Here's what people are saying about our hiking adventures:
“Big Bend National Park is a must see. The program is excellent – nice day hikes on trails to Mule Ears, Santa Helena Canyon, Balanced Rock, The Window, the Hot Springs, and Lost Mine – excellent, personable instructors who communicate insightful knowledge of the desert. It is well-organized and the twenty or so cordial participants made for a fun adventure!”
“This program was an absolute marvel filled with experiences that have created memories that will last forever. The sights, the wines, the food, & the knowledge gained were all outstanding.”
Hike your way through Big Bend National Park, one of the most remote, wildly beautiful and peaceful places in America. Geological history spanning millions of years and a discussion of the “brief” era of the dinosaurs will add to the appreciation and mystique of what the early Spanish explorers called “El Despoblado” — the empty land.
