5 Explorations Experiences You’ll Remember Forever

Welcome to Small Group Travel, Reinvented

What is Explorations?

Explorations gives travellers access to the world in a truly authentic way. On these active, immersive, small group journeys, travellers connect with the cultures of the world on a deeper level in ways that are hard to replicate. The group size is kept small, no more than 19 travellers, allowing these journeys to be the most active, engaging, and rewarding experience possible.

What makes Explorations different?

The experiences are beyond expectation. Explorations experiences are unique and varied – some are active and adventurous, some reveal the heart of a culture, and some have the power to change lives.

Here are five Explorations experiences that, once experienced, are impossible to forget:

Soak in the local culture. 

You can’t leave Iceland without taking a dip in the Blue Lagoon (and you will!), but, you also came to Iceland for an immersive local experience. We’ll head to where the locals go for a revitalising soak in mineral-rich geothermal waters—the Blue Lagoon of the North, Mývatn Nature Baths. Experience this on our Icelandic Adventure tour. 


Experience the serenity of the desert. 

A camel provides your transportation to a desert camp. As night falls, Berber drums provide the soundtrack to a delightful Moroccan feast. In the tranquil silence of the desert, drift off to sleep in a fully equipped Berber-style tent. In the morning, enjoy amazing views of the sunrise.  Experience this on our Colours of Morocco tour. 

Connect with Masai culture. 

Spend an afternoon getting to know the Masai people. You’ll be a welcomed visitor in a local village and see a slice of everyday life. Later, as you indulge in a traditional bush dinner, take in the incredible sights of a Masai dance performance. Experience this on our Plains of Africa tour.


Ignite your spirit in India’s holiest city. 

Each evening, just after dusk, the holy Dasaswamedh Ghat on the banks of the River Ganges becomes bathed in a choreographed spectacle of fire and rhythmic chants. Witness this devotional ritual as Hindu priests provide offerings to the Goddess Gang Experience this on our Mysteries of India tour.

Graze your way around Hanoi. 

After you’ve worked up an appetite walking the Old Quarter with your guide, keep walking for a street food tour that serves up some of Vietnam’s most famous dishes. Finish your delicious tour at a hidden rooftop café with gorgeous views of Hoam Kiem. Experience this on our Taste of Vietnam tour.
