Cycling in Tuscany (EITC)
What better way to experience the beauty of Tuscany than from the seat of a bike? A mixture of on- and off-road biking awaits on a ride through some of the most gorgeous, yet challenging countryside you’ll find anywhere. You'll explore beautiful hill towns, stunning lakes, and have the option to soak in thermal hot springs. After a hard day's ride, what could be better than enjoying the delicious meals your host Stefano will prepare for you each evening, from his locally grown produce. When you are not riding, take the chance to wander the property's vineyard, relax by the pool, or visit the pigs!. There's no better way to work up an appetite.
Highlights: Cycle through Tuscan countryside and stone-walled hill towns, visit quaint Pienza and medieval Montepulciano, learn traditional recipes and eat delicious Tuscan cuisine.
Morocco Active Adventure (DCAA)
With a landscape as diverse as Morocco’s, the transportation must be built to match. The simple pleasures of just getting around are essential to this activity-heavy excursion into the desert kingdom: Mule treks into the Atlas Mountains, bike rides through ruggedly beautiful mountain passes, even a camel caravan to a campsite in the desert. But it’s not all tramping about in the dunes and hills; you’ll also have the chance to explore Essaouira, the fortified city on the Atlantic coast that was once a haven for pirates.
Highlights: Wander through the mountains on the back of a mule, savour coastal views from the back of a camel, enjoy the unique accommodation of a beach camp, cycle through the Atlas Mountains
Hike and bike your way through the beautiful canyons, glaciers and mountain passes that make the Canadian Rockies so enticing. This trip is perfect for the traveller who’s looking to actively explore this pristine wilderness but prefers a comfortable landing at night. You’ll hike the lush forests of the Kananaskis and Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, and experience the magnificent Icefield Parkway, Moraine Lake, and Yoho and Banff national parks. Best of all, the trip begins and ends in Calgary with its convenient international airport. Dream big and get active!
Highlights: Hike in legendary national and provincial park settings, cycle among the towering Rockies, check out alpine wildlife, take in the views in some of the world's most impressive landscapes from comfortable lodgings.
