Costa Rica

In spite of its size, Costa Rica is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world with volcanoes, rainforests, and beaches to explore.

Hosting a wealth of activities from trekking expansive national parks and nature reserves to relaxing in the Arenal Volcano hot springs with a cocktail, you will certainly never get bored!

If you’re a wildlife lover then Manuel Antonio National Park is one of the most beautiful and bio-diverse areas to explore; providing a clash of terrains, where the rainforest meets the beach!

Alternatively, venture further inland to the Cloud Forests of Monteverde to stand within the clouds at canopy level, offering a unique perspective of the flora and fauna surrounding you.

With so much to explore, it’s hard to know where to start - a guided tour will take you straight to the action, providing you with the free time to recuperate ready for the next day’s adventure.

Japan is a feast for the senses, from its neon-lit neighbourhoods to tranquil hilltop temples. In Japan, tradition and modernity are celebrated side-by-side in ways that often appear contradictory.

Immerse yourself in this exciting culture, such as sprawling Tokyo, imperial Kyoto, or the many traditional temples spread around the country.

Explore this country to its full potential: geisha districts and peaceful gardens; savour the flavours of Japanese cuisine; modern shopping and tech districts; there's so much to explore.

In this fascinating land of anime, snow monkeys, and high-speed trains, there is something to entertain every visitor.

If you’d like something more traditional, we’d highly suggest visiting and walking through the many Torii gates that lead up to the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto.

Like the idea of doing things a bit more hands-on? We’ve got a tour where you can take part in taiko drumming, sumo wrestling, and putting together your own ramen. Take a look here

Mayan Route

Trek through jungles to Mayan ruins to get an authentic taste of Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. Explore the ruins of Tikal, an ancient Mayan citadel in the rainforests of northern Guatemala - providing a little competition to the more well-known Chichén Itzá ruins of Mexico.

The Palenque ruins (Mexico) contain some of the finest architecture that the Mayans produced, and it is estimated that only 10% of the lost citadel has been explored.

After a hard day of playing Tomb Raider there are plenty of refreshingly cool Cenotes and waterfalls to frolic in! Cascada de Roberto Barrios, or Roberto Barrios waterfall is made up of a selection of pools which you can explore yourself and swim to your heart's content.

Not to mention the white sand beaches that adorn the coast in these beautiful countries! In our opinion, this touring route is the perfect mix of adventure and rejuvenation!
