Adventure Trips

Getaway Trips involve trips to exotic locales and exclusive resorts, as well as Viking river cruises and other special destinations..  For our beach bums or just sun-loving folks, we bring you bus or carpooling trips to the local beaches, whether for a long weekend or an entire week. For the more adventurous ones, we follow the sun and fly you to the warmer climates during our fall, winter or late spring months.  In the last several years, we have run "Bike and Barge" trips to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.  In April 2016 we offered a "Sun & Fun Getaway" to the All-Inclusive Club Med Resort at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, followed by a February 2017 trip to the Club Med Columbus Isle resort.  Our planned trip to the Club Med Turks & Caicos resort had to be cancelled because of Hurricane Maria, but has now been rescheduled for April 2018.  See below.

River/Water Events: Encompass various activities and sports on local lakes, streams, rivers and estuaries, including rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and water-skiing. 

Winter Events:  Many of our ski, snowboard and X-country events also offer off-slope adventure activities.  A good example is our February, 2022 trip to the Alyeska ski resort in Alaska.
