Autumn on Cape Cod is spectacular! The whales and birds are migrating, the air is crisp and clear, and the hordes of summer tourists have left. In addition to offering endless opportunities for outdoor adventure - we'll be hiking, kayaking, and biking - both the human and natural history of this remarkable area is fascinating. We start our adventure with two days each on Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, two well known islands that couldn't be more different in their feel. We then travel up the Cape to Provincetown, the town at the tip of Cape Cod that has been drawing writers, artists, and outdoor enthusiast for years. In addition to all our planned activities, we'll make sure you have enough free time to explore the variety of enchanting small towns the area is known for. Maximum group size: 12
This trip is appropriate for any active woman who walks regularly for exercise and wants a vacation that mixes being active in the outdoors with historical and cultural exploration. No previous experience in any of the activities is needed. Although, if it has been awhile since you have been on a bicycle we would recommend you do some bike riding or attend a spin class to get used to a bicycle again. Rating 1  3 4 5
