Our 31-Day Fire & Ice Tour is the ultimate summer teen tour adventure. Our journey to the Lands of Ice and Tropical Paradise begins as we jet to San Francisco. In San Francisco it's cable car rides, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street and Ghirardelli ice cream sundaes.
The action continues as summer teen tour travelers enjoy action-packed days water-skiing and tubing in Lake Tahoe. Next, we'll visit the beautiful campus of the University of Oregon, take an outrageous Sandrail Dune Buggy Ride across the sand dunes of Oregon, and share a thrilling jet boat trip down the Rogue River.
Next, your teen tour adventure heads to Whistler for a high-speed Zipline Canopy Tour in the mountains and a relaxing bike trip along the meadows of Whistler's valley trails. From there we take in the sites of Vancouver and Seattle, including the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Granville and Pike Place Markets, the Seattle Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture.
After several power-packed days on the Pacific Coast, our teen tour flies to Fairbanks where we’ll enjoy the beauty and excitement of Alaska. Our time in the “land of the midnight sun” includes Fairbanks, Denali National Park and Anchorage. In Denali National Park and Fairbanks, we’ll raft the most popular whitewater river in Alaska, visit a dogsledding base camp, and find gold on our gold panning adventure. In Anchorage we’ll see glaciers and icebergs up close on our Glacier Boat Trip, reach new heights at the top of Mt. Alyeska, and tour a wildlife conservation center. During our time in Alaska, we’ll be mesmerized by the abundant beauty and wildlife all around us, including bear, moose, caribou, dall sheep, and whales. Finally, we are ready for the grand finale of our summer teen tour – our 10 day Hawaiian Adventure.
We jet to Maui to begin the Hawaiian leg of our summer teen tour adventure. Have a blast on our banana boating adventure on the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific. A great day of snorkeling awaits us as our 65-foot catamaran sails to the Molokini Crater. We'll enjoy glass bottom viewing, a fun waterslide, and superb snorkeling amongst colorful tropical fish and giant sea turtles, during our snorkel cruise adventure.
Our short jet flight takes us to the "Big Island" where we will soak up the sun at our outrageous resort. We'll tour the Big Island, visit Volcanoes National Park, hike through Lava Tubes and run barefoot on the Black Sand Beaches.
The last three nights of your summer teen paradise are spent on the island of Oahu, at the amazing Hyatt Waikiki in Honolulu. Visit Pearl Harbor, enjoy the view from the top of Diamond Head and take a fun trip to the University of Hawaii. Professional Surfing lessons on our private beach will make the final day of our summer teen tour unforgettable!
You'll board our regularly scheduled jet for our flight home with your new teen tour friends and unbelievable memories of your summer teen tour adventure to the 49th and 50th states.
