We are hoping to begin travelling again, safely in the fall of 2021. A few trips have seats available plus our Independent Rowing Experiences give you maximum flexibility and control over when you travel and with whom. Many unknowns and variables continue with the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on our planning.

We are very excited to announce our initial lineup of 2022 trips! Some are shown here, but please click on the 2022 Rowing Trips link to get a full list of what we are planning.
