Why not visit a Sumatran Rhino in 2017?


In the last 2 years, ElderTreks' CEO Gary Murtagh has been working hard to work out the logistics of visiting the Sumatran Rhino Breeding Sanctuary in Way Kambas National Park, South Sumatra. Not only is this a rare and special experience (as there are only about 100 Sumatran rhinos left worldwide), but we hope that by supporting and bringing sustainable tourism, that the locals may help protect the rhinos and no longer be a potential poaching threat. South Sumatra is not known for its tourism infrastructure and things do not happen easily here, yet it has some incredible experiences for intrepid travelers!

Iran

Iran is an ancient land filled with bustling bazaars, historic sights, superb architecture, parched deserts, and beautiful snow-capped mountains. Despite Iran's wealth of antiquities, perhaps Iran's greatest attraction is the warmth and generosity of its people. Making you feel genuinely welcome in their country comes naturally to the Iranians. We visit rural villages, with a more simplistic life, to give you an off-the-beaten path, authentic Iranian experience filled with countless memories. Read more here.


Medieval Treasures of Eastern Europe

Eastern Europe is a fascinating place with immense history and culture, an abundance of lovely little medieval towns, picturesque landscapes and hospitable people. On our adventure, we see the best of three old European countries: the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland; including 8 prominent UNESCO sites boasting riches of cultural heritage and well-preserved architectural monuments. There are, however, many hidden gems in this region yet to be discovered by crowds of tourists, and it is this variety that makes our adventure so special. Read more here.
