Active

Active travel is one of the best ways to fully immerse yourself in a destination: to get out there and see the vistas, to experience the unfiltered sights and sounds, to breathe in the fragrances of the place. Perhaps more importantly, active travel gets you off the hotel property and out of the vehicles to interact with locals, and to slow down to truly discover the beauty of the destination. It provides unique perspectives that most travelers miss. And the big reward – pumping endorphins and, when done right, some of the most sumptuous and well-earned meals you will ever enjoy! If you love active pursuits, why not weave-in some action on your next trip: trekking, cycling, white water rafting, kayaking, surfing, zip lining… The possibilities are endless!

These trips are just a sample of the kinds of itineraries we can create which feature active travel. We compose unique travel experiences that are just right for you.
