Each expedition is curated with extensive experiences guaranteed to go well beyond the ordinary with expeditions into uncharted territory. Guests are invited to drive capable expedition vehicles to far ends of the earth and take on adventurous journeys offering a true sense of achievement.
“At Nomadic Road we like to push things beyond the mundane and are always on the lookout for amazing destinations that fit with creating life changing motoring journeys,” said Venky, founder, Nomadic Road. “The exhilaration of driving expedition-ready vehicles and the feeling of being lost in the middle of nowhere with freedom to explore is unlike anything else. When it comes to organizing overland journeys, we strive to build the bond between man, machine, and mother nature.”
Guests are accompanied by a team of expedition specialists who take a deep dive into the destination. Trips range 12–15 days and include accommodations, meals and select activities.
New 2023 expeditions include:
Sept. 27–Oct. 9, Overland adventure across the world’s driest desert outside of the polar regions. As an unknown territory to most people, Argentina’s Atacama Plateau and Chile’s beauty of landscapes is truly humbling. The expedition takes guests across elevated plateaus of wildly striking and desolate landscapes filled with rare sites like salt flats, flamingos, ancient Incan trails, labyrinths, herds of llamas and turquoise lakes. Exploring this landscape requires serious effort but is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Considered one of the most secluded and underrated regions in the world, landlocked Bolivia offers unique landscapes with a rocky, treeless desert; almost vertical valleys and canyons; an unsullied rainforest; and more. Oct. 12–23, travelers go beyond the unknown and drive through slopes of ice-capped Andean peaks, including the plains of the Altiplano, the most extensive high plateau on earth outside of Tibet. Whether tracing the world-renowned Dakar Rally route or driving across the world’s largest salt flats of Salar De Uyuni, this trip pushes travelers out of their comfort zones.
Unlike any other country, Peru is home to the world’s most arid desert, the highest navigable lake and some of the deepest canyons, including the rugged Andes from which one of our planet’s largest rivers is located: the Amazon. Nomadic Road created a new motoring expedition across Peru showcasing the best of its wonders like The Nazca Lines, the world’s largest collection of geoglyphs. Explore some of the most treacherous routes used during the Dakar Rally. The 12-day journey runs Oct. 26–Nov. 6.
One of the greatest overland adventures in the world, Namibia offers some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa. Dec. 6–20, explore the majestic sand dunes of the world’s oldest desert and meet the crashing rollers along the Atlantic coast with this distinct route featuring a mix of extreme climatic conditions, unforgettable sights and challenging off-road driving. Explore Namibia’s rich tapestry, Stone Age rock art, wildlife, petrified forests and more.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
Known as one of the best airports in the world and voted Best Airport in the Middle East by Global Traveler readers, Hamad International Airport aims to set new standards for the airport industry that exceed the expectations of travelers through its facility.
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
Embracing a life well lived often means embracing a life well-traveled. Every journey becomes a canvas for experiences that shape our lives and at the heart of every adventure lies the indispensable companion: quality luggage.
