Austin-Lehman Adventures says a new definition of adventure travel should include such seemingly passive events as wine tasting.
The reason: adventures should include “experiences that enrich and delight body, mind and soul,” which they say wine tasting accomplishes.
The company this fall is offering active, luxury, multi-sport adventures where private vineyard and winery tours and product sampling compliment hiking, biking and paddling. Overnight stays are at locally run properties.
“We challenge guests with a variety of healthy, active pursuits (guests decide their own comfort level of challenge and exertion). Then we stimulate the mind and appreciation of a destination through interaction with local experts, artists, historians, naturalists, chefs and vintners,” said Dan Austin, director.
Austin-Lehman Adventures specializes in upscale multi-sport adventures to iconic destinations throughout the Americas.
