Hohe Tauern National Park is highly protected in 3 different zones: the most inner zone cannot be touched by anyone, the 2nd layer is open to visit and the outermost zone is where our cycling tours head on our first day on our Austria Bike Tours - Alps to Salzburg. Our bike path leads us along the Hohe Tauern National Park in the valley surrounded by some of the highest mountains of Austria, the Grossvenediger and Grossglockner. Most of the year, the tops are snow covered and sparkling bright against the blue sky. On your bike, while going more downhill then uphill, we bike along green lush meadows and forests, with a chance to buy homemade honey along the trails. You can say "auf wiedersehn" (goodbye) to the cows and sheep along the trail, as well as just look at the wonderful crystal clear waters in deep turquoise colour of the Saalach River.
Not to mention that every couple of meters on the trail the crystal clear mountain spring water is offered to the thirsty bikers and hikers needing some freshly chilled and of course free of charge spring water.
Nature at its finest on the Tauern path, easy biking also makes this trip perfect for family adventure vacations.
Come and join!
Your Friendly European Guide,
As I was putting on my hand lotion today the smell of lavender took me back to my San Juan Islands adventure vacation in August. After our group enjoyed an amazing picnic lunch created by our guides Blair and Toby at South Beach. Which by the way, South Beach is located in American Camp that was developed during the Pig War back in 1859 between the United States and Great Britain over a pig crossing the country boundary line and meeting its demise. The war created the English Camp to the North and the American Camp to the South. The two camps now make up the San Juan Island National Historical Park.
But I digress, after lunch the group jumped on their bikes and headed to the Pelindaba Lavender Farm. You can smell the lavender before you see it as you have to crest a small hill. Once you reach the top you see this stunning farm with rows and rows of different kinds of lavender. I thought lavender came in one variety but I was quickly proved wrong.
At the farm you are allowed to spend as much time as you wish walking up and down the rows of lavender, cut your own bouquet or visit the gift shop where you can purchase items that are made from the lavender.
The San Juan Islands are an archipelago (a chain or cluster of islands) located in the northwest corner of the United States and are part of the state of Washington. In the archipelago, six islands are accessible by passenger ferry operated by the Washington State Ferries system.
On our San Juan Adventure, we visit the 2 largest islands, San Juan and Orcas, over a 5 night 6 day trip which is a hiking vacation, cycling tours, kayaking trip, photograph adventure and a cruise to hopefully see Orca whales, sea lions, eagles and other wildlife, all in one!
Your Friendly Adventure Coordinator,
There is no bad time of year to be in California’s wine country, but perhaps the best time of year to plan your visit to this bountiful region is for the harvest. The harvest in the Napa Valley begins as early as August and can continue through early November, but the prime time is October.
The harvest is truly a magical time to be in wine country. There is a special energy in the air that creates a bit more hustle, puts a spring in everyone’s step while the smell of fresh wine lingers in the air. It is the first taste of the season’s grapes, it is the hope that this year, just might, produce the most perfect bottle of wine and it is the culmination of an entire season of hard work. It truly is a time for celebration! It is the perfect time to really immerse yourself in the wine-making process. During the harvest bushels of grapes are handpicked, sorted and then head off to be pressed before starting the fermenting process. From grape to glass the process is really fascinating!
With the days a bit shorter and the evenings a little cooler October is the perfect time for adventure vacation packages or cycling tours in the Napa Valley. There is something for everyone in California's wine country; whether you are a foodie, a wine connoisseur, a cycling enthusiast or you are just in need of some rest and relaxation this is the perfect vacation spot!
Your Friendly Travel Consultant,
Who doesn't just love a good story of pioneer grit and survival?! South Dakota is home to some of the most colorful history you'll find in the American West. The Black Hills is home to a number of historical sites and filled with natural beauty. I have visited the area many times and enjoy hiking and biking around this western edge of the state. I've found the quiet forests to be one of my favorite places to camp and watch the wildlife.
If you like cycling tours and you've heard of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, dedicated to converting old rail grades into public use, then the Mickelson Trail should be on your 'To Do' list of bike tours. I haven't actually riden the entire length of it, but I did spend a few hours in the rain one afternoon going from Hill City to Rochford, a 20+ mile, scenic stretch that has 3 of the 4 total tunnels found along the trails entire length. Family and friends that have cycled the trail (109 miles end to end) have had nothing but good things to say about it. Other points of interest in the area that are considered must-dos is, of course, Mount Rushmore, the incomplete but slowly progressing Crazy Horse Memorial (Native American tribute), Wind Cave National Park, Custer State Park and without fail, the historic and colorful town of Deadwood. South Dakota's character is forever marked by the early exploration of Lewis and Clark, the wild years of Gold Rush in the 1870s, and the determination and spirit of the early homesteaders like the Engels family (Little House on the Prarie) who like thousands of others chose to settle and develop the land for the good of the country and the expansion of the western territories. South Dakota is as much at the heart of America as any other historical place known for that distinction. Don't miss this gem of the West!

Your friendly travel expert,
The Canadian Rockies... Just look at that view! You'll find the Canadian Rockies in the province of Alberta and I must say Alberta blew my mind on my last trip there. Alberta in my opinion is one of the best, if not the best place for adventure vacation packages. It is just loaded with adventure activities: hiking vacations, cycling tours, white water rafting, rock climbing and all in the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The Canadian Rockies is also home to my all-time favorite hike, going up Sentinel Pass. Hiking Sentinel Pass you'll see Lake Louise, an unreal blue-green lake, Valley of the Ten Peaks, hanging glaciers, wildflowers, wildlife, dark green forest... I get excited just thinking about it!
Another bonus of our Alberta adventure vacations is our amazing guides, this year we were able to get both our Canadian guides to return. Marcy is our veteran and lead Canadian guide, she's an Albertan local and absolute expert on the area. She will be guiding with Anne, an outdoor enthusiast with an incredible passion for sharing her love and knowledge of the outdoors. I was lucky enough to have both of them as my guides last summer and it made my trip having such professional and awesome guides. The photo below is of Anne (left) and Marcy (right) on the Sentinel Pass hike, with Valley of the Ten Peaks in the background.
Your friendly Alberta lover,
P.S. If you're reading this Marcy and Anne, thanks for showing me your beautiful country!
Just over a week from today I will head back to the African continent and my favorite country in the world of Namibia. I pretty much always get at least a bit excited about upcoming travels, but down right ecstatic when it comes to heading to Africa… This trip will be no exception and will highlight both new regions (Skeleton Coast and The Dunes) as well as re-visit some of my past favorites (Damaraland, Palm Fontein and Etosha NP)
There are some real special nuances of this trip that is sure to make it very special. First I will be traveling with Andy my son and it's shaping up to be one of my favorite family adventure vacations. This will be his first gig as a photographer, shooting the incredible landscapes and ever present wildlife. That’s a good start! Next up is the unique nature of the program itself and our traveling companions. We are traveling as guests of The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and our new partner Wilderness Safaris (W.S., The leading safari company in all of southern Africa). WWF and WS are looking to not only educate us, but seek our input and insight on the local village conservancies. Namibia is “ahead of the pack” in how they work with local communities to create truly sustainable tourism opportunities. The majority of the lodges are on community land and staff by locals in a partnership with WS.
I will share a lot more on the conservancies when I return and have an in depth understanding… you can count on that.
Now while this is “work”, no trip to Africa would be complete or even close without the traditional safari tour. We will spend the first few days exploring The Dunes out of Sossusvei, the largest Sand Dunes in the World! (this is a first for me). Next up we will head to the Swakopmund and the Skeleton Coast for a few days of exploring ship wrecks and kayaking with one of the largest sea lion colonies to be found anywhere in the world.
Then its fly north to start our adventure with the good folks from the WWF. We will visit conservancies and camps throughout the north. “Stalking” the elusive desert elephant along the dry river bottoms of Damaraland. (our home for the night Damaraland Camp is the oldest JV Conservancy in Namibia and our host and camp manager is one of the few women in such a high position!)
Then on to tracking black rhino (doesn’t that just sound cool?) out of our camp outside of Palmwag (my favorite camp in all of Africa). Tracking rhino as part of a JV with Wilderness and the “Save the Rhino Trust” and partnership that has clearly resulted in the largest population of the endangered black rhino anywhere on the planet.
Moving on we will be headed to Grootberg Lodge, the first 100% conservancy owned property in the country. A region rich with predators, the conservancy works with the locals to be more tolerant of the cheetahs and lions that also call this home.
Now into the “real” bush and a camping expedition at Otjimumbunde. You really haven’t experienced an African Safari until you sleep in a tent with the only thing separating you and the wilderness is a thin strip of canvas. The night comes alive with all the sounds of Africa and is sure to keep your blood pumping just a bit more than a luxury lodge. The “stories” around the camp fire by the locals will only help to set the stage.
Always a highlight we work our way to Etosha National Park and is 22, 270 sq. KM if saline desert, savanna and woodlands. An amazing 114 different species of mammals are represented in the park… watering holes will set the stage for endless hours of photography literally thousands of animals. It is about as rich of a wildlife experience as you can find. Highlights will be herds of the largest elephants on the continent (measuring 4 meters at the shoulder), one of the few “growing” populations of black rhino, the trio of “Big” cats (lion, leopard and cheetah) more antelope (Kudu, gemsbok, eland and dik dik to name a few) than one can imagine and over 300 species of birds.. (including flamingos), of course then there are the reptiles and just so much more, Etosha should be on any wildlife lovers bucket list.
As we wrap up what might be my favorite adventure vacation packages we will then spend a few days in Windhoek. Here we will introduce the group to our efforts with Wheels of Change. Andy and I will spend some time at one of the BEC’s and just get caught up with the bike crews and work on plans for our next shipment later this summer. Time allowing we will visit with some friends running cycling tours into one of the Windhoek townships.
Then unfortunately it is back up and head home… if all goes well with Andy, we will return with literally thousands of images and video to sort through and relive (and share) our adventure over and over again.
If I wasn’t excited about going before I penned this “blog” I sure am now….. in closing I share an old African Proverb “Return to an old watering hole for more than water, friends and dreams are there to meet you!”
More to come...
One of my favorite memories of Grand Teton National Park has to do with a certain bear called Grizzly 399. Last summer, this momma bear gave birth to three quite adorable, playful cubs. Guiding our Yellowstone-Tetons Adventure all last season gave me the delightful opportunity to watch these “teddy bears” grow up over the course of a summer. But what really got me thinking was, what would have happened if Grand Teton National Park never came to be?
The creation of Grand Teton National Park contains a history of corruption, secrecy, and a few smart moves on behalf of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and President Franklin Roosevelt. When Rockefeller, Jr. visited the the area that was to become the Park in 1926, what he saw angered and upset him: roadside tourist camps, bill boards, hot dog stands, and signs proclaiming Jackson Hole as “The Home of the Hollywood Cowboy.” Rockefeller, Jr. quickly started to buy up all of the surrounding land (he was after all the son of the founder of the Standard Oil Company) and just as quickly donated it the Park Service.
To cover his tracks, Rockefeller, Jr. formed the Snake River Land Company; if ranchers had known that Rockefeller, Jr. was buying their land, they might not have sold or would have jacked up the price (this was during the start of the Depression, when people were looking to sell). In 1929, the Teton Mountain Range itself was set aside as Grand Teton National Park (it did afterall stand little chance of development at the time). Soon after, Rockefeller, Jr. went public with his plans, enraging the ranching community. Due to local oppostion, Congress refused to accept Rockefeller Jr.’s gift of land for over a decade.
By 1943, President Roosevelt had had enough. He gladly accepted Rockefeller Jr.’s gift of land, combined it with 130,000 acres of Forest Service land and declared the area “Jackson Hole National Monument.” After much oppostion from the public, compromises were reached, and the current Grand Teton National Park made its debut in 1950.
Thinking about all of the opposition against the idea of the Park and the risks that Rockefeller, Jr. and Roosevelt (amongst a few others) took, I think about how lucky we are to experience cycling tours or rafting adventures beneath the shadow of the Tetons or the fortune we’ve come across in seeing such a breath-taking area saved from the development of a city (as it could have very well turned out that way!) Most of all, I think about the wildlife, like Grizzly 399 and her 3 cubs, and how without this land and the rules set in place to protect it, life would not exist. Every time I visit Grand Teton National Park, my favorite place on the planet, I spend a minute remembering how special this place is and what it could have become, and I take pride in knowing that future generations will see what I’ve been fortunate enough to see in this protected, powerful place.
See you on your next adventure,
Something we really pride ourselves on here at Austin-Lehman is working as a team. Whether it's in the office or in the field, working as a team is essential to our success. In the spirit of this we decided to make an adventure team for some upcoming adventure races here in Montana. Our team consisted of Kasey Austin, Ryan Morrissey and myself. First we took on the Grizzy Peak adventure race, a 2 mile ski, 6 mile bike and a 2.5 mile run. We were all in the top 10 in our divisions and it was a great race. As you can see below we got a little dirty on the biking section.
Race #2 and to help celebrate Earth Day this past weekend we competed in the Peaks to Prairie triathlon. The race consisted of a 9 mile run which Kasey did, a 50 mile bike ride by Ryan and a 23 mile Kayak by myself.
There's always that point during a race when you are pushing as hard as you can, you don't think there is an end, you're tired, dehydrated and sometimes you think "what am I doing?" But then when you cross the finish line and you see your teammates there with big smiles on your face you can't help to think how worth it was! Also it's not too bad when you see the results and your team gets 3rd place in your division.
Like most great things in life, you need to work for it. A saying I've heard that I really like is "conquerors of the useless", it really doesn't matter how many hiking vacations or cycling tours you do, its what you take from them that matters.
That's why I love working with this amazing team here at Austin-Lehman, in the office, in the field or in a race. I know we all working together to to help share these amazing opportunities to be "conquerors of the useless" and help make memories that will last a life time.
What will you conqueror? Leave a comment at let us know what you get from adventure vacations!
Kasey's Kids Webinar
Kasey Austin is leading a group of young adventurers into an interactive webinar about what kids really want from their family adventure vacation. We first said we would give the first 25 kids a "certified cool" kids pack and an ALA gift. But since the boss is out of town till after the webinar, Kasey and I have agreed to give every kid that attends a "certified cool" kids pack and an ALA gift!!!! Is that cool or what?
Who is Kasey Austin? Kasey Austin is one of our top veteran guides and has been guiding family adventure vacations since she was 6 years old. Kasey's passion for the outdoors is contagious and she is always a hit with the kids. The few trips I've been on with Kasey there is always 1 or 2 kids that say "I want to be a guide like Kasey when I grow up."
This summer she will be guiding and working in the office, sharing her knowledge and passion for the outdoors to help us create even better trips. That is the focus of Kasey's Kids Webinar, to find out what kids really want from an adventure vacation. Then we can take knowledge we get from this webinar and apply it in the field to make our family adventure vacations the best they could be!

Thanks and hope to see you there!
Kasey here, Field Operations Liaison/Guide for Austin-Lehman Adventures. As a guide of our new South Dakota Adventure last year, I am so stoked about this trip that I’m coming at you today with my top 5 reasons to pack your bags and head on over to the Black Hills with ALA! And we’re off…
1. The Mickelson Trail – Ahhh, Isolation…
If you’ve ever wanted to ride alone on a beautiful bicycle trail, then check our South Dakota cycling tours! We spend a few hours here and there throughout this six day adventure biking the 109 mile Mickelson Trail. This crushed limestone and gravel trail travels up and down through towering ponderosa pine forests and traverses private farmland full of haystacks and cows. And the best part – there’s a good chance that you won’t see another biker on this deserted trail!
2. The Towns – A Look Back in Time
South Dakota is full of those towns that you’ve heard of but have never been to. You’ll witness the vivacity of Deadwood, a lively little town in the midst of the Black Hills National Forest, famous for its historic characters like Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Sturgis, a normally sleepy town for most of the year, transforms into a rough and tumble motorcycle rally each August where people travel from around the world to partake in some motorcycle madness!These are just a few of the towns you’ll explore, by foot and by bike, that are vibrant with stories of the past.
3. Custer State Park – Wild Burros!!
Custer State Park, South Dakota’s largest and first state park, is home to a wide array of wildlife from its famous herd of 1500 free-roaming bison to pronghorn antelope and bighorn sheep. You’ll even get to meet the friendly wild burros who roam freely in the southern section of the Park, walking straight up to your van or bike to grunt a hello.(Hint: you may want to be carrying a granola bar or two on you!)
4. Wind Cave – Damp, Dark, & Dank…NOT!
The United States’ first cave to be designated as a national park was Wind Cave, established in 1903 by President Theodore Roosevelt. On our tour with our National Park Service guide, you’ll learn the fascinating (and somewhat funny) story of how this cave came to be our nation’s seventh national park. If you’re looking for a creepy damp cave, stalactites hanging from the ceiling, and bats flapping around, this is not the cave for you. Wind Cave is quite the opposite, and you’re guaranteed to see the intricate boxwork formation that this cave is known for, up close!
5. Mount Rushmore/Crazy Horse Memorial – A Must See
Last, but certainly not least, you need to make the trek up to South Dakota to witness the majesty of what the locals call “The Heads” (more commonly known as Mount Rushmore). Sculpted by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln, this memorial is a must-see for every person, not only as a tribute to our American presidents but as a magnificent work of art on a large scale. Equally as awe-inspiring (but not as well known) is the nearby Crazy Horse Memorial, a commemoration to the famous Native American leader and a response to Mount Rushmore. Discover both on our South Dakota Adventure Vacation Packages!
See you on the trails,
Rural France has its fair share of pretty towns and dramatically breathtaking landscapes. Not only do stunning villages dot the countryside, but the area also features wonderful spots to sample wines and see the remains of Ancient Rome and the Ardèche and Auvergne gorges that define the region. For those interested in historical culture and stunning scenery along with some of the world’s best food and wine, this region puts the European vacation for singles, couples and families at the top of the list.
Burgundy is located in the Sens and Auxerre region, which lies southeast of Paris. The region is popular for adventure vacations because of the spectacular countryside as well as the many historical towns that all have their own stories to tell of wars, sieges and political intrigues down the ages. There are countless local markets to visit, and of course, probably one of the best known wines in the world to enjoy, Burgundy. Well known vintages include Chablis and Beaune with almost all vineyards and cellars a fascinating and delicious visit.
Historically, the town of Dijon became well known for being the center of the mustard trade, and visiting these types of towns will offer a valuable lesson in the geography, culture and history of the area. Enjoy the day walking the streets to make a perfect break in our cycling tours holiday itinerary. Historic buildings from the 11th and 13th centuries are also plenteous in the area including St. Etienne Church, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Stop by our online travel catalog to learn more about the wonders of vacationing in France.
Because many people dream of trips to the emerald green waters of exotic beaches, the country of Holland might not necessarily be at the top of the list for summer vacation destinations. Certainly, the land isn’t known for its beaches and sunshine. But for those couples and families looking to journey on their first European vacation, the flat and lovely Dutch countryside promises to be a dream destination for cycling tours.
Biking through small fascinating villages while on cycling tour is the ultimate form of adventure and relaxation. While journeying throughout the country, the canals and windmills offer sights not well known anywhere else in the world. Amsterdam alone is home to over 100 kilometers of canals that wind their way through town and country.
For those who have adventured to the rolling hills of northern France or southern England, the famously flat landscape offers quite a contrast. Most of the land has been reclaimed by the sea with many small communities, well known for their windmills, doing all that is possible to shelter their towns behind dikes meant to protect from potential flood damage. Because the land is so flat, bicycles are a great way to travel while on holiday. In fact, the Dutch people and bicycles seem to go everywhere together, hand in hand. There are many cycling paths around the canals that also cross into open land and countryside.
The country is more than just landscape and picturesque sites however. The cosmopolitan feel of the culture can most be experienced in their foods, which have integrated with other cultures to provide new treats not often associated with Holland. Indonesian food along with other famous Dutch treats prevails in many locales. The land of tulips, windmills and canals is a perfect destination for adventure vacation packages so contact us today to learn more about our European travel itineraries.
The San Juan Islands in the State of Washington provide exciting opportunities for great adventure trips. With different islands as your playground, there are absolutely no dull moments. The three islands – Orcas Island, San Juan Island and Lopez Island offer very different island experiences.
San Juan Island
When you visit San Juan Island, you will know why so many residents fell in love with this place. You can leisurely walk around the island to visit shops, museums and cafés. With many delightful things that can fill your day, everything is within walking distance. Hike to the Lime Kiln Point State Park and allot some time for whale watching.
Kayaking around Orcas Island will have you looking out for the whales (as the name implies) so be ready to take plenty of photos of these magnificent creatures. Try hiking to the island’s highest peak, Mount Constitution, to take in the 360 degree view of the island. Walk around the town of Eastsound, visit the farmer’s market and enjoy the splendid sounds of live musical performances.
Cycling tours around Lopez Island prepare you for a sumptuous seafood meal and wine tasting at the local winery. You will feel right at home in this place as locals greet visitors with warm, friendly smiles. The birds visiting the island make this place the ideal locale for bird watching with many bald eagles spotted often visiting the area. Kayaking allows travelers to fully discover the unspoiled wonders of nature in this part of the country.
