Age or active physical ability may close some adventure vacation doors for avid travelers, but other doors open. A great way to explore natural environments without the joint strain of hiking or cycling is to take to the water in a sea kayak with Mother Nature ready to meet you right there at eye level. We check out kayaking vacations in the Galapagos Islands, Corsica, Cuba, British Columbia and Mexico’s Sea of Cortez.
There is no better way to appreciate the history, culture and dramatic natural environments of Croatia’s coast than with a small ship yacht cruise.

Join her adventure!
Whether you are keen on ancient Roman history, trying out cultural cuisines on your travels, visiting some Game of Thrones sets where the famous series seasons were shot, or just taking a blissful sunset cruise at the end of a busy day of exploration, you will discover the latest offerings while visiting Split, Croatia with author, Alison Gardner.
