Oasis Overland launches new adventure trips to Europe
Adventure travel specialist, Oasis Overland is launching three new small group tours to Europe this April. A 14 day London to Istanbul Trans Europe trip, an 8 day tour of Western Turkey and a 21 day trip combining the two.
Oasis Overland specialises in overland trips and expeditions in Africa, South America and Central Asia and Turkey is a long-standing destination for the company. Europe is a first though and Oasis is excited to share its first London to Istanbul journey with travellers wishing to explore iconic cities, UNESCO sites and unique places such as Dracula’s Castle, not to mention sampling some of Europe’s best beer!
Starting on 9th April, the exploratory Trans Europe trip will begin in the city of London, travelling through France, Belgium, Luxembourg (time allowing), Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, finally reaching the capital of Turkey, Istanbul on 22nd April. Along the way travellers can explore German castles, visit Czech Republic’s largest beer hall and look for bears at Romania’s Libearty Bear Sanctuary.
The 8 day Istanbul to Istanbul trip heads out on 23rd April to reach Gallipoli in time for Anzac Day, a day of remembrance for Australians and New Zealanders who fought and died in WWI, particularly in this area. The trip includes attending the dawn service on Anzac Day before continuing to the legendary city of Troy and the Roman ruins at Ephesus. There is time for a dip in the hot springs at Pamukkale before returning to Istanbul.
These journeys will be maDe in the Oasis 16 seat minibus, smaller than the company’s familiar custom built overland trucks but ideal for visiting Europe’s iconic cities and getting off the tourist trail in Romania. Prices start at £395 plus €140 (Euro) local payment and include transport, accommodation in budget hotels and hostels, some activities, some meals and services of the Oasis crew. Prices do not include flights. The 14 day London to Istanbul trip also links to the 15 week Istanbul to Beijing overland expedition, making an epic 17 week Trans Asia journey.
