  Oct. 15 - Nov. 1           Nepal: 18 Days Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

  Jan | Feb        Guatemala  
  Experience the thrill of an insider’s Guatemala. Long-time Central American adventurer and artist/designer/documentary film-maker, John Heaton, crafted this very special journey with me. Join me for the ultimate in Guatemalan adventure travel: rich Maya heritage and Spanish colonial charms - all with the region's natural drama as backdrop: 34 volcanoes, steaming jungles, cool mountain villages.
This very special trip is an intimate, travel-lover's journey to which only a handful of visitors will get access.

The UNESCO World Heritage colonial city of Antigua will be your base; your lodging Heaton's own exquisite villa located on the historic Calle del Arco. You will travel safely and comfortably via helicopter and private plane to explore the Guatemalan Highlands: Lake Atitlán, Pacaya - one of  Guatemala's 34 volcanoes, as well as delving into the mythic ancient Maya city of Tikal and the tropical jungles of the Caribbean's Rio Dulce. Our private river lodge (a low impact jungle/river retreat featured in Architectural Digest) will be your orchid-draped hideaway while visiting ancient jungles, waterways and ruins. There are many ways to visit Guatemala, but after serious investigation, this is the only way I’ll go! A fantastic journey. This tour may be arranged on a private basis and customized to your own interests.
