Looking for adventure and like to travel with a local company?  Each year National Geographic Traveler  names “50 Tours of a Lifetime” and the guided trips  of some Seattle-area companies have made the magazine’s 2014 list.

Among them are

– EverGreen Escapes was named to the “top 50″ list for its 6-day Olympic Adventure, a small-group tour exploring the wilderness of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula (from $3,550 per person).

– REI Adventures was honored for its 7-day Iceland Winter Adventure tour (from $3,299).

– Zegrahm Expeditions made the list for its 19-day, small-ship Voyage to Madagascar.  It’s a very deluxe African adventure (starting at $13,980).
