Small group adventures this Easter
There are almost as many ways to travel as there are travellers. Solo, family holidays, backpacking, expeditions, tours, on wheels of some kind, on feet, on water, luxury, budget… the list goes on.
A well rounded approach is to experience as many different forms of travel as interest you.
This includes the (sometimes) misunderstood small group adventure experience.
Close your eyes right now and imagine a group tour. We’re willing to bet that the picture in your head includes a tour bus and lots of people in bermuda shorts with cameras strapped around their necks. Maybe there was a staff member with a clipboard shuttling people about as the group spends five minutes looking at Something Amazing before being shuttled back on the bus?
If any part of that was true for you, then you’re in for a great surprise.
These days, small group specialist operators come in all shapes and sizes. At Another World Adventures, we partner with those that specialise in genuine adventure. Blow your mind kind of adventures. Not a clipboard in sight!
Travelling in a small group has many benefits including …
Connecting with a group of like-minded people.
These are all people interested in experiencing the same places as you. If you’ve selected an adventure with a bit of challenge and work, they become your cheerleaders and your family. Sharing the accomplishments and processing the difficulties. You’ll never miss a great trip again because your friends ‘couldn’t get the time off’.
You save money.
Fact. It is much cheaper to split the cost of permits, fuel, accommodation and local guides with a few friendly faces than on your own.
Group tours provide a great balance of solo experiences and group expeditions.
The operators we work with don’t simply shuttle you from place to place – they work hard to create an unforgettable experience for you. This includes a balance of challenge and ease, work and relaxation, down time and group time, as well as covering ground and digging in.
REALLY get off the beaten track.
Whilst it is of course possible to have a fantastic authentic experience whilst travelling solo, if you have limited time and resources you’re most likely going to find yourself following the guide book and ending up at the same places as everyone else. A really good small group adventure can ensure you see those places the guide book doesn’t know about and experience them with local guides who can tell you much more about the destination than a book ever can.
