The South Island of New Zealand contains a vast array of hiking possibilities from casual day hikes, hut to hut treks, and even a long distance hike from one end of the country to the other. Our focus will be on various day hikes scattered throughout the South Island with an emphasis on hiking in the Southern Alps. Wonderful places like the Banks Peninsula, Mt. Cook National Park, Mt. Aspiring National Park, and Queenstown. Christchurch will be the start and finish of our explorations. After arrival in Christchurch, we will all spend a couple of days exploring the city and the Banks Peninsula. After that, we head for Queenstown and all the hiking areas to the south in the Southern Alps. This is basically a low cost lodging trip where we will attempt affordable places to stay such as cabins, hostels, B&B's, and motels. We can also expect to camp if we are not able to book lodging in certain areas. Our food will come from restaurants and self catering kitchens at the various places we stay. We will be renting a 10 passenger van to transport us to our various destinations and trail heads.

Join us for a cycling vacation in two spectacular mountain regions of Austria. This will be a hotel based trip where we will pick a hotel in each region and venture out each day with a choice of a multitude of rides. If we share rooms, the cost of this trip will be very reasonable. Both of these regions are recreation centers featuring road riding, mountain biking, skiing, hiking, climbing, hang gliding, river rafting ..... you name it. Even though our primary purpose is to cycle, there will be opportunities to try some of the other sports. We will probably go to the Zillertal Valley for our first week of riding. After that, we'll hop aboard a local train for a two to three hour ride to Zell am See. Check out the following websites to get more information for each area.

Death Valley & High Desert Wander - Mar. 2019 (10 Days) - From Bishop, CA

We have revamped the Death Valley tour that we have put on for several years. This new and improved version features diverse terrain with elevations between -238' and 7,000'. The start is in Bishop and heads south through the Owens Valley to Lone Pine. From there we head into Death Valley with stops in Darwin, Panamint Springs, Stovepipe Wells, and Furnace Creek. Next, we head south through Badwater and out of the national park to the town of Shoshone for a day off to enjoy the hot springs, local hikes, and a nearby date farm. We return to Furnace Creek for one night, followed by a potentially hard day to a campsite near Scotty's Castle, hopefully with time to visit the castle itself. After that, we find ourselves riding to a couple of remote towns in the high Nevada desert. The ghost town of Gold Point and the hay growing town of Dyer are so small and so remote that even some of the people that live here in the E. Sierra don't know where they are. The last day of the tour is a dooozy ...... you have two passes to climb plus the ascent to our starting point in Bishop. This will be a vehicle supported camping trip.
