Some travellers would rather experience the world in the company of friends and family – and that’s why we offer tailor-made private departures for all of our expeditions.

Travelling privately, rather than on one of our set group departures, gives you the chance to tailor-make the content of your expedition. Choose activity inclusions on your trip, the duration and the departure date. We offer complete flexibility that puts you in control of your holiday.

Our private departures still share all the unique features of our small group expeditions, with the same commitment to excellence synonymous with Arcadia Expeditions.

Ideal for groups of friends, families, associations or clubs, our highly experienced team of Expedition Designers will create a personalised itinerary exclusively for your group. We take care of all of the planning and logistics. All you have to do is let the excitement build in anticipation of a life-changing holiday.

Personalise your itinerary

If you would like to tweak the itinerary, consider the ideal preferences of your group. Want to change the length or pace of the trip, take a detour or include something completely different? No problem, we can do that. Want to add in some unique activities, accommodation, or stay longer at a certain destination? Your wish is our command. Select a departure date that suits you and then email your brief to your travel agent or our team at info@arcadiaexpeditions.com or call us directly with your thoughts.

Consultation call with our Expedition Designers

We take the time to listen to you so we understand precisely what you want from your trip. After the consultation call, our Expedition Designers will pool their expert knowledge to customise your perfect trip and come back to you with a handcrafted bespoke itinerary for your consideration.

Confirm your bespoke Expedition

Once you are happy with the itinerary, we source the Expedition Leader best suited to the theme of the trip and can then proceed to confirm your expedition.
I have an Expedition idea that you haven’t thought of yet...

Each of Arcadia Expeditions immersive historical and cultural journeys is created around a theme. We like to weave this theme throughout an itinerary and it’s this focus on storytelling that truly makes travelling with Arcadia unique.

What if you would like a private departure but you have an idea for a theme that we don’t have yet in our suite of expeditions? We would love to hear about your idea and, if we believe we can create an expedition to match, work with you to make it happen for your private group. As a company that is committed to creating truly unique expeditions to the worlds most inspiring and exotic destinations, we have the expertise and network of global contacts to make even the most whimsical ideas come to life.
