TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERTS National Parks and California
Lifelong believers in the transformative power of nature, Marty and Mark are on a mission to reacquaint the public—particularly the younger set—with America’s national parks. Focusing on parks west of the Mississippi and in Alaska and southern Florida, they have spent years exploring these wilderness areas, identifying the most experienced guides (some PhDs, others former park rangers), testing lodging options all the way from cushy hotels to backcountry base camps, and meeting the local characters that bring life to each park—and, now, each trip. They love to arrange trips that get people just slightly out of their comfort zone, always including activities adjusted to each traveler’s ability level, whether that’s a gentle float or Class IV whitewater, an easy walk or a punishing hike. They also specialize in outdoor-focused trips to California, from redwoods to beach to Sierras. Most of their travelers choose to drive themselves around, detailed itinerary in hand and guides accompanying them when helpful, but for those with far more money than time, Marty and Mark can book chartered planes to whisk groups from park to park. They can even make Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon doable in a single trip.
