Trinity Gergeti Church, Kazbegi, Georgia

Georgia and the Caucasus – a high-altitude hike to a fairytale church

This epic little nation, nestled high in the Caucasus on the fringes of both Europe and Asia, is one of the best hiking destinations on the planet. Our nine-day Georgia trip blends outdoor adventure with local culture and cuisine. You’ll be fuelled on local delicacies, home-baked bread and sweet treats as we trek through the forests of Lagodekhi National Park, but the real hiking highlight comes in the Caucasus Mountains themselves, where we’ll embark on a stunning three-hour hike in the shadow of the towering Mount Kazbegi. Our end point is the gorgeous Gergeti Trinity Church, a fairytale structure that stands out like the most beautiful sore thumb you ever saw amid the surrounding snowy peaks. Your hard work will be rewarded with local wines and a soak in Tbilisi’s sulphur baths.

Sunrise at Mount Batur, Bali, Indonesia

Blissful Bali – rice paddy hikes and summiting a volcano

This tropical Indonesian paradise might have a reputation as a party destination and a place of spiritual retreat, but it’s also an incredible island to visit for avid hikers. We’ll introduce you to Bali with a stunning trek through rice paddies and remote villages, but the highlight undoubtedly comes on day five, when we set alarms early for a sunrise hike up Mount Batur. This 1,717m (5,633ft) volcano is the best place to watch the sunshine bathe Bali in a warm, dreamy glow. Trust us, this one’s worth the early wake-up.
