Coloring Your Day

Coloring isn’t just for kids. It’s a relaxing and therapeutic activity for all ages and can become a part of your mindfulness and meditative practice.


Xanterra has created some beautiful and intricate coloring pages, inspired by the wildlife that inhabit our unforgettable destinations. A humpback whale reminds us of our extraordinary voyages aboard Windstar Cruises. The grizzly bear with the geyser in the background is a postcard moment from Yellowstone National Park. The desert bighorn sheep invites you to recall The Oasis at Death Valley, and the mule makes us reminisce of the many miles trekked around Grand Canyon National Park.


Grab your colored pencils, markers, or crayons and let your mind wander as you color in these detailed designs. Once you’re done, don’t forget to take a picture and share your finished work of art on social media — and tag us at #XanterraTravel!

Sorry I Missed You

When it comes to the final days before going on vacation or a holiday weekend, people tend to fall into one of two categories: those who watch the clock incessantly, or those who are so busy before they leave, they might even forget to put up an out-of-office email reminder.


If you fall into team two, that doesn’t leave much time to get creative. Don’t sweat it—we have drafted some unique OOO messages that you can easily pop into your email before heading out on your adventure of a lifetime.


For instance, if you’re gearing up to experience one of the fantastic VBT Bicycling Tours, set this easily customizable OOO message. It’s fun and let’s everyone who emails you know you’re out enjoying nature on two wheels:


Hey — don’t you just love it when you send someone an email and get an immediate response? Sadly, this is not one of those times. 


I’m currently out-of-office, experiencing the incomparable beauty of [REGION/LOCATION] on a VBT bicycling tour. If your request is urgent, please reach out to [NAME] at [EMAIL]. Otherwise, I’ll get back to you upon my return on [RETURN DATE]. 


Happy trails!




P.S. If this swift auto-responder gave you false hope, know that I am here for you. Well, not really. Really I’m in [REGION/LOCATION], exploring the world on two wheels. But you get the idea.


An out-of-office response doesn’t have to be boring. On the contrary, it should inform and entertain. With Xanterra’s OOO messages, you’ll be the buzz of the office while you’re out exploring.
