Summertime in the North West is breathtaking and unpredictable. But we do not let the weather deter our Bergies from having fun. Our outdoor activities are now in full swing and we go to many areas to enjoy them.
Our summertime outdoor activities include hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, walking, paddling (both kayak and canoe), motorcycling, water skiing, mountain climbing, rafting, sailing and sail boarding events. We also have what we call ?Adventure? trips where we may do all of the above activities in various parts of the US and sometimes in foreign countries. One of our recent adventure trips was the Stehekin and Methow Valley Bike Hike Paddle. It starts with 3 nights in Stehekin Valley with hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding or rafting. Then everyone takes the Lady Express to Chelan then drives to Winthrop in the heart of Methow Valley. There are mountain bike, raft the Methow River, road bike rides, or hikes in nearby North Cascades National Park. There were other options also like a balloon ride through Methow Valley or part of the balloon chasing crew and take part in the traditional champagne brunch.
So, what ever your desires are, come and check us out (and the 700-800 events we hold each year) and see why we are the happiest snow and other activities group around.
