Join Bredeson Outdoor Adventures for this amazing hiking adventure in Glacier National Park, the undisputed “Crown of the Continent” and one of the world’s most awesome wilderness parks. Its glaciers accent steep cliff edges, where mountain goats prance as the Walendas of the animal kingdom. Glacier is full of dramatic mountain ranges, alpine meadows replete with wildflowers and sculpted glacial valleys reflected in lakes. Acres of lush green parklands plunge down jagged red pinnacles, exposing some of the world’s oldest stones.
Guided Public Trips
Join Bredeson Outdoor Adventures for a four day, three night guided hut to hut snowshoeing tour in the wilderness region of Western Maine. By day we’ll snowshoe from one hut to the next through a lovely and varied countryside. Our adventure takes place in a region where a system of people-powered trails connects backcountry eco-lodges. When the network is complete, it will stretch nearly 200 miles from near the New Hampshire border to the Moosehead Lake region.
Bredeson Outdoor Adventures is offering a day of guided snowshoeing in Washington and Warren, Connecticut. We’ll meet at Hopkins Vineyard and shuttle five minutes to Macricostas Preserve and snowshoe up to the Pinnacle to admire the dramatic view of Lake Waramaug. We'll enjoy lunch and lake views upstairs in the warmth of the vineyard's Hayloft Wine Bar and an optional wine tasting downstairs by the fire. We'll provide hot tea and cocoa in the morning and a packed lunch, information on where to rent snowshoes (we have a few pair available for rent), brief instruction and a day of winter fun. We'll also provide tips and lists for what to wear, bring and do in enjoy to enjoy a safe cold weather outing. You supply the adventurous spirit and the desire to get out and savor an active, crisp winter's day in the company of other nature lovers.
A mountainous island, Sicily is separated from the mainland by the Straits of Messina, perched virtually on the toe of Italy’s boot. Culturally there is an even wider gap between Italy and its semiautonomous island, Sicily, which feels a world apart. The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is a land of beauty, mystery, and world-class monuments. Sicilia straddles a crossroads in the Mediterranean, part of Europe and Africa yet belonging to neither.
Join us for a winter wonderland inn to inn snowshoeing adventure on the trail less traveled in one of Vermont's most scenic areas, the Moosalamoo region of the Green Mountain Forest, otherwise aptly known as Robert Frost Country. Your adventure will start in the town of Brandon, Vermont, a hidden gem full of historic homes, a vibrant arts scene, a nice French restaurant, and even a vineyard. You'll enjoy dinner in Brandon and an overnight at an in-town inn on your first night.
The Tour du Mont Blanc (or TMB), a circuit hike around Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest mountain at almost 16 thousand feet, is one of the world’s classic hikes. In this circuit we spend each night in a different location as we hike around the base of this white, glacier covered massif. (Almost) midway we enjoy an overnight in the lovely Italian town of Courmayeur.We travel on foot from France to Italy to Switzerland and back to France. We also journey back in time, since our base, Chamonix, is the birthplace of mountaineering in the Alps.
The Hiker's Haute Route is one of the world's classic, and challenging, treks. The Route was established almost a hundred years ago, first as a ski route. It was later developed into a high-level hike. The Haute Route links the two famous birth places of mountaineering in the Alps, Chamonix and Zermatt, each with its own fascinating history. The Route connecting these busy Alpine centers contains numerous quaint and quiet villages, which you'll pass through.
Join Bredeson Outdoor Adventures for a magnificent hiking vacation in the European Alps. Two of its most spectacular and beautiful areas are combined on this trip, from the high mountain peaks and traditional huts of the Austrian Tyrol to the fairy tale castles and forested mountains of southwestern Germany’s Bavaria. In Austria we stay in a four star hotel in the beautiful Tyrolean village of Neustift, reached by a narrow road that travels between high mountain peaks. The hotel has spa facilities, the use of which is included in the price.
