The Forgotten Gem

By Kevin R. Tam, President

Half of the fun of traveling is discovering the places you think no one else knows about and then coming back with fascinating stories of your adventures. Usually, the places you think no one else knows about might consist of a secluded path along the edge of a lake, an off-the-beaten-track huckleberry pie café or a hidden mountain stream. Usually when we think of things that are hidden, we think of things that are small. But sometimes we need to think big. Very big. In fact, very, very big.

The Empire Builder In Style

March 23, 2017
By Kevin R. Tam, President

Here at Uncommon Journeys, we believe that luxury train travel does more than just connect two points on map, we believe it spans time and by boarding a train, you are immersing yourself in a cocoon that blocks out today’s world and can take you to a place that those who don’t travel by rail can never understand. The Empire Builder is one such train.

Glacier National Park

By Kevin R. Tam, President

I’m a lover of trains, steamboats, ocean liners and National Parks, so I have to admit that I probably am better versed on these topics than more casual aficionados. Even so, I’m always a bit surprised that Glacier National Park, one of America’s true jewels, doesn’t get more attention than it does or generate more advance excitement among travelers.

Winter In The Grand Canyon

February 28, 2017
By Kevin R. Tam, President

At Uncommon Journeys, we appreciate the road less traveled. That’s why our 8-day New Year’s at the Grand Canyon departing December 29, 2016 was one of our favorite trips. We offer it every year and are currently working on the 2017 version. You can join us on a special New Year’s holiday that features one of the most stunning places in all North America to welcome the New Year, the magnificent Grand Canyon, in all its pristine winter glory, without crowds and with brilliant sunlit days. There is a supreme serenity to the canyon in winter.  It is wonderfully quiet. And if you’re lucky enough to be there after a light snowfall, the beauty is awe-inspiring. Listen for a hawk. Gaze at millennia of erosion in the canyon walls. Admire the resilient wildlife. To really live is to see the Grand Canyon in the winter. As a preview, here is a photo tour that shows you why winter is the season that brings out the very best in this classic national park. Give us a call and we’ll put you on the advance waiting list for our 2017 trip!
