July 1, 2018: Northern Ireland’s Coastline by Tall Ship and Bike

Explore the dramatic Atlantic Coast of Ireland and Northern Ireland by bike and tall ship! This small and rugged isle, engulfed by the surges of the Atlantic, is a place of diverse natural beauty. We’ll visit areas that few tourists encounter, and where remoteness has preserved a rich, centuries-old culture.

Join me aboard the three-masted, 150-foot tall ship Thalassa, our floating, sailing home for the week. You can even help the crew help lift nearly 9,000 square feet of sail to set the ship in motion.

Note: Very limited space. Book soon!

July 10, 2018: Salzburg to Prague: through the heart of Europe

Salzburg and Prague form bookends to this compelling tour through the Salzburg Lakes and along the Danube into Bohemia. Starting with the Alps as our backdrop, we will bike through countrysides that epitomize what most people think of when they hear the word “Europe”: deep green forests and rolling hills, small towns watched over by ancient castles, and little villages with church steeples dotting the countryside.
