USA - The Grand Canyon, Bryce & Zion

 

The sheer immensity of the canyons and the vistas of mountains, forests, cliffs and lakes are awe-inspiring. Here, the West has always been Wild - famous outlaws Butch Cassidy and Billy the Kid once rode the range.

Carved by eons of wind, water and geological upheaval, the rocks, spires and pinnacles of Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyons cast a spell of magical light, brilliant color and deep shadows.

We catch the dawn sunrise in Bryce Canyon; hike up to Watchman Trail to admire the expanse of Zion Canyon and lunch at the old Western movie town of Kanab.

Central Bhutan Walking Adventure
Wildland Adventures

Central Bhutan Walking Adventure

Bhutan is the last Mahayana Buddhist Kingdom and the teachings of this school of Buddhism are intrinsic to the daily life of its people.  Here the spinning of prayer wheels, the murmur of mantras and the glow of butter lamps in the houses are still important features of the everyday life. The architecture in Bhutan is unique and charming with several old Dzongs (temples) built without a single nail.  Approach the country actively by biking in villages, walking up to pilgrimage sites in the hills and along trails in search of bird life in the Gangtey Valley. View the stunning Himalayan scenery from high passes decorated with prayer flags.  Explore the less-touristic Haa Valley where you have the option to stay in a family farm-house. This adventure can be modified to include mountain-biking.

England - Coast to Coast
The Wayfarers

England - Coast to Coast

Across hills and dales, lakes and moorlands, this challenging Walk from Cumbria to Yorkshire spans 85 miles of quintessentially English landscape.  Following in the footsteps of Charlotte Brontë and William Wordsworth, we discover the wild, unspoiled Lake District and the mountains of Cumbria, pass tranquil lakes and climb by craggy tarns. In Yorkshire we encounter pastures and dales, winding rivers and rocky valleys.  We explore royal castles and Gothic abbeys, sample local ales and traditional cheeses.  Wildlife is the real star of this walk and at any moment on our trip we might spot a grouse or plover, kingfisher or deer.
