EXPERIENCE IT ALL, IN STYLEJoin one of the world’s best walking guides on amazing
off-the-beaten-path adventures.

Award-winning, super fun, small group, expertly guided, fantastic food, awesome hotels, amazing and authentic experiences away from the crowds, customized to you, with incredible walks and hikes for all levels – with NO deposit or payments needed until 60 days before the trip departs.

On our tours, you’ll stay in really nice and unique hotels and do day hikes – no camping, dorms, or crowded huts. You will not need to carry anything beyond a very light daypack, you’ll only need light walking/hiking shoes, and you’ll enjoy great meals (no need for trail mix) and be able to relax in our hand-picked accommodations

Travel these days has become crazy with huge numbers of people ruining most “popular” places – so I specialize in getting away from all that by knowing exactly where to go, and when to go there – which is equally important. I invite you to check out my Five-Star Trip Advisor rated and award-winning walking & active tours to Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Lake Garda and the Dolomites of Northern Italy. I also take guests on active road trips to New Zealand and my native Australia – which are a blast!

“If you have been looking for an active and highly personalized walking holiday that is expertly organized, stress-free and fun then you have found the right place. After guiding over 250 international adventure travel trips over 38 years (with a perfect safety record), I still believe in keeping the fun in adventure travel. I realized long ago that I have a knack for finding cool “off-the-beaten-path” places and for knowing what people like to see and do.

I started Right Path Adventures with the goal of sharing the amazing places I had discovered in a fun, active, authentic, and stress-free travel experience. I love mountain scenery, being around nature, and to take the back roads, away from the regular tourist routes. I love to experience a place as the locals do and to have a more authentic experience versus just seeing the sights. My trips to Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Lake Garda and the Dolomites of northern Italy are focused on walking and other active and fun pursuits, and of course, include fabulous local and regional food and incredible and unique accommodations you will love. And all of my trips and tour dates can be modified to your time frame, preferences, and budget – so let’s talk about it!!”

Our favorite places

Find Your Right Path


The Dolomites of Northern Italy

I have been traveling the world for over 50 years and been a professional mountaineer and a travel guide for 35+ years and I have found an unspoiled Shangri La – the Dolomites of northern Italy – a Disneyland for people who enjoy walking and being among beautiful mountains but who also appreciate nice hotels, great food, history, culture, friendly people and world-renowned hospitality. Recently honored with UNESCO World Heritage Nature Site status, walking the magnificent trails of the Dolomites is by far the best way to experience and appreciate this incredible area.
