Ride Through Death Valley With Norman Reedus (Zombies Not Included!)

AMC’s “Ride with Norman Reedus” Visits Furnace Creek Resort in Episode 2; Map Available Online of Movies and TV Shows That Have Filmed in Death Valley Over the Years.
For years, Death Valley National Park has been a popular location to film movies and TV shows, and the latest to visit was AMC’s new travel series, “Ride with Norman Reedus” (AMC, Sundays at 10/9c). Mr. Reedus, known for riding motorcycles and killing zombies in “The Walking Dead,” explores Death Valley in episode two of the travel docu-series, which is now available online at AMC.com, the AMC app, or via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Xbox.
“Death Valley: Dante’s View” follows Mr. Reedus and actor/friend Balthazar Getty as they embark on a Las Vegas joyride to Death Valley, spending the night at the Inn at Furnace Creek and riding through volcano-formed mountains and painted canyons to Dante’s View. Reedus exclaims as he looks out over Death Valley and the Badwater salt flats, “This is probably the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Directors, producers and film crews have long known that Death Valley offers one of the most unique landscapes in the world (and the prettiest!); many popular movies and TV shows have been filmed in the destination, including the original episode of the “Star Wars” epic (“Episode IV – A New Hope”) and “The Return of the Jedi.” A complete list can be found on the Furnace Creek Resort website here: http://www.furnacecreekresort.com/filming-in-death-valley. Both the Inn at Furnace Creek and Furnace Creek Ranch have provided accommodations for the actors and film crews during the production of these movies and TV shows, and many actors have returned to enjoy the luxurious AAA Four Diamond, historic Inn at Furnace Creek for some rest and relaxation after filming has wrapped. Nestled into the mountainside where the spring bubbles forth, the Inn was built in the late 1920s by the Borax Company and features 66 elegant rooms, fine dining, verandas with sweeping views of Death Valley, opulent gardens, a stunning spring-fed pool (maintaining a constant temperature of 85 degrees), tennis courts and pool-side massages.
With its towering palm trees and true oasis atmosphere, The Ranch at Furnace Creek is fed by natural spring waters and boasts a large pool, golf course (the lowest on Earth), post office, general store, casual dining restaurants, horseback riding and 224 family-friendly rooms. The Borax Museum, with artifacts large and small including some of the original 20 Mule Team Wagon trains, also calls The Ranch home, as does a nearby landing strip. The Death Valley National Park visitor center is also within walking distance.
And there is plenty to do – or not do. For active vacationers, activities range from hiking, cycling, and Jeep treks to horseback riding and golf. The lush oasis also attracts wildlife such as roadrunners and coyotes, and it is also one of only a few gold-tier designated International Dark Sky Parks in the United States where stargazers can actually see the Milky Way with the naked eye.
Furnace Creek Resort is two hours west of Las Vegas by car and a four-hour drive from Los Angeles.

The tour is guided by top Guatemala and Latin American expedition travel leaders Jose Antonio Gonzalez, archaeologist and explorer, and Emilio Faillace, naturalist and environmentalist, ensuring that the tour will be a rewarding and educational experience for all ages.
With Bella Guatemala Travel, authenticity meets luxury with a sustainable approach.

Las Lagunas Hotel also serves as a private nature reserve, making it an ideal landscape for bird and wildlife viewing and other eco activities. The Hotel Camino Real, near the historic heart of Guatemala City, maintains a warm and elegant ambiance with colonial influences that honor its rich history, culture and traditions. Hotel Aurora in Antigua keeps a lovely, quaint atmosphere and is located in the center of this historical icon, surrounded by restored Spanish Baroque churches, museums and cobblestoned avenues. A cultural Guatemalan tour wouldn’t be complete without authentic local flavor. All meals are included in the itinerary and travelers will enjoy, among others, dinner at Kacao, a traditional Guatemalan restaurant at the heart of Guatemala City; at Fridas, celebrating the cuisine of Guatemala’s neighbor to the north, famous for paying homage to renowned Latin artist Frida Kahlo; the highly acclaimed Shultun restaurant, which combines astonishing views and a sophisticated ambience with local gourmet flavors, specially made with fresh, exotic ingredients; and perched on a hill that shares the site with an art museum and sculpture garden, El Tenedor del Cerro, overlooking Antigua and offering a fusion of international dishes using fresh local ingredients.

Filmmaker James Cameron shares his passion for New Zealand

Oscar winning filmmaker James Cameron shares his passion for New Zealand in new global video. James Cameron and his wife chose New Zealand as their second home four years ago. Now the Hollywood filmmaker wants to show the world why he is so passionate about the place he describes as ‘my kind of country’. James Cameron is sharing his love of New Zealand, fronting a new video that gives the world a glimpse of what it is about the country that captivates him like nowhere else. Cameron’s personal connection with New Zealand stems from his very first visit in the mid-nineties. “I came as a stranger, I knew very little about New Zealand, and I left in love with it. Not just the beauty of the land that is very seductive, but the dynamic spirit of the people. I had never felt a connection to a place that strongly before. And I never really lost that dream.” In a collaboration with Tourism New Zealand, Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis Cameron spent four days filming, taking in the natural wonders of New Zealand’s spectacular South Island. The couple walk on the Tasman Glacier, kayak through a Dart River canyon and take in the sweeping views of Blanket Bay by helicopter. They hike on the alpine Routeburn Track, cycle beside Lake Pukaki and visit Mount Alfred in the Glenorchy area near Queenstown. The Cameron family have a coastal estate north of the capital city, Wellington, where he is immersed in the development of the next Avatar. They divide their time between New Zealand and California. He says: “There is so much to see and experience and you can do it all because everything is so close together. We go on hikes, cycle the incredible trails, kayak in the ocean and walk through the forest. If you enjoy the outdoors and you enjoy a sense of adventure, you’re not going to be able to beat this place anywhere in the world. “If you happen to like helicopters like I do, you could see ten of the most stunning places you’ll see in your lifetime in a day. If you are driving, an hour and a half or two hours, the country just unrolls toward you like an IMAX film.” A world renowned explorer and environmentalist, Cameron is passionate about discovery. “When you see something you have never seen before, it’s a wonderful experience. It’s like a living painting; it’s never the same view two days in a row.” The Cameron video will roll out in Tourism New Zealand’s key markets around the world and Chief Executive Kevin Bowler is confident it will inspire more people to visit New Zealand. He says: “Having someone of the calibre of James Cameron sharing his personal stories and insights while exploring some of New Zealand’s most beautiful places is of immeasurable value for New Zealand. James and Suzy have chosen to have a home in New Zealand and continue to be inspired by our beautiful landscapes and welcoming, creative people. ‘‘I am sure that this video, which perfectly captures James’s passion for exploration and his curiosity, will inspire many more people to travel to New Zealand and discover the country for themselves.” Daniel Borgman, the Auckland resident and New Zealander who directed the video says: “Having been born and bred in the South Island, it has been a poignant moment in my career to be telling its story through the eyes of James Cameron. As one of the most respected filmmakers of our time, to have him in front of the camera has allowed us to create a really special and atmospheric piece of content we are all extremely proud to share.” Locations featured in the James Cameron/100% Pure New Zealand video: Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park – in the spectacular Southern Alps, New Zealand's highest alpine park encompasses 19 peaks rising to 3000-plus metres and numerous glaciers covering 40 percent of the land area. The skies above form the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, recognised for the rare quality of its almost light-pollution-free skies. Tasman Glacier – Tasman Glacier, at 27km New Zealand's largest and longest glacier, terminates close to Mt Cook Village. Visitors can hike on the glacier, explore ice caves or take a boat ride through the icebergs in the terminal lake. Lake Pukaki - Lake Pukaki is the largest of three lakes occupying ancient glacial valleys in the Mackenzie Basin. The lake’s distinctive deep turquoise tones are from finely ground minerals carried in the glacier-fed waters originating from iconic Aoraki Mt Cook. Glenorchy – the 45-minute drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy, on the northern shores of Lake Wakatipu, has been acclaimed as one of the world’s Top Eight Scenic Drives. The small tourist town is the setting-off point for hiking and jet-boating adventures in Mt Aspiring National Park. Paradise – 20km beyond Glenorchy, Paradise is a remote farming valley that has long been a popular excursion destination for visitors. It featured as a location in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, and the much-photographed valley vistas include Diamond Lake and iconic Mount Earnslaw. Dart River – the braided waters of the Dart River flow from the mountains of the Southern Alps into Lake Wakatipu. The best way to enjoy this remote forested alpine landscape is by jet-boat on a Dart River Safari from Queenstown or Glenorchy. There are also more relaxed ‘funyak’ inflatable canoe rides. Routeburn Track – one of New Zealand’s nine ‘Great Walks’, the 32km Routeburn Track is a two to four day hike via alpine meadows, reflective tarns and alpine gardens, with spectacular vistas over vast mountain ranges and valleys. The walking season runs from October to May, and bookings are required for the huts along the track. Mount Alfred – from the northern end of Lake Wakatipu, Mt Alfred is a popular day hike. The 4-6 hour return trip begins from the western side of the Dart River valley and the track zigzags uphill through native beech forest for most of the way. A good level of fitness is required but the reward is some of the best lake, river and alpine views to be found in the Southern Alps. Blanket Bay – this exclusive luxury lodge, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu near Queenstown, is a home-away-from-home for the rich and famous looking for privacy, relaxation and pampering, or the endless outdoor adventures on the doorstep. The 13-room lodge has lake views and award-winning cuisine.
