Want more than the usual fly and flop with a good novel? Embrace a whole new type of trip as part of a small group of like-minded travellers, daring to try new activities in exciting destinations for the ultimate rush. From entering Petra as the sunrise kisses its pink perfection, to hiking across the Himalayas and cave-rafting in the Thai countryside, if you want to challenge your holiday status quo, these Epic Trips are the way to go.
1 . Beyond Petra: Discovering Jordan’s Rugged Side

How many people do you know who have hiked, camped and snorkelled through the Jordanian desert? Our nine-day adventure reveals a lesser-known side of this welcoming country, promising an itinerary full of surprises. Delve into the street food scene in Amman, dine on Jordanian wine, hike through red-tipped mountains, then cool off in the salt-saturated Red Sea before falling asleep under the stars. Lace-up those boots again to enter rose-coloured, Unesco-listed Petra, a heritage beauty everyone will love.

2 . Welcome to the Jungle: Exploring Northern Thailand

Look forward to jungle treks and reviving swims through cooling waterfalls on this 10-day revelation of authentic northwest Thailand. Nothing quite prepares you for feeding an elephant hand to mouth – but that’s what you’ll do in an elephant sanctuary on this trip – after watching the sun rise over Doi Inthanon, the highest mountain in Thailand. Slip underground to raft through the largest cave in the country before a soporific soak in the balmy Sai Ngam hot springs, large enough to swim in. Hungry? You’ll sample street food specialities in Chiang Mai and feasts of sticky rice, pork and chilli with deep-fried pork crackling.

3 . Himalayan Escapades and Wildlife Encounters in Nepal

Whether it’s a rickshaw ride through the labyrinthine streets of Kathmandu or a rural hike through paddies and farmland with the Annapurna looming large, moments from our mesmerising 11-day Nepalese adventure will stay with you for years to come. Foodies will be in their element as they undertake a traditional momo dumpling cooking class, taught by refugees in a camp. A certain hit at your next dinner party back home. The thought of white-water rafting on the Seti River might give you butterflies – but the adrenaline rush will give you a flavour of how you’ll feel if you’re lucky enough to spot a Bengal tiger in Chitwan National Park.
