A Sneak Peek at Our New Guaranteed Departure Programs for 2021/22

With our borders still closed to foreign arrivals but all restrictions lifted within, our teams have taken the opportunity to dedicate their time & focus fully on crafting new immersive and active travel products. We are proud to announce that as a result they have been able to design & trial 8 brand new guaranteed departure tours to Southeast Asia for 2021 & 2022!
As our first  3 Seat-in-Coach programs were entirely geared towards cycling, we’ve focussed for our new programs on hiking, multi-sport and more soft-adventure programs, geared towards satisfying a larger variety of travel styles. As usual, nature and interactions with local communities have been the redlining throughout all itineraries.
Full marketing materials and documentation are still in the works but nevertheless we’d already wanted to offer you a sneak peek into what’s coming 😉
