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 — from tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda to visiting the jungle tribes of Papua New Guinea to rafting the Hulahula River in northern Alaska — for experienced travelers who are looking for challenge and excitement, scenic beauty and exposure to different cultures -- trips that range 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, which range widely in terms of physical demands and comfort, span all seven continents and range from wilderness/wildlife/natural history adventures in remote and dramatically beautiful locations to cultural/archaeological/anthropological adventures in exotic destinations. All trips recognize the changing needs and physical realities that come with age, as well as the more complex and sophisticated expectations of the mature traveler.
