Exploratory Trips

Why Exploratory Trips?


Over the years, we’ve been approached by many of our guides, colleagues and fellow travelers to offer experiences well off the beaten path, to extraordinary destinations, that are just too good to miss! Whether it’s a solstice festival in the Andes, a solar eclipse on the Great Barrier Reef, a sacred river in the Himalaya, or the migration of some magnificent creature, we want to share these unique opportunities and our unprecedented access with our travelers.


Working with our knowledgeable partners and putting our vast travel expertise to work, you can count on the experience of a lifetime with O.A.R.S. Our exploratory trips are available to a finite number of intrepid travelers who long for new and immensely powerful travel experiences. These trips will be promoted primarily by email, so sign up to receive our Watermark E-Newsletter (at the bottom of the page) and you’ll be among the first to know when we announce a new trip.

Are you up for an adventure?

Private & Charter Trips Manager
