Death Valley is the perfect antidote to the winter blahs! In February the skies are clear and sunny (but not too hot!) and the hiking is excellent. Then there is the fascinating geology, unique ecology, and equally engaging human history. If you long to put away your down jacket and put on your shorts, feel warm sun on your deprived skin, and be totally immersed in a place that has a mythic status for many of us, join us as we explore one of our newest National Parks with a professional geologist. $1725 Rating: 1  3 4 5

On this trip we start with an exploration of Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, the top neotropical birding site in Belize. We'll learn about the inland wildlife, conservation movements, and visit a Mayan ruin.

Located right on the equator, Ecuador has incredibly rich and varied geography and natural history. The Amazon Jungle is known for its exceptional biodiversity and the peoples who have lived there for centuries. The Galapagos Islands are loved the world over for their rich and diverse wildlife and plants, and fantastic geology. On this journey we experience both. We'll spend four days in the jungle learning about the flora, fauna and customs of the people who live there. We then spend 8 days in the Galapagos on three different islands, where we swim with sea lions, snorkel in clear waters teeming with brightly colored fish, and walk within a few feet of blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, and giant tortoises. $4095 / Rating: 1 2  4 5.

The Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights) is one of the most unforgettable of natural phenomena. While a sighting is never guaranteed anywhere, Iceland in March is one of the best places to see the shimmering curtains of light. But our five days will pack in much more than just looking for Northern Flights: we'll tour Reykjavik, walk on a glacier, ride an Icelandic pony, feast on Icelandic specialties, and see evidence of Iceland's geothermal activity in all its many forms, from geysers to volcanoes. We'll hope to see the Northern Lights but even if we don't, we'll come away with a deep appreciation of this most magical of countries. $2885 Rating:  2 3 4 5
