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

Responsible tourism: Dubrovnik to Venice tour

Environment

In an attempt to tackle over tourism, we travel in groups of 16 or less on this trip. These small group sizes allow us to explore in such a way that we have the least impact on the nature of our destination. During this tour, we visit Plitvice Lakes National Park which was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status 20 years ago. It’s an area spanning 19 hectares of wooded hills, encircling 16 turquoise lakes and connected by a network of waterfalls – it’s a very sensitive ecosystem that needs to be protected. The park is home to deer, bears, wolves, boars and over 120 species of birds, including hawks and eagles. On top of that you’ll also find thick, primeval forests of beech trees, fir spruces and white pines. Everyday lots of tourists walk along the paths to admire the beauty of nature, and in order to maintain this it’s important to follow the park’s rules. For example, you’re not allowed to swim in the lakes especially during summer.

It’s always important to us that nature is treated with care and consideration. So, a series of wooden walkways have been built across the landscape to keep the impact as low as possible and our guides are sure to stick to the signposted tracks. When visiting fragile environments, remote areas and national parks, we operate a ‘take in, take back out’ system. Meaning our travelers gather any rubbish they create whilst hiking and to ensure no litter is left behind.

As a company we are strongly committed to carbon offsetting. The main sources of carbon emission from our trips (transport, accommodation and waste) are assessed and offset into renewable energy projects. We’ve offset over 250,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from our trips and offices worldwide. Part of the cost of your trip is dedicated to carbon offsetting. A way to keep our ecological footprint as low is to travel on public transport as much as possible. From Dubrovnik to Split and from Ljubljana to Venice we use public buses. Furthermore, we travel by train from Zagreb to Ljubljana. And on our day trip from Split to Trogir, we use a ferry instead of a small, private cruise ship just for our group. In this way, the burden on the environment would be much greater, since considerably more people can travel on the ferry. Besides having a smaller impact on the environment, public transport gives our travelers a unique opportunity to get in touch with the locals and learn more about the life of a local Eastern European. In that way we travel like a local, with locals.

Community

The running of this trip supports local people and the local economy, by using a wide range of different local accommodations, in particular hotels, hostels, pensions and guesthouses. This is a perfect example of how we counteract over tourism by supporting small, locally-owned businesses.
Eastern Europe is a lesser-visited part of Europe and tourism is still under construction here, meaning that there are structural weaknesses here and there. Understanding local life is another important part of travel and so we source local activities which we believe are sustainable to the economy by allowing the flow of income from visitors to be distributed to a greater audience rather than remaining concentrated with tourism providers.

Our company strives to create employment opportunities in the countries that we travel to and our staff is made up of many different people from all over the world. We offer local people good working conditions, a fair wage, and empower them through training opportunities. We work to maximise the benefits generated by tourism for local economies and communities. We want our customers to get into contact with the locals wherever possible. On this journey we travel through three different countries across Southern and Eastern Europe and have made it our goal to give the travelers a deep and authentic insight into the different cultures. This tour actively encourages guests to chat with local people, visit local cafes and bars, purchase local produce, gifts and crafts and discover what life is really like in this region. For example, by visiting the fish market in Split, we support the local fishing community. In Venice we will sample some fresh lobster and squid ink spaghetti dishes, both specialties of the region.

With our small group we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. Our travelers get an insight into the everyday life of the locals without influencing it in any way at the same time. Our passionate local guides can also tell travelers a lot about the culture, traditions and history of the countries they visit. Our goal is to promote intercultural communication and understanding.
