Adventure travel

Time for an adventure?

Are you a bit bored with your nine-to-five routine? Have a look at our exciting range of holidays and decide what type of adventure you’d like.

Activity holidays

Our activity holidays are for everyone, people who love danger or who just like sports. We have a huge variety of water, snow or desert holidays. We’ll take you SCUBA diving in the Red Sea or kayaking and white water rafting in Canada. If you prefer snow, you can try skiing or snowboarding in the Alps or even igloo-building. For those who like warmer weather, we also have sandboarding (the desert version of skateboarding) or camel safaris.

Polar expeditions

Take a cruise to Antarctica or the northern Arctic; explore a land of white natural beauty and wonderful wildlife. Our experts will explain everything about the two poles as you watch the penguins in Antarctica or whales and polar bears in the Arctic. There's no greater adventure than travelling to the ends of the earth. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Cultural journeys

Our cultural journeys will help you discover ancient civilisations: India, Thailand, Egypt and many more. Visit temples, palaces and ancient ruins – just remember to bring your camera! Get to know local ways of life by exploring markets, trying exotic foods and meeting local people.

Trekking tours

We have trekking holidays to famous places such as Machu Picchu or the Everest Base Camp Trek, as well as some nearer to home in the Highlands of Scotland. You don’t need to be very sporty, just fairly fit. You’ll have a great time enjoying nature with a group of new friends. Some of the holidays include camping, but we’ll transport the tents for you!

Wildlife holidays

We organise small-group tours to get closer to nature in Africa, Asia or South America. Go on safari in Africa and watch lions and giraffes. Meet the famous turtles of the Galapagos Islands. Look for tigers in India, or take an elephant safari in Sri Lanka. We use local guides and stay in a range of accommodation, from tents to tree houses.

The best holiday I ever had is when I was 11. My family went to this an amazing pristine beach. The water was clear enough for me to see the sand and some fishes, too. I went seashell-collecting with my sister and we had a great time. All the shells were in different shapes and sizes and just lying everywhere on the coast. It was a memorable experience!

The vacation I liked the most was in 2017, when my parents put me in a drawing and kick boxing class that I really liked, but the best thing about this vacation is that I was able to spend a lot of time with my best friend because she was in the same class as me, so I spent it laughing and happy.

My best vacations were unforgettable, we traveled to Baños with my family in the New Year and we stayed in a beautiful hotel, we went to a waterfall, everything was so full of life, when night came we burned the puppet on a campfire and then we had a sleepover together with my cousins. In the end we returned to Quito after having breakfast.

I guess that the one that I loved. It, when I was in EEUU so when I went I take my plane around 7 am and when I was there, at least for me my experiences were unbelievable, I went to New York, New Jersey, Miami, Orlando, Newark. I visited Staten Island, Liberty Statue, and all of them was beautiful for me, I guess that this trip for me help me to expand my perspective about the world and the new people, the culture I can know. It was so nice.

In my vacations I went to Galapagos to the island of Santa Cruz to know its reef where in that place you could dive with the fish and as well know its beaches, its beautiful nature from there, I went to know the beach of Tortuga Bay where A diversity of fauna and flora was contracted, unique from there I met a very large farm where the turtles have decided to settle, although they are free and can enter and leave the area when they wish, in addition, the owners of the farm take care of the surroundings so that the turtles have everything they need from there, enjoy to share with my family and play paintball

The best vacations I have had have been with my family, we go to Tonsupa every year and we visit the beaches that are around too, whenever we go to the beach the first thing we do is walk along the shore and then we get into the sea, But yes, during the trip we prefer to have breakfast in the car, just to arrive and enjoy the whole day on the beach.

Sincerely I had much holiday that I think was the best, but one of them is when my course of the school went to Canoa, we stayed in a hotel close to the beach, where we shared hotel´s rooms, I remember that our room was of a double bed and a two bunk beds, my friend and I had to sleep in the double bed, that was very embarrassing. But in the night, when we went to sleep there was a blackout and our two classmates was scared and slept with us. Well, we went to the beach, we played in the sand and water but we didn't go that deep because the teach didn't allowed us, we ate different foods of the coast, fried fish, prawns and other that I don't remember much.
Everything was so good, was the best holiday that I remember, I was so happy.

Well, the truth is, my best vacation was with my friends, when we went to "Decameron Mompiche."For me it was unforgettable since it was the first time I went on a trip with my friends, my room was overlooking the sea, and the food was unique since there was food: sea food, Italian, and snacks. It was a unique experience, the nights were long, I went for a walk with my friends, we went to see movies and laughed a lot, in the morning we went to the sea and in the afternoon we went to the pool, and we slept super late, it's something that I will never forget, that was my best vacation.

My best holiday was when I went on a trip to the molinuco because I went with my family and my pets, we went for a walk through all the waterfalls, we swam in them, we camped, at night we told each other stories while we ate and we stayed talking until 2: 00 am and that is why I liked it a lot, we shared a moment that we had never experienced and we got too close.

The vacations that I remember the most and were one of my favorites happened two years ago during the carnival holiday where I went with my family with some friends we have known for a long time. We went to Chone, (it is located on the Coast), we have family in that place and they had invited us to my cousin's graduation, it was all very fun because after having lunch we all played carnival but very crazy, we used the first thing we found, They all got wet there was no one to save themselves from playing, in my case I ended up getting muddy, after so much fun we took a shower, it got late and we had to say goodbye and go back to the house where we were staying. We stayed for a week, I had a great time and it was my first experience playing carnival on the Coast and I would like to repeat it again

One of my best vacations was when I went on a trip to the United States, specifically a trip to Orlando with my family, it was a very beautiful and adventurous experience from the first moment we arrived, once we arrived in Orlando we visited the parks Disney which are wonderful, because they were full of attractions and games that were unique because you would not even imagine that these types of attractions can exist in addition to being entertaining for all ages, we had a lot of fun and shared family time, the most fun of the trip was that we ate ham sandwiches at all times as it was our snack for when we were hungry. Another of my favorite parts of the trip was when we went shopping and visiting the different shopping centers because they are very different from those of our country. I stayed 7 days in Orlando, when I returned I was very sad because I wanted to stay a while longer because I felt that there was much more that I needed to see, however it was actually a very surprising trip, unique and I enjoyed every moment there.

Honestly, the best vacations I have ever had were when I traveled to Brazil with my family, because I went to the concert of my favorite kpop band and also because it was the first time I left the country, the concert was going to do in Sao Paulo but I wasn´t much time there since I only stayed for the concert and then I traveled to Rio de Janeiro, the concert was at Allianz Park, it was a very nice experience since I was able to share it with my mother, I cried a lot but I was happy to have met them, after the concert was over we returned to the hotel since the next day I would travel to Rio de Janeiro,The trip to Rio was very exhausting but at the same time very beautiful since while we were going to our destination we could appreciate the beautiful landscape that surrounded the road, upon arrival we went to the hotel and after unpacking we went to the Aquarium, the following days we went to the Christ the Redeemer, Pão de Açucar and the Maracaná stadium, I really enjoyed the trip and I took back beautiful memories with my family, although I hope to return to Brazil.
