We’ve all heard the quote, “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey”.
We add to it, “It is all about the experience and learning”.
Experiential travel is synonymous with the pursuit of slow, immersed, and authentic experiences abroad. Even more than a genre of travel, experiential travel is a mindset that requires travelers to redefine their relationship to places and spaces, to see them as fluid and dynamic, not one-dimensional bucket-list items to stand in front of, photograph, and walk away smug and satisfied.
Experiential travelers know — in contrast to the rest of their lives — that it’s not about how far they go, how fast they arrive, and how much they see, but about the depth of their adventures and their closeness to the heartbeat of the places themselves.
It also requires travelers to redefine their relationship to time, to see it as plentiful rather than scarce. It requires them to take a deep breath and say, “I have the time” or, more powerfully, “I will make the time” to engage in a better breed of travel.
We offer various customised eco travel and volunteer programs ranging from a few weeks to a few months.
