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, boatÖ

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: Trekking vacation in Jordan

Environment

This is a small group trekking adventure and we want to leave nothing behind but footprints. So, our experienced and committed leaders ensure that no rubbish is left in our wake, protecting the environment for local wildlife and future generations. We carry bags to collect up any litter produced and make sure that it is disposed of properly.

To reduce single use plastics during this trip, we give reusable cloth bags to all of our travelers. Many Jordanian hotels and operators provide plastic bottles of water making it easy to use plastic excessively. However, we encourage our travelers to buy larger 5-10 litre bottles that they then use to refill their smaller ones.

Water conservation is a hot topic in Jordan, as itís one of the driest countries in the world. Our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travelers on initiatives to manage water consumption, and we are working with our suppliers to encourage better management of this precious commodity. This may be by way of water refilling opportunities in hotels and more signage to advertise water conservation practices. We also ask our travelers to take short showers and to never leave the tap running unnecessarily.

Community

This trip is run by our own local Jordanian operator who shares our commitment to responsible travel, from waste and water management to ensuring we leave as minimal a footprint as possible. Our local team are trained on our global responsible travel policies and practices.

We encourage our travelers to eat in local establishments, including our favourite: a socially responsible kitchen where each meal you purchase buys a second meal for a homeless person or another community member in need.

In a country where the workforce is dominated by males, only 12-15% of the formal workforce sector are female and 25% of the informal workforce sector, we are actively campaigning for change by training more local female guides.

Our philosophy is to act local and that means respecting local traditions. For instance, women will be required to wear a headscarf when appropriate and both men and women are required to dress conservatively, with arms and legs covered.

We also take care to form genuine and mutually beneficial relationships with local people. An excellent example of this is in the remote Bedouin desert camp stay, where we get a taste of what itís like to live like a Bedouin, eat local food and sleep under the stars.
