7 Tiny House Base Camp
Just minutes from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Fireside Resort capitalizes on the tiny house craze and the classic appeal of rustic cottages by offering 25 pint-size, luxuriously outfitted tiny house rental units designed by Wheelhaus. The resort is located a stone’s throw from Grand Teton National Park and the Jackson Hole ski slopes. It is a great place to post up for a ski trip or a summer getaway.
6 Antarctica Eclipse
An awe-inspiring expedition cruise to see the ice and wildlife of Antarctica always requires advance planning, and 2021 offers a truly rare experience when a solar eclipse will plunge part of the Southern Ocean into darkness. Adventure Life is booking a selection of ships that will position themselves in the path of totality for the Dec. 4 event.Website
Soaring red stone spires and ancient citadels of rich Navajo sandstone give way to haunting hoodoos and curving arches of rock — a geologist’s dream and a mountain biker’s paradise. Escape Adventures offer tours of rides through the swift lines that wind and bend through Zion Mountain, only to spill out onto yawning mesas and buttes. The world famous trails of Red Canyon’s Thunder Mountain, Cassidy and Casto Canyon, symbolize but a few of this tour’s many highlights in Utah.Website
