Travelers looking for an adventure trip often have in mind the places they’d like to go, but planning and booking trips can be outside many people’s comfort zone, dealing with unfamiliar places, suppliers, and much more.
But there’s help at the hands of specialists who know the ropes, and it may be a worthwhile choice even for people used to plan their own itineraries. I’ve been to a lot of places—49 states, 55 countries, six continents, and counting!—and I’d like to recommend my go-to adventure travel company.
Advertisements and press releases always promote companies, but with Exodus Travels, you can count my voice as another positive report without prejudice. My own Exodus experiences took me to Morocco, Greece, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Jordan.
This adventure company is a fine example of what a dedicated staff, including tour guides, can do to make your next vacation one you will always look back on with positivity.
Their latest tour offerings are in partnership with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) called Exodus RCGS Quests.
The small group tours help answer the adventurous spirits seeking opportunities to challenge themselves and expand their perspectives. The 2022 adventures offer even more opportunities to discover, learn, and explore while accompanied by world-renowned explorers, authors, photographers, and conservationists.
“We’re honored to be once again partnering with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society,” says Robin Brooks, Exodus’ Marketing Director and RCGS Fellow. “After over a year and a half of staying put and staying safe, our appetite and humankind’s innate instinct to explore is stronger than ever.”
“Further understanding of people and places, cultural heritage, and the natural environment is what contributes to the strength of the global travel community,” adds John Geiger, RCGS CEO.
That said, where will these trips take adventure travelers in 2022?
