We are starting back up with CoVid awareness and care.  You can still create your dream experience, though it will be with CoVid Care.

Our tours are designed to meet your needs and wishes. We like to serve you in a personal manner, so that you can get the most from your time on your trip. We offer women’s trips; family trips and camp; just-kids trips and summer camp; and corporate, team-building experiences. Don’t want to travel? Stay local and explore hidden and little known natural areas in your own backyard. Check out some local paddling locations and distances. Ready to start planning your next outdoor adventure?

As an Outfitter/Guide with American Canoe Association, our insurance is covered and the Bold Paths WAIVER FOR BOATING  can be downloaded and brought to the event you are attending.

Bold Paths has set up trips to Slovenia to enjoy the cultural exchange with local people there, as well as time exploring the natural world in the Alps. Tours to Slovenia have been created by visiting all of the lodging and sites we will go to, and meeting the local guides and hotel and restaurant owners. The extremely wonderful local tour guides there take care of our needs, as well as have knowledge of the local customs and language, and are fluent in the English language.
