Location Overview

We want you to be able to find your dream tour, whether you want one to take care of your wellness, get active or sail around beautiful shores so if there’s a destination you’re interested in which isn’t listed on our site just get in touch.  We have so many destinations and possibilities available that we can’t list them all on our site but we’re more than happy to discuss your preferences and then confidently recommend the perfect tour for you.  

Wellness Approach

The active tours combine physical activity with travel and are specifically designed to engage the muscles as much as the mind. It has been scientifically proven that travel clears the mind, and triggers genetic changes that decrease stress levels and boost the immune system. Meanwhile, being active not only induces a rush of endorphins, which make you feel happy and energised, but also decreases blood pressure, and reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer. Being active in a foreign environment, therefore, has been proven to have a multitude of physical and mental health benefits. Every active tour allows you to experience these benefits first-hand and uncover your physical side, through fun, adventurous activities, set against picturesque natural landscapes. From exploring these magical countries by hiking and biking, to discovering beyond the shores with white water rafting and snorkelling, there are endless possibilities to engage in fun activities on these tours. Whether this is your first active holiday, or your hundredth, these tours provide as much action as you need, with activities ranging from leisurely strolls through villages to physical pursuits like rock climbing or ziplining.

Accommodation Overview

Argentina & Chile 
Accommodation in Buenos Aires and Mendoza are clean and comfortable, with the essential amenities such as Wi-Fi, complimentary toiletries and 24-hour reception. Each hotel well located for you to dive into the bustling city of BA, discovering tango dance salons and Argentinian steak houses, or the wineries and vineyards of Mendoza. Moving into Patagonia the accommodation will be slightly more basic but is overcompensated by the beautiful surroundings and ability to step out of the door into the natural world. An exciting taste of nomadic life will come from 3 nights camping during the famous W trek and one night on a high standard night bus.

 

Bhutan
Camping for three nights with little electricity as you trek through the Druk Path is a refreshing break from the technology-based lives we lead. It will immerse you in the stunning nature of the majestic Himalayas, allowing you to get up close and personal with all that Bhutan has to offer. You will spend the remaining time in beautifully located hotels with incredible views of the Bhutan landscapes. The traditionally designed hotel in Paro boasts stunning views of the Valley of Paro and with a spa and wellness centre you will feel relaxed as you explore this beautiful area.

 

China
The diverse mix of accommodation on this tour encourages travellers to fully embrace the culture and experience China like a local. During the Great Wall Trek, there is a unique opportunity to interact with the local farmers and enjoy a traditionally prepared Chinese meal as you are treated to a homestay in a rural farm. The hotels are designed with traditional décor offering a rustic feel, whilst providing a fewmodern luxuries, like Wi-Fi. You will also experience an overnight train which will give you the chance to catch up with your fellow travellers and chat to the local commuters.

 

Galapagos
The hotel you will be staying at on the Galapagos islands will have all the required facilities including Wi-Fi, restaurants, swimming pools and bars for the moments of relaxation time between adventures. Your time at the hotel will be minimised as your week will be spent gallivanting around the archipelago chasing down animals and landscapes you have never seen before. 2 nights will also be spent in a community guest house. Clean and comfortable, you will be treated to local experiences, food and stories as you integrate into one of the world most secluded cultures.

 

Japan
Featuring tatami floors, futon beds, Japanese-style baths, cotton kimonos and elaborate meals, the nights you will spend in a ryokan (traditional inn) will provide a deeper understanding of the unique customs and fascinating culture of Japan. You will also spend time in Minshuku which are Japan’s version of the Western bed and breakfast that we are familiar with. Family-operated, simply designed and affordable, Minshuku are a huge hit with locals as well as tourists. This offers a great opportunity to get stuck into the culture and learn about the traditions of Japan from those that know it best.
