October 4, 2014

Killington, Vt – Appalachian Trail Adventures announces its affordable vacations include guided hiking and kayaking adventures, excursions to local attractions and villages, breakfast, lunch, dinner and accommodations starting at a low rate of $220.00 per night, per person.

Appalachian Trail Adventures (ATA) provides an affordable guided hiking and kayaking vacation in the Green Mountain National Forest for all abilities. ATA is excited that the fall foliage hiking season is around the corner and reservations for prime foliage in October are filling up. Watch Vermont’s Green Mountains transform as Mother Nature works her artistry coloring the mountainsides with brilliant oranges, reds and yellows mixed between the evergreen trees. ATA recommends a visit between September 22nd and October 13th for those leaf peepers seeking to experience the fall foliage at its peak color.

The days are getting shorter and the leaves are starting to turn. The weather is mild and pleasant, fall is around the corner! Some people may hang their boots up until spring, but some of the best hiking of the year is waiting. There is more wildlife to see, including migrating birds. Fewer hikers on the trail, no insects and the cool air makes an easier time on the trail.  Don’t wait until the last minute to book, we already have a fair amount of hikers scheduled.

ATA’s hikers stay at the Summit Lodge, which is known for its personalized service and two Saint Bernard mascots. Situated on eleven acres, the lodge offers all the cozy, traditional pleasures of a Vermont country inn, along with air-conditioned rooms and a spa for those guests who are looking for massage therapy.

Appalachian Trail Adventures hiking vacations include daily transportation, guided hiking, caving and kayaking adventures, excursions, breakfast, lunch, dinner and accommodations starting at $220.00 per night, per person. Daily a la carte options are available including massage, yoga, and tennis.

ôItÆs the best time of the year to go hiking, no bugs, cool temperatures and spectacular foliage colors. Vermont is well known for its fall colors, the changing leaves provide beautiful views along the hikes, kayaking adventures and drives. Our programs offer affordably priced fall foliage packages for hikers who want to take advantage of everything this time of year has to offer. There is a program to suit just about everyone, from the single traveler, first time to experienced hiker, seniors, vegetarians, to couples,” states John Keough, Founder of ATA.

The Foundry Restaurant’s Executive Chef Sean Miller has created a delicious spa menu for ATA hikers who are seeking healthier meals. The menu is able to cater to special dietary restrictions such as vegan, low sugar, sodium-, wheat- and dairy-free options.
