Caucasus Tours

Featured Trip: The Caucasus

Situated between Russia in the north and Iran and Turkey in the southwest lies the region best known as the Caucasus. Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia were all former Soviet Republics, each with their own rich and unique history, language and culture. We begin our journey in Baku, Azerbaijan, one of the first oil cities of the world. Natural gas vents led rise to the religion of Zoroastrianism and their fire temples, which still burn bright today.

Cuba Travel

US Citizens - Travel to Cuba is Still Restricted

Despite the latest news headlines which seem to proclaim that Cuba is now open to American travellers, that simply is not the case. The most succinct article I've seen has been this article:

The new regulations will allow Americans to visit the island for any of a dozen specific reasons, including family visits, education and religion, without first obtaining a special license from the U.S. government as was previously the case.
But trips purely for tourism remain specifically prohibited.

Direct flights from the United States still require that travel is done with a license to travel for specific reasons (religion, education, etc). To get the full Cuban experience, interact with locals, be culturally enriched and not travel with restrictions, read more about our ElderTreks Cuba Tour.

Chinese Silk Road

NEW TOUR - Chinese Silk Road

The ancient Silk Road was a route that connected Imperial Rome with China. For centuries, it was the main exchange between east and west, a conduit for religion and philosophy as well as goods and ideas. It was a place of great ancient cities as well as religious and spiritual centers of faith. Extending 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers), the heart of the great Silk Road was China. Check out our brand new, 23 day Chinese Silk Road tour.

The Baltics

NEW TOUR - The Baltics

Three neighboring countries - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia - known as the Baltics, share a common history and seacoast but are all unique. All three Baltic capitals have UNESCO designations. Lithuania's castle on an island, Latvia's guild houses or Estonia's well-preserved medieval Old Town, sand dunes on the Curonian Spit, national parks and Estonian islands in the Baltic Sea are just a sample of what to expect on our Baltic adventure. Check out our brand new, 19 day tour of the Baltics.
