    If Mammoth Mountain is not enough, June Mountain Ski Area is 30 minutes to the north of Mammoth and is accessible via a complimentary shuttle that runs each day from the Village.  Our lodge provides a free shuttle to the village to make this connection.  Also available is the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center, Snowmobile Adventures through the Eastern Sierra backcountry, and luxurious Snowcat Tours with sweeping mountain views, providing plenty to do for all types of winter vacationers.

    OVERVIEW:

    First, you may be asking:  Where are the Baltic States?  The Baltic States are in the northeastern region of Europe on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea.  They include Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.  Second, you may then ask:  Do I want to visit the Baltic States?  Easy answer…Yes.

    The Baltic States have a complex history and individual culture.  Each country has been influenced by Scandinavians, Germans, Poles and Russians.  To round out our tour, we are starting in Helsinki and will continue into Poland.

    The Baltic countries have a turbulent history but have embraced the modern world moving forward. The medieval castles, old town streets, cobbled stone squares, and church spires have all been spruced up.  In juxtaposition, Tallinn was dubbed ‘party capital of the year’ by the New York Times, Vilnius erected a statue of Frank Zappa and a tradition in Riga is to bungee jump naked! 

    Whether you come for the history, architecture, food or culture, these 5 countries will give you insight to hidden treasures of Europe.  Let’s expand our travels to these lesser known yet extraordinary destinations!  Join us as we start in the sexy city of Helsinki and work our way south visiting highlights of the Baltic States before heading into Poland to Warsaw & Krakow to complete our tour.

      Day 2 (Sun): Schwemlingen - Saarburg. Bike tour approx. 32 km

      Your first bike tour takes you through the wonderful Saarland region. More than any other region, it symbolizes the "rendezvous in Saarland", a junction of water and land. From Schwemlingen it’s about 5 km to the excellent viewpoint over the landscape and the Saar loop at the “Cloef” above and inviting you for a short stay. From here you will bike further on to Saarburg, passing the village Mettlach, well known for the Villeroy & Boch products. In Saarburg you can visit one of the museums. After dinner there is more time for a stroll through the city and to enjoy a splendid view over the Saar valley. In the charming city itself you’ll be impressed by the narrow alleys, framework houses, baroque constructions and colourful fishermen and sailor houses. Overnight stay in Saarburg.

      Day 3 (Mon): Saarburg - Trier. Bike tour approx. 20 km

      Today’s bike tour will take you to Trier by following the river Saar river ‘downstream’. At Konz the Saar meets the Moselle river.

      Day 4 (Tue): Trier – Wasserbillig - Remich. Bike tour approx. 34 km

      During breakfast we will cruise, Merlijn takes you to Wasserbillig just after the border German-Luxembourg. Luxembourg is a small country, but the capital, also called Luxembourg, is an important finance centre for Europe. Your bike tour starts from Wasserbillig and you will cycle along the meandering Moselle. On the way to Remich you visit a wine cellar to taste the wines from the upper Mosel. The wines here are different than the middle Mosel styles. When the geology changes, so do the wines. Tonight you have the possibility to try the local cuisine, because you will be eating out.

      Day 5 (Wed): Remich – Thionville - Metz. Bike tour approx. 35 km or extend to 44 km

      After another delicious breakfast onboard you will get on the pedals again. Soon you will pass by a town called Schengen. Here the ‘Schengen agreement” was signed by 5 countries in 1985, everyone in Europa has heard of this agreement because it lead to free passage of borders. From here you will cycle into France, first stop: the fortress of Sierck-les-bains. One of the palaces inhabited by the powerful Dukes of Lorraine. Further the tour will lead you through French countryside, riparian landscapes, wheat fields and tiny villages. You will reach Thionville, once the centre of the steel industry, modern & industrial, now an ancient city. The historic centre shows us the medieval ramparts, lovely gardens, old streets and St.Maximin basilica which houses one of the finest organs in the world.

      Day 6 (Thu): Metz – Pont-à-Mousson. Bike tour approx. 35 km

      Today you will ride through the French countryside again, the precise route will be adjusted to the bicycle level of the group. Mostly flat terrain following the Moselle or a more challenging route across the hills. Any route will end in the calm and serene town Pont-à-Mousson where Merlijn will await you. Around the world, pipes and manhole covers, carry the stamp of the town’s steel production. But Pont-à-Mousson was also home to a Jesuit university known throughout Europe, which explains the town’s incredible architectural heritage.

      Day 7 (Fri): Pont-à-Mousson – Nancy - Frouard. Bike tour approx. 47 km

      Your last bicycle tour will lead you to Nancy. The old city centre’s heritage dates from the Middle Ages to the 18th-century.

      Bonaire Island Adventure

      with Scuba and Snorkeling


      Scuba Diver: $2,195  and  Non-diver: $1,875  (Cash)

      This trip has been postponed into December 2021

      New travel dates will be determined later as international air and lodging pricing becomes available

       

      Overview:

      Nature is the chief attraction of Bonaire. It is widely recognized as one of the world's best spots for snorkeling and scuba diving because of its clear waters and the fact that the reef is easily accessible from shore. A large portion of the island's land mass is a legally protected national park. Approximately 111 square miles in size and 50 miles off the coast of South America, Bonaire is essentially a coral reef rising above the water. Its northern part has some hills but is mostly desert like. The flat southern half barely rises above sea level. Bonaire has some famous beaches including one known for its world class windsurfing.

      Bonaire prides itself on its reputation for world class snorkeling and scuba diving. The island has a fringing reef that extends out in places 200 feet before dropping off into the deep-blue Caribbean Sea. As a result, divers and snorkelers can often walk into the water from shore and find an environment rich in sea life. Most of the waters around the island are within the Bonaire Marine Park and are legally protected. There are 80+ designated dive sites within the park. Yellow painted stones with the name of the site mark their location along the coastal roads.

      Bonaire is part of the Netherlands. As a result, residents of Bonaire enjoy the same rights as Dutch citizens living in Europe. The island's government is similar to other Dutch municipalities. Although Bonaire is part of the Netherlands, the official currency is not the Euro but rather the U.S. Dollar. This reflects the island's economic ties to the United States. US and Canadian citizens do not need a visa to visit Bonaire. A valid passport is required, and the expiration date should be at least 6 months beyond your stay.

      Buddy Dive Resort is a full-service dive resort. Including: 73 apartments, more than 100 rental cars, two ocean-view restaurants and a bar area to enjoy the sunsets and company of your fellow SCSTC travelers. Their dive operation is a PADI 5-star Career Development Center with 6 dive boats, a large range of diving options, courses, kids’ programs and the largest technical diving facility of the Caribbean.

      For this trip, your club has reserved 2-bedroom apartments with either an ocean or garden view. Each apartment has a compact kitchen, spacious living area with cable TV, a patio or balcony, air-conditioned bedrooms each with its own bathroom and shower.  On Bonaire the power plugs and sockets are of type A, B and F so you will need adapters for US cords. The standard voltage is 220 V.

      Our SCSTC vacation includes one 4-passenger rental vehicle with each 2-bedroom apartment we book. You will need a valid drivers license, purchase their local rental insurance ($140 per week) and fill the fuel tank when you are done with the vehicle ($60 for a full tank). This rental program allows you to enjoy the wonders and incredible nature of this unspoiled island. These vehicles allow you to easily explore the designated shore dive and snorkel locations around the island.
