This eight-day excursion boasts historic sites, white-washed village homes, endless views of the ocean and quintessential Grecian locales. Also a three on REI’s difficulty level, this trek hosts groups of 4–16.


Camino de Santiago – Spain Hiking

While this tour name may be a mouthful, it’s actually pretty accessible for moderate hikers.

This stunning hike excursion showcases ancient trails to old-world cathedrals and rugged beauty. Group sizes range 4–14.

Products That Help You Sleep While Traveling

You've planned every last detail of your trip, from the perfect accommodations to tours to enjoy, but overlooked one crucial element: sleep. Travel and time changes throw off our circadian rhythms and lead to sleep loss. However, sleep deprivation can dull your response time, throw you into a depression, age your skin and pack on the pounds. It also just makes you irritable during much-deserved vacation time. Although you may not be able to restore your sleep to its full capacity on the road, you can get more rest with these products that help you sleep while traveling.

Safest Russian Cities

Russia is largely a safe city for tourists. Much of the country relies on tourism to bolster the economy, and local governments take great pains to ensure safety for foreign citizens. Crimes against locals and foreigners drastically reduced over the last decade. That’s not to say certain minorities shouldn’t take precaution, but the chance of getting accosted walking down the streets is pretty slim.
