Day 1

Journey today to a place where stunning and diverse wilderness meets endless adventure and hospitality - New York’s Adirondack Mountains. In Lake Placid visit the Olympic Jumping Complex and take an elevator to the observation deck. At the top enjoy panoramic views of the Adirondack Mountains as well as taking in a bird’s eye view of what jumpers see as they start their descent. Our cozy accommodations will be at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel Lake Placid.

Day 2

We’ll begin our day full of discovery by visiting Saranac Lake - a town regarded as one of the prettiest in America. Enjoy a narrated luncheon cruise on the pristine waters of Raquette Lake and see sprawling wilderness retreats which became known as the "Great Camps of the Gilded Age". Each camp had many buildings typically including libraries, game rooms, blacksmith shops, carriage houses, guest & servants’ quarters, dining rooms and more. These impressive estates included features that reflected their rustic natural surroundings while also providing the ultimate in luxury for wealthy families looking to escape the cities. This is a style that continues to be imitated today, especially in most every major lodge built by the National Park Service. Later, visit the Great Camp Sagamore, now an iconic National Historic Landmark, and get a glimpse of the opulence of the past. With its own state of the art hydroelectric complex, telephone system and bowling alley, this estate, once owned by the Vanderbilts, sure had its share of famous houseguests!

Later depart for home after three great days of exploring some of New York’s natural treasures.
