Are you a spirited adventurer who likes to get off the beaten track? Cultural Explorations are the perfect way to combine spectacular places, local interactions and light physical challenges for an unforgettable experience. You have the chance to get involved with local communities, with genuine cultural experiences, unexpected wonders and the camaraderie of travelling in a small group adventure. Whether your interests lie in history, culture or wildlife, you can be sure that on these trips you are a participant, not a spectator.
During these exciting journeys there is little or no camping; instead, comfortable stays at quality hotels, local inns or well-appointed lodges where you can relax after an interesting day of travels.
While there are no specific physical prerequisites it is important that travellers are in good health and have a positive, flexible and enquiring mind in order to fully savour the myriad of experiences that are part and parcel of our journeys.
A journey by bike provides the ultimate immersion into the landscapes and culture of a country. The simple pace of cycling lends itself to meeting the locals, accessing remote monasteries and experiencing the exhilaration of freewheeling in vast valleys.

Our guided cycle tours include the use of a backup vehicle and air-conditioned passenger vehicle so you can cycle at your own pace. On a self-guided trip, the thrill is being left to your own devices, equipped with an emergency assistance number should the need arise.
