These are a few of our favorite photos from Iceland



That's a wrap! Our Iceland hiking tour wrapped up yesterday. First impressions: Our trip leader Barbara 'Babsi' Glanznig says, "Wow! We had picture perfect weather, endless opportunities to see wildlife really close and happy guests!" 

Some of her favorite wildlife encounters were the puffins, whales and dinner next to an Arctic Fox!


We don't have a picture of the fox, but we do have a shot of Babsi snacking on some dried fish. 


Seriously. This trip had some great hiking. 


The crew went off the beaten path. 


But the reward was worth it. Natural hot springs abound in Iceland, so why not?


Of course the scenery was spectacular.  



A special thanks to our group for taking part in Ryder-Walker's first-ever guided hiking tour in Iceland. We're definitely going back! Next year's dates are July 21-28, 2017

Training for the Tour du Mont Blanc



This photo comes from our guests Alicia and Susan. They're currently training for a private guided Tour du Mont Blanc. Alicia writes:

I thought you would get a kick out of the attached photo. A group of us going on the TMB trip completed the West Maroon Bells trail from Aspen to Crested Butte and back! 23 miles in 2 days!! Good training!!

Some of us wore the RW hat and loved the quality and breathability. Thank you for the gift.  

Susan Kurtz and I are in the photo. 
Thanks again for all your help and we are all very excited for the trip!!
