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!

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.

Maybe you’ll even let them join you when they’re nicer. ;)

Answer the Call of the Yukon Territories

Air Flight-Generic

Situated on the Alaska Panhandle is the small city of Skagway, Alaska.  Featured as one of the settings in Jack London’s book The Call of the Wild, Skagway has relatively much to offer in the way of history and charm despite its size.  There are a number of options to choose from when visiting this area and its surroundings, including tours by bus, Jeep, and ATV as well as horseback riding trips and even a sled dog tour!

On the Skagway Summit and City Tour, the downtown area and Gold Rush Cemetery are highlighted as part of the fully narrated journey.  Driving up the Klondike Highway, you will be surrounded by gorgeous cascading waterfalls and treated to amazing views overlooking the railroad route and other historical portions of the area.  A history of the Gold Rush and visit to the grave of Jefferson Randolph “Soapy” Smith – famed con artist and gangster during the late 1880s – round out the tour nicely.

Yukon Tours, which specializes in destination travel products in the Yukon, also offers a Yukon & Sled Dog Tour, which allows guests to be guided into the wilderness along the 1898 Gold Rush Trail in a dog sled.  This tour departs from Skagway and gives a peek into the lives of Gold Rush stampeders.  Along the way, you’ll have a chance to see several trails including the White Pass Trail of ’98 and the Fantail Trail, while also taking a look at Summit and Fraser Lakes and Carcross Desert.  These are only a few of the places featured on this tour, which also includes an educational wildlife exhibit and barbecue chicken lunch.

Finally, the Yukon Jeep Stampede – also departing from Skagway – offers a private look at the Summit and the Yukon.  You are in control as you cruise along the Klondike Highway and listen to stories told by your knowledgeable tour guide.  Similar to the aforementioned tours, you will get a thorough schooling in the life and times of the Gold Rush, only this time you are literally in the driver’s seat.

Poetic Icelandic Views

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Though the island country of Iceland is small, there is plenty to do during a vacation.  With stunning sights of sand fields, mountains and glaciers, the country is so beautiful it may render you speechless.  Because the land is so scenic and exquisite the tours, activities and attractions are based around the outdoor wilderness.  So if spending time outdoors is your thing, then visiting Iceland is an excellent decision.

Tours in Iceland can provide you and your group with activities and attraction tickets while visiting Iceland that can help make your vacation better than you could ever have imagined.

To see some of the major spots in Iceland, try out the City Sightseeing and Gullfoss & Geysir Express Tour.  The tour begins in Reykjavik where the group will visit the stunning white and red Presidential Residence at Bessastaðir.  Also, the city of Hafnarfjörður will be explored during your tour.  This town is the site of an annual festival where Viking culture is brought back to life with reconstructions of Viking garb, handcraft and sword-fighting. 

An additional part of this tour is the ride up to the countryside to the National Park at Þingvellir.  The park was founded to protect the remains of the parliament site and later expanded in order to preserve natural phenomena in the surrounding area.

The journey continues to the geothermal area of Geysir and the Gullfoss Waterfall.  The beautiful icy blue tint in the water is a wonderful contrast against the natural greens, oranges and browns of the land surrounding it.  This tour is a great way to get a feel of both a city and the nature of Iceland.

For something equally as thrilling but at night, try out the Northern Lights Mystery Tour.  In the darkness between the fall and spring, you may be lucky enough to sight one of nature’s most spectacular phenomena:  the Northern Lights.  Otherwise known as Aurora Borealis, the shapes of these bright hues are nothing short of poetic.  The swirling green, red, and violet lights are enchanting and make you wonder how something so incredibly beautiful could possibly exist.

Other great activities in Iceland that all visitors should try are the scuba or snorkeling tours as well as a visit to Mt. Hekla in a Jeep. 

The country is full of fun adventures for you and your group to enjoy.  Make your visit to Iceland simply magnificent by reserving your tours, activities and attraction tickets through Tours in Iceland at www.toursiniceland.com. 

Sail the Open Sea

Monday, September 29th, 2008

If your vacation brings you to a location where a gentle breeze is common along beautiful smooth waters, then taking a ride aboard a sailboat would be an excellent choice.  No matter where you decide to spend your holiday, taking time out to enjoy yourself on the open water will be one of the best decisions you could make.

From one side of the country to the other, Sailboat Tours offers luxurious rides where you can relax, enjoy the scenery, and add a bit of adventure to your vacation.

One of the most popular tours is the Day Sail on San Francisco Bay.  The boat will take you right by Alcatraz Island where the infamous federal prison is located.  You will receive amazing views as you pass under the Golden Gate Bridge.  Depending on your preference, you can sail in the afternoon and check out all the sights, or drift through the water at sunset and witness the glowing sun set over the sparkling water.

The NaPali Snorkel Picnic Sail of Kauai is another fabulous sailing excursion.  The boat explores the rugged NaPali coast where you will see waterfalls and lava tubes.  The guide is extremely knowledgeable on the area and can let you in on the secret ancient legends of the civilizations that once inhabited NaPali.  Breakfast and lunch picnics are included as well as snorkel instruction and gear.  So not only do you get to take in the sights of the coastline but a chance to explore the crystal clear waters as well.

For a bit of romance during your stay in Key West, the Champagne Sunset Cruise is perfect.  The boat takes you along the smooth ocean so you can experience true bliss as you watch the large orange sun appear to melt into the heavenly waters.  Your seat in front of the breathtaking sunset is to die for. 

In Chicago, you can travel in the evening aboard a large and lavish sailboat in hopes of sighting the largest mammals on our planet.  This whale watching cruise is one-of-a-kind and is a wonderful way to spend time with your family on the open water.  The cruise along Lake Michigan is great place to spot some whales and create memories to last a lifetime.

See if you can include a fun sailboat ride in your vacation by visiting Sailboat Tours’ website at www.sailboattours.net today!
