Adventure travel above the clouds

An adventure tour through the Blue Ridge Parkway

If you are looking for a budget adventure vacation in one of the most beautiful places on our planet, look no further. This world has very few places as beautiful as the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia.

OK I said it. I would put the Blue Ridge right up there with any other beautiful place you could care to mention. The parkway stretches from the Smokey Mountains to the Shenandoah and includes the tallest mountains east of the Rockies. Which makes it the ideal place for an adventure vacation.

So it came as no surprise to discover that the folks at are hosting a an adventure tour called, Blue Ridge Parkway Bicycle Tour on their site.

Check out for info on a 469 mile adventure tour that will take you WELL off the beaten path to a place where you will see breathtaking waterfalls, black bears, Civil War battlefields and some of the most awesome mountain vistas the United States has to offer.

And by the way, you might want to prepare by getting in shape before you go, because you will cycle as high as 48000 feet. On the other hand, you will spend your nights in comfortable inns and enjoy the kind of home cooking only found in those mountain regions.

So who said budget adventure travel has to be a hardship?
