Austin Adventures' Montana Family Vacation Named One of “50 Tours of a Lifetime”
The tours selected go beyond destination to add meaning and context. They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, and new ways of thinking— all critically important given the world’s complex issues.
This trip will be featured in the May 2014 issue and listed on a special Tours of a Lifetime landing page on National Geographic Traveler’s award-winning website.
“Southeastern Montana is a gem of a region right here in our own backyard,” explains Dan Austin, Founder and President of Billings, MT-based Austin Adventures. “It’s been overlooked by adventure travelers far too long. That’s why we took great care in building what we think is a captivating tour itinerary that takes in all the best activities and places. There’s a huge satisfaction in knowing the editors of National Geographic Traveler agreed!”
The magazine’s selection process looked for 2014’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided and most sustainable tours offered worldwide.
“This year marks the 30th anniversary of National Geographic Traveler, which has always looked at the world through the lens of culture, nature, and history. The tours we selected go beyond destination to add meaning and context,” said Norie Quintos, executive editor. “They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, and new ways of thinking— all critically important given the world’s complex issues.”
