Our upcoming itineraries


Melons & Grapes - Grand Afghan Tour

Dates: 26th September - 10th October 2015
Cost: £2450
Departure guaranteed
Each Autumn we run a trip to Afghanistan and we think it is the perfect time to visit. Summer can be blisteringly hot and winter icy cold. Spring has its charms, but for us Autumn is the best, and all because of the fruit. How a land that appears to be made entirely of bare rock can produce melons as large as beach balls and grapes bursting with juice is one of life’s great mysteries. This trip shows the best of Afghanistan with as much fresh fruit thrown in as you can eat.

Marathon of Afghanistan Autumn 2015

Dates: October 2015
Price: TBC
This package offers travel and entrance to the very first international marathon in Afghanistan. The marathon will take place in the Bamian province, amidst the mighty mountains of the Hindu Kush in central Afghanistan. The astonishingly beautiful valley, a UNESCO world heritage site, is recognised as one of the safest provinces in the country and remains almost completely untouched by violence. This first race will be used as a reconnaissance trip for the following year when the team hope to run another more established race.
