About Us

Our Model

We organize trips to some of the most scenic, historic, and fun locations in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. Active Excursions participants have hiked the Appalachian Trail, seen the Chesapeake Bay up close, explored Shenandoah National Park, and experienced local organic wineries. Following each activity, participants dine at some of the best restaurants in the area that promote healthy eating, showcase local produce, and operate according to environmentally responsible principles. Our excursions also feature talks by experts in areas such as health and wellness, green living,and environmental initiatives.

Our Goals

Our trips are designed to clear your mind, recharge your batteries, and connect you to nature. To that end, Active Excursions places a high value on careful planning to ensure our participants:

  • Experience the best sights our destinations have to offer
  • Enjoy a healthy and delicious dining experience at top local eateries
  • Learn from professional guides and speakers
