An Escape Adventure trip represents a superb way to enjoy the company of other active travelers, the camaraderie of shared interests. Travel Solo or with a friend… or two. One of the defining characteristics our trips is their small group composition. For over 25-years, Escape Adventures has been taking outdoor enthusiasts beyond the “average” vacation, into the exciting world of small-group adventure travel. Our Guide to Guest ratio is the best in the industry, averaging 1 guide for every 5 guests. Our smaller groups, ranging from 6 to 13 guests, allow for flexible schedules, individualized service, comfort, if not a deeper, more expansive backcountry adventure. Don’t be surprised if you come away from your tour with a whole group of new and awesome friends!
Mountain biking provides a unique and exciting way to experience the outdoors. Our Mountain Bike Tours are designed to accommodate riders from a variety of backgrounds. Some tours are intended specifically for more experienced riders, while many are suitable for those with little or no mountain biking experience. Each trip is rated for its technical and fitness level, and found in our individual trip itineraries. On select trips, we now have the option to use e-Mountain bikes for those who need an electric boost!

Are you interested in mountains and coastlines, culture or solitude? The first step in picking a road cycling tour is choosing your ideal destination. You can be assured that we have chosen the best riding on the most scenic roads in the country.
Our road tours are rated by the mileage and overall fitness level needed to complete the rides. The rating is based on an average of each day’s climbs, elevation bases, and ride lengths. For example, one trip with longer rides followed by a rest day may be rated the same as a trip with shorter daily rides and no rest days. We understand that mileage is a concern, so if you enjoy an easier pace and prefer scenery to speed, a trip with less than 250 miles is a great choice. If you enjoy a good century every now and then, look forward to the climbs, and love a good workout, then a trip with more than 250 miles is your best choice.
You may notice that some tours list a range of miles (ie. 200-250). On these trips we offer optional rides that can increase the overall distance of the trip. Regardless of mileage and hills, each tour is supported by our professional and attentive guides riding with the group and driving the support vehicle. On select trips, we now have the option to use e-bikes as well.
