  • Brand-new Portuguese Africa tour

    Posted on March 11th, 2013 admin No comments

    Mozambique, Angola, Namibia, Sao Tome, Principe & Cabo Verde

    With parts of North Africa unsettled during the recent past and most of Southern and East Africa very much on the regular tourist circuits, we have worked hard to put together a new tour to some of Africa’s least visited countries. This exploratory itinerary takes you to places where tourism is in a completely embryonic stage. Mozambique and Angola have had a troubled history but are now completely safe for group travel and have good hotels and lodges while the island nations of Sao Tome & Principe and Cape Verde remain two of Africa’s most peaceful nations. Johannesburg in South Africa and Windhoek in Namibia provide welcome and convenient transit points.

    -Cultural and historical legacies of Portuguese presence in Africa, one of the world’s first great empires
    -Game-viewing safaris in some of Africa’s most remote and least-visited places
    -Huge range of landscapes, climates, wildlife, languages and cultures
    -Great variety in local cuisines, many with intriguing influences from Europe and Africa
    -Friendly local peoples, as yet unaccustomed to mass tourism

  • Adventures Abroad’s tours of Canada

    Posted on July 9th, 2012 admin No comments

    After perfecting the recipe for successful cultural, active, educational and custom group tours around the world, Adventures Abroad is now implementing that same winning formula in North America. The result is Canada Vacation Tours (; our thrilling series of vacations that take advantage of North America’s stellar landscapes and attractions, its fascinating cultures and its proud heritage. Whether you’re looking for a city break in Vancouver, Toronto or Quebec, a day cruise to Victoria and the Gulf Islands, a wilderness tour to see polar bears, whales and grizzlies or a world-famous, once-in-a-lifetime train journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer into the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Canada Vacation Tours by Adventures Abroad should be your first destination.

  • North Korea added to the destination roster

    Posted on June 22nd, 2012 admin No comments

    We are delighted to announce a brand new series of tours to North Korea, a landmark ‘first’ for the company, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year. The new North Korea itineraries provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most secretive and intriguing countries in the world; an organized tour is the only way to visit the DPRK—there is no alternative.

    North Korea is the second atypical destination to be added to Adventures Abroad’s tour schedule in 2012; Iraqi Kurdistan has been offered since January and has since seen two successful tours conclude to rave reviews.

    “How is it we can regularly put together ‘off-the-beaten-track’ tours that other operators can’t? Because to us, it’s familiar territory; Adventures Abroad has a quarter-century of experience creating and running tours to far-flung lands,” said Product Manager Rick Unrau, who went on a reconnaissance trip to Iraqi Kurdistan before spearheading the project to create the itineraries. “We were among the first North American operators to run tours to Yemen the 1990s, then Libya, Iran and Syria when they were accessible, and our current schedule includes less-visited destinations like Indonesia, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, the Caucasus and West Africa. We are meticulous in our research and uncompromising when it comes to client safety. We know what we’re doing.”
