If you are seeking thrills and excitement, then an adventure holiday is for you. Whether you want to participate in a small group tour or you would prefer a bespoke private itinerary we can arrange it for you.
UNIQUE, EXHILARATING, AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES
Trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu; the ancient city is set high in the Andes Mountains. Along the way try paddle boarding and zip lining.
Maybe you want to do a safari with a twist? Instead of the traditional jeep safari experience try a guided walking safari in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. If you want to see orangutans, one of the best places to see them is at Batang Ai National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia. The Iban tribes are the custodians of the rare wildlife and lush national park and will teach visitors about their heritage and lifestyle. You can also volunteer at the orangutan rehabilitation centres.
Explore the lost city of Petra in Jordan, sand buggy in the desert, abseil, and rock climb in Wadi Rum. Or take the skies in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia, Turkey, and experience the valleys and volcanic formations below.
What could be more amazing than swimming alongside nature in Ningaloo Reef Western Australia? You are likely to see Hawksbill and loggerhead turtles and humpback whales. Whilst snorkelling you will come up close to a plethora of species of fish. Or if you want something more daring, try snorkelling with Hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos. One of the best places is Punta Espejo on the southeast edge of the island. You will also find dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, rays, and eels. For an exhilarating snorkel try cage diving in South Africa.
UNLEASH YOUR ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT
If warm and sunny destinations are not for you, how about seeing Polar Bears in the wild at Baffin Island in Canada. Despite the harsh conditions as it is so close to the Arctic Circle, a local guide will enable you to see polar bears, Arctic foxes, Arctic wolves, Orca and Beluga whales.
Have you ever wanted to try surfing? Sri Lanka is an excellent choice with its warm waters and peeling waves. Or perhaps you enjoy rafting? Then why not try the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA, overall grade IV (intermediate) but there is plenty of choice for the more advanced, such as the Rio Futaleufu that cuts through the canyons and wilderness of Patagonia (the best weather to do this is May to October).
Walking and being outdoors opens your senses to the world around us. Complete a walk-in style in New Zealand. It has ten official Great Walks and the Milford Track is arguably one of the best. It is a four da walky, just over 33 miles long, from Lake Te Anau to Milford Sound, cutting through the wonders of Fiordland National Park, seeing lakes, waterfalls, ice fields, forest and peaks at the panoramic Mackinnon Pass. The peak season for trekking is November to April and you can upgrade from bunk space lodges and stay in private lodges. If you want more of a challenge try climbing Kilimanjaro in Tanzania – one of the world’s greatest trekking summits. Or try Aconcagua mountain in Argentina which is a tougher, higher and non-technical challenge.
If culture is more your thing but you want to do it with a twist, visit an endangered tribe in the Amazon, Ecuador. Many of the tribe’s own lodges that travellers can stay in as it helps keep their tradition alive and protect their environment from developers. It provides visitors an authentic insight into how people have existed for centuries. The indigenous people of Ecuador’s Oriente have mastered eco-tourism and there are several options, including the Cofan - one of the oldest Amazonian tribes that have been running ecotourism since 1978. You can try canoeing, piranha fishing, trek in the wildlife dense rainforests or even camp overnight for the more adventurous.
