The White Mountains of New Hampshire were once called the “Crystal Hills” by the early settlers due to their granite faces that reflected sunlight in the valley below. They have been drawing tourists since the mid-1800s when most visitors made the trip from cities by train or horse-drawn carriages. At that time, families came to the Whites to spend a month or more enjoying the fresh air, wonderful hiking and lofty vistas. This trip is designed to give you an overview of what is available and introduce you to the diversity of the Whites. Hiking is the most traditional sport in the area and with over 1,200 miles of trail to choose from, the options are endless. We'll also take advantage of favorite local activities: kayaking the Pemi and biking the (downhill) biking trail, visiting the Flume and exploring the historic Mount Washington Hotel.
