I’m an Adventure Travel Specialist
I have completed a two year Adventure Travel program, that included a ranch stay, two day river rafting in British Columbia, cross country skiing and heli-snow shoeing in the Canadian Rockies – a helicopter took me to the top of the mountain, to be above the tree line for a most incredible view!
I’m listed as an Adventure Travel Specialist with the Adventure Council and listed in the September issue of National Geographic Adventure Magazine. In a few weeks I will be traveling to Costa Rica, a very popular adventure and active vacation destination, so I can better advise my clients on the possibilities in planning their perfect trip!
I98 million people have taken an adventure trip in the past five years.
