World-class Mountain Bike Adventure in the Midwest?
Escape Adventures Pioneers New Multi-activity Tour
Las Vegas, Nevada (February 2007) - Escape Adventures has announced a new multi-activity tour that features mountain biking, hiking, caving and canoeing in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. This 5-day all-inclusive trip is suited to all abilities and is offered in two different formats: inn-too-inn or camping.
With departures scheduled for April and November, when temperatures are cooler, the tour operator's "Ozark Adventure" will introduce active travelers to some of the Midwest's finest outdoor activities, including canoeing the Buffalo River - America's first National Wild and Scenic River, caving Blanchard Springs Caverns - dubbed by Life Magazine as "one of the most extraordinary finds of the century," and mountain biking and hiking the new Syllamo Trail, a world class trail consisting of over 50 miles of singletrack trails - all while enjoying the warm hospitality of Mountain View, the folk music capital of the world."
Arkansas is one of the few untapped adventure travel playgrounds in America, and the Ozark Mountains are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. The scenery is phenomenal, and the outdoor activities are diverse and easily accessible, which is why we want to introduce others to this amazing resource," explains Jared Fisher, Director of Escape Adventures. "When active travelers think of adventure travel within the U.S., they think of Alaska, the Rockies and Sierras. We aim to change that."
With offices in Moab, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada, Escape Adventures has specialized in first-class biking, hiking and multi-sport vacations throughout western North America since 1991.
