SEATTLE, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading adventure travel company, REI Adventures, announces their first iteration of new trips for 2015, with several adventures beginning in late 2014. The new line-up features trending hot spots and hidden gems, including Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way and several African destinations on the New York Times' "52 places to go in 2014" list: Cape Town, South Africa; Laikipia Plateau in Kenya; and Namibia.
Coastal Cycling in Ireland
REI Adventures mapped a dream trip through diverse landscapes, isolated castles and vibrant local culture. Cyclists travel through the dramatic rocky terrain of Burren, old-world culture of the Aran Islands, and mountains of Connemara. They will also enjoy unique aspects of local culture, including quintessential Irish "craic," music, tea at the house made famous by the sitcom "Father Ted" and tall pints of Guinness.
Virgin Islands Volunteer Vacation
U.S. Virgin Islands National Park provides a beautiful backdrop for those looking to give back through "sweat equity" to preserve natural spaces. In partnership with Conservation Volunteers International Program, travelers work alongside National Park Service rangers on critical conservation and maintenance projects to stabilize important sites and maintain high traffic trails. With departures starting in 2014, the itinerary balances 10 rewarding days of volunteer work with two days of well-deserved relaxation.
As a leading tour operator in Africa, REI Adventures continues to pioneer travel on the continent with the addition of four innovative new trips to explore its diverse countries. The adventures involve immersion with local tribes, active safaris (on foot and in the ocean), untracked routes, unforgettable wildlife viewing, and family specific voyages.
REI Adventures will announce the second phase of new trips for 2015 in October. For more information about REI's trips, visit www.rei.com/adventures or call (800) 622-2236.
