July 11, 2017

BILLINGS, MT – July 10, 2017 – Austin Adventures, the world’s leading multisport adventure company for families and adults, is on the cusp of completing another record-breaking year. And it’s bullish on 2018, announcing a lineup of 10 new domestic and international itineraries that represents one of the most impressive expansions in the company’s nearly four-decade history. The new, creative itineraries continue the company’s trademarks of exceptional value, VIP experiences and unexpected “wows.”

Close-to-home programs continue to embrace US and Canadian national parks. Exhilarating outdoor adventures that blend with cultural interactions are intrinsic to new itineraries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. See: https://austinadventures.com/

“We’ve been hard at work putting together a roster of new trips and destinations second to none,” says Dan Austin, founder and visionary director of Austin Adventures (https://austinadventures.com/). “Here’s an advanced preview for those of us who can’t wait for our 2018 catalog release in mid-July.”

North America: US & Canada

Montana/Wyoming | Rockies Adventure – Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier national parks star in this Wild West adventure in the Northern Rockies where guests explore the distinct personalities of these mountains, from the towering Teton Range to the volcanic plateau luring wildlife to roam in Yellowstone to the glacially carved valleys of Glacier’s Going-to-the-Sun Road. This is an adult-only, 6-day/5-night program at $3,998 per person, double occupancy. 2018 departure dates: July 15 & 25. https://www.austinadventures.com/destinations/north-america//

Montana/Wyoming | Western Adventure – Austin Adventures is headquartered in Billings, MT, making this new itinerary a no-brainer for the planning team who have highlighted favorite places where locals love to play. For example, the relatively undiscovered Beartooth Pass allows passage through the quiet side of Yellowstone via Cooke City. Lamar Valley, populated by bears, wolf, bison and pronghorn, plus the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River whet excitement enroute to Cody’s Monster Lake Ranch, a paradise for families looking for a Wild West experience. This is a 6-day/5-night family program at $2,498 per adult, double; from $1,998 per child. 2018 departure dates: July 1 & August 5. https://austinadventures.com/packages/montana-wyoming-western-adventure/

Utah | Mighty Five National Parks – Utah’s “Mighty Five” National Parks take top billing with an array of surreal scenery and terrain-specific activities.  This red rock heaven focuses on Canyonlands, Arches, Bryce, Zion and Capitol Reef, all within a relatively small geographical area.  This is an adult-only, 6-day/5-night program at $3,498 per person, double occupancy. 2018 departure dates: June 10 & September 9. https://austinadventures.com/packages/utah-mighty-five-national-parks/

Alberta | Banff Winter – The snow-draped peaks of Banff National Park create a mid-winter beauty that’s a backdrop for powdery adventures like cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding. Guests arriving “home” each night anticipate mugs of hot chocolate or a glass of wine to sip beside a fireplace before a sumptuous dinner. This is a 6-day/5-night program at $3,298 per adult, double with special child pricing available. 2017-2018 departure dates: December 17(F), 31(F) & January 7 (adult only). https://austinadventures.com/packages/alberta-banff-winter-family/ or https://austinadventures.com/packages/alberta-banff-winter/

Africa

Tanzania | Bush Rover Explorer – Some say that “safari” is synonymous with Tanzania, where wildebeest graze across the grasslands, hippos jostle for space in muddy waterways, elephants mosey along seasonal migration routes and chimpanzees swing through the treetops. Guests are accommodated in a Bush Rover Suite, a full working Land Rover that converts into a stunning home by night. This home on wheels brings visitors to the wildlife, all in splendid isolation and comfort. This is a 7-day/6-night program at $4,498 per person, double. Departs weekly. Call for availability. https://austinadventures.com/packages/tanzania-bush-rover-explorer/

Kenya | Samburu to Masai Mara – Vast savannahs peppered with herds of wildlife mix with traditional peoples who bring soul and color to the earth. Kenya is the home of Africa wildlife conservation. The safari (the word means journey in Swahili) was born here, where visitors aspire to spot the much-heralded Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant). This is a 7-day/6-night program at $2,698 per person, double. Departs weekly. Call for availability. https://austinadventures.com/packages/kenya-samburu-masai-mara/

Asia

India | Delhi to Pench – A land of incredible diversity – from artistic culture and ancient traditions to culinary creations and glorious landscapes – India kindles curiosity, shakes up the senses and ignites travel passions. Guests explore the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur) and search for sloth bear, leopard and tiger in Pench and two national parks. This is a 12-day/11-night program at $4,598 per person, double. Departs weekly. Call for availability. https://www.austinadventures.com/destinations/asia/india//

Laos/Cambodia | Luang Prabang to Angkor Wat – Two bite-size destinations, Laos and Cambodia, begin to reveal themselves on small side streets, along back alleys, in temples at Luang Prabang and Cambodia’s famed Angkor Wat. In the throes of cultural intoxication, guests relax on a private island before experiencing Cambodian cuisine and nightlife in Phnom Penh. This is a 12-day/11-night adult-only program at $4,998 per person, double. 2018 departure dates: February 12 & November 3. https://www.austinadventures.com/destinations/asia//

Europe

Holland / Germany | Amsterdam to Aachen – This multisport adventure takes guests by bicycle and foot from Amsterdam’s colorful tulip markets to Aachen’s famous cathedral. They taste a caramel-filled stroopwafel in a quaint café, cycle the fabulously flat and scenic landscapes of the Dutch countryside, and explore Germany’s westernmost city of Aachen with a knowledgeable guide. This is a 7-day/6-night program at $2,998 per adult, double with special child pricing available. 2018 departure dates: May 13(A), June 10(F), July 1(F), July 22(F), August 26(A), September 2(A) (A-adult, F-family). https://austinadventures.com/packages/holland-germany-amsterdam-aachen-family/

South America

Colombia | Bogotá to Cartagena – Soaring Andean peaks, pristine Caribbean coastline, mysterious Amazon jungle, yet-to-be-heralded archaeological ruins and cobblestoned villages combine in this emerging tourist destination. Colombia appeals to those looking beyond Machu Picchu, Cuba and the Galapagos. This is a 9-day/8-night program at $2,198 per person, double. Departs weekly. Call for availability. https://austinadventures.com/packages/columbia-bogota-cartegena/
