Journey to the Last Frontier...for Less
Country Travel DISCOVERIES is pleased to announce we've extended our early-bird deal for Alaska & the Yukon Discovery, with three planned departures open for summer 2014. Enjoy savings of up to $400.00 per couple ($200.00 per person) when making a reservation before March 31, 2014.
As Operations Director Nan Delwiche writes in an article on our blog: "[Alaska & the Yukon] can move you and create memories to last all of your days. The mountains are among the most spectacular sights you’ll ever see, anywhere. You’ll never forget the mighty glaciers, amazing wildlife, and the friendly, hardy people who call this rugged land 'home'."
Popular Heartland Tours Sold Out; New Dates Added
The new dates are August 19-25 and September 11-17, the latter allowing back-to-back scheduling with Our Iowa...and Yours, Too!, an also-popular tour of the eastern part of the state.
Presented in conjunction with Our Iowa Magazine, both tours spotlight diverse, unique aspects of the 29th state, carefully selected with input from the publication's highly knowledgeable editorial staff.

Southwest Adventure Highlights from Discovery Director Phil Pesch
The American West abounds with dazzling natural beauty. Perhaps one of the most iconic sites in this stunning landscape is the Grand Canyon. Over a mile deep, more than 200 river miles long, and at least ten miles wide in the narrower sections, the Grand Canyon is a not-to-be-missed part of any western journey.
“You can see a hundred pictures of the Grand Canyon, see it in dozens of movies, and that still won’t give you a sense of the sheer scale or beauty of it,” says Phil Pesch, DISCOVERIES Director for the last seven years.
Featured Travelogue by Bridget McMahon
Just eight weeks into my new position as the Administrative Coordinator with Country Travel DISCOVERIES, I was excited to go on my first discovery with the travel group visiting Coastal Carolina & the Georgia Shores (May 5-11, 2013). I took part as a regular traveler, and wrote about my experiences here every day of the trip. I really enjoyed meeting new people, learning more about the coastal Carolina and Georgia shores regions, and just having a relaxing and good time!
New Departure to "the Land of Ice and Fire" Plus Early Booking Savings
With only limited spots left on the first departure of this very popular discovery tour, Country Travel DISCOVERIES has added a new Aug 28-Sep 6, 2014 departure for the popular Wonders of Iceland (with Greenland extension).
You'll visit such stunning architectural landmarks as Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral (pictured right) while strolling the quaint, art-lined streets of Reykjavik, see the famed Icelandic horses, and refresh yourself in the mineral-rich, rejuvenating waters of the Blue Lagoon. You'll see glistening icebergs, grand waterfalls, spouting geysers, geological wonders, and a unique, otherworldly landscape as mysterious as when Vikings first arrived here. This "Land of Ice and Fire" is truly a "bucket list" destination that you'll never forget.
