North Georgia Highlands
North Georgia Highlands &
Tuesday, June 29 - Friday, July 2, 2021
It is time to escape to the mountains! We will get well off the beaten path as we head into the mountains and waters of remote western NC and the highlands of North Georgia. After pickup at your door we will head west to gorgeous Fontana Lake for a guided tour by boat then up to the heights of Snowbird Mountain Lodge for lunch and some entertainment from a local singer and storyteller. Then it’s on to our lodging at the Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa in the heart of the north Georgia mountains.
Day 2 will feature guided tours and leisurely visits to Alpine Helen, the former gold rush center Dahlonega and the incredible Folk Pottery Museum. The beautiful byways and backroads we will take in between these stops would by themselves be worth the day, especially from the comfort of our first class transportation.
Day 3 will feature a new Globe Treks adventure as we hop into Premier Class seating on the Blue Ridge Scenic Rail and enjoy a one hour scenic ride along the Toccoa River to Copperhill, TN. After some leisure time we will head to the famous John C. Campbell Folk School where we will enjoy a private tour of this special place and enjoy some entertainment as well.
Our final day will bring a leisurely check out and a stop in Highlands, NC for lunch and sightseeing, then home to your front door via the Globe Treks private car service!
