Holiday type

Overland

If you’re looking for adventure, an opportunity to travel with like-minded travellers and to get off the beaten track then this type of trip is for you! We will sometimes be covering long distances over a period of a few days but will then most often be camped up for a few days with opportunities for adventure activities, visiting local communities, time in a town or city to chill out or wildlife viewing experiences. The roads are sometimes bumpy and you need to expect the unexpected! This type of travel is through regions where things can change and experiences are more important than luxury – borders sometimes close and there may not always be hot water in the showers! You will generally be camping out under the stars, sometimes out in the bush, but generally more on campsites. (Our South America and Central Asia trips also use small locally-run hostels and guest houses). The trips are fully participative so you will be involved shopping for food in local markets, cooking for your group (on a rota system), collecting water and setting up camp. If you’re not confident about doing any of these things beforehand, don’t worry our crew are there to help you and you’ll be good at it by the time you finish!

You will be travelling on one of our own purpose built overlanding vehicles with up to 24 travellers, many of whom will be travelling on their own. It is a great way for solo travellers to travel. We have lost count of the number of travellers who have met their future spouse on one of our trips! Our vehicles are fully equipped with tents and cooking equipment and are designed for great all-round viewing and a sociable seating plan. You will be accompanied on your trip by a Driver and Tour Leader and, depending on your trip, we often use local guides at sites of specific interest for more detailed information.

This type of travel will provide you with a plethora of memories and stories to tell, new-found travelling companions and friends and a well-exercised spirit of adventure!

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Santiago to Buenos Aires overland tour, 31 days

Environment

Before the trip commences clients are sent detailed pre-departure information which includes advice on responsible travel. This information is re-emphasised by the tour leader at the start of the trip-clients, for example, are advised about respecting local customs, conservation of natural habitats and wildlife, litter disposal etc.

On this trip approximately 80% of our time is spent camping and 20% is in simple hotels/hostels/dorm rooms. Camping leaves no opportunity for excess energy consumption . You can't leave the lights on or overuse the heating/air conditioning or not reuse the towels!

We are very aware as a company of the value of water and it's conservation. We advise all our travellers to take a sturdy water bottle with them on our trips, and preferably one that has an in built filtration system. We carry plentiful supplies of water with us on our trucks and there is always drinking water available -24 hours per day. This eliminates the need to buy bottled water and all the environmental concerns this raises with plastic bottle waste.

Community

On this trip we stay at small, locally run campsites or hostels and buy our food locally, thereby directly supporting local communities. We use local companies to run all our excursions. They, in turn, employ local drivers and guides-supporting the local economy. For example, in Torres del Paine the campsite that we stay at offers fishing and horse riding trips run by members of the local community. In Chile, the white water rafting option is run by a local family. We have been supporting their business over a number of years.

We encourage our travellers to eat at local restaurants and to buy crafts and produce from local artisans. In Bariloche, known as Argentina's, if not South America's, chocolate capital our crew will certainly encourage you to try the local produce! In El Chalten, there are a number of micro businesses that our travellers are usually keen to support - a microbrewery, vineria and chocolateria!
