Appalachian Trail Adventures Announces a New Hiking Vacation Catering to Individual Military Personnel and Their Family

Killington, VT (PRWEB) March 30, 2010 -- Vermont is known as one of the most friendly and beautiful vacation destinations in New England. Appalachian Trail Adventures (ATA) is a unique hiking spa targeting hikers and nature lovers for all abilities providing a combination of outdoor activities with spa pampering. The country ambiance of the inn, the friendly staff will treat guests like friends and the scrumptious cuisine will make this a unique vacation.

Especially when back from deployment, military family vacations are critical, a time when the family can relax, reunite and have adventures. But it can be expensive to travel as a family, and military families in particular find it difficult to afford a good vacation.

ATA knows travelers are just as concerned about their pocketbook while deciding travel plans. That's why ATA has a new affordable outdoor adventure vacation offering military personnel and their dependents a discount of $15.00 credit per person per night anytime during 2010 season.

ATA's Hiking Program starts at $168.00 per night, per person, including taxes and gratuities, we provide guided hikes, caving and kayaking, excursions, snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner and accommodations. Massages, water aerobics, yoga class, tennis lessons, cooking demonstration and nutrition consultations with our Registered Dietitians are available à la carte.

"ATA's guests are hikers who do not feel comfortable hitting the trails alone. But a few adventurists enjoy traveling solo therefore our group atmosphere is a perfect match. ATA itineraries are diverse vacations for single travelers, couples, families, military personnel, women, young professionals, seniors and students. We are perfect destination for people with special dietary restrictions, those seeking a location for a family, friend, school reunion or corporate retreat."
