Whilst there are plenty of fantastic adventures that can be enjoyed within a week or 2, we find that 3 week adventures allows you to go deeper, further, higher, and importantly – slower.

We’ve picked some of the very best 3 week adventures on in 2016. Forget whistle-stop tours of the key sights, these trips will allow you to get under the skin of the destinations, acclimatize to high altitudes, learn a new skill or understand a different culture.
