PAST EXPEDITIONS

We often get asked where have we been to and where are we heading to next. This is a catalog of our past expeditions and it is a useful resource for those wanting inspiration for a custom expedition or for travellers wanting to head on a scheduled expedition with us in the future. We tend to repeat our destinations every couple of years. We add a unique twist to the itinerary to keep them fresh for our repeat travellers.
