The Southern Explorer

From £3405
Duration From 30 Days
Visit mysterious Easter Island, idyllic Tahiti, explore South America, experience the wonderfully different world that is Japan before finishing up in beautiful South East Asia. What a gap year!

See the Carnival capital of the world – Rio, learn to Tango in Buenos Aires and wander among the mysterious Moai on Easter Island before heading into the Northern Hemisphere.

You might even swing via the little island chain known as Tahiti where the beaches are whiter than you could possibly imagine and life moves at a different pace, before finally exploring Asia in all its diversity and craziness.

Here you’ll witness the extraordinary contrasts in Tokyo, visit the melting pot that is Hong Kong and then finally make your way from Hanoi down through the whole of South East Asia before finishing up in the urban jungle that is Bangkok.

This will really put your gapper skills to the test and make sure you see a whole range of places you never thought you’d get to see!
