Blissful Bali

This little Indonesian paradise has become a haven for spiritual travellers the world over, but you don’t have to worry about tourist traps or overly Westernised experiences on our 12-day trip to Bali. The tour is defined by three pillars of wellness travel – outdoor adventure, enriching cultural experiences and some well-earned relaxation. On the outdoorsy front you’ll trek through magical rice paddy forests, snorkel with sea turtles and ascend Mount Batur at sunrise, for awe-inspiring views of the island at dawn. Cultural experiences include crafting your own handmade offering to place in a sacred temple, taking part in an authentic local cooking class and experiencing a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony. Towards the end of our itinerary you’ll discover pure tropical bliss as we escape to the tiny island of Gili Trawangan, where a luxurious beach resort awaits. Spa time, pool time or beach time – the choice is yours!

Bubbling pools at Volcano Lodge and Springs in the Arenal volcano region of Costa Rica

The Real Costa Rica

We’ll show you three very different sides to wellness across three totally different landscapes in this eight-day tour of rural Costa Rica. First up is Arenal Volcano National Park, the fiery mountain at the core of this region powers an endless supply of magical hot springs. You’ll get to soak in its warm geothermal waters both in our hotel and at Ecotermales Fortuna. After that we’ll escape high into the mountains and the cloud forests of Monteverde. Our country lodge is truly remote, and the natural beauty surrounding us will be truly life affirming. We’ll wrap things up in Tamarindo, a Pacific beach town with impeccable surf vibes – the perfect place to try some yoga, hit the waves or simply chill on the beach.

Trinity Gergeti Church, Kazbegi, Georgia

Georgia and the Caucasus

Never underestimate the healing power of the mountains. The high Caucasus surrounding Georgia, on the fringes of Europe and Asia, are utterly spellbinding. They act as a kind of impenetrable shield from the real world, as you get to immerse yourself in one of the world’s most ancient cultures, and some of its most spectacular scenery, too. This nine-day tour very much takes the fresh air approach to wellness, with a trek through the luscious forests of Lagodekhi National Park and a hike to the fairytale Gergeti Church, found in the dramatic shadow of Europe’s fifth tallest peak. You’ll also indulge in hearty Georgian cuisine and learn about the world’s oldest winemaking techniques. By the time we reach our last day your mind and soul will have been thoroughly soothed, but what about the body? Well, that’s when Tbilisi’s sulphur baths come into play – these hot springs have soaked and steamed weary travellers since the fifth century.
