Our trip styles

For travellers seeking adventure

Our trips are carefully designed to make sure you have an unforgettable experience. Our various trip styles mean no matter what kind of adventure you’re after, we’ve got one for you.


Our Basix trips are designed for travellers of any age on a budget, we use simple, clean and centrally located accommodation, local transport where we can and include plenty of free time. This means you can do the things that suit your budget and interests, rather than paying for inclusions you don’t want.
