Explore adds rail and Middle East tours for 2022

Adventure operator Explore has added new tours in Pakistan, Oman and Saudi Arabia to its latest 2022 brochure.

The Unforgettable Adventures brochure showcases the operator’s range of Classic Discovery, Walking and Cycling tours, featuring bestselling trips along with the new offerings. Also new are six European tours by rail from London.

Michael Edwards, Explore’s managing director, said: “It’s just brilliant to be back out exploring again, and to be able to introduce new tours and new destinations – including breathtaking Pakistan and overland rail journeys through Europe – is the icing on the cake.”

The operator has reintroduced Pakistan for 2022, a destination that the operator has not featured since 2001. The Karakoram Highway is a 13-night overland tour from £2,299, not including flights.

Travelling overland from Saudi Arabia to Jordan, the new 11-night Journey Through Arabia tour travels from the Red Sea hub of Jeddah (pictured) through desert and ancient cities. It costs from £2,599, not including flights.

The London2 escorted rail journeys start in the capital and take clients to destinations such as Istanbul, Athens and Morocco. Clients can return by air or return by rail.

Explore has guaranteed nearly 40% of European departures for 2022.
