Our Trips are Multi-Activity
We choose destinations that are especially scenic AND offer an array of fun ways to explore the outdoors. For example, our Canadian Rockies trip includes canoeing, riding a gondola, three hikes, walking a glacier, kayaking on a scenic lake, white water rafting, and more. These are not hiking trips with a white water rafting day included nor are they biking-only trips. Each trip is a true multi-activity vacation.
The last thing anyone on a guided trip wants to think about is paying for something extra. Canyon Calling trips include all meals (with the exception of a few meals on our international trips), all accommodation, all land (and sometimes water transport), all activities, all activity guide services and tipping, and all entrance fees to museums, attractions, and national parks. At the end of a wonderful tour, guests always have the option to extend a gratuity to their Canyon Calling Trip Leader and it is most appreciated.
One Fitness Rating
All our trips are designed for moderately-fit women. In general, if you are reasonably active in your life then you’ll do just fine on our trips. This means you should be able to hike 5-8 miles over undulating terrain in one day. We choose a hiking pace that is comfortable for all and we take the time to soak in the views, smell the flowers and photograph the wildlife. We select rafting trips where the rapids are rated 3’s on average and we choose kayaking trips where the wind is usually at our backs on the way home, and on horseback rides we always go slowly downhill.
Photos of You
Our guides take photos throughout the tour – especially of you – and provide a link to access photos so that after each trip you can choose the digital prints you want. On vacation, you’re usually busy photographing the scenery. We make sure that you have photos of you and your companions and we know all the best places and ideal opportunities to get those shots. We provide you with a link to a secure, free repository so you can download and upload photos that you want from the trip.
Journeys for the Soul
Often our guests register for our adventures when a life shift occurs. For some it may be a divorce, major career change, death or near death experience, retirement, or some other major life event. Our adventures very often include visits to spiritual places such as native ruins that guests connect with; a whisper from the past, perhaps a future vision of themselves that brings inspiration. To enhance your adventure experience, we’ve partnered with Mystical Truth (www.mysticaltruth.com) to provide the option to have a psychic reading. This is not “Sedona woo-woo” or religious based, but rather an opportunity for an insightful interaction; a private consultation with a very prominent and talented psychic.
