Slow Travel Adventures

Embark on sustainable journeys, where small group adventures take you off the beaten path, immersing you in deeply enriching and restorative experiences. Odysseys are crafted to encourage meaningful and mindful engagement in local communities and the environment, allowing you to learn, linger, and return home not just as a traveler, but as a storyteller with a renewed spirit.

Slow Travel Benefits

Environment

Slow travel has longer stays and reduces our carbon footprint by using more sustainable transportation such as trains, buses, and walking. It counters over-tourism by traveling off-season to lesser known destinations, reducing the negative impact on the environment. We stay in locally owned lodging prioritizing sustainability and seek restaurants with locally sourced food.

Local Community

The intention that underscores slow travel is human connection. Authentic learning experiences develop because more time is taken in the destination. We engage with local people; participating in local cooking classes, learning how ancient crafts were done, witnessing centuries-old celebrations, and discovering the richness of their culture.

Your Well-Being

We embrace an immersive and mindful approach to our journeys, a relaxed pace that enhances your well-being. A more leisurely pace can assist in increasing resilience and self-discovery. Quality time spent in nature is beneficial for your physical and emotional health. By prioritizing quality over quantity, sustainable travel is a life-enhancing activity.

We invite you to join us!

"It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn."
