Travel + Leisure’s “Best Life-Changing Trips” Includes ALA’s Kenai Peninsula Adventure in Roundup of Twenty-Two Horizon Expanding Tours
Billings, MT – The company that has been named the “World’s Best Tour Operator” for two years running by Travel + Leisure Magazine has just received another award from its editors. Austin-Lehman Adventures’ Alaska Kenai Peninsula Adventure has been recognized as one of the “Best Life-Changing Trips” worldwide.
In the November edition as well as online the magazine showcases 22 “trips of a lifetime” including; a fight to the bottom of the world, a private expedition to see emperor penguins, a kite-skiing excursion across an icy horizon, a luxury tent camp atop a 200-foot icefall, and Austin-Lehman’s insider’s tour of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.
“We are honored by this lofty recognition,” said Dan Austin, Co-Founder and Director. “But the editors are dead-on with their choice. I don’t know of any other tour of ours that receives more glowing testimonials from awe-struck guests than our Alaska Kenai Peninsula adventure.”
According to the magazine, “On this action-packed wilderness trip, you’ll spot whales and porpoises from a kayak, watch icebergs calve with a glacier expert, hike to North America’s largest ice field, and pedal past wildflower-strewn meadows and valleys. Plus, a marine biologist will bring you behind the scenes at a sea-life rehab center,” wrote Peter Frank.
A special date for Travel + Leisure readers has been set for June 19–24, 2011 priced at $2,998 per person (double occupancy) for the six day adventure. Additional departure dates including special family-focused trips can be booked as well.
The magazine went on to say, “And more than ever, travelers are looking to be inspired by unique experiences. People want trips that “expand horizons, remove you from your comfort zone, and prompt you to reevaluate what’s important in life.”
