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. ;)

Empire State of Mind in NYC

Double Decker Bus Tour

“In New York, concrete jungle
where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you
feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York,
New York, New York”

I think that Alicia Keys and Jay-Z summed it up pretty well. New York really is like being on another planet; a great melting pot of culture, design, architecture, and attitude.

My brother and I visited NYC a few years ago, and had a great time sightseeing in the city and visiting the Empire State Building. For my first visit to New York, I decided to go with a classic – the New York Classic Double Decker Tour, to be precise – to gain a nice overview of New York City and Manhattan.

It’s easy to get lost in the endless sights and sounds and lights everywhere, and this tour covers the major sightseeing spots and landmarks of the city.

You will enjoy the best sights in Manhattan during the day and at night, with unlimited hop-on, hop-off service at over 40 stops on our double decker bus. There is an Uptown Loop, Downtown Loop, Brooklyn Loop, and The Night Loop, and your pass is good for 48 hours to use as you wish.

Plus, this fun-filled tour includes a ticket for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island AND admission ticket to either the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. What more could you ask for? Well, stopping for pizza along the way of course, if you’re like me. 8)
