Journeys are best described as cultural
tours. We interact with local people, see
historic, modern and natural sites, have guides
that are well versed with all aspects of what
we encounter. We enjoy local flavor, yet do
not sacrifice comfort or safely in order to
do so. Our group size is always 6-10 people
and this provides versatility so that we may
the workplace or dining at the home of local
travel in a small vehicle that allows for
stops as we wish, and permits us to lodge
in some of the small yet comfortable hotels
that would not accommodate larger groups.
Along the way we are warmly greeted by staff
and hotel and restaurants owners who fondly
remember previous Champaca journeyers.
Each journey is well organized to make best
use of time in a given locale. The days are
full, but never hectic, nor rigid. While there
is a well choreographed plan, we have built
enough flexibility into the program so that
we can embrace spontaneity if the situation
warrants. Some mornings and many afternoons
or evenings permit solo or group exploration.
We want to leave you feeling you are exploring
a new country at your leisure, and we have
developed from repeated visits a good sense
of how much time to budget for a given site.
We pay attention to detail to ensure that
your journey with us is relaxed, comfortable,
rewarding and memorable.
The remarkable Himalayan kingdom of BHUTAN
is the mainstay destination of Champaca Journeys.
Scheduled visits to Bhutan occur each spring
and fall, the ideal times to visit. Additional
visits are sometimes scheduled during winter,
and custom tailored tours can be arranged
at any time during the year. All Bhutan tours
are guided by one of the most experienced
guides in the country, Dorji Khandu, who has
extraordinary amounts of information and personality
and a network of contacts that extends throughout
Other important Champaca Journey destinations
include Cambodia, Laos, Argentina, and Mexico. There is at
least one trip per year to each of these destinations.
Other destinations are always under consideration,
and custom trips to these and other countries
are always possible. In each area we work
speaking licensed local guides who are informed
and passionate about their country. We invite
you to join us and experience a new country
through the eyes of a local.
