Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are traveling 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 travelers 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 travelers 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 vacation 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 traveling; 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 traveling through. All solo travelers 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 travelers 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 vacation package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your inquiry.

Responsible tourism

Lombok & Bali vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Lombok is one of the poorest provinces of Indonesia. Much of the poverty is hidden from the visitor's eye, as the areas that need the most support are the areas that gain the least from tourism revenue. Their neglect is largely due to their distance from tourist areas, main roads and city centers.Our Lombok trip focuses on the areas of the island where few other tourists venture. We co-operate with local initiatives in order to lend support to communities in this remote region.

The area of Karangbaru in Central East Lombok consists of 8 "dusun" (small villages). We are working, together with the local Karangbaru administration, to provide a reliable source of water to the three most isolated dusun: Burne, Erot and Tandangolok. Through the construction of an iron pipe network, clean water from further up Rinjani Mountain will be channelled into large concrete tubs, for daily use by these remote villagers. During the Lombok trip we enjoy a spectacular walk near the base of Rinjani that includes a visit to the Burne dusun where the whole community turns out to welcome us. A local representative has been appointed to oversee the construction and ensure that the funds are utilised to the maximum benefit of the village.

The environment is extremely important to us and in Lombok we are sponsoring the production of a local environmental magazine 'Asyik'. This magazine was first published in 1995 but has not been printed for three years due to lack of funding. The reading material comprises letters and other contributions about the environment from local Lombok communities. Given that education plays an integral role in future environmental protection, the magazine is distributed to primary schools throughout the island.

We encourage a local tree-planting initiative in Lombok, through which our travelers can sponsor the plantation of a fruit tree (primarily Avocado, Papaya, Rambutan, Mango and the famous Durian). 'The Green' program concentrates on three locations in Lombok, each chosen for their soil compatibility, climate, sustainability and local needs and each in close proximity to Lombok destinations. Anyone can support 'The Green' by purchasing a seedling, which is then planted in any one of the three locations. Sponsors are given an official certificate and are able to visit 'their' tree at any time.

In addition to the above, we also collect donated clothing and makes distribution drops in Lombok on regular days when people from a wide area converge on certain villages for public health immunisations.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


WOW! So many different experiences and so many wonderful people. Climbing Mt Batur at 4am to see the sun rise was a major highlight and swimming in the cool clear waterfall in Lombok.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


You need to be relatively fit, however, there is not pressure to participate in any of the activities. Accommodation and transport are very basic but add to the whole experience. Take ear plugs!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


The bus transport gave of a few fumes...but generally we when to remote areas that would benefit from our visit.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Exceeded all my expectations both culturally and activity. I did and saw things I never thought I would experience. We had an amazing group from 20 - 65 and a fabulously chilled group leader who played guitar wherever we went!
