Country Walkers VT.jpg Based in ''rustic'' offices in Waterbury, Vermont, Country Walkers offers walking itineraries around the world, but they don't ignore New England. In 2011, five guided excursions are scheduled in Acadia National Park along with two guided fall foliage season outings in Vermont. You can purchase a gift certificate in any amount for a specific trip or let the recipient choose his or her own dream destination in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, the South Pacific, or Latin America. If your friends and family members are independent types who steer clear of guided tours, Country Walkers has introduced self-guided hiking and bicycling adventures in England, Spain, Italy, Malta, Austria, Portugal, France, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Gift certificates, by the way, come in a beautifully wrapped gift box. And Country Walkers does not cancel its departure dates if enrollment is low, sparing the giftee from potential disappointment down the road.
