Overview
More
At Unbeaten Path Tours we "Connect People to Place" and we do so by bringing our guests to specific points of interests they would otherwise miss if going it alone and we share with them aspects of the region that resonate with us, such as: history, geology, the marine ecology, birding, local flora, little known facts and more. Our guests not only gain knowledge and appreciation for the lands - they gain a respect for it, they care about it - and when you care about something you connect with it - and you never forget it! Owner & Guide, Margaret Lindgren, is also a certified instructor of Kundalini Yoga and offers private yoga & meditation sessions for private and corporate groups. See our website for specific details regarding this unique and symbiotic offering for an UNBEATEN experience. All tours are private unless otherwise noted. Tours and Yoga can be customized to meet specific needs for private groups, retreats and weddings. Make it unique: Make it UNBEATEN!
