Marvel at the sight of nearly 12,000 hooded and white-naped cranes, as they flock to Japan’s exquisite wintertime landscape, Arasaki, Kyushu—later, a boat trip to the tip of the Shiretoko Peninsula puts us up close and personal with Steller’s sea eagles.
Small Group Adventures
Our small group adventures explore the world’s most intriguing destinations in the company of a seasoned Expedition Leader or Travel Director and experienced local guides. Group sizes are limited to 10 – 14 guests allowing for an intimate experience and the chance to get to know your fellow travelers. Accommodations on all of our adventure tours are selected to immerse you in the destination and include some of the world’s leading hotels, select boutique properties, rustic eco-lodges, and iconic safari camps.
Each expedition trip is matched with ideal modes of transportation and depending on the destination, you’ll journey by 4x4 vehicles, comfortable motor coaches, local boats, and charter flights. You’ll also enjoy gourmet meals, (most dietary requirements can be catered to) accompanied by select local beverages, all included in the price of your expedition. In Africa, stay at camps that combine outstanding wilderness experiences with comfortable lodging—imagine strolling from your room to a deck overlooking a water hole frequented by elephants—plus, you are guaranteed a window seat on all safari drives. In Mongolia, you’ll stay in traditional ger camps, nomadic-style tents set in remote wilderness, or choose a luxurious “glamping” experience in some of Southeast Asia’s most unique and innovative properties. And after searching for tigers in India or tracking jaguars in the Amazon, return to your romantic jungle lodge, equipped with modern amenities and proximity to the wilderness you seek.
The itineraries we offer vary from year to year; below please find our upcoming small group adventure tours.
