At RGE, there's nothing we like more than chatting to our lovely customers about their fantastic travel plans which, in turn, inspires us to keep coming up with exciting new travel itineraries - and this quarter we've added some whoppers to the list. Looking for a new trip to get pepped up about? Then you're in the right place!
If you read our blog on Costa Rica earlier this year, you'll already understand why we're so excited about this trip. Not only will you get to explore an incredible country with a serene tropical backdrop, you'll also get to spend some time taking part in a turtle conservation project where you'll be helping out with beach patrols and getting hatchlings safely into the ocean - an indescribably rewarding experience. You'll travel through the country, getting off the beaten track and staying at outstanding locations like La Fortuna, at the foot of the Arenal Volcano, and Monteverde, a spectacular cloud forest high up in the mountains. You'll get to test your head for heights on a zip-lining tour, visit coffee plantations and discover the best bits of San Jose. It's an awesome all-rounder!
India is a hugely popular destination with world-travellers, and it's not difficult to see why. This trip combines lively city exploration with a rewarding volunteer placement, and a once-in-a-lifetime trek through the Himalayas. You'll take part in meditation and yoga classes set against some truly spectacular landscape, and tour India's tea capital and surrounding monasteries. On your volunteer project, you'll be helping to restore the community childcare centre and get to know the children and families that rely so heavily on it. With time to explore the capital independently as well, this trip ticks all the boxes as far as comprehensive travel experiences go.
We don't go flinging the word 'ultimate' around for no reason, so you know when we call a trip Ultimate Vietnam, it's something to get excited about. We've packed so many inclusions into this tour, you might need a little rest after just reading about them! This is your chance to visit one of the most enchanting countries in Asia and discover a whole world of incredible locations steeped in history, tradition, and natural beauty. From open-top Jeep rides, sand dune tours, royal palace and temple visits, junk boat cruising, National Park and UNESCO World Heritage site trips, beach partying and a tonne of other activities, this trip is the ultimate travel adventure.
There's that word again! And you can bet your bottom dollar this trip lives up to its name. Taking you on a whirlwind tour through five very different locations in Cambodia, you'll travel round the country from north to south, staying in some pretty cool (literally, air-conditioned) accommodation - all of which have their own swimming pools, apart from the Koh Rong Samloem guesthouse - that one has its own private bay - nice, huh? You'll get to visit some of the country's most poignant historic sites, watch the sunrise over the world-famous Angkor Wat, take a magical boat tour followed by a beach barbecue and snorkelling session, splash around on the river at Kampot, and learn to cook in Siem Reap, plus a whole load of other fun activities.
OK, so as you may have gathered by now, we have an 'ultimate' series of Asia trips online at the moment - you know why? Because totally-amazing-mega-awesome-epic-travel-adventures-in-Asia was a bit of a mouthful. This trip is all about Thailand's gorgeous tropical isles, simply put, it's a sun-worshipper's dream, beachy paradise if you will. You'll get to spend a bit of time in the capital as well, so if you need your city-fix - no problem. Once you've had your fill of temples, palaces, canals, and heaving streets in Bangkok, we'll jump on a flight (included in the cost of your trip) down to Railay Beach - our first white sand resort, and then make our way round to Koh Phi Phi, Koh Pha Ngan, Koh Samui, and Koh Tao. With plenty of water activities, boat tours, a marine park trip, traditional Thai massage, and epic parties on the beach, this trip is perfectly suited to travellers looking for a laidback, fun-in-the-sun type of getaway.
Outdoorsy types, this one's for you! Think camping under the stars, trekking through national parks framed by snow-peaked mountains, rustic Canadian ranches, waterfalls, lakes, and wildlife - and some awesome new buddies to share the whole experience with. You'll get to travel through ridiculously beautiful landscape, take part in a load of adrenalin-fuelled optional activities, and spot some incredible wildlife on the way. You'll get to bond with the group over campfires and drinks in the evenings, share cooking duties, and be part of a team, which only ever makes travel experiences all that more special - want a trip of a lifetime? Think you've just found it.
