Boundless Journeys Gets Back to Basics


STOWE, Vt - Award-winning adventure tour company Boundless Journeys ( is renowned for creative, well-planned small group adventures to some of the world's most exotic and exciting destinations. A collection of special, one-time departures for 2009 reflect a "Back-to-Basics" attitude - offering Boundless Journeys' signature, award-winning travel at a value-oriented price.

At a time when many tour operators are scaling back offerings or deeply discounting their usual trips, Boundless Journeys has taken a different approach, as company President, Matt Holmes, explains: "This collection of trips reflects a very appropriate feeling that our travelers seem to have these days - they still want to travel, see the world, and have meaningful experiences along the way, but they are a little less concerned about thread count and wifi-access at each hotel. It's a perfect time to focus on the core of what our trips have always been about: exciting, active itineraries, memorable cultural encounters, and authentic experiences every day."

Find out more about these remarkable journeys at remarkable prices by calling 1-800-941-8010 or by visiting the Boundless Journeys web site,

Boundless Journeys' "Back-to-Basics" small group tours get off the beaten tourist track to make the most of our active itineraries, cultural encounters, and signature authentic experiences at the best possible price. Accompanied by Boundless Journeys' veteran local guides, you'll travel comfortably (i.e. mostly private transportation and all accommodations with private baths) and meet local people every day.

Like Boundless Journeys' regularly scheduled tours, these "Back-to-Basics" trips are for those that prefer to travel with a spirit of spontaneity and a flexible attitude, and want to be active in areas that few other travelers see. These tours are designed to deliver the same exceptional experiences that our guests have become accustomed to, while incorporating elements that offer a tremendous value.

While Back-to-Basics accommodation choices reflect the local flavor and always offer private baths, they may lack some of the extensive amenities that are found on a typical Boundless Journeys adventure. For these trips, Boundless Journeys has focused on location, service, and charm, but not necessarily every 4- or 5-star convenience.
The meals that included are of the same high standard Boundless Journeys always has on their tours, typically offering a full selection of a la carte menu items. They are memorable experiences that will add to your enjoyment and understanding of your chosen destination. However, fewer meals are included on these trips to allow you to venture out on your own, and keep your expenses within your budget.
