Dana Grandparents Provence Tour

A Journey Through Family History

When Dana Norvell decided to go on the Provence Biking Adventure, it wasn’t just a chance to bike through the beautiful lavender fields or to indulge in the delicious French cuisine. It was a chance to journey through her own personal family history.     “Traveling to France was always on my list… Continue reading “A Journey Through Family History”

Father-Son Travel Duo:The Mighty Pribyl Boys

One of the best parts of our job at Zephyr Adventures is getting the opportunity to meet such wonderful and interesting people. We love hearing about where people are from, the places they’ve traveled, and the experiences they’ve had.

Yellowstone in the Winter – Big Animals in Big Sky Country

Zephyr Adventures completed a 4-night, 5-day cross-country ski and snowshoe tour in Montana and Yellowstone National Park in February.  Sub-zero temperatures and tromping through the woods may not be some peoples’ idea of a good time but the rich, inviting beauty of seeing Big Sky country in all its glory and with just a… Continue reading “Yellowstone in the Winter – Big Animals in Big Sky Country”

Season’s Greetings, Kiwi Style

  The month of December is celebrated in many different ways, shapes, and forms around this big world.  Prime rib roast feasts, Hallmark Channel reruns, and flocked Christmas trees are typical in the United States in December.  But what about the other countries out there whose holiday traditions can vary greatly compared… Continue reading “Season’s Greetings, Kiwi Style”

Zephyr’s Newest Focus – Yellowstone!

From my conversations with our travelers, I would guess those of you reading this have either never been to Yellowstone National Park or visited years ago as a kid. Although Yellowstone hosts more than three million visitors per year, in my trip there two weeks ago I noticed a good percentage of… Continue reading “Zephyr’s Newest Focus – Yellowstone!”

Colorado Family Multisport

I just returned from our Family Multisport Adventure in Colorado – the third Family Adventure in the past three years I had the pleasure of guiding. For an introduction to our Family Adventures and how they operate, please scroll down to the post of last August about our Lake Tahoe trip. That… Continue reading “Colorado Family Multisport”

Lake Tahoe Family Multisport

Because I just ran two trips back-to-back, this posting is right on the heels of the previous one about our Colorado Adventure. While both trips were multisport adventures, the one in Lake Tahoe, as a Family tour, was wildly different. We only started running Family Adventures last year, with an initial Yellowstone… Continue reading “Lake Tahoe Family Multisport”
