We are a group of individuals who have made adventure travel an integral part of our lives - and want to share unique, budget adventures with other fun-loving, independent travelers who value cooperation. We invite all travelers, from the young to the young at heart, to contribute to the unique social dynamic that is created on every Green Tortoise trip. We plan on organizing local get togethers and unique day trips where we can share our travel stories, experiences and learn about new destinations. We'll organize group camping trips both in the US and internationally and use our experience as guides to create a memorable and exciting trip. During the trips, we will use our "local" knowledge and provide you with information on optional activities specific to the area we are visiting like kayaking, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, boating, to name a few . . . Come and join the fun - we're looking forward to meeting you and discovering new adventures together!
