New 2016 Encore-Only Adventures and Guided Itineraries
Slovenia: Julian Alps to the Adriatic: Slovenia’s magnificent natural beauty and warm, friendly culture will captivate travelers. Soak up the beautiful scenery of Kamniška Bistrica while walking among the pine-shingle huts of local shepherds. Float in a pletna boat across Lake Bled. Tour traditional salt flats in Sečovlje Nature Park and enjoy a wine tasting at a family-run winery in the hilltop town of Medana. Feel refreshed by the droplets bouncing off of the “hidden” waterfall of Kozjak before traveling to the wine growing region of Goriska Brda where innovative vintners use the ancient method of aging wine in qvevri, large earthenware vessels lined with beeswax and buried underground. This exclusive new tour will launch with an Encore-Only Departure on August 24, 2016 and then be open to all guests for subsequent departure dates.

France: Lavender in Provence: Travelers will experience the allure of Provence by spending time in Sault admiring the beauty of the lavender fields in full bloom and visiting a working lavender distillery. In Vaison, explore the outdoor markets, sampling local specialties ranging from truffles and lavender honey to olive tapenades before picnicking at Mont Serein among the larch trees and wild flowers with a grand view of the snow-capped Alps. Stroll through the paths of Saint Michel l’Observatoire lined with aromatic herbs on the way to a family’s goat farm to taste their fresh cheeses still wrapped in chestnut leaves. This trip will have two departure dates in 2016 on June 20th and July 4th.

New Flight + Tour Combos & Tour Extensions
