Across Exodus Travels‘ varied portfolio of guided small group adventures, there are plenty of opportunities for travellers to go somewhere out of the ordinary, learn a new skill, experience a different way of living and escape the everyday. What’s more, as well as enriching the lives of those who travel, the tour operator firmly believes the experience should improve life for the people and places visited too.
Here are Exodus Travels’ top four trips to take with an added ‘feel good factor’.
VISIT SUSTAINABLE COSTA RICA
Feel good factor: Explore biological diversity and support local communities
Set to become carbon neutral in 2020, Costa Rica is one of Lonely Planet’s top ten countries to visit this year. The country is known as a pioneer for sustainability with 90% of its energy coming from renewable sources. Corcovado National Park is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth containing 2.5% of the planet’s biodiversity in only 0.001% of its surface area. Travellers to Costa Rica can be assured that their visit will have as minimal environmental impact as possible and that thriving ecotourism projects will support local communities through employment and income generation.
DISCOVER TRANQUILITY IN JORDAN
Feel good factor: Sleep under the stars in a desert camp
Trying something new is a popular resolution and this Exodus Travels tour of Jordan gives travellers the opportunity to get away from it all with a night under the stars in the desert of Wadi Rum. The desert skies are unpolluted by light so the stargazing is mesmerising and the lack of any noise gives a sense true remoteness and peace. For a chance to experience weightlessness, a night is also spent at the Dead Sea to float in the thick saline waters.
SPIRITUALITY IN THE HIMALAYA
Feel good factor: A spiritual journey to the base of the world’s highest mountain
Budding adventurers can take on a new challenge and breathe in the fresh mountain air of the Himalaya with Exodus Travels’ trek to Everest Base Camp. The 12-day trek takes travellers on a spiritual journey passing Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind and mani stones lining the trails. As well as reaching Base Camp, there is the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5545m) for a magnificent view of the world’s highest mountain.
REINVIGORATING WALKING IN PORTUGAL
Feel good factor: Re-energise, refresh and reset walking one of Europe’s most beautiful coasts
Atlantic winds, rugged coastal scenery and a wild natural landscape contribute to making this walking holiday truly reinvigorating. This remote south west corner of Europe offers some of the continent’s best-preserved coastlines. Rota Vicentina, one of Portugal’s most pristine walking trails, follows wild and unspoiled beaches, towering cliffs and remote whitewashed villages.
