Adventure Travel Worldwide
Why choose AMC Adventure Travel trips versus those offered by others?
Each trip is individually conceived and run by the trip leader who is passionate about creating a great experience for an active traveler. Trips are run on a non-profit basis, keeping the initial trip price low. All participant money not spent on the trip is returned to the participant(s).
What types of trips are there?
Adventure Travel takes you to locations both within the United States and to other continents. We travel to national parks in the U.S. like Yosemite and Death Valley, and also travel internationally to countries like Australia, New Zealand, Italy, South Africa, Japan, Ireland, England, and many more. We offer hiking, trekking, cycling, kayaking/canoeing, skiing, walking tours and cultural excursions. The level of effort varies from moderate to strenuous. Many of the trips also include a cultural or environmental component.
What are the volunteer trip leaders like?
All are fully qualified AMC chapter trip leaders who have, in addition, undergone substantial additional instruction and training before being allowed to lead adventure travel trips. All have Wilderness First Aid and CPR certification.
What is the typical group size?
One of the benefits of traveling with AMC is the small group sizes. A typical trip will have a leader and an associate leader and 10-16 participants.
Who are your fellow trip participants?
Our trips are open to all! Our participants share a passion and enthusiasm for outdoor recreation. Each trip is made up of a diverse group of people of different ages, backgrounds, nationalities, and genders. The typical age range is 55-70 years old although we often have people younger and older on trips.
