Adventure Travel

What We Do
AMC Adventure Travel facilitates domestic and international trips throughout the year. Experienced volunteer leaders create, plan, and lead each excursion, fostering a dynamic and active group environment. Though each trip is unique, all of them strive to fulfill the AMC's mission of promoting stewardship and appreciation of the natural world.
