BILLINGS, MT. – As the bookings come in and climb past pre-pandemic pace, Austin Adventures is meeting the demand by adding three new trips to its 2022 offering. The new trips will feature top destinations like Jackson Hole and British Columbia and expand their highly popular family line to the Galapagos Islands.
"The demand is soaring,” says Dan Austin, founder of Austin Adventures. “Many of our trips are already filling up or sold out. We felt it was the perfect time to expand our offering by releasing three highly requested trips that guests can take this year.”
Guests can expect the same level of high-touch service on these new trips, including “wow” moments, a 6:1 guest-to-guide ratio, and special experiences you can only get with a tour operator well versed in taking travelers off the beaten path. These new all-inclusive small group adventures include:
Jackson Hole Adventure – this 5-day single-stay adventure settles guests in a luxury lodge in Jackson Hole with days packed full of activity. Guests will experience the natural beauty of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, go horseback riding with a local wrangler, whitewater raft the Snake River Canyon and kayak the calm waters of Jackson Lake. Austin Adventures also offers a family-friendly version of this trip.
British Columbia Hut to Hut Hiking Adventure – this 6-day backcountry hiking trip invites guests to step off the grid and explore some of the lesser-trekked trails of British Columbia’s Esplanade Range. Accessible only by helicopter, this is a true bucket-list adventure for those looking to stretch their legs and hike with a seasoned guide leading the way by day and a personal chef cooking dinner each night.
Galapagos Family Vacation – this 7-day land-based vacation allows families to experience the local footprint of Galapagos, led by regional experts. Active families will enjoy kayaking the sheltered bay of Puerto Villamil, hiking to the rim of Sierra Negra – an active volcano, biking thru lush highland cloud forests, snorkeling near Kicker Rock and discovering the countless natural wonders of these iconic islands.
In addition to pent-up demand for active travel, Austin Adventures’ growth can also be attributed to its alliance with Active Adventures of New Zealand. Active Adventures’ unique hiking, biking, and kayaking experiences in New Zealand, South America, Europe, the Himalayas, and Africa are now available via the Austin Adventures’ website.
“Many Americans are ready to put the pandemic behind them,” says Austin. “And with that sentiment comes the desire to get out and explore and finally book that trip they’ve been aching to take.”
