honolulu hotel pickup and return. These tours are limited to just 14 participants to provide a personal touring experience, so order early to ensure your space!

Banff Evening Icewalk & Campfire Excursion

If you’d like to add a dash of Fire & Ice to your trek with a nocturnal twist, check out our Evening Icewalk & Campfire Excursion from Banff. Join a nighttime guided walk and campfire tour at Lake Minnewanka, on the outskirts of Banff. Walk the shoreline with icecleats and headlamps. Listen to the crackling of the frozen lake, and stargaze as we make our way to the campfire site. Then, warm up with hot chocolate and roast marshmallows around the fire, as your guide entertains everyone with stories of the wild! Your tour includes ice cleats, hiking poles, and a headlamp, hot chocolate and marshmallows to roast, as well as hotel pick up and drop off from Banff. Return Distance is 2.0 kilometers. Elevation Gain is minimal.

The best best part? You can get all of this without breaking your bank. We have hiking trips and tours available worldwide. Whether you’ll be in Anchorage, Oahu, Gatlinburg, New Zealand, or one of the many other areas that we serve, you’ll be glad you got out and got your hike on. Book online with us at www.hikingtours.net and save or call us toll free for reservations, group tours, and private charters. And, next time someone tells you to “Go Take a Hike!” tell them you’re gonna, and not to be too jealous of your prolonged, powerful life force for doing so. Maybe you’ll even let them join you when they’re nicer. ;)

The lodge has 10 sleeping rooms, a large country kitchen, and a cozy living room area where you can curl up by the woodstove and lose yourself in a good book. And after a day spent hiking or skiing in the fresh mountain air, you’ll appreciate an added comfort – hot showers! Mealtime is always an event – you’ll delight in hearty, home-cooked meals and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods – no one ever leaves Sundance hungry!

A 16 km ski away from the mountain town of Banff, and just 10 km from the Sunshine turn off. The wide, well-sheltered trail leads you along the tree-lined valley of the Sundance Range, and is considered easy to moderate for cross country ski enthusiasts. Your overnight stay will include a 10 mile trek south of Banff, to the Lodge.

The "Diamond in the Wilderness," Lake Louise, Banff

The “Diamond in the Wilderness,” Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta

Have you ever been to Banff, Alberta? It kind of reminds me of the magical land of Narnia from C. S. Lewis’ epic fantasy tale, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Even if you don’t spot Aslan, you may very well see a rare Grizzly Bear. Nestled high in the Canadian Rockies, Banff is the kind of place that you will never forget. Explore the great outdoors and natural wonders of Banff National Park, discover the charming Town of Banff, and you simply can’t miss out on the picturesque beauty of Lake Louise.

Hot Springs at Sulphur Mountain

Banff offers visitors a spectrum of unspoiled wilderness, both modern and rustic choices of amenities, and endless opportunities for adventures you will cherish for a lifetime.

Icewalks , Snowshoing, Dog Sledding, Sleigh Rides, Snowmobiling, Helicopter Sightseeing, Wildlife Watching,  or simply relaxing in the mineral-rich, therapeutic hot springs are just a few options to choose from in Banff.

Johnston Canyon Icewalk

Johnston Canyon Icewalk

One of my top picks is the Johnston Canyon Icewalk Bus Tour from Banff. Gigantic pillars of ice are the highlight of this cool tour. Ice climbers can often be seen scaling the frozen columns. Venture past the lower falls, and you will discover the breathtaking upper icefalls. The tour includes hotel pick-ups & drop-offs from Banff, your friendly, certified tour guide, ice cleats & hiking poles, plus hot chocolate & maple cookies! YES. ;)

Aboriginal Dog Sledding Adventure

I would also recommend our Aboriginal Dog Sledding Adventure near Canmore. A short 20 minutes from Banff, this dog sledding excursion is an exciting and hands-on way to explore and enjoy the amazing scenery of the Rocky Mountains! Gain a deeper understanding of the Aboriginal people, and immerse yourself in the clean mountain air as you venture out into the sparkling, white snow on a dog sledding adventure. You will also have the opportunity to put the dogs into their harnesses and attach them to the sled. Then begin your exhilarating ride!
