9-Nights The Hudson Valley-Ken Burns American Journeys

The Hudson Valley

Stories by Ken Burns – Like the luminous landscapes of 19th century artists like Thomas Cole and Asher Durand, the Hudson River has the power to enthrall with its deep forests, plunging waterfalls, wandering tributaries, cliffs and rugged mountain vistas… not to mention the cultural currents, castles, vineyards and fabulous estates that follow its wandering path down from Canada to the sea. Enjoy exclusive filmed vignettes by filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan that share personal stories and take you behind-the-scenes of their films such as The Roosevelts and Brooklyn Bridge. Discover the heart, soul and history of this legendary waterway on a Hudson Valley tour that begins in romantic Montreal and winds through the rugged beauty of the Adirondacks… rambles in Lake Placid (with an Olympic ski jump demonstration), the farm of John Brown and an island retreat at Lake George… a cruise down the river to West Point… visits to the historic estates of the Rockefellers and the Roosevelts, a wine tasting, and overnight stays at elegant lakeside resorts and lodges… with the final stop at New York City and the electrifying Crossroads of the World.
