A Natu ral Adventu re in the Ring of F i re 8 Days / 7 Nights Grab a group of friends, plan a completely unique outdoor adventure, and get on the road to the Shasta Cascade region. When you reach the region, we’ll take it from there! You don’t have to worry about where to go, how to get there or how to have the coolest experience possible. We’ve got it covered. After you tear yourself away from San Francisco, you’ll be headed for Lake Tahoe, where a violent volcanic eruption created what is possibly the most scenic drive in America. The water is so clear you can see objects 75 feet below the surface. We’ve arranged for a guided hike to some of the most dramatic locations. From there, it’s off to Lassen Volcanic National Park, one of the Shasta Cascade region’s three Ring of Fire volcanoes, where a guided tour will take you through the park’s best natural features and hydrothermal area, all the while explaining what you are seeing. It’s underground from there, into the caves at Lava Beds National Monument and up again, to the heights of Mt. Shasta. You’ll be coming back down to earth at Shasta Lake, where you’ll be staying in nearby Redding and —of course —returning home with memories and stories galore! We provide complete and explicit directions to get from place to place when you are not with a guide and highly qualified guides in the places where you want to be completely engaged. Day One As you begin your trip, San Francisco opens her Golden Gates to beckon you to “lose your heart.” Prepare to experience a wealth of vibrant sights and sounds found nowhere else. The city’s reputation as a fun-loving rollicking place is well deserved, dating back to the Gold Rush era when jumping saloons were filled with prospectors with stories to tell. The city has held out a welcome hand to all and today magically blends a myriad of cultures, ethnic groups, and lifestyles. Mountains and coastlines add a beautiful natural backdrop to this very colorful place. To enjoy the natural beauty, plan to get out to experience San Francisco during free time; walk along the beach and ride a cable car to the top of Nob Hill where incredible views await. We will assist you to familiarize yourself with San Francisco on the Barbary Coast Trail, a 3.8 mile route following bronze medallions set in the sidewalks that connect 20 of the city’s most important locations. Marvel at a collection of historic ships, the first Asian temple in America, the birthplace of the Gold Rush and more. Follow that with a visit to Fisherman’s Wharf, where you can have incredible views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and the cityscape along with your seafood. Nearby Ghirardelli Square transformed a 19th century chocolate factory into a fabulous marketplace of restaurants featuring new one-of-a-kind shops and culinary experts from around the world. The tour will also take you past San Francisco’s famous “Painted Ladies;” blocks and blocks of Victorian homes that survived the fire of 1906. And of course, no visit to San Francisco is complete without a stop in Chinatown. Enjoy authentic Chinese food and revel in the excitement of this electric part of the city. Day T wo Visiting Sacramento introduces you to California’s Old West. John Sutter, famous for setting off the 1
