Why you'll love this trip
  • Wandering and photographing the celebrated urban park and aerial greenway in New York City along the Highline Trail.
  • Explore the streets of Philadelphia and admire the scenic car-free boulevards, the historic Liberty Bell, and Independence Hall.
  • See another side of life when you visit an Amish farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and learn about their customs and traditions.
  • Get wet on the famous Maid of the Mist boat tour as you marvel at the power and beauty of Niagara Falls.
  • Hike the three-mile round trip gorge trail at Watkins Glen State Park, which passes by, over and under 19 picturesque waterfalls.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • This trip involves either a partial or full camping experience, giving you access to more remote destinations at close proximity, and the joy of camping under the night skies and beside a campfire. This is a participatory trip – a fancy way of saying you’re not just along for the ride, but you are part of a team! Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and help out with camp activities like food prep and washing up. It’s all about giving your new travel mates a hand, and everyone knows there’s nothing worse than trying to put up a tent on your own!
  • That teamwork also extends to our optional food kitty of approximately USD 15 per day, run to cover the cost of meals. This kitty saves you worrying about stuff like where to get food or what exactly sales tax is and helps keep your costs down. Instead of paying individually as you go, it means we can bulk purchase items and cook our own food – though there’s always the chance to use it for the occasional pizza night! The kitty is optional and for your convenience, so if you've got specific dietary requirements you can opt out and purchase (and cook) your own food.
  • Ensure you bring sturdy walking shoes and comfortable clothes. To make the most of the trip, it's best if you have at least a moderate level of fitness.
