Grasshopper Adventures is bringing 15+ years of adventure tour experience across Asia to the U.S. and Canada with three, exciting new programs; Alaska & the Yukon, Coastal Maine, and the Florida Everglades to Key West.
DENVER, CO, December 03, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Long synonymous with eco-friendly tours that engage local communities, Grasshopper Adventures is bringing that same ethos to North America. Exploring the outdoors by bike, kayak, canoe and foot, the tours’ active elements are both non-intimidating and achievable for a wide range of fitness levels. The small group size offers guests a sustainable alternative to traditional bus or cruise touring and the opportunity to spend time with experts in local communities.
“To really experience the outdoors in North America we had to go beyond cycling,” says Grasshopper Brand Ambassador, Steve Grace. “We’ve included kayaking and canoeing, short hikes and even a wetlands walk, with tours led by expert naturalists and guides.”
Asked to list a few highlights, Grace says that there are many to list, but his top five are:
1. Cycling the Gold Rush route and canoeing the Yukon – “Breathtaking.”
2. Kayaking to Mendenhall Glacier – “Ranks high on my “wow” scale.”
3. The Everglades by airboat – “Thrilling ride through a remarkable ecosystem.”
4. Biking overseas to Key West – “Tops many cycling bucket lists for good reason.”
5. Coastal Maine, “Historic, gentle cycling and beautiful. You’ll want to come back”
Grasshopper Adventures’ North American Collection is on sale now, with scheduled dates from February 2021 through the fall, including a limited time $100 booking offer, allowing you to secure your vacation for less.
The new North American tours also feature visits to artisan’s studios, indigenous villages and include interaction with local experts who are change-makers in their respective fields. “We’re always enhancing the travel experiences, so I’m constantly tinkering with tour programs,” says Grace. ” Reflecting contemporary life, meeting folks engaged in community issues, that’s true authenticity and that sets us apart.”
While Grasshopper has been planning a move to North America for several years, the disruption in international travel was the motivation needed to kickstart these long dreamed of programs to new frontiers. Look for more, including the new signature series in Australia, home of company Owner & Chief, Adam Platt-Hepworth.
Grasshopper Adventures has taken thousands of people on multi active and biking tours through Asia for more than 15 years and in 2020 introduced a range of inspired adventures beyond Asia. All trips focus on the natural environment, meaningful stories and interaction with local communities. The company’s carefully crafted itineraries enable an active journey of discovery at a superior level of value. Accommodations are comfortable and unique, delicious food is a key element and guides are experts in their fields.
