Austin Adventures has partnered with Boston-based apparel brand Life is Good to create Life is Good Vacations by Austin Adventures, a series of trips designed to combine adventure with self-discovery.

The 24-year-old Life is Good brand celebrates positive messaging and life's simple joys, according to the company. The ethos of the new Life is Good Vacations is enabling guests to connect with others and the outdoors through a refreshed, positive outlook. Packages are available now for travel dates starting in June 2018.

"These trips provide an unforgettable combo of pure outdoor fun, deep unplugged connections and true adventure," stated John Jacobs, Life is Good co-founder. "They're a spectacular way to recharge and get a fresh perspective on the good that's around us."

Life is Good Vacations kicks off with a trip to Montana and Yellowstone that will include biking, hiking, rafting and horseback riding. Travelers will experience local cuisine, and guides will show them some of the destinations' hidden gems.

The trips are a mix of family and adults-only that are designed for groups of 12 or fewer. In addition to "Montana -- Big Sky, Yellowstone & Paradise Valley," the other itineraries are "Utah -- Bryce Canyon & Zion," "Canadian Rockies -- Banff to Jasper," and "Costa Rica -- Manuel Antonio to Punta Islita."

Life is Good Vacations works with travel agents and will pay 12% commission.
