Carolina Tartan Tours presents "Billows and Breeze, Mountains and Seas"- An Outlander Tour of North Carolina. June 18-26, 2017
|Mission||Our mission is to share the beauty and rich history of the state of North Carolina with fans of the Diana Gabaldon book series, OUTLANDER and the STARZ series. Already renewed for a fourth season based on DRUMS OF AUTUMN, fans will have an opportunity to view the real-life setting for the book and series.|
Get ready for Season 4 of your favorite book and tv show, OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon . Diana Gabaldon's fourth book in the series brings the heroic Jamie and Claire Fraser to America in search of a new home, free from the constraints and conflicts in Scotland and England. Following Gabaldon's accurate history of Scottish immigration to America, the Frasers follow their fellow Highland Scots to the colony of North Carolina. Their path leads them from Charleston, South Carolina to Wilmington, North Carolina and eventually up the Cape Fear River to the Scots settlement of Cross Creek, the home of yet another of Jamie's MacKenzie kin, his Auntie Jocasta MacKenzie Cameron. A visit to the colonial capital of New Bern results in the offer of the frontier land of North Carolina- lots of it- in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Carolina Tartan Tours is pleased to offer the ultimate fan tour of North Carolina to follow the footsteps of Claire and Jamie in their new homeland via a 7-night, 8 day luxury charter bus tour. Experience North Carolina through their eyes, on a tour led by a long-time Outlander fan and native of North Carolina. You'll take in sights, sounds of historic Charleston via horse carriage tour, tour America's only tea plantation and meet with its owner, experience Wilmington's harbor on a sunset dinner cruise, tour Tryon Palace, Cross Creek and an historic Sandhills plantation home. Then it's on to the backcountry of Hillsborough, Alamance Battleground, Old Salem, and Boone in search of the illusive Fraser's Ridge.
All this in one trip--in a state larger than the country of Scotland - with many other "perks" . Please see www.carolinatartantours.com
