Most Inspirational Moment
I cannot give just one.
One was when we saw grizzly bears crossing the road when we were in Glacier park.
We saw a mother bear and her two cub. Mike our guide mad e sure we drove past at least four times so we could great really great views and photos.
The second one was when we had a good bye drink in front of the mountains to say goodbye , before we moved on to Couer D'Alene. third was when we saw bisson on the Flathead reserve. We got so close and could see their beautiful faces.
The third was a hike arranged at the last minute by our guide Mike Harding where we walked down to the Pendoreille lake where we had the most beautiful, peaceful and serene views
Thoughts on Group Leader
Our group leader, Mike Harding was fantastic. He kept our spirits high after the disappointing news that we would not be able to visit Yellowstone. He took us on some fantastic hikes, took us to great places to eat and shop and was always willing to give help and advice when asked. He provided us with fantastic breakfasts when we stayed in Glacier Park. He was so knowledgable and had a very clear and interesting way of explaining complex histories and cultures.
He had an obvious passion for showing people the best of nature in the parks and was able to make great connections with everyone in the group. I really felt that he put in 100% effort at all times.
Advice for Potential Travellers
Take a range of clothing for different weathers as you never know how the weather can change. You will literally need sun cream and sun hat on some days and a woolly hat and gloves on another.
Exodus trips are very well planned and the accommodation is in keeping with the nature of the trip. Also as I learned on this trip, they and their guides are very good about, adapting and changing when circumstances require it. Our guide was able to think creatively when dire circumstances changed our plans and be flexible enough to work with the weather and other conditions.
They are also very fair , providing extra activities when we lost out on Yellowstone plans and giving a discount to provide value for money based on the activities provided for us.
