Supplier: Exodus Travels
Exodus Travels has launched a new collection of carefully-crafted micro-tours designed with busy young professionals in mind.
Called ‘Exodus Edits’, the collection, which is catered to travellers in their 30s and 40s, comprises 22 trips ranging from four to 13 days in length. All itineraries are locally-led and include unique accommodations such as converted monasteries, mountainside refuges and boutique hotels, as well as culinary experiences, cultural exploration and outdoor activities such as kayaking with penguins in South Africa, and cycling in Vietnam.
“Workplace burnout is a real problem, and the average employee only has about 15-20 paid days off each year so we’ve got to make them count,” said Robin Brooks, Exodus Travels’ Marketing Director.
“Exodus Edits were created so busy young professionals can recharge, experience transformative moments alongside like-minded individuals and forge a deeper connection with the world around them, without using all their vacation days at once.”
Here are a few of the new Exodus Edits adventures for 2020:
