Back in 1997, I founded Zephyr Adventures as the world’s first inline skating tour company. Over the years, we evolved our offerings to include more and more activities such as hiking, biking, and kayaking.
This year, we decided it was time to not only evolve our tour offerings (check out our new Specialty Adventure Category) but to evolve the Zephyr brand and logo as well.

We traveled to 12 different countries on 21 action-packed trips where we hiked, biked, skated, kayaked, snorkeled, rode horseback, rafted, and ziplined. We shared incredible meals, wine, and beer Continue Reading →
Getting your passport stolen, having your bank freeze your account, or getting injured or sick just before or during your trip can make your vacation quickly go from a relaxing experience to a stressful one. We collaborated with our sister company, Taste Vacations, to come up with a list of travel tips that can help Continue Reading →
What is high in the middle and round on the ends? OHIO! New skate tour locations are nearly impossible to find but they are super important to us because our skaters like to visit new places – and we do, too! The criteria for new locations is daunting. There has to be a perfect storm Continue Reading →
We recently asked our alumni to describe the adventures they’ve been on with Zephyr, but there was a catch. They could only use one word. Above is the result of this survey in a word cloud. We’ve also posted a larger version here. Word clouds are a visual way of representing how often the same Continue Reading →
