Win Today's Featured Book: Riding the Hulahula to the Arctic Ocean: A Guide to 50 Extraordinary Adventures for the Seasoned Traveler by Don Mankin and Shannon Stowell with a Foreword by Sir Richard Branson
Millions of baby boomers discovered the lure of adventure travel during the heady days of the ’60s and ’70s. They then traded their backpacks for mortgages and turned their attention to families and careers. Now they are ready to rediscover the fun and excitement of traveling off the beaten path.
RIDING THE HULAHULA TO THE ARCTIC OCEAN describes dozens of unique trips for experienced travelers looking for challenge and excitement, scenic beauty and exposure to different cultures — from tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda to visiting the jungle tribes of Papua New Guinea to rafting the Hulahula River in northern Alaska.
The trips range widely in terms of physical demands and comfort, span all seven continents and include cultural adventures in exotic destinations as well as wilderness trips in remote and dramatically beautiful settings. All trips recognize the changing needs and physical realities that come with age, as well as the more complex, sophisticated expectations of the mature traveler.
Twenty six trips are described in extensive first-person accounts by experienced travelers. The narratives are personal and subjective, focusing as much on the rich experiences the authors had as on the details of where they went and what they did.
The book also offers shorter descriptions of an additional 26 trips recommended by tour operators in a survey by the Adventure Travel Trade Association. These trips also cover a wide range of destinations, activities and levels of difficulty.
Wherever your wanderlust is nudging you, RIDING THE HULAHULA TO THE ARCTIC OCEAN delivers inspiration and ideas to put adventure-hungry baby boomers back on the road.
