Soft adventure specialist, Adventure World, has released its inaugural Special Interest Journeys featuring 12 exclusive experiences tailored to passion points such as literature, gardening and photography.
Travelling through some of the world’s most exotic destinations, each curated itinerary is hosted by an expert in their respective field. For example, travellers can join Edible Balcony icon, Indira Naidoo, as she shares her passion for sustainable, rooftop and edible gardens on an Eco Gardening journey through Europe; fans of the written word can discover the culture and literature made famous throughout Europe by Hemingway, Shakespeare, Keats and Dickens with one of Australia’s most respected journalists and literary experts, Jennifer Byrne while snap-happy discoverers can experience Cuba through a well-trained camera phone with photojournalist Ben Lowy who specialises in smartphone photography.
Other Special Interest Journeys now offered by Adventure World include discovering the masterpieces of the Renaissance in Italy with leading art critic and BBC presenter, Andrew Graham-Dixon; an experience with a leading Astronomer through Chile and Peru; an active trip of boxing, yoga and meditation with a fitness expert in Phuket; tracking the culinary journey from paddock to plate with a chef in Africa and learning the tricks of the antique trade with an expert at Europe’s finest Antique and Art Fair.
Adventurers who have been honing their language skills can also put these into practice with language experiences in Spain, Italy and French. In addition to practicing the art of conversation, guests will also enjoy immersive cooking classes, unique cultural insights and breath-taking sights.
Fiona Hunt, Managing Director, Adventure World said “We are so excited to launch Adventure World’s first ever Special Interest Journeys. The Adventure World traveller is intelligent, curious and fiercely passionate. We have tapped into some of these passions, both popular and niche, and sought out the best experts in each field to act as hosts. The result is a series of truly unique and highly informative experiences in some of the world’s most exotic locations.
“These journeys provide the perfect complement to Adventure World’s 2015 Worldwide Collection and the brand ethos of delivering curated soft adventures tailored towards individual travel ideals.”
