Encounters Travel is a UK based adventure tour operator with a wide selection of cultural and adventurous tours around the world, all designed to help you get the most out of the country you're visiting. They range from small group tours to shoestring, overland, family, private and tailor-made holidays.
Our tours are designed to be experiential and to give you the best possible 'Encounter' with each country, and to be great value without making compromises to save time or money. We are committed to travelling responsibly, and leaving a positive impression and impact on the countries through which we travel.
Our focus this month is on Jordan, one of our favourite countries and most popular destinations at the moment. Packed with beautiful scenery and ancient history, Jordan has a huge amount to offer. Check our Jordan Feature for more information
The months of September, October and November are peak trekking season in Nepal: temperatures are mild, the weather is relatively stable and the clear air makes for superb mountain views.
Another of our favourite Middle Eastern countries, Lebanon is compact and easy to explore, and full of surprises. With spectacular caves and waterfalls, busy ancient markets and historic ruins and delicious food and wine to taste in scenic Mediterranean bays, tours to Lebanon are a great, good value option at the moment.
We offer cultural and adventure tours all around the world. Check all our destinations.
We split our tours into several different categories to help make it easier for you to navigate our site and find the holiday you're looking for.

As a small company we don't have big overheads to cover on large offices or printed brochures. We aim to pass those savings on to you, making our trips great value for money. We also reward our loyal repeat customers with extra discounts and run regular feature promotions in different destinations.
We believe that our holidays should provide an adventure and an escape from everyday life, while also providing comfort and relaxation as well. We will explore back streets and little visited attractions, taste local delicacies and mingle with the locals, while not neglecting the most famous highlights either.
We are very aware of our responsibilities to the places we visit, and use local guides and leaders in all our destinations, as well as trying to ensure our operations support the communities we visit. We avoid internal flights where possible and home-working helps us stay green too.
We are a small company, with a dedicated and long-standing team working to provide the best possible personal service to our travellers. We also believe passionately in small-group travel, and the enhanced experiences that travelling with a limited number of like-minded travellers can bring.
Our Safer Encounters scheme has been carefully worked on in each destination before we have re-opened to travellers following the Covid-19 pandemic, making sure that you stay as safe as possible during your time away. Our Flexible booking conditions also let you book with confidence.
Nearly all our tours include your airport transfers, so you're met with a smile and friendly face when you arrive. We also offer extra nights, longer extensions, and various optional extras throughout the tour so you can make your trip your own. All our tours are also available to customise and run privately.
