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.
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’.
Please join us for this guided hiking, boating and cultural adventure on the beautiful Emerald Isle. This small country is immersed in history and its friendly people express their lyrical nature in the lilting warmth of their welcome, their music and their story telling. Ireland alternates between small villages with quaint streets and the requisite pubs, where we’ll listen to lively music, and wild Romantic island, coastal, wooded and mountain landscapes. It has inspired poets, musicians and artists – and it will likely inspire you as well.
Welcome to this guided hiking, canoeing, cultural and culinary exploration of the beautiful and historic Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. Our adventure will start near the old whaling town of Hudson with a tour of the home of the landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church of the Hudson River School. We’ll then visit the great Jack O Lantern Blaze (fall foliage tours), the Storm King Arts Center and West Point. We’ll go on a hike on the Old Croton Reservoir Trail through Rockefeller State Park to Stone Barns Farm and stop by the Headless Horseman Bridge.
On this trip you can unpack your bags and enjoy day hikes on and around the Matterhorn, known at the Sphinx of the Alps, in Zermatt. Zermatt is in the German-speaking region of the Swiss canton of Wallis. The Matterhorn towers over this area next to the Italian border. Although there are numerous 4,000 meter high peaks nearby, none has quite the same irresistible pull on one’s shutter finger as the Matterhorn, as evidenced by the number of photographs of the Matterhorn that inevitably come home from Zermatt hiking vacations.
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.
Join Bredeson Outdoor Adventures on a trip to the Land of the Midnight Sun. This trip takes place in the western fjord country. We’ll be based in Lofthus in the Hardanger region on the eastern shore of Sorfjorden, or South Fjord, facing the Folgefonna Glacier on the sunny side of high mountains. Most of our hikes will take place in the Hardangarvidda National Park with views of the Fjord, waterfalls and dramatically steep cliffs. Our hiking adventure will start and end in the beautiful, old coastal city of Bergen.
