The Open Road

Open Roads Open Minds, organizes and conducts tours for youths and adults, promoting adventure, creativity, cultural awareness, and respect for the environment.

We invite you to join us on an adventure: Imagine taking a bush plane into the Alaskan wilderness for white-water rafting, tracing the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson in the French Cevennes, discovering Anasazi mysteries in the canyons of the American Southwest, or taking a riverboat through the jungles of Costa Rica.

We started Open Roads Open Minds to enjoy traveling with friendly people to their favorite destinations. We limit the number of clients on each trip to 7 so that we can travel together in one vehicle. We look forward to getting to know you personally. We expect our travel adventure will build friendships for us all.

With many equestrian's in the family, view our tour of riding horses in the Camargue in France or along the edge of a canyon in the American Southwest.
