The Yellowstone trip was AMAZING! To have the opportunity to watch (and HEAR!!!) a pack of 18 wolves was incredible! The guides were knowledgeable and fun - a great combination. Do yourself a favor and see Yellowstone in the dead of the winter - the wildlife viewing is very much alive! Thanks Tara/Green Edventures for another trip of a lifetime!!

My third trip with Green Edventures! The guides were fantastic. We traveled with 2 guides. One American and one local who were both very knowledgeable and fun. All of our accommodations were really cool, and the food was great. Each day held the promise of a magical experience, and I was not disappointed! Countless Dolphins, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, Scarlet macaws, and so many other kinds of birds. I had a wonderful time, met some new friends and can't wait until I get to go on another Green Edventure.
Just returned from the Northwoods Women's edventure trip and it was spectacular! The scenery was magnificent, the accommodations cozy and the daily activities were varied, informative and exhilarating! I cannot say enough about the two naturalists at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Licia and Annie, who took care of all the myriad details, including last minute schedule changes to accommodate weather updates. Also, the speakers and recreation guides were passionate and truly engaged the group in the history and ecology of the area. I even got to experience the thrill of riding an E-bike! I highly recommend this marvelous, colorful trip, especially if you live in an area where autumn can be subtle.
This trip had just the right amount and variety of activity. Loads of fun in a beautiful place! Who knew there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
