I regularly lead trips to Cuba and Vietnam/Cambodia–and, on a one-time basis, to many other places around the world. Recent other trips I have led were to Iceland and Greenland and China, Tibet and Nepal, Croatia and Slovenia.
Upcoming trips include:
Denmark, Norway, Sweden & Finland, with optional extensions to Estonia and St. Petersburg, Russia
July 3-14, 2020
Click below for details:
ca. January 3-10, 2021 (exact dates to be set), with an optional 3-day add-on to Santiago and the Chilean Wine Country
An adventure in the Southern Hemisphere summer, almost to the southernmost place on land in the world apart from Antarctica.
Patagonia is a rugged, sparsely populated region with spectacular mountains (the southernmost Andes), fjords, glaciers, icebergs, waterfalls, Guanacos (~ to Llamas), penguins, and flamingos.
NOTE: I planned an identical trip (without the optional add-on) for January 2019. I was unable to go because I broke my leg at the end of October 2018, but the trip went on without me and the participants raved about it, with some of them who have traveled extensively around the world saying it is the most beautiful place they have ever seen. I definitely want to see Patagonia, so I have scheduled this trip again for the beginning of 2021.
