When we can travel again, we think we'll be all wanting to travel slowly. We don’t mean staying in one place but just allowing the time and space to soak in the atmosphere, taste your surroundings and let things to happen. Any of these trips could be adapted to suit you in any way you like. But remember; travel slow to experience more.
Ancient, wild and colourful, India should be experienced with all your the senses: the scent of the spice-filled air, the sound of the cities, the sights of landscapes you never knew existed. Our mantra is always “don’t try and do too much!” At ETG, we want to ensure that you have space to discover your India and that you are comfortable and inspired while doing so. We cannot select one slow holiday for India for 2020, so here are a few ideas, all of them travelling slow:
We believe in slowing down our routes and itineraries, and Sri Lanka is no exception. It's a small island, so the temptation is to include as much as possible. Resist! This holiday suggestion will take you to those remarkable experiences that reveal the fabric of the destination, at your own pace. But every holiday should be designed around you, especially when you travel the slow way!
One fantastic way to travel slow is to stay with a local community for part of your holiday. Over the ordinary course of living, you'll gain so much insight and new friends too. It allows you to glimpse a world that many visitors to Thailand miss and assume is no longer there. You need to know how and where to look and this holiday suggestion is a great place to start.
Whether it’s by boat, train or automobile, journeying from country to country is always a proper travel experience. It’s slow travel in a nutshell: floating downriver or rattling through the countryside on an old train affords you time and space to let the magic happen. This holiday features boat journeys as well as exploring on foot and by bike. Let us know how you like to travel slow, and we can design your holiday around that.
Every travel website or guidebook out there will tell you that Bhutan is "mysterious", "enigmatic" or "unknown". But at ETG, we like to look beyond the clichés about travel in Asia. This holiday route is our attempt to get to the heart of what makes Bhutan magical, through stories, insightful experiences, hotels with a difference and much more. It's a journey you'll make your own. One thing we can promise: Bhutan will slow you down and put everything into perspective.
ETG clients tend to be an interested and curious bunch. Local wildlife is always an attraction, but you prefer to see the wildlife in its natural context and in the right way. Slow and patient is critical. Authentic wildlife experiences are not on-demand. But stick around long enough, in the right place and with the right people and the magic will slowly reveal itself.
We believe in travel that challenges and changes us – but also provides a break from the hectic everyday. Expect special hotels, a few surprises, and space for your own exploration.
Step away from coaches and flag-flying groups. Our privately-guided experiences are designed to help you connect with the destination – not just box-tick the main sights.
Join a community of passionate travellers and travel experts that extends from London to Colombo and beyond. We are all united by our desire to connect as people.
Full protection, someone to call 24/7, and all logistics taken care of. Plus, you can rest assured that our holidays are ethical with respect to the local communities and environment.
