The Columbia River Gorge was the corridor through which Lewis and Clark traveled to reach the Pacific, and the avenue by which they began their long journey home. The information they gathered provided the inspiration for the tide of western expansion and settlement that followed. By the mid-19th century, almost 12,000 pioneers had migrated to the Oregon Territory. The territory originally encompassed an area that included the current states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, as well as parts of Wyoming and Montana.
The sensational Croatian coast has long been known for its sun and beaches. Yet there is also another Croatia, less discovered and just as breathtaking. With over 1,000 islands to explore, the “Other Croatia” is one of Europe’s most outstanding adventure stages. This self-guided hiking tour starts with an overnight in beautiful Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, and then focuses on two islands, Hvar and Brač. After arriving in Dubrovnik, you'll explore the city at your own pace, including a hike to the top of Srd Mountain for a spectacular view of the Old Town.
This self-guided bicycle tour starts in Split, the city founded by Roman Emperor Diocletian dating back to 300 A.D. This lovely antiquity is coupled with modern conveniences, as there is an international airport just 25 kilometers (less than 16 miles) from Split’s town center. You’ll then visit Brač Island, Croatia’s third largest and the highest island in the Adriatic Sea.
Join Bredeson Outdoor Adventures on our Seas and Sierras multi-sport tour to the beautiful and interesting Baja Sur California region of Mexico. While many people have preconceived notions of Baja Sur (think hippie or yuppie enclaves), Baja Sur is a relatively untapped area full of authentic adventure and culture experiences on both land and sea. Jacques Yves Cousteau once called the Sea of Cortez the “Aquarium of the World.” With a marine abundance of whales, sea lions, turtles, whale sharks and thousands of endemic species….Jacques was right.
Join us for this beautiful hiking and cultural adventure in Scotland, a land rich in lore, scenery and culture. Scotland is known for its mountains, including Ben Nevis, the highest in Great Britain, its lakes (“lochs”), its lovely valleys (“glens”) and forests. Although it is part of the United Kingdom, Scotland was independent for centuries with its own monarch, and has a fascinating, sometimes turbulent, history of its own.
Ireland's fabled County Kerry consists of a series of spectacular mountainous peninsulae divided by deep-sea inlets. MacGillycuddy’s Reeks form the centerpiece of the Ring of Kerry, a 179-kilometre circuit from Killarney, via Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Waterville, Kenmare and back to Killarney across Moll’s Gap and past Ladies View – one of Ireland’s most famous viewpoints. Weaving between these points are a network of ancient paths that are nearly as old as the land itself, many of which form part of a long-distance track known as the ‘Kerry Way’.
