Our Scotland hiking tour was amazing—here are some photos

Rogan O'Herlihy led our Scotland hiking tour from May 18-26. Rogan is a UK native, so when he guides tours for us in Scotland and England his enthusiasm is almost impossible to contain.

If you like the Dolomites, then you’ll LOVE Austria!

I remember the first time we put together our Heart of Austria tour. I hadn't run the trip yet, so I asked one my colleagues what it was like. They responded without hesitation, "It's just like our Dolomites Trek!" That's a good thing. Being compared favorably to the Dolomites, specifically... read more →

Pics From Our Hike in Southeast Utah

Here are some pics from a private Canyonlands hike that we ran earlier this spring. Delicate Arch is unmistakeable. Ancient cliff dwellings always warrant a stop for the camera.

What the heck is a rorbu?

A rorbu (rorbuer, plural) is a fisherman's cabin, and one of the most recognizable symbols (along with cod fish) of Norway's Lofoten Islands. With its distinctive bright red paint and white trim, the rorbu is to Norway what the mountain chalet is to Switzerland—a shining example of local architecture that... read more →

Norway’s Mountains and Fjords are Spellbinding

Norway seems really magical to me. I love the jagged peaks, the intricate waterways and the tiny villages tucked away in sheltered coves. On a sunny day, the water sparkles like a million diamonds. On a cloudy day, the glowing window of a fisherman's hut invites passersby to step in for tea and a long visit.... read more →
