For travellers seeking a slower pace

Our Comfort trips are all about adventure, with a higher level of comfort than our Original and Basix trips. These slower-paced trips are built to smooth some of travels rougher edges, meaning you’ll be on private transport more often, the pace will be more relaxed and your accommodation will be a touch above the essentials. You’ll also be treated to more included meals and leader-led activities, with a focus on embracing all things local.

Where you can go

Where you'll stay

Where we stay ensures we keep our travellers firmly entrenched in a region’s people and culture, and provides them with unique local experiences that benefits the community too. In most locations we stay in comfortable hotels, though on most of our trips we also get to stay a night or two in some pretty special feature stays on most trips.

How you'll get around

Group on a boat cruising along the River Nile

Our Comfort trips mostly use private vehicles, though in some destinations we seek out unique modes of transport for speed and convenience.

This could be anything from a bullet train through the Japanese countryside, a traghetto ride on the canals of Venice or a sailing trip down the Nile River on a private felucca.
