Pre-Planned or Customized Trips – Your Choice
We offer a pre-planned schedule of trips, as well as customized outings with an itinerary to fit your needs. You can peruse the trips on our trip schedule page. We are always adding new adventures to our schedule so check back early and often for the latest updates. For a customized outing, we can tailor to suit whether it is for a private party, as a special event, or a company/corporate team building activity. We currently offer these on a regional basis and we will bring you to only the best of what the area has to offer
Our Typical Day Trip….
Our typical day trip adventure will begin with the group gathering at our convenient pre-determined rally point (usually NYC). There, we will get the ball rolling with a short meet-and-greet and introductions to start our day. We’ll hop aboard our transportation, usually a large passenger van, and hit the road.
In route to the day’s venue we will sit back and enjoy our continental breakfast – nothing fancy, just something to stoke the fire in preparation for the adventure to come. Before long we will arrive at our destination with bated anticipation. Depending on our day’s activity, we will gear-up and hit the trails, water, rock face or whatever challenge lies ahead.
We are sure to find ourselves marveling at the beauty of a scenic overlook, or perhaps we will feel the spray from a cascading waterfall. Maybe we’ll spot red tailed hawks soaring over our heads, or explore an old abandon iron mine. All of this is sure to build a hearty appetite. We will stop at one of these memorable locations and break out our gourmet picnic lunches and feast – eat, drink and re-charge ourselves for the second half of our day.
There will be plenty of time to take pictures, relax, soak up some fresh air and hang out with your fellow day trippers. Regrettably, we will make our way back to our starting point, board-up, and head back for home possibly a bit tired but with great memories and a new attitude ready to tackle whatever our “real lives” can throw at us.
Where Will Our Adventure Trips Take You?
Good question! How about some of the many state parks along the beautiful Hudson River Valley – Harriman, Storm King, and Hudson Highlands State Parks come to mind with truly magnificent views from high above the Hudson River. There’s the Shawangunks, Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve – an oasis for the hiker, mountain biker and rock climber. A bit further from home are the Delaware and Lehigh rivers, and the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains – well known for their water sports and backcountry possibilities…. and the list goes on.
