10 Years of New Frontiers

A Letter from Rob:

More than a decade ago, Co-founder Steven Larkin and I embarked on a journey to offer adventurous and meaningful gay tours that give back to the communities we visit (click here for the full story).

Here we are today with hundreds of tours under our belt, 60+ countries visited, and countless friendships formed. All thanks to our loyal travellers, many of whom are now family. Together, we’ve scaled mountains, explored cultures, conquered the open seas, devoured street food, and had some of the most, um, interesting dinnertime conversations (said conversations being a personal highlight).

2019 marks ten years since we touched down in Bangkok on our first tour and I am absolutely thrilled to announce ten new tours to celebrate the milestone. Curated by yours truly and hosted by members of our team, these are set to be spectacular sojourns.

So, take your pick: polar dip with Kevin in Antarctica, hike Mount Pico in the Azores with Carl, journey through the Canadian Rockies with Lino, or get soaking wet with me during Thailand’s Songkran Festival, where it all began. 

Scroll down for a complete list of our anniversary tours.

Cheers to Ten Years!

6 Tips to Tackle Everest Base Camp

Everest Gay TravelWe’ve seen it before.

Caught up in a resolution, a mid-life crisis, or boundless optimism, someone books our 14-day Everest Base Camp hike. “I can do this.” they assure themselves. “Can’t I?”

Weeks before the climb, their confidence has withered. They weep openly and hyperventilate. They haven’t even purchased the hiking boots that should already be broken in!

If you’re thinking, ‘that sounds like me’, spark some incense, listen to a guided meditation and CTFD (calm the **** down). You *can* do this. Everest’s reputation is worse than her bite. If you’re reasonably fit (to use the guides’ own words), you truly can do this with training and preparation.

It entails two big days on a bike, but you’ll be rewarded with sweet sips and gourmet stops along the way. Here’s a taste of what awaits.
