Austin-Lehman Adventures has announced that 21 new itineraries both domestic and foreign will bring its 2013 roster of trips to over 80 scheduled programs on five continents, with pricing on 72 percent either held at 2012 levels or lowered.
Founder Dan Austin said the company’s overall health and strength and an improving economy have allowed it to maintain prices on 46 percent of its trips and drop prices on 26 percent of its itineraries.
Even on those trips that saw a modest rise in price Austin noted that the increase averaged just less than 5 percent.
The results include a new cycling tour in Holland running from $300 to $600 per person less than comparable trips from other companies; an improved itinerary with a price drop on their Bryce and Zion Adventure in Utah; and through partnerships in Southern Africa, four new scheduled wildlife safaris in Namibia and Botswana starting at just $3,498 per person.
The new-for-2013 itineraries include expedition cruising in Alaska and the Antarctic; wellness spa, yoga and retreat packages in Utah and Chiapas, Mexico; cycling trips in Arizona, the Dordogne region of France and Holland; expansion of Africa programs in Namibia, Botswana and Tanzania; and creation of new multisport adventures to Oregon’s Crater Lake National Park, Nicaragua, Ireland, Scotland and Turkey.
New family adventure itineraries are being launched in Normandy, France and Oregon’s Crater Lake; and online visitors will see an expansion of website-only listed trips to Croatia, Whistler BC, Slovenia and Cuba.
