“The early civilisations, the birthplace of Abrahamic religions and the diversity of landscapes and cultures in the Near East region draws the curious and intrepid travellers. I find this region to be largely unexplored, under-rated and has the potential to grow in the coming years. We are looking for strong partnerships with local operators with a focus on culture, nature and adventure. There should be exacting attention paid to detail at every stage of the travel process (safety being paramount) and a knack of showcasing the "ordinary experiences" to discerning travellers.”

Jordan will be a very good addition to our offering and now that we have a direct flight from Iceland to Tel Aviv it's much more simple to travel from Iceland to this area.”
