Our passion is for off-the-beaten path, the unknown, the unusual and quirky mixed with adventure and nature. We love remote and pristine environments and working to benefit local communities. Nothing embodies this more than the last frontier of South America: Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana.
But we aren’t averse to a bit of luxury either and so we have merged some of the best Caribbean hotels into our carefully planned trips, to add a touch of indulgence. Even in the Caribbean we feature less-known islands and search for the unexpected treasures that you won’t find easily.
We love to mix adventure, nature, wildlife and culture and throw in unique and unusual cuisines along with a dose of exciting personalities to create a fascinating and immersive experience.
Our team can create customised tours ranging from soft adventure journeys where the pace is comfortable and experiences rich, through to wild-country expeditions for the most intrepid explorers. Or choose from one of our carefully crafted itineraries designed to showcase the very best of our region.
If you are after a very particular experience, our knowledgeable Tour Planners can custom design a journey based on your interests, budget and requirements. Not sure and need ideas? We have a wide range of pre-packaged tours from general interest through to specialist birding tours to chose from or to create the foundation to personalise your journey. If you like small group adventures, our scheduled departures in Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana might offer the perfect solution.
