Budget Lodging Tours

Our BLT (Budget Lodging Tours) are designed for those of you who want a comfortable bed and a roof over your head for every night of your tour.

You'll stay in a whole range of accommodation from motels to hotels, hostels to cabins, and maybe even a lodge or even a ranch along the way. Wherever you stay you can be sure there will be all the modern conveniences waiting for you at the end of the day.

  • Location, location, location

    Sometimes we will stay at inexpensive hotels or motels chosen for their prime location or good facilities and other times we will be staying in more 'rustic' cabins or hostels. Sometimes you'll stay in something totally different such as a Navajo Hogan or on a ranch offering a unique local experience. Wherever you're staying, one thing is the same all you have to do is drop your bags and you're off to explore!

  • Clean and comfortable

    Clean, comfortable, and value for money is our ethos. We want you to feel at home wherever you are, and not pay over the odds for it. After a day's adventure you'll be heading back to the hotel, motel, cabin or hostel to freshen up before heading out to explore, hitting the town or having for a bite to eat or drink with the locals. Then after a cosy night's sleep, you're off again, rested and ready for your next big day of fun.

  • Twin and multi share rooms

    Rooms on lodging trips will be a mix of twin share and private multi-share (average of 4-6 per room). Hostel rooms are normally single sex on a multi-share basis. A sleeping bag is not required for BLT tours, except on the Southern BLT, Northern BLT and Grand BLT where you will need this for some of the cabin/hostel stays. Where we stay in multi share accommodation we'll try to keep the group together when we can, but this may not always be possible. We try to accommodate couples, but this cannot be always be guaranteed.

  • Eating the local way

    There's no Food Kitty on a lodging trip, we'll eat in café's, diners and restaurants each paying our own way locally. This is a great way to way to sample and enjoy some of the local specialities - Creole food, all-American burgers, fresh lobster or spicy hot Mexican! Your Tour Leader may suggest an optional breakfast or lunch kitty to keep costs down, which has proven to be a popular alternative to eating out three meals a day.
