Undiscovered Destinations

As travellers explore further afield and the world becomes more familiar, we are proud to offer small group tours and adventure holidays to regions where local culture is at its most vibrant, where you won’t bump into masses of other visitors, and where you can get a real sense of exploration.

  • Our range of small group adventure tours and tailor made adventure holidays have been carefully researched to provide exciting and groundbreaking travel experiences. Most of our itineraries and even many of our destinations are offered by no other UK companies.
  • As a small and independent company we offer a truly personalised service, and when you call us you can be sure that you will be talking to someone dedicated to helping you get the most from your travels.
  • We don’t aim to provide the cheapest tours available as we believe that this rarely does justice to the places visited. What we do concentrate on is ensuring that our tours contain the very best elements of the region we’re travelling through, whether that be a well known highlight or a hidden gem tucked away that few get to see.
  • We are an award winning tour operator. In 2014 we won a silver in the British Travel Awards 'Best Escorted Adventure Holiday Company' category and we have been awarded with a Wanderlust Magazine 'Top Tour Operator' certificate, having come 10th out of over 400 entries in both 2014 and 2016.
