Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Travel is an opportunity to experience different cultures, meet new people, taste weird and wonderful foods and – for many – to get close to wildlife you may have only seen in books or David Attenborough documentaries. We actively discourage our travellers from participating in any activities that exploit wild, domestic or working animals. We believe wild animals should be viewed – without contact or interaction – doing what they do best: living in the wild. This applies, for example, when spotting grizzly bears, wolves and moose in Denali and Wrangell-St Elias National Park.

During this tour we’ll visit several sites of natural beauty. Each time our travellers will be advised to stick to the signposted trails to minimise their impact on these fragile environments. We also see it as our responsibility to ask all travellers to take any rubbish with them and ensure no litter is left behind.

Unfortunately on this itinerary, using local transport is not reliable or feasible. So we use private, locally owned transport. However, we always ensure our vehicles/fleets are well maintained and fuel-efficient.

The Impacts of this Trip

An important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing “real life” in your chosen destination. Due to our small group sizes, a maximum of 13 people on this particular tour, it’s possible for us to keep our impact on the local environment and community to a minimum. The size of the group also means we’re able to stay in smaller locally-run accommodation, which enables us to support the local economy and have a more authentic North American experience.

We also eat in local restaurants and encourage travellers to purchase traditional souvenirs from local artisans. Through doing so they’re able to gain an authentic insight into the lives of local people and support their businesses directly.

We also employ only local guides, who live and breathe our responsible travel philosophy. All travellers will be briefed about what it means to be a responsible traveller in their initial welcome meeting, which takes place on the first day of the tour.
