We are too excited to share with you our new adventures in 2020. Below you'll find quick overviews of each of them! A lot of sweat and tears goes into creating new itineraries that we feel are perfect for an "Adventure Woman" so we hope you love them as much as we do. Please click through each and let us know which you'd like to join in 2020.
Our first trip in Southeast Asia! Vietnam has transformed since the Vietnam War, rapidly modernizing but till retaining much of its traditional charm. And how could we be so close without visiting the magnificent Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia?
Our first trip to the Mideast! Debra Huntington, one of our guide/program managers, went over this spring and fell in love with the culture, landscape, history, and people. On this trip we'll experience them all, including a visit to Petra and the chance to float in the Dead Sea.
On our new trip to England's most prominent peninsula we'll combine hiking sections of the South West Coast Path with learning about its distinct cultural identity, visiting the landscapes of Doc Martin and Poldark, staying in charming villages, and eating Cornish pasties along with other regional specialties.
For several years women have asked us for a trip to Ireland with more hiking. On the hiking Ireland trip we'll be hiking parts of the Wicklow Way, the Kerry Way, and the Burren Way, giving us a taste of Ireland's amazing hiking trails. But for those who want some activity but also time for more traditional sightseeing, the second trip is right up your alley. Can't decide which to do? Then do both!
Maybe you've done the traditional Camino and didn't want to stop. Maybe you're planning on the traditional Camino and know that by the time you get to Santiago, you'll just be warmed up. Or maybe any journey that ends at the ocean calls to you. In 2020 we're adding a trip from Santiago to Compostela. This can be taken in conjunction with our traditional Camino or as a standalone journey.
Our local partner in Portugal has been trying to get us to offer a trip in the Douro Valley for the last 2 years. After learning about it, we understood why! Straddling the border of Portugal and Spain, the river valley offers not only a unique kayaking experience but the chance to hike through villages that have been lived in for centuries. It has also been designated as a Special Protection Area for Birds, one of the last places you can see the nearly extinct Black Stork.
