The idea of a ‘Slowcation’ is that it offers the benefits of the world’s most relaxing cruise holidays, but without the hassle.  It is a tour appealing to the well-travelled who are used to touring and exploration, but this will be a more relaxing experience than is standard on a coach tour.

The beautiful new Journeys of Distinction Slow Travel brochure highlights this perfect mix with a combination of group tours, escorted by a Journeys of Distinction Tour Manager, and private tours escorted by local guides.

As you would expect from any Journeys of Distinction adventure, the experience still offers superb accommodation in all the best locations, with luxury trains and fine cruising experiences included.

Pick from a selection of inspiring locations, including The Grand Tour of Europe, Classic Splendours and Italian Treasures, Paris, Provence and the Cote d'Azur, Transylvania and Medieval Europe.

Journeys across Asia and beyond are available including an Historic Hugli River Cruise, Rajasthan and Beyond by Rail, Burma Discovery Cruise, The Great Trans-Siberian Express and The Very Best of China to name but a few.

Even more breathtaking is a South African exploration of the Rivers and Rails of Africa and South American adventures, via the Ecuador and The Galapagos Tour, and the Antarctic Expedition Cruise.

It is a relief to know that Slowcationers will only have to pack their bags an average of three times during their adventure, compared to an average of 9-10 on a standard luxury tour holiday!
