Dear Council Travelers,

Imagine a new way to see the world, where you can summit volcanoes, explore rainforests teeming with wildlife or cycle through lands awash with history. Add in non-stop fun and you have a life-changing travel experience for which AHI Travel is a global leader.

We´re thrilled to introduce our unique Further tours, designed for the curious traveler who seeks adrenaline-fueled adventures and profound experiences. Each Further itinerary weaves a spot-on blend of active excursions, must-see highlights and eye-opening encounters with local people as well as the freedom to roam. Plus, you´ll enjoy upgraded accommodations and private transport so you won´t sacrifice comfort when roaming the planet.

The best part? Engage your muscles as much as your mind with exciting adventure excursions such as biking, hiking, ziplining, kayaking and more. We provide the equipment, the experts, the opportunity. You provide the energy.

Enjoy the security and structure of traveling in a small group led by a locally based Travel Director, who shares a rolodex of information, from the best foodie spots to the local music scene. You´ll meet 16-20 like-minded travelers, the perfect size for making connections with each other and the communities you visit. And, we handle all the details, from booking hotels to securing tickets to top attractions. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your destination!

We believe that travel connects us -- to our planet, to its people, to each other. That´s why each Further program is also designed with immersive cultural experiences that directly benefit the people and places we visit. You´ll learn and try new things, like sharing a kantoke-style dinner in a Thai home or chatting with Costa Rican coffee bean farmers.

You've been waiting to discover the world -- now's your chance!
