Whether for recreation, work, education, volunteerism, wanderlust, health or faith, travel is the movement of a traveler (or travelers) from one location to another. Reasons, durations, distances and durations of travel are virtually infinite as are the means of traveling.

Luxury Adventure Travel?

Luxury and adventure travel - two elements that are not quite as divergent as mainstream opinion would have it. Swashbuckling adventurism traditionally having been the premise of the wealthy, this has been much less so in recent times, with adventure travel almost necessitating a degree of roughing it out. The genre of luxury adventure travel, however, combines the best of luxury with the spirit of adventurism.

In our earliest trips, we saw the many famous cities and sights that are on every tourist’s itinerary, but with each visit we ventured further off the beaten track.
