Pure Adventures has been a pioneerin popularizing the self-guided cycle touring travel concept for travelers from around the world. Since 2004, Pure Adventures has expanded and grown its offers by focusing on the ‘local experience’ which isat the essence of its “Pure” name. Pure Adventures only uses the expertise of locals for guides, route development, sites to see, people to meet, where to eat, shop and experience life as a local would. The self guided concept is one of our key areas of expertise and is the 2nd Pure element for the client – it puts the traveler in control and in contact with the destination much more than if a professional guide is handling everything. What we do is catching on! Many of the elements thatPure Adventuresincludes in its unique self guided formulaare now appearing in the offers of more and moretour operators. Since the economic crisis, travelers have found this to be a great way to spend less and have an awesome (and in many ways – more authentic) travelexperience. Buyer beware, low price offers from foreign based operators are not comparable to the tours we have developed with more service, support, and high quality lodging, equipment.
Self guided is a more ‘pure’ experience and many people who have done guided trips in the past realize they don’t need or want that type of tour. They don’t need to be on a rigid schedule, and prefer to mix with locals on their own time at their own speed. Our customers don’t want the hassle of figuring out all the details, they just want to show up and then go their own speed with the important logistics all handled! This leaves plenty of time to visit local sites, taste local foods, experience local customs, and interact with local habitants! It is simply a more pure experience!
