Take a hike, Off the Beaten Path


Joyful Steps

I have two doctors, my left leg and my right. —G.M. Trevelyan

A whole lot of sole…

Do you have a special affection for your hiking boots? Are you filled with happiness when you snug up the laces and cinch down the double knot? If you haven't answered "huh?" to this line of questioning, then this message is for you: take a hike. With us, off the beaten path.

There's something so pure and simple about hiking. You put on your boots, throw some food, water, and a jacket into your little pack, and off you go. (Okay, and a camera and binoculars.) It's fundamentally the same whether you're hiking in the American Southwest or mountains of South America—only the scenery and weight of your jacket changes. It's not rocket science, it's just walking, walking, walking; looking, hearing, feeling. Don't you love it?

We do, too, which is why nearly all of our Guided Group Journeys involve a healthy smattering of hiking and walking. And if "smattering" isn't enough, we offer a selection of journeys especially for those who do get truly joyful deep inside when they pull on their boots and zip up their packs…

Walking Through Peru: Trek the Inca stronghold—Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu
The highlight of this 12-day journey is a 4-day lodge-to-lodge trek to Machu Picchu, in the company of experienced Peruvian mountain guides. You'll hike a lesser-traveled section of the ancient Inca Trail and see maybe one or two other parties all day. The first part of the journey is devoted to acclimatizing to the elevation and immersing yourself in Incan and Spanish culture and history. Find out more >

Hiking Utah: Zion, Bryce, and Escalante
This is a hiker's pilgrimage, at a moderate and comfortable pace. Each of these hiking Meccas offers very different topography, from the massive, colorful sandstone cliffs of Zion, to Bryce's odd hoodoos and ancient trees, to the twisting canyons and stair-stepped cliffs of Escalante. At night, put your boots up at fabulous desert inns. Find out more >

Moab Parklands: Arches, Canyonlands, and
Monument Valley

If you feel more like meandering than putting on miles, this is a great choice. A variety of easy hikes take you past stately spires, under graceful arches, and through multi-hued canyons, and you'll also wander Ancestral Puebloan ruins at Canyons of the Ancients. Find out more >
