It's September and that means it’s officially fall (and time for pumpkin spice overload)! We love the transition between seasons because it’s nature’s not-so-subtle way of reminding us that the only thing constant around us is change. It’s part of the natural ebb and flow of life, and it gives us an opportunity to reevaluate and transform ourselves too. Seize this opportunity to enjoy mother nature's ever-changing beauty and do something that will change you!
This month, we’re launching not one but two new Fall 2019 trips. The first is an epic pilgrimage hike through a new and stunning part of the world for us, and the second is a tried and true WHOA classic that’s going strong in its 6th year now! Read on to find out what’s new with WHOA this season…
IT'S YOUR TIME TO SHRINE!
WHOAx 2019: JAPAN
Japan’s exquisite culture and dramatic natural beauty give it a mystical allure that makes it the perfect new addition to our WHOAx Expedition line up! The highlight of this journey will undoubtedly be the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trek where we’ll delve into Japan’s spiritual traditions as we hike to stunning shrines nestled amid cedar-covered mountain slopes. We'll bookend our trek with time in Tokyo and Kyoto for more adventure and insight into the rich cultural heritage and buzzing modernity in the Land of the Rising Sun!
BAVARIA & OKTOBERFEST 2019
This adventure always sells out fast, so we’re giving you two dates to choose from in 2019! Join us as we go off the beaten path to hike, bike, and paraglide in picturesque Bavarian towns. We’ll end the trip in Munich at the Oktoberfest for beer, dancing, and more beer. Get ready to put on a dirndl or lederhosen and join us for the most unique way to take in all Bavaria has to offer at this time of year! This year's trip is starting later this month, so be sure to follow all the antics on Facebook and Instagram for a taste of what's in store.
