Adventure travel is becoming mainstream, and is increasingly losing the element that makes it so special – real adventure. Too often the promises made aren’t kept – how often have you read that you’ll get to ‘meet the locals’ and been disappointed in the brief encounter that’s delivered, or that you’ll stay in a ‘local home’ to discover it’s little more than a guesthouse? We believe that your time overseas is precious and that you deserve more. Off the beaten track for us is much more than just an overused marketing slogan – we really will take you to places where few other tourists have visited.
