BikeHike Adventures turns 20
Vancouver-based BikeHike Adventures is celebrating its 20th year. In an interview with Where.ca, Trish Sare said she founded the travel company in 1994 after a five-year, around-the-world trip she took at age 20 following her mom’s death. Today, BikeHike consists of 50 easy-to-strenuous, hiking, biking, kayaking and multi-sport trips in more than 30 countries. Four of the trips have appeared in National Geographic Traveler’s annual 50 Tours of a Lifetime. Each guided tour is designed for a max of 12 travellers; nights are spent in small, family-run guesthouses, mountain-top lodges, and inns. Adventures like the week-long Walking Safari with the Nomads (from US$2299 per person) brings you even closer to the locals: you camp with a semi-nomadic Berber family and their herd of 200 animals, and trek south with them from the High Atlas Mountains into the Jebel Saghro in Morocco. tel: (888) 805-0061; bikehike.com.
