Find the perfect O.A.R.S. trip

The Desert Southwest

Red rock country. An arid land that reveals the structure of the earth and the Jurassic remains of Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops. The wild west rivers in the U.S. southwest run the gamut from relaxing to screaming Class IV-V rapids.

Southwest Adventure Vacations: Utah, Colorado and the Grand Canyon

The Rockies

The great spine of North America. Land of glacial lakes, fast water and air so clear you can almost see tomorrow’s destination. Rugged mountains, draped in pine and topped with glacial ice, hug the horizon.

Rocky Mountain Adventure Vacations: Idaho and Wyoming

California and the Pacific Northwest

Gold, furs, and timber lured pioneers here in the 19th century. Now we see even greater riches: a world of natural wonders. There are warm skies, a vast array of eco-systems, and a kaleidoscopic collection of flora and fauna.

California & Pacific Northwest Adventure Vacations: California, Oregon and British Columbia

Alaska and the Arctic

Where the wild things are. Some of the world’s most remote rivers flowing through virgin forests. It’s the kind of country where caribou herds cross the land, orca whales patrol the fjords, and grizzlies hunt for fish and berries.

Alaska & Arctic Adventure Vacations: Alaska

Latin America and South America

A place of vivid contrasts. From dense rainforests to deserts, from raging rivers to calm gulf waters. No less vibrant is the range of cultures. Colonial cities and Inca ruins vie for your attention along with the hospitality of Andean villagers.

Latin America and South America Adventures: Mexico, Galápagos, Peru, Chile

The South Pacific

Paradise found. Rivers filled with jungle rainwater cutting through volcanic gorges and running down to an ocean of turquoise waters bounded by silky beaches and rainbow coral reefs.

South Pacific Adventures: Fiji
