-- Even as the pandemic raged, Austin Adventures has planned ahead to assure travelers that as the clouds lift, adventure aplenty lies ahead.
"The company," explains Dan Austin, Founder and Visionary, "has pursued a two-fold strategy over the past few years. The first was to expand inventory in the North American market. The second was to beef up exposure for offshore programs that are easy to access on shorter-haul international fights."
The rush to recovery has started. The company has seen unprecedented search activity and early season bookings for its small-group and group exclusive North American tours. Some national park trip dates are already sold out and travelers should call to check on availability as soon as possible.

Internationally, Costa Rica and Peru are the two destinations currently receiving the most interest, Austin notes. Two new tours in particular are gaining momentum in these easy-to-reach destinations:
In a state of readiness for what Austin anticipates will be a record-breaking 2022 season is a handful of new-for-2022 adventures that embrace in true Austin Adventures style this country's still-wild and natural areas. Itineraries also include, for the first time, explorations of iconic regions on the Atlantic seaboard.
