Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit activetraveladventures.com to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

Jenny , an Active Travel Adventures listener lives in Flagstaff and shares her love of her beautiful adventure paradise on today's show – in fact after we chatted, she wondered if she should just keep Flagstaff a secret!  Located in northern Arizona on the southern part of the Colorado plateau, Flagstaff has a metro population over 130,000 which means it's large enough to support great culture and restaurants, yet small enough to retain a community feel.

Flagstaff sits next to Mount Elden at the south end of the San Francisco peaks, Arizona's highest mountain range.  Surprising to most, Flagstaff has a higher elevation than Denver at over 7000′.  This means you can have wonderful adventures year 'round in this high and dry desert landscape, from hiking and biking in the warm months to all of the winter sports in the colder months.  Skiers and snowboarders will love the 108″ average snowfall!  Unlike much of Arizona, it rarely exceeds 88 degrees F in the summer, and the normal annual range is 19°F to 81°F – perfect!
