USA - Alaska
The Wayfarers

USA - Alaska

Remote trails through landscapes shaped by glaciers, earthquakes and storms, almost perpetual daylight and the chance of hearing distant wolves make this Walk a truly amazing experience.

We visit the Independence Mine Historical site, once one of Alaska's most productive gold mines, and cruise the pristine waters of the Kenai Fjords National Park and watch out for orcas! Walking part of the National Historical Iditarod Trail takes us deep into Eagle River's Nature Center, where tiny birds will alight on your hand.

Everyone enjoys the dog-sled ride, and we will get to meet champion Alaskan Husky sled dogs and their puppies.

Panama Family Adventure

Panama Family Adventure

This active Panama family tour is designed for families with kids of all ages at a pace that is easy and flexible for a wide range of interests and abilities. With our local and private native guides by your side, explore the protected rainforests during a Panama Canal tour – cruise by boat, keeping a look out for green iguanas resting in branches and howler moneys swinging from the trees, and then stop for lunch at the 5 star restaurant of the Visitor Center with amazing views of the locks. As your family travels through Panama, you’ll get authentic interactions with the people of Panama –such as when you visit the EmberaDrua village for a native-style lunch of fresh fried fish and plantains or when you drop by an indigenous community in Bocas Del Toro to talk with the talented native artists who sell beautiful handicrafts, such as painted woodcarvings and Ngobe handbags (optional visit). And, along the way, there’s plenty of opportunity for family adventure: challenge dad to zipline through highland cloud forests and to wild waterfalls, feel the rush as you plunge through exciting rapids, learn the secrets behind chocolate making, head off to snorkel and kayak the warm and clear Caribbean waters while visiting remote islets to discover rare birds, such as the brown booby or red-billed tropic birds and amble among the cobblestone streets of Casco Viejo.  Relax in comfortable, locally-owned, family-friendly hotels and eco-lodges as your home base for each day’s activities to enjoy relaxed family time together in the tropics of Panama.
