Georgia and the Caucasus

Treks in the Caucasus Mountains to secluded churches are just the starting point of this nine-day small-group tour, where you’ll explore remote valleys and national parks in lesser-visited Georgia – a country at the crossroads between Europe and Asia. Begin with the bathhouses and breads of the capital of Tbilisi, before visiting the Kakheti countryside to see how wine has been produced in Georgia for thousands of years. Next up, the forests of Lagodekhi National Park, followed by a journey to Stepantsminda for snow-clad mountain peaks and glaciers.

Japan by Train: The Grand Tour

Japan’s cities sum up its variety: from neon-lit Tokyo with its futuristic feel to calm Kyoto and its centuries-old geisha culture and foodie Osaka – brimming with dozens of dishes that simply don’t appear on your local Japanese restaurant menu. This 12-day small-group Rail Trip starts with ramen and sushi in Osaka, before you hurtle cross country on the bullet train with stops in Hiroshima, Kyoto, Mount Fuji and finally, Tokyo. Bamboo forests, atmospheric Alps and steamy onsen create moments of calm.
