north to alaska dinner

As soon as we returned from our last trip to Alaska, we were already thinking about making a return visit. It was so spectacular, and we had so much fun, that we're going back again next summer. And we'd love to talk to you about coming with us! That's why we're hosting a fabulous Alaska-themed dinner at Werkstatt in Brooklyn.

AC04-03763.jpg

Join us on a culinary journey to the Great Land! Huckleberry Travel has partnered with the popular (and delicious) Brooklyn restaurant, Werkstatt, for a special menu that celebrates the Last Frontier! Our special three-course meal will feature incredible dishes created by Chef Thomas Ferlesch, created from ingredients that you'd find on one of our authentic and immersive Alaska cruise itineraries. And we'll be on hand to talk to you about the group we're leading through the inside passage next summer!

AC00-00310.jpg

And, in case you want just a taste of what that's all about--we're inviting travelers from this past summer's Alaska journey with Huckleberry Travel. You can hear all about the calving glaciers, incredible wildlife, Gold Rush history and native cultures we experienced for ourselves. This is a chance to enjoy a bit of the real Alaska, without leaving Brooklyn!

Tickets are $50 per person, and space is extremely limited. So, if you'd like to have a delicious meal with a fun group of people who are excited about Alaska, reserve your spot today!

loire valley cycling trip
Aug

to Sep 1

loire valley cycling trip

IMG_5603.JPG

Each summer, the Tour de France races across the country, giving a select group of very talented cyclists a chance to see the country from a blurry perspective. But on our cycling tour of the Loire Valley, knowing the difference between a front derailleur and a rear dropout isn't necessary. Hop on a bike and experience ornate châteaux, rustic markets, vineyards, and rural Gallic charm. Think of this as the perfect combination of slow food, fine wines, and remote country tracks – ideal for seeing the inspiring scenery.

You know you want to do this, right? Of course you do! Riding from château to winery, to small quaint village, to vineyard.  Stopping for a picnic, or at a local market. It'll be great!

We're not camping--we stay in hotels. You don't need to bring your own bike from home (unless you really, really want to deal with that). Your luggage will be taken care of--it'll meet you at the next stop.  

Though the bike ride is described as challenging, the longest day of cycling is a smidge more than 37 miles.  There are a couple of 31 mile days, and the rest are much shorter rides. You can practically do that in your sleep, right? (We don't recommend sleeping while cycling -- you miss the scenery. Also, it's not safe.)

IMG_5595.JPG

Huckleberry Travel is hosting this trip in late August, 2018--the week before Labor Day in the US, in case you want us to build in a couple of extra days in  Paris.  It's operated by our preferred travel partner G Adventures--a company that specializes in authentic, responsible travel.

We know this is a bucket-list trip for a lot of people we're talking to, and space is extremely limited--no more than 12 people can do this with us. So check out our awesome flier for details or get in touch with us, today, if you want more information. Or, if those dates don't work for you, if you've got your own small group looking for a private trip like this, or you were hoping for something similar, only in, oh-let's-say, Spain? We can help with that too! Just let us know!

pelotonia 2018

to Aug 5

pelotonia 2018

There's nothing like thousands of riders getting on their bikes to change the world. This August, cyclists from around the country will arrive in Central Ohio to bike across the rolling countryside with one goal--to end cancer.

And Huckleberry Travel will be there! It'll be a great opportunity to train for our Loire Valley Cycling Trip, just a few weeks later, in fact!

Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: end cancer.  Pelotonia continues to be one of the largest cycling events in the country. Last year, Pelotonia raised more than $26 million. It was a one-year record and brought the nine-year Pelotonia total to an amazing $156.4 million. And every dollar funds state-of-the-art, life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

100% of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer.  By supporting Pelotonia, you can help improve lives through innovative research with the ultimate goal of ending cancer. This is truly a unique opportunity to be a part of something special.

If you'd like to join us, you can register online. Just choose one of the routes (anywhere from 25 miles to a 2-day 200 mile (!) ride), set a fundraising goal (you can always raise more than the minimum required), and drop us a line if you like us to book your travel! (Since you're riding for a worthy cause, we'll gladly waive any fees for making your booking through us!)

grownup spring break

grownup spring break

Just because you're not in school any longer, doesn't mean that you don't deserve to have Spring Break. Think about this...you've survived winter. Or at least you think you have. It's March, you're full of hope, and then suddenly... BAM! It's another snowstorm.

Fortunately, you thought ahead. You called Huckleberry Travel and booked their "Grownups Spring Break" cruise! Take a week off from "adulting" and let others do the work of your daily grind. On this six-night itinerary to Grand Cayman and Mexico, you can swim, spa, snorkel and explore, while someone else does the cooking for every single meal and makes your bed every single day.

Our trip leaves on March 11 from Ft. Lauderdale on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas, and returns on March 17. Royal Caribbean has been consistently rated as the top cruise line for Caribbean itineraries, and this particular sailing has special Huckleberry Travel pricing, as well as enhanced amenities. On this six-night itinerary, you'll leave Ft. Lauderdale, stop in Grand Cayman, as well as Costa Maya and Cozumel, both in Mexico. Couple that with a couple of days at sea for spa days, reading by the pool and day-drinking, and you'll get a much-needed dose of warm weather in early March.

Space is extremely limited (we don't do this for just anyone, you know...this is because you're special), so jump on board while you still can! We're packing in the amenities for clients of Huckleberry Travel, so let us know if you're into it!

Huckleberry Travel Anniversary Party

We did our formal launch a year ago, and what a year it's been! So far, we've sent (or are sending) travelers to nearly every continent (anyone wanna go to Antarctica?), and have planned everything from weekends in Vegas, to safaris in Botswana. We've sent folks to Italy, Iceland, and India. We've planned honeymoons to the Azores and destination weddings in Mexico. We've organized "behind the scenes" tours at Versailles, camel rides into the desert in Morocco and itineraries of wide open spaces in the American West.

But through all of that, we've never lost focus of what made us start this business. We know that travel has the power to transform and that by helping people explore the world we live in, we're part of positive change in the lives of our clients, and in the world, as a whole.

We're grateful for your support, and we're excited to celebrate our first year in business with you. Please join us at Hinterlands Bar in Brooklyn on March 10, 2018. We'll have drinks and fun and lots of stories about exciting travels. Stop by and join the celebration!

We've got special rates on rooms up and down the strip, but through our travel partners, we've secured a discount on 1- and 2-bedroom suites in the Center Strip, so you can feel like a high roller, even if you're not gambling at all! 

Our discounts and promotions will only last as long as the rooms do. But join us in Vegas! We'd love to see you there!

This December, Huckleberry Travel will set sail on a once-in-a-lifetime trip through the Panama Canal, and YOU can join us! There's no better way to see this bucket-list destination than with the #1 cruise line sailing the region. We'll be able to experience this marvel of engineering first-hand, on the Island Princess--a purpose-built ship specially-designed to sail the Panama Canal!

We'll depart Ft. Lauderdale, and stop in Aruba and Cartagena, Colombia, before traversing the Canal. Then, once we're on the Pacific Coast of Central America, we'll stop in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and twice in Mexico, before finishing our trip in Los Angeles!

Princess truly knows this region. They've crafted our itinerary so that we can experience the best beaches of the Caribbean, the lush rainforests of Central America, and the many diverse cultures of the region, including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Cartagena.

There are still great cabins available if you're inclined to join us. Email us before this trip sells out. We're going to have a blast!

Join Huckleberry Travel for a fun Cuban Pig Roast--in Brooklyn! We'll be barbecuing a whole suckling pig at our favorite neighborhood bar, Hinterlands, while we highlight some of our incredible, authentic adventure travel itineraries to Cuba.

All proceeds from this event will go to support Huckleberry Travel's participation in Pelotonia--an annual bike ride to raise money to end cancer. 100% of the money we raise will go directly to fund life-saving cancer research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. A donation of $25 or more to our ride will get you a plate of food, at the event, but if you'd like to donate in advance, you can do so by clicking here, or here.

We've set the time for the event to begin at 4 p.m., based on when we think the pig is likely to be ready. Keep in mind, though, that Hinterlands opens at 1 p.m., and we'll be hanging out and roasting the pig for most of the afternoon. If you want to keep us company and have a few mojitos, come as early as you like!
