We have a number of upcoming tours with space available, or with spaces added, and with many of them heading to various points in Asia, and nearby countries.
This is a highlight-oriented regional exploration of Vietnam, Laos, & Cambodia for those looking for a very nicely-priced multi-destination trip in a nice neat +/- 2-week package. Reliable and convenient regional flights link together a thrilling series of iconic sites – Luang Prabang (Laos), Halong Bay, Hoi An, Saigon (Vietnam), Siem Reap and the temples at Angkor. Local cuisines, comfortable 3-star hotels, lots of inclusions, and expert leadership round this out to the quintessential SE Asian experience.

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND – SPACE ADDED!
Most people harbour a particular image of Australia, such as the Opera House or Ayers Rock, yet these famous icons do scant justice to the richness of Australia’s natural treasures and its cultural diversity. Australia is an enormous country, and it is this sheer vastness, and the friction between the ancient land steeped in Aboriginal lore and the New World culture being heaped upon it, which gives Australia much of its character. New Zealand is as compact as Australia is huge, but nature has packed amazing variety into this little package. From the sub-tropical and lush bush of Northland, to the beauty of Fiordland National Park, once described by Rudyard Kipling as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”.
This combo is so popular this year we’ll we running a second departure for both!

ESSENTIAL CHILE – from top to bottom!
Though technically spring in Chile, this incredible tour of this incredible country will deliver all four seasons on this comprehensive 21-day exploration – indeed you may experience several seasons in just one day! Last year, our long-time head office destination specialist and senior tour leader, Martin Charlton, led this stupendous journey through Chile, from the altiplano of the Atacama region to the sophisticated winelands near Santiago, the wind-swept plains of Patagonia to the subtropical splendour and mystique of Easter Island, this exceptional itinerary covers the gamut over the full length of this fantastic country. Martin’s eye for detail and logistics give us a freshly tweaked and improved itinerary and some spectacular photos, which you can now view via our new “Gallery” feature on our website!

THE BALTICS & NORDIC EXPLORER
We are close to confirming the fall running of a full regional experience that brought Scandinavia back onto our European roster back in 2008. The first week of this 3-week sojourn takes us through the charming and diverse Baltic neighbours of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Hopping across the water to Helsinki, we begin the Scandinavian portion of our journey, with stops in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. Our modes of travel are as varied as the region—private coach, train, and comfortable overnight ferry. A major highlight is travelling via Norway’s famous Flamsbana, the Flam Railway, one of the world’s most spectacular rail journeys. Have less time? We have created a shorter option featuring only Scandinavia.

SICILY & SOUTHERN ITALY
We recently responded to traveller feedback and the advice of our Tour Leaders and altered this itinerary to ease up the pace of this highlight-packed tour; reviews have been so positive, and the itinerary now reads so well that our ever-popular late summer date is starting to book up for 2017! Sicily is an island of great natural beauty—along the shorelines, spectacular rocky cliffs meet the deep blue, tranquil waters of the Mediterranean, while the rolling hills of the interior are awash in fragrant orange and lemon trees. Though only 4 km separate it from the mainland of Italy, this short distance has given the island enough unique history and personality for an entire continent. This distinction becomes apparent to us once our journey crosses the water to visit the highlights of the southern mainland—the Greek temples of Paestum, mysterious Pompeii, and sublime Sorrento, legendary abode of the Sirens.

ATLANTIC CANADA – CLOSING SOON!
Summer is a busy time in Atlantic Canada, especially this year as Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. As such, space grows scare and our deadline looms for joining us on this special journey. The timing can’t be better! With the weak Canadian dollar—Canadians looking to stay closer to home can finally experience their own country at a relatively good value, and US visitors can take advantage of the best exchange rate in over 10 years! Last summer’s inaugural running of this very special itinerary covering three provinces was a huge hit—travellers enjoyed our small group concept in a place dominated by large coach tours, and the fact that our tour was able to access out-of-the-way places where big coaches cannot venture.

There is still time to consider the fall departure of our ever-popular foray through Hong Kong and Eastern China is a guaranteed trip with last minute space still available. Past Adventures Abroad travellers to China have appreciated our small-group concept at a destination where much group travel is dominated by huge busloads of 50+ tourists who spend much of their time just getting on and off the bus and being herded into souvenir shops. Our Tour Leaders and local guides put the culture, sites, history and monuments of China first to ensure that your experience is as in-depth, authentic, and personalized as it can be. As a small group, we can get much more done in a day without feeling rushed, get to know our fellow travellers, and dine out at local restaurants to avoid the massive and characterless hotel buffet!

We are very close to guaranteeing our 2-week, full circumnavigation of Ireland, including both the Republic and Northern Island, for September. Though Ireland is rarely associated with more “exotic” destinations, this is a delightfully compelling journey with surprising variety in art and architecture, culture, history, cuisines, landscapes, accents, and, of course, pubs! This itinerary showcases the good, the bad, and the ugly of this ancient and modern land and, in any season, its famous ‘40 shades of green.’
