Hiking tours



Hiking tours can be custom tailored to the needs of the group. A hike can be quiet and intentional, allowing time for reflection and meditation or maybe your energetic, aerobic activity for the day. Hikes can focus on the science and history of the ecology, flora, fauna and geology of the area, including edible and medicinal plants, Native cultures and traditions, seasonal migrations or earthquake features.  A hiking tour may also be a time to create Art in Nature. Danny offers classes in Plein-Air landscape Drawing and Painting, Botanical Illustration or Environmental Art using found objects from nature. The group could hike to one of the Santa Cruz Mountains renowned wineries and enjoy a picnic lunch. Integrating hiking with art, science and nature in a variety of ways to cater to your group or individual interests to share in the wonder, magic and beauty of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Danny offer’s a monthly Mindfulness Walking Meditation class for Stanford University’s Health Improvement Program.
