When we say ‘light adventure’, what we really mean is we can create an experience featuring a dash of excitement or, for the more hardcore, can put together an unforgettable opportunity for the trekking enthusiast, diving devotee or those who want to truly escape.

Some of these activities are easily accessible, making them a perfect addition to a more traditional itinerary, while others are far removed from modern facilities, home comforts and developed infrastructure.

The array of choice is vast, but by way of whetting your appetite, how about a few days aboard a luxury yacht, sailing Myanmar’s magnificent Mergui archipelago? Or perhaps you'd prefer camping amidst the majestic Angkor-era ruins and temples of Cambodia, or trekking in the mountains of Nepal? A safari in the superb National Parks of Sri Lanka might suit your needs, or you could ditch the car and hop on a mountain bike to truly open up hidden corners where tourists rarely tread.

Tell us about an activity you enjoy or region you’ve always wanted to explore, and we’ll do the rest.

Our Light Adventure Experiences explained

Many of our itineraries feature a little wilderness, from a few hours of stretching your legs in a Cambodian National Park, or a day of kayaking to break up a cross-country journey through Laos. But those with adrenalin to burn might want to add a little (or a lot!) more action, so we’ve built a selection of Light Adventure experiences to challenge and energise even the hardiest hill-walkers and enthusiastic climbers.

  • Add them onto our existing itineraries, or choose a few that we can tailor into your ideal, custom-built holiday.
