West Africa: Ghana, Togo, Benin
West Africa: Ghana, Togo, Benin

Ghana is a bright light and vibrant song in West Africa. Prosperous and pro-American, Ghana gives you a sense of energetic people pleased to have you as a guest. Ghana was formerly known as the Gold Coast, and gold is still an important export. Named after an ancient kingdom dating to the 4th Century, the present day country does not correspond to the geographical boundaries of Ancient Ghana, but there are still plenty of local kings, with significant ceremonial power and traditional wealth. Ghana as a nation is democratic and often viewed as a political and economic model for Africa. Togo and Benin, lying to the east of Ghana, are smaller but still attractive to visitors. Commercial and subsistence agriculture are the main sources of employment and the rural countryside offers photographic and contemplative opportunities. Traditional crafts, music, drama and spiritual practice provide a focus to any trip.

The Great Wild South
The Great Wild South

Get up close to Australia’s wildlife in its natural environment and see the scenery of eucalyptus tree forests and amazing rock formations for which Australia is famous. Many people find themselves never seeing a kangaroo in the wild in Australia, let alone a koala, kookaburra, dingo, or platypus - but not so with Journeys! You’ll meet the locals (people and animals!) and experience real Aussie culture. We have planned this excursion in the southern areas specifically for Australia’s summer months (winter for us in the northern hemisphere) when weather in the Northern Territory and the tropical coast is extremely hot and rainy - although it’s a perfect trip for any time of year. This trip perfectly compliments our Tasmania Discovery and New Zealand Deluxe Wilderness Explorer. Ask us about combining two or three of these trips!

Hidden Argentina: Northern Province
Hidden Argentina: Northern Province

Northern Argentina is part of a colorful, wind-sculpted, montane desert traversed by green river valleys. Slow-paced village life is enhanced by comfortable inns, (many recycled from colonial structures) as well as delectable local cuisine and numerous wineries. All of this makes a leisurely drive through the valleys an unforgettable experience. These are the least-seen places in Argentina. Most of the villages along the way sum up the history of the area in their archaeological and wine museums as well as the workshops of local artists and artisans. Explore colorful villages, canyon lands, and valleys of outstanding beauty. Enjoy meeting the friendly local people and take pleasure in the warm sunny days and cold nights sheltered in the most lovely hosterías and estancias.

Chomolhari Trek
Chomolhari Trek

This trek is our interpretation of the classic trek route in Bhutan. Winding its way up through the foothills, up a sheer valley, past ancient monastery fortresses and crossing two passes, the trail reaches Chomolhari Base camp at 13,251’ above sea level. Bhutan is sparsely populated and highly traditional, giving you both a sense of contact with antiquity and the spirit of the high peaks.
