EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - April 08, 2014) - The pioneers of adventure travel since 1969, Mountain Travel Sobek, has tailored a new series of trips catered to those in need of a vacation but unable to embark on that month-long dream trip. MTS' new Express Excursions balance relaxation and adventure for the wanderlust traveler and are available all over the world, from Alaska to Bhutan. All trips are a week or less and start at just $2,295 per person.
Whitewater raft through the Himalayan landscapes in Nepal, visit a sacred deity temple, and explore every day life in small Himal villages. Whitewater rafting not your thing? Swap out the raft and hop on an elephant while passing enigmatic temples in Luang Prabang, and explore the paradisiacal countryside of Cambodia and Laos.
Each trip has been tailored to highlight the best of each destination in the amount of time, without feeling rushed. MTS focuses on memorable experiences like enjoying a fresh picnic in the Alps with local wine and traditional foodstuffs and exploring nature's most interesting creatures by going island hopping on a luxury yacht in the Galapagos.
The new Express Excursions program is aimed to give people a memorable glimpse of the world in a week. MTS' expert guides have led hundreds of trips in these destinations, so they know exactly where to go and when, making the express trip itineraries filled with the must-sees as well as the hidden gems along the way.
