Exodus Travels Targets Young Professionals With ‘Micro-Adventures’
According to Exodus Travels, for many young professionals, there’s never enough time—or vacation days—to tackle their adventure aspirations.
The active and cultural tour specialist is seeking to change that with “Exodus Edits,” a new collection of “compact and expertly crafted world tours” designed for young professionals in their 30s and 40s.
The new collection is comprised of 22 trips ranging 4-13 days in length, all locally-led and including intriguing accommodations such as converted monasteries, mountainside refuges and boutique hotels. Itineraries are “edited” to include the outdoor activities, dynamic culinary experiences and cultural exploration essential to a bucket-list-worthy adventure—without the usual time commitment.
“Workplace burnout is a real problem, and the average employee only has about 15-20 paid days off each year, so we’ve got to make them count,” says Robin Brooks, Exodus Travels’ Marketing Director.
“Exodus Edits were created so busy young professionals can recharge, experience transformative moments alongside like-minded individuals and forge a deeper connection with the world around them -- without using all their vacation days at once.”
Exodus Edits are designed to showcase a destination’s best features. Travellers can kayak with penguins and go sandboarding in South Africa, wander Sicily’s street food scene before visiting Europe’s largest active volcano via 4x4 and cycle temple-filled villages in Vietnam en route to a chef-led cooking experience.
