Explore! to restart Lebanon tours from spring 2023

Explore has said it will relaunch its tours to Lebanon* in April 2023.

This follows the easing of the FCDO's warning against travel to the majority of Lebanon in December 2022.

The six-night Highlights of Lebanon* tour will run throughout the year from April.

Alison Butler, Explore's Middle East Product Manager, said: "I'm just delighted to get our Highlights of Lebanon trip back on sale for 2023. This was one of our bestselling trips when we launched it in 2020, and we just know demand will be huge again this year.

"Lebanon is a really special country, with incredible historic sites, beautiful scenery and incredible food, but we also know just how much the people of Lebanon will benefit from renewed income from tourism."

Explore launches 11 new overland European tours for 2022/2023

Explore has revealed no fewer than 11 brand new overland tours across Europe for 2022/2023 with a focus on slow, sustainable travel.

These exciting new itineraries allow time to appreciate each destination with rail journeys and public transport central to each route.

Choose from the likes of island hopping in Greece*, travelling overland through Spain*, Portugal* and Morocco*, and riding the rails from Rome to Venice in Italy*.

Examples of these new tours include:

Explore's Managing Director, Michael Edwards, said: "When creating these new European trips, our expert Product Team were working to a brief to include public transport where possible - it's a more sustainable way to travel, of course, but it's also a really vibrant and authentic way to travel.

"Joining diverse travellers, commuters, locals and travelling more slowly through these countries we feel we know already - that's the way to really get to know these wonderful destinations, away from the main hotspots."

Explore launches exclusive US tours for 2023 solar eclipse

Leading specialist tour operator, Explore, has launched a collection of exclusive new eclipse tours* to the USA built around the 2023 solar eclipse.

Each tour promises the chance to watch as a 'ring of fire' appears around the moon when the sun passes in front of it, which will last approximately four minutes.

The tours, which all depart in early October 2023 ahead of the eclipse on 14 October, offer enticing itineraries with dramatic vantage points for viewing the eclipse like Monument Valley and Arizona, all with an expert astronomer on hand.

Take your pick from the likes of the 10-day Best of the American West & Eclipse, which will take in six national parks and the 15-day US National Parks Explorer & Eclipse, which includes visits to parks between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Explore's Managing Director, Michael Edwards, said: "We're thrilled to launch this new collection of epic eclipse tours, which take in some of the most spectacular natural sites of North America. Seeing an annular eclipse is a really memorable, often once-in-a-lifetime experience - something that's our bread and butter at Explore."
