Award-winning adventure tour operator, Exodus Travels, has launched a new collection of premium adventures. These new small-group trips have all the quality of the highly rated Exodus trips, with the added extra of carefully selected premium accommodation, exceptional included experiences, and award-winning named guides.


At the heart of the adventure are the award-winning named leaders, specifically chosen for their local knowledge and expertise to take guests beyond the guidebook. Filmmaker, Allan Langdalle, will take guests to the lively souks and ornate palaces of Morocco while wildlife photographer, Paul Goldstein, will track cheetahs, lions, and herds of migrating wildebeest across the grassy plains of Kenya.


In a recent survey by OnePoll*, a third of those polled stated that the most memorable place they’d stayed was because of its ‘unparalleled location’. On a premium adventure with Exodus Travels, guests can stay in a cave hotel overlooking the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, stargaze from a Bedouin camp deep in Wadi Rum and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep cruising on Halong Bay. More than 50% of those surveyed would be prepared to increase their spend on experiences while on holiday to make it more memorable.


Sam Seward, Managing Director for Exodus Travels says, “With the travel restrictions finally relaxed, customers are now, more than ever, looking to fulfil their wish lists. We are delighted to announce the launch of these premium adventures that offer our customers heightened experiences in greater comfort with expert guides and accommodation that is just as remarkable as the adventures themselves.”


To understand the human need and desire to travel, Exodus Travels has worked with psychologist and psychotherapist, Corinne Sweet, who says: “People are more than ready for a reward after over two years of stress and uncertainty, so Premium Adventures provides just the ticket for psychological and physical renewal and reset.  Not only are adventurous travellers desperate for a change of scene, but also have the need to stretch themselves and re-experience the wonders of the world.  It is a way of reconnecting with their true selves and with what really makes life worth living”.
