Great Explorations is a boutique tour operator specializing in providing active vacations in North America, Europe and around the world. We are a private company with a simple philosophy: to create and deliver exceptional, one-of-a-kind trips for spirited individuals and groups who prefer active travel as a way to see the world and to do it in the company of fun, interesting people. Bicycling and walking/hiking are our preferred means of travel as we believe these to be the most rewarding ways to explore a place and to interact with its people.
