Get in the FLOW with Adventure Flow Tours

Category: Destinations | Favorites | On The Scene | Recreationbhicks @ 07:15

Juneau is a popular stop on almost every Alaskan cruise, with shopping, sight-seeing, and whale watching being just SOME of the amazing options to choose from while in port. This blogger, though, set his sights on something a little more... ADVENTUROUS!

Adventure Flow offers outdoor small group tours that focus on providing the optimal Alaskan experience. The most attractive feature of Adventure Flow is the promise that their passionate guides will take you a step away from the crowds—most guided hikes in the area are highly populated, but Adventure Flow takes your small group on an intimate hike together. With walking, hiking, and smartphone photography tours they have something for everyone to enjoy the Southeast Alaska splendor. Adventure Flow tours place you in the moment and maximize your experience, giving you a unique opportunity not offered by any other tour operator. 

Here I am, preparing to embark on a Smart Phone Photography Tour. I was very excited to get started! The description of the tour promised that More...

We've rounded up 10 of our favorite places to travel for the Northern Lights. Pair these destinations with a great hotel, and you've got a getaway unlike any other. 

1. Alaska. For U.S. and Canadian citizens hoping to stay close to home, Alaska is a great place to travel for a Northern Lights adventure.

Discover the natural beauty of Alaska

Category: Destinations | Itineraries | SightseeingChristine @ 06:34

Many, many years ago, as part of a summer camp field trip, I went to see the movie Alaska, and I thought the scenery (filmed mostly on location) was incredible. I had never seen anything like it. The girl sitting next to me actually got sick from all the dizzying shots of mountain peak, but I was riveted. There’s no other place in the U.S. like it, and few others in the world. More...

A relaxing Alaska vacation

Category: DestinationsMegan Leader @ 06:41

Every now and then, a destination will take me by surprise. Anchorage, Alaska, was one of those cities. I had envisioned an icy wilderness, but Anchorage offers so much more than winter sports. With all its natural splendor, there's no wonder it's such a popular spot to visit. Anchorage is the outdoor enthusiast's dream, but it also offers a host of great restaurants and bars. Here are a few things I would definitely fit into an Anchorage itinerary.

Travel around the world at film festivals - locally, or around the world

During the past week, I’ve been transported to a small village in Brazil, a nation made up of 2,000 islands in the Indian Ocean known as The Maldives and to massive melting glaciers in Greenland, Alaska and Montana.

Super Tuesday: Selecting candidates can be like picking vacation spots

Category: Janet @ 10:26

If you’re still reading these politically-inspired blog posts, then hats off to you. You’ve made it all the way to Super Tuesday. Wolf Blitzer and friends will be using all of their touch screen technology to turn states red, blue, purple and probably plaid before it is all over tonight. For travelers deciding to pick where to go for their summer vacation, sometimes, looking at the layout of the country much like the candidates do might actually make sense. For the sake of argument, today’s Super Tuesday actually has some pretty choice choices. More...
