The 2017 Lineup

Our 2017 calendar is packed with things to do and places to go. Have a look at the small group fixed departures here. We’ll be posting new adventures so keep an eye on the site and let us know if you spot something to suit your travel interests in 2017. NEW 2017 trips in the pipeline but not quite on the calendar yet are;

Lake Baikal and Gulag Trail

Irkutsk to Magadan:
18 Days, August 2017 Dates and cost to be confirmed.


In August 2017 we are off to the Russian far east to explore Lake Baikal, take a short 3 day return cruise on the Lena River from Yakutsk downstream as far as the spectacular Leninski Towers and make the journey overland to Magadan via the infamous ‘Road of Bones’; the Stalin era R504 Kolyma Highway where derelict gulags and abandoned villages are a counter point to the spectacular wild scenery along the way. Register your interest here and we’ll keep you advised of progress.

India’s Hidden Kingdom

Delhi to Leh:
18 Days, September 2017 Dates and cost to be confirmed


Join us in September for this ‘touring style’ exploration of India’s stunningly picturesque Himachal Pradesh. We’ll be visiting the hill stations and following the trade routes into the headwaters of the Sutlej and Chenab rivers; to Spiti with its soaring peaks and hilltop monasteries then beyond across the Zanskar Mountains to Leh in Ladakh. Come prepared for endless mountain vistas and fascinating cultural insights. Register your interest here and we’ll keep you advised of progress.
