July 2014:  Wintergreen director Paul Schurke and senior guide Dave Freeman have returned from Brazil after retracing Pres. Theodore Roosevelt's 1914 pioneering canoe trek down the Amazon's mythical "River of Doubt." Click here


I'm at a loss of words to express how delighted we were with our Wintergreen experience. Our family agreed it was one of the most wonderful things we've ever done. Everyone loved it and can't wait to return. It was perfect. It gave our kids such confidence and a great feeling of accomplishment. No other family vacation option compares with the Wintergreen experience -- it is so much better than sightseeing or touring!
