Limited Only By Your Imagination...

Around The Sun trips are built around experiences - but one traveller’s most treasured experience can be another’s worst nightmare!  Bearing this in mind, Around The Sun caters to an enormous range of interests and comfort levels. Our itineraries are as varied as our travellers. 

Around The Sun counts accommodation and places to eat as crucial travel experiences. They are carefully chosen. All of them will be interesting and they will connect you with the local culture and people. Accommodation will be extremely comfortable, sometimes quirky. Places to eat and drink will be off the tourist trail - the local’s favourites.

Around The Sun’s published itineraries include old-style Himalayan treks; self-guided walks and bike trips in Italy; general tours with a focus on history, food and wine; pony treks; luxury car camping; exploratory expeditions; and blissful holidays where you don’t do much at all. 

In reality, Around The Sun journeys are limited only by your imagination. The partnership between Around The Sun and our outstanding local tour operators means that it is possible to create private, custom trips to meet virtually any wish list. 

If you have an interest, a hobby or a passion - and we judge it to be safe and ethically sound - we can make it happen. We can design itineraries for:

  • motorbike touring in Europe, India and Bhutan
  • white water rafting in Nepal, India and Bhutan
  • religious and meditation retreats in Nepal, India and Thailand
  • art and architecture in Europe and Asia
  • snorkelling and diving in the Mediterranean and Thailand
  • handicrafts in the Mediterranean region, India, Nepal and South-East Asia
  • wellness (spas and retreats) in South-East Asia
  • photography and painting trips
  • exploratory expeditions
  • blissful holidays

And the list does not necessarily end there; if you have any interest that happens to flourish in the Mediterranean region, the Himalayas, India, South-East Asia, Southern Africa or Australia we and our local operators almost always (but not always!) have the resources to meet your needs. 

All our trips are designed to be comfortable, hassle-free holidays. All you need to do is enjoy yourself!

The goal is to make each Around The Sun journey the trip of a lifetime.

Congratulations on finding Around The Sun! We’d love to talk to you about your next holiday adventure.

Around The Sun trips are based on the expertise and knowledge of Richard Everist and Lucrezia Migliore – and the expertise and services of a select group of friends who operate the best tour companies in the world.

Around The Sun showcases a careful selection of small group trips (with guides and expert leaders), and we design customised private journeys (both guided and self-guided).

All our suggested itineraries can be run privately, or customised, so the departure dates and itineraries completely suit you. Many of our itineraries can be adapted for those who wish to to travel completely independently. See Create Your Own Journey.
