Off the beaten track vacations

This exclusive range of vacations takes our small group travel ethos and applies it to new, exciting and little visited destinations in Asia.

We currently run specialist Small Group Tours to Mongolia, Bhutan, Tibet and The Silk Road through China. Each journey is led by a Western tour leader & local guide and has been expertly researched to ensure you go beyond the tourist trail and into more remote and untouched areas of Asia that offer truly pioneering travel experiences.

Insider experiences include an overnight home-stay in a traditional “Ger” in Mongolia, hiking to the Tigers Nest Monastery in Bhutan, taking butter tea at a family home in Tibet and spending time at local festivals like the Nadaam Festival in Mongolia and Bhutan’s Jambay Lakhang festival.
