Cultural Tour of Alaska

A cultural tour of Alaska is filled with a rich collage of landscape, history, culture, wildlife, art, Indigenous culture, and more. Travel to Alaska can change a person’s life forever because the memory of the wildlife and the beauty can restore a person’s soul. There are very few places where one can experience the fullness of a place so wild and so beautiful. A cultural tour of Alaska can be directed at seeing the wildlife, or the artwork of the Tlingit, an Indigenous tribe which have a rich tradition of beliefs and beautiful textiles. The Tlingit create ceremonial textiles called “dancing robes” which are intricately woven with long fringes that dance during the movement in ceremony.

Mountainous Cultural Tour on a Bike

Cultural tours can be anything from riding on a barge to seeing the countryside on a bicycle. I can remember traveling to Nepal and looking out of the window of the airplane to see the Himalayas on the same level as the plane. The mountains are so awesome, they take your breath away. Another way to take your breath away, is to plan a mountainous cultural tour on a bicycle. I’m not talking about up hill travel all the way. Rather, you can tour the areas around Kathmandu, Nepal with a guide and a bike, and accommodations a food. The colors, beauty, and the quiet that a bike offers, can add a new dimension to your cultural tour of Nepal.

The Wonders of Southern Nepal tour is for cyclists seeking a leisurely ride through rural Nepal while exploring the natural wonders of Chitwan and the religious heritage of Buddhism and Hinduism. The tour starts in Kathmandu and heads out of the valley and down to the tropical lowlands where the fertile rice fields are still attended to using traditional farming methods.
