Adventure Travel Agents

You might think travel agents are especially meant for traditional, sun bathing holidays. But there is a whole range of adventure travel agencies specialised in adventure travel.

One of the great things about backpacking is the freedom you experience during travelling. Nobody tells you what to do next, you're free to go wherever you want, and you only have to decide where you sleep at night and where you will go tomorrow. But, when time is scarce and you want to see many things, it's our experience that adventure travel agents give you good value for your money.

When you need to choose a travel agency, keep the following in mind:

  • Choose a company that travels with small groups. Between 10 and 20 persons is best.
  • Keep some freedom: let the company bring you from city to city (or village), but decide for yourself what to do in these places.
  • Make sure you are not forced to take excursions. It's great if they're organized, as long as you're not forced to join them.
  • Inform whether there is a guide joining you, and whether he is local or not. If so, be careful, local guides can be great, but they may not speak your language very well, and there might be some cultural differences (mañana, mañana...).

We have some experience with Dutch travel agencies, and with travel agents specialised in different regions (Africa, Russia especially). Contact us if you require some information about those.
