Safaris, sailing, trekking, camping, biking and even ’volun-touring’ - adventure travel comes in many forms.
As vacationers grow tired of typical all-inclusive resorts in the same destinations over and over, adventure tourism to the less explored parts of the world has exploded to now be one of the fastest growing arms of the tourism industry, with small group adventure tour companies, cruise lines and others offering exciting adventure tour packages for explorers of all ages.
From big game viewing in the parks of Africa to live-aboard dive excursions in the Galapagos Islands, adventure trips can take place on land, the sea, and if you count hot air ballooning over magical Cappadocia, even in the sky!
Flight Centre has partnered with some of the industry’s top adventure tour providers, niche suppliers and youth tour operators to offer just about anyone the experience of a lifetime.
Canada’s G Adventures has quickly become one of the biggest adventure tour operators around, escorting small groups that average just 12 travellers across all 7 continents, featuring 8 travel styles to choose from. Their recent partnership with National Geographic has taken their trips to another level, with higher-end accommodations, intriguing itineraries and access to world-class local experts and guides.
Intrepid Travel invites guests along to explore like a local, as they operate their small group expeditions in over 100 countries worldwide. Enriching adventures are available in a dozen different touring styles, focusing on everything from gastronomy and festivals to family focused trips and sustainable wildlife encounters. Their popular Urban Adventures take visitors on the ultimate walking tour, led by a local, to show off their city in a fun and intimate experience.
For anyone wanting a more rustic travel adventure, look no further than On the Go Tours. Trek the Inca Trail to mystical Machu Picchu or let the Northern Lights in Iceland mesmerize, awaken your senses in India or eat your way through delicious China; On the Go Tours specialize in a range of touring types, all providing true, life-changing experiences.
For those 18-35ish, we offer a range of tour operators that keep the fun level high and stress level non-existent, all while exploring some of the world’s most sought-after destinations. Topdeck Travel, Contiki Tours and Geckos Adventures have all mastered the art of balancing an immersive, educational tour experience with all the fun you can handle.
In addition to the above, active Exodus, intimate Peregrine and flexible Busabout are all on tap at Flight Centre. For more information and to find the adventure best suited to you, visit any of our Flight Centre Canada stores or give us a call!
Adventure deals aren’t easy to come by as tours often sell out before they can be discounted but sales do happen, and we’ve got them all. Their smaller group size means that only 12-25 guests go out at a time (or a third to a half of a regular motor coach tour) and there are only so many tours that operate annually. In booking your adventure tour, aim for as much advance notice as possible to get the tour you want.
Before booking, it is good to determine your travel style. Adventure tours can be everything from camping to 5-star, and from mildly active to some pretty tough trekking. Make sure you are physically up to the rigours of the tour you are choosing.
And lastly, why not book with someone who’s travelled with your chosen tour operator? That’s right, many of our agents have been there and done that, sometimes even on the exact same tour as the one you’re wanting to book. Flight Centre’s Adventure Specialty Stores are staffed by experts in the field to help you through the booking process, right up until you depart. As most tours are priced and booked without airfare, you’ll be in the perfect place to add a flight too!
