Important information

How are you doing with travel in times of Corona?

You can easily book all our trips for only 1 € deposit and cancel or change your booking free of charge up to 4 weeks before departure. If the trip can not take place due to Covid, you can rebook as a vaccinated person free of charge on another date or another trip or get your money back. Feel free to check out our page Covid safe travel where we have collected some FAQ around the topic.

Do you offer trip cancellation insurance?

Should you not be able to fly for health reasons, there is a Travel cancellation insurancee.g. from HanseMerkur, which (also) covers a covid infection before the start of the trip.

Can I arrive earlier or leave later?

You can individually plan a few days in advance or add a few days to all our trips, as it suits you best. Of course, we are also happy to give you tips for accommodation!

With whom do I share a double room?

By default, you will share a double room with a person of the same sex, but you are also welcome to book a single room.

What does your collaboration with local partners look like in concrete terms?

For us, supporting locals means working only with local guides, staying in local, family-run hotels, and eating at local restaurants. We often have a social/environmental cause that we incorporate into our trips (from volunteering at a wildlife rescue center in Namibia to the support of Buddhist monks in Nepal in their daily work or visiting a school in a Soviet ghost town in Kyrgyzstan and bringing soccer balls, books, pens, etc.).
