Staff Educational Trips

As part of our ongoing development (and to support our passion for discovery and learning), AmeriCan Adventures encourages staff to explore new regions and attractions as part of a sponsored Staff Travel program.   Here you can read about some of our recent experiences:

All Around Oregon! – Brandon Ford

All Around Oregon! – Brandon Ford

Earlier this year, I decided to explore a state that I’ve heard nothing but great things about: Oregon. Often overlooked in comparison to California’s coast, the Oregon coast has many beautiful rocky cliff view points and expansive beaches.

Trails and Ales Journey through Central Oregon – Mike May

Trails and Ales Journey through Central Oregon – Mike May

In April I was able to take advantage of AmeriCan Adventures’ staff travel benefit by exploring the John Day Fossil Beds area of Oregon. A few weeks before my trip Iain Shiels (Product Manager for Grand American Adventures) sent me a photo of the Painted Hills area and said, “I want to do a trip that goes here.”

Alaskan Towns & Range – Matt Berna

Alaskan Towns & Range – Matt Berna

Since starting as a leader in 1993, I have always dreamt of a road trip through Alaska. The lure of wide open roads, magnificent mountain ranges and lush coastal parks would be the penultimate prize in my quest to visit all 50 US States.

Acadia National Park – Josh Garber

Acadia National Park – Josh Garber

Josh Garber headed to Acadia National Park and camped on the island Isle au Haut, a small part of the park located 45 minutes from Stonington, Maine. Isle au Haut is a hunk of granite with a thin topsoil that is 6 miles long and 2 miles wide, home to 80 people in the summer and 40 people year round.

Joshua Tree, Sequoia & Kings Canyon – Tiprin Lujan

Joshua Tree, Sequoia & Kings Canyon – Tiprin Lujan

Over the past week I have been lucky enough to travel through three amazing and diverse areas; Sequoia, King’s Canyon, and Joshua Tree National Parks. After a long stint in the office, watching tour leaders come back with stunning pictures and great stories, I have to say, I had become a bit envious.

Big Bend National Park – Scott Greiner

Big Bend National Park – Scott Greiner

I love to get off the beaten path, so I decided to spend a week exploring Big Bend National Park in west Texas. Only about 350,000 visitors a year make it to this remote part of the US-Mexican border, where the Chisos Mountains nestle up against the Rio Grande River.

"There is no place in the world that offers such an amazing array of wilderness settings, vibrant cities, quaint towns, historic monuments and cultural diversity. And better yet, it comes served with a healthy slice of charming hospitality and honest gratitude. This is North America at its best – and this is what makes us so proud to ‘host’ our visitors on these unique travel experiences. I would like to personally invite you to get in touch with our office to start the process of creating your group’s unforgettable trip."Matt Berna
