Adventure. It's in our DNA. We introduced adventure travel to North America in 1972 and never looked back. Now you can choose from over 4,000 small group trips, or have one of our experienced adventure travel specialists build one just for you. No one has the experience, depth of knowledge and range of itineraries of Adventure Center!
There are always lots of questions when you're planning a trip. Here are answers to the questions that we get the most. If you don't find the answer you're looking for, please call or email and we will be happy to answer them for you.
What our travelers have to say
What we hear most about our style of travel is "Why haven't I done this before?"
Responsible travel is rooted in respect, socially & ecologically . Since 1972 we've helped shape the meaning of traveling responsibly by introducing small groups of travellers to local people, wildlife and culture while sustaining the delicate balance that enables these communities and ecosystems to thrive.
People who makeit happen!
Guess what we do on vacation? That's right, we get out and travel. We're all passionate about new destinations and new experiences. We know adventure because we live it, and that helps us to better prepare you for yours. Let us know how we can put our knowledge and our experience to use for you.
Are you an adventurer, an explorer, or just plain curious? Do you love discovering new cultures and places? If so, we should talk. We're always looking for people who are committed to making adventure come alive for others.
It’s that time of year again, folks – the end of the year. Cliché for sure, but 2011 sure seemed to fly by faster than 2010. Doubtless it will be 2013 in no time. But before 2012 arrives, why not recall fondly some of the Adventure Center Blog 2011 highlights? For those of you keeping track, we ramped up the regularity of posts, trying to keep the content engaging, fun and informative. How did we do?
This year, I was surprised by the number of Christmas cards sent to my wife and me. It’s always great to receive posted correspondences that aren’t catalogs or bills. Do you still send postcards?
If you do, that means you go places. Why do you travel? For fun, soul searching, for a change of pace? Should it even matter so long as you go?
For any traveler, customs is an inevitability.
If you followed the previous link, you know that even astronauts have to fill out customs forms when they return from missions. Many of you wouldn’t let that stop you from being a space tourist.
Legendary travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor died this year, as did Christopher Hitchens, who wrote about Fermor for Slate.
Travel hackers run up miles and points just for the sake of it. Others fly to distant places but then limit their interaction with the place because they are cheap. Are they both “budget travelers”?
Gifts that remind you of bad souvenirs aren’t as bad because you didn’t buy the gift. What is the value of souvenirs?
Segway: Yay or Nay – What else do I have to say?
Many of you are cycling enthusiasts, so it made sense that you were interested in legislation prohibiting cyclists from roads on federal land, like national parks.
I just rode Amtrak from Boston to New York, much more comfortable than the bus and no traffic! Huzzah for railroads!
