FUTURE PLANS

Arcadia’s team of expert Expedition Designers are constantly researching and creating innovative new itineraries to some of the world’s most exotic places.

These limited edition expeditions tell stories that have never been told in this type of travel format before and often follow routes that have never been attempted.

We intend to run all of the following expeditions in the near future. Final dates and prices are yet to be confirmed. Register your interest and we will be in touch as soon as more information is available for each expedition. If you are interested in a private departure of any of these expeditions, contact us directly.

CHAD

The Roof of the Sahara by Helicopter

The remote northern reaches of Chad are one of the least-visited regions of Africa, but the rewards are great for those who dare. Dominated by the other-worldly Tibesti Mountains, home to the highest peaks of the Sahara Desert, few have laid eyes on these breathtaking landscapes. Our one-of-a-kind helicopter expedition explores the lofty volcanoes, towering canyons, desert lakes and rare wildlife of this region, meeting with the local semi-nomadic Toubou people along the way and learning the story of these mysterious mountains through its ancient rock art.

Morocco - The Moroccan Art of Living

MOROCCO

The Moroccan Art of Living

This expedition explores the high culture of Morocco, taking in the stunning highlights of the country with an in-depth focus on its unique architecture, design, art and gastronomy. Exploring the bustling souks of the Imperial Cities, whitewashed medinas of the coast and jaw-dropping mountain scenery of the interior, we stay in some of Morocco’s most character-filled and iconic riads and hotels. Meeting with some of the country’s key cultural figures, we will see first-hand how the distinctive elements of Moroccan culture have inspired people around the world, including famed visitors such as Yves Saint Laurent and Matisse.

SAUDI ARABIA

The Keys to the Kingdom

Whilst many destinations claim to be ‘off the tourist trail’ and ‘undiscovered’, perhaps nowhere on Earth right now best matches these descriptions than Saudi Arabia, which has only just opened its doors to travellers for the first time in a generation. In addition to our current cross-border expedition, which takes in both Jordan and Saudi, we are planning a stand-alone expedition to Saudi Arabia for 2022 that will capture the very best of the Kingdom. From the archaeological wonders of Al Ula and the Frankincense Trail, to the white volcanoes of the remote north and the bustling souks of Jeddah, we go in search of the soul of Saudi.

INDIA

In the Footsteps of Jim Corbett, the Tiger Hunter

A journey to the hill stations and national parks of northern India following the story of Jim Corbett, a British hunter, tracker and naturalist who successfully hunted a number of man-eating tigers and leopards.  Later in life, Corbett was a passionate promoter of India’s natural heritage and the need to conserve forests and their wildlife. His famed books recounting his hunts provide our roadmap, as we go in search of the legend and perhaps even a tiger or two along the way.

MYANMAR

Life on the Water

For thousand of years, the rich spiritual, cultural and economic life of the Burmese people has centred on its waterways. This expedition brings together two of the country’s most fascinating journeys on water – a luxury cruise on the Irrawaddy River and a sailing adventure to the Mergui Archipelago, one of the planets most unspoiled and least-visited marine environments, where we spend time with the seafaring Moken (sea gypsy) people.

NIGER

Camel Caravans and Tuareg Culture

In the dead heart of the Sahara, the world’s largest desert, there’s a place called the Tenere. The Tenere takes its name from the Tuareg word for ‘nothing’ – a nothing the size of France. It’s no wonder the locals call this place ‘The Land of Fear’. On this 4×4 adventure, we attend the annual Camel Festival in Timia, meet the silversmith and sword makers of the Aiir Mountains and explore ancient ghost fortresses and ruined cities. We walk with the great salt caravans, witnessing the largest conglomeration of camel caravans in the world as they load their salt and travel across ancient trade routes.
