Exodus Edits New Travel Collection for 2022
March 15, 2022. Seattle, Washington: Life is busy! Exodus Travels understands that. That’s why the National Geographic award-winning adventure and small group tour company has launched the Exodus Edits collection. They’re inviting travelers in their 30s and 40s to trade their endless meetings for Moroccan markets, swap “you’re on mute” for travel pursuits, and take a break from working at home to freely roam the destinations that have been pulling at their hearts.
Quality will always be more meaningful than quantity. This series of 19 immersive, bite-sized adventures are designed to maximize free time, give busy working professionals the opportunity to replace tedium with exhilaration, and explore paths less traveled with like-minded people and new lifelong friends.
Whether it’s visiting a secret temple for a blessing ceremony performed by a priest in Bali, taking a dawn yoga class with the Taj Mahal as your backdrop in India, spending a night under the stars in a geodesic dome pod in Wadi Rum Jordan, or visiting a 3000-strong penguin colony and treating your tastebuds with cabernet and capers in South Africa, Exodus Edits makes travel dreams come true while working around the realities of families, finances, careers, and vacation days.
To celebrate the launch of Exodus Edits, one lucky person will win a spot on a Digital Detox Holiday in Portugal. Aspiring travelers can enter the contest now for the chance to win a spot on this five-day trip where they’ll replace their cell phone with the unknown. Instead of working and wi-fi, their days will be filled with spa appointments, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, and glowing beachside sunsets. This itinerary provides the perfect balance of excitement and rejuvenation.
Besides being the best way to spend what we all know are not enough vacation days, $20 from each booked Exodus Edits trip will go to The Inspiration Project. Over the last five years, The Inspiration Project has helped children—over 6000 of them in more than 30 countries—go on Exodus Travels adventures to explore the greatest wonders of the world that exist in their own backyards. And, as it is with every Exodus Travels trip, for every guest that books a trip,100 square meters will be committed to rewilding efforts—preserving the unimaginable abundance of flora and fauna that make up all the amazing places and spaces you’ve been, and the ones you can’t wait to visit.
For travelers who are ready to trade their apps for a beach side Aperol (or 2), replace delivery with the truly delectable, and swap supermarkets for sailing yachts, here are just a few of the compact, lovingly designed itineraries built to maximize adventure and minimize the stress of everyday life:
