New for 2014! Nestled between Croatia's historic capital city of Zagreb and the spectacular Dalmatian coast is a verdant pastoral region filled with mountains, forests, fertile valleys, turquoise waters, and quiet backcountry roads. We explore four of Croatia's National Parks and their surroundings by bike, venture to the walled port city of Zadar, and hop a ferry to bicycle Ugljan and Pasman Islands with views to the deep blue Adriatic Sea.
New for 2014! Thick forests, open meadows, clear lakes, and medieval villages—all crisscrossed by trails—create a patchwork countryside just begging for exploration on foot. Hike with us from Vienna to Prague and discover this historic area known for its Gothic castles, Renaissance and Baroque mansions, lush gardens, vineyards, and the celebrated UNESCO World Heritage towns of Telc and Cesky Krumlov.
New for 2014! The people of Iceland make the most of all seasons, and winter is no exception. Come and explore stunning countryside while it's embraced by winter's icy—and beautiful—grip. Hike the rugged coast, snowshoe across ice-covered lava fields, and walk on crystal-blue glaciers. Along the way we'll be mesmerized by frozen waterfalls, burbling hot springs, and ethereal Northern Lights before retiring to our cozy hotel each night.
New for 2014! Set off on a week of unforgettable hiking along Portugal's wild Atlantic coast. This trip takes us from culturally-rich Lisbon to sun-drenched Algarve.

Their inviting plazas and cafes gives us an authentic taste of southern European life as we relax each night.
New for 2014! The Andes is home to some of the most magnificent alpine hiking on Earth, and our Cordillera Blanca Trek offers only the best.

We continue south to the pristine beaches and islands of Paracas National Reserve and take a scenic flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines—giant drawings in the desert left by a civilization lost in time.
