Besides the brilliant colors that we see on this tour, we want to experience the rural hamlets along the scenic routes, the small picturesque fishing villages along the coast, and the isolated homesteads tucked in among the color. We get off the interstates and take scenic routes to get a real flavor of the rural Northeast.
What a sight as the awe-inspiring colors of the graceful balloons lift into the crisp, clear skies over Albuquerque. When comparing prices, keep in mind that the fiesta is very weather oriented, so we include 4 opportunities to see the balloons! The Southwest has a rich history and culture to offer as well.
Highlights include the Cass Scenic Railroad, Hawk's Nest State Park with jet boat ride, Greenbrier Bunker tour, coal exhibition mine tour, and the Amtrak Autumn Colors Express through the New River Gorge.
Iceland is a land and culture forged by fire and ice. Where steaming lava fields and massive glaciers sculpt mountains and valleys, leaving thundering waterfalls and plunging fjords. In this land of many natural wonders, enjoy the rare opportunity to search for the aurora borealis — one of nature’s most dazzling light displays, also known as the northern lights.
