Redwood Parks Lodge Company Launches Redwood Adventures Tours

September 01, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
As a continuation of its plans to develop an extensive range of lodging and travel services in the California Redwood National and State Parks, Redwood Parks Lodge Company, Inc. today announced the launch of its guided tour company, Redwood Adventures Tours.

One of the few companies granted a Tour Services permit to conduct guided tours within the Redwood National and State Parks, Redwood Adventures Tours will provide a range of tour packages designed to cater to the different interests and needs of visitors to the parks.

Redwood National Park was formed in 1968, and in 1994, the National Park Service (NPS) and the California Department of Parks and Recreation entered a cooperative agreement to manage Redwood National Park and three California State Parks (Jedediah Smith Redwoods, Prairie Creek Redwoods and Del Norte Coast Redwoods) as a single unit renamed as Redwood National and State Parks (Redwood Parks).

Redwood Adventures Tours has been given permission to offer five different tour packages within Redwood National and State Parks. These tours range from a one-hour “Orientation Tour” designed to inform visitors on the “who, what, where, why and how ” of the parks to a six-hour comprehensive and flexible “Full Day Tour” designed to provide an intimate look at the unique sites found in the four separate parks within Redwood National and State Parks.

“Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Redwood National and State Parks or someone who visits the area regularly, taking a guided tour is a great way to relish the amazing beauties and features of the parks,” said John “Johnny Redwood” Russavage, chairman and CEO of Redwood Parks Lodge Company. “Our certified tour guides are true park lovers who know Redwood National and State Parks inside out, and they will help make anyone’s visit to the park a real treat.”

Tour packages range in price from $18 per family or group for the Orientation Tour to $135 per person for the Full Day Tour. Each tour is hosted by a certified Adventure Guide and participants receive an orientation packet for each tour. On the longer tours, a snack, picnic lunch and an interpretive learning packet are also provided.

In celebration of the launch of Redwood Adventures Tours, the company is offering a two-for-one (2-for-1) special on its per person pricing. Each group of two will be charged the price of one person, regardless of the number of people in a family or related group. Special rates are also available for larger groups or tours.

Redwood Adventures Tours is located off Highway 101 at milepost 124 near Orick in Humboldt County, California on Valley Green Camp Road, approximately halfway between Portland, Oregon and San Francisco, California. The tour office is right next to Redwood National and State Parks’ Elk Meadow recreation area in the Redwood Adventures Village.
