Land days - not air days
Our stated trip lengths refer to land days only. ElderTreks "day 1" always refers to the arrival day. Some destinations may take a day or 2 to reach and we don’t begin your trip until you arrive at destination.
Hassle-free all-inclusive land and sea packages
All meals, accommodation, domestic transportation and domestic departure taxes, entrance fees, tips at hotels and restaurants...nothing is left to chance. If there are exceptions to this rule, they are clearly noted.
Freedom to choose the airline and routing of your choice
It's your choice. Use your frequent flier points, stop en route, fly business class, arrive a few days early, or extend your stay. We offer personalized flight itineraries to suit your needs.
Experts with first-hand knowledge
When you book a trip with ElderTreks, you have access to people who have been where you are going. You may deal directly with people who are able to answer your questions.
No mandatory single-supplement charge on land adventures (excluding extensions)
If you're willing to share a room, there is no additional charge. We don't penalize single travelers - we welcome you.
Genuine travel experiences
ElderTreks takes you off the beaten path on carefully crafted itineraries that are unique and thoughtfully planned. We do not support conveyor-belt tourism, where groups are pushed through a rigid itinerary at the expense of spontaneity.
Sustainable, responsible travel
We support a number of development projects throughout the world, and we make sure you have close contact with local people. During some of our adventures, you have the opportunity to visit schools and orphanages.
Comfortable, charming accommodations
We select hotels based on comfort, location and charm with private washrooms. Shared facilities are only used where there is no alternative, and such exceptions are clearly noted.
Variety of destinations on land and at sea
From Easter Island in the South Pacific to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia; from Baja to the Galapagos; from the Amazon to Alaska, our itineraries are diverse and exotic. You're not an average traveler; we're not an average adventure company.
