Costa Ricas La Fortuna Tabacon Hot Springs resort with guests sitting in a pool between thermally heated waterfalls

Ziplining through cloud forests and swimming in waterfalls in Costa Rica

This nine-day Costa Rica adventure strikes the perfect balance between exploration and relaxation.

You’ll also go white water rafting on the Balsa River, soak in hot springs, and have an opportunity to go ziplining through Monteverde Cloud Forest. In Tamarindo, a trendy town on the Pacific coast, you can learn to surf, relax your body and mind in a yoga class, or head out on an optional mountain biking adventure.

Gergeti Trinity Church near the Village Of Gergeti in Georgia on a Spring Day with snowy mountains behind

Hiking to remote villages and churches in rural Georgia

Georgia, at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, boasts snow-capped mountains, an eclectic mix of cultures and a proud culinary heritage, which you’ll experience on this immersive nine-day Culture Trip adventure, accompanied by a local insider. While hiking through the tranquil forests of Lagodekhi National Park, close to the border with Russia and Azerbaijan, you may be lucky enough to spot golden eagles, wild boars, or possibly even bears and wolves. You’ll also trek to the postcard-worthy Gergeti Trinity Church, which sits on top of a grassy ridge, framed by the jagged peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, and visit the tiny, remote village of Juta – one of the highest altitude settlements in the region.

A group of hikers walk the bush in Seoraksan National Park in Gangwondo Province, Korea

Go from pulsating cities to majestic mountains in South Korea

Think of Korea and you might think of the neon-lit streets of Seoul, or even the pungent seafood markets of Busan, but there’s so much natural splendour to enjoy here too. You’ll get to discover both sides of South Korea on this 10-day adventure, starting and ending in the capital city. You’ll get up close to the North Korean border at the Demilitarized Zone, hike the rich forested mountains of Seoraksan National Park, and cycle through the ancient city of Gyeongju. You’ll even get the chance to learn martial arts and meditation at a rural Buddhist Temple – all that and more, served with plenty of bibimbap and a hearty shot of soju.
