What Do You Dream of Doing?

Do It.

Animals & Safari

Seeing animals in the wild — from spy-hopping whales to dancing blue-footed boobies to lunging lions running full speed in the chase — is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience that can transform lives. It’s clear that we love watching animals and discovering their secret worlds.

Animals & Safari Trips

Art & Architecture

Beholding the artistic accomplishments of our ancestors, from exquisite mosaics, jewelry, ceramics and woodwork to mind-straining cathedrals, temples, castles and palaces, broadens our sense of human accomplishment and possibility. Adventure Collection offers a spectrum of tours that enhance our appreciation of art and architecture.

Art & Architecture Trips


On Adventure Collection backpacking trips, you can explore Nepal, Bhutan, Africa, the American Southwest or a host of other destinations, in the company of expert guides and support staff who will make sure you get the most out of your experience.

Backpacking Trips


When you first start a bike trip after being shackled to an automobile day after day, a feeling of relief washes over you. You find that you can still get from point A to point B in good time, yet you’re no longer at the mercy of traffic.

Biking Trips

Canoeing & Sea Kayaking

Exploring by canoe and sea kayak allows for an intimate appreciation of a place, at a slower, gentler and more interactive pace. Adventure Collection companies recognize the value of canoeing and kayaking and incorporate them into a wide variety of their itineraries.

Fishing seems so simple on the surface, but is so much more when you look deeper. Any experienced fisherman will tell you that the thrill doesn’t come just from the act of outsmarting a fish, but by being in communion with the natural world.

Fishing Trips

Helicopter Touring

Let’s take this out if we can. CMH is no longer a member and all of the tours listed on this page don’t seem to have much to do with the topic.

Sight-Seeing Trips

Skiing & Snowboarding

If you dream of skiing or snowboarding absolutely pristine terrain in the middle of nowhere, with only a small circle of fellow adventurers to share the exhilaration, you need to take a backcountry skiing course with Adventure Collection member NOLS.

Skiing & Snowboarding Trips

Small Ship Touring

Small-ship tours give you the best of both traveler worlds: a new destination to explore every day; with a safe, familiar, home-away-from-home place to sleep each night. And small-ship cruises will take you into off-the-beaten-waterway areas that bigger cruise ships aren’t able to visit.

Tundra Exploration

Can we take this one out as well? It doesn’t really make much sense when you look at the trips listed under it.

Tundra Exploration Trips


On an Adventure Collection walking adventure, you’ll notice things that those taking faster, less reflective forms of locomotion undoubtedly miss. You might wander deep into the bush in Botswana or trek into the mountains of central Mexico to see hundreds of millions of monarch butterflies.

Walking Trips
