Distant Horizons

Distant Horizons

Distant Horizons specialises in organising small group, scholar-led visits to some of the more unusual places in Europe, South America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

All trips are led by distinguished scholars whose role is to provide the framework and background that encourages the traveller not just to experience but to breathe the culture and traditions of the country they are journeying though. While a number of informal lectures are given on each of their tours, it is very often the informal teaching, in the teahouse or in the monastery that really brings home the history and culture of the country and its people.

The travel experience is enhanced by using deluxe or best available facilities and organising special events such as meetings with local specialists or visits to private collections and houses.

Distant Horizons was established in 1996 and first worked with the University of Cambridge on a trip to Iran in 1998. They have worked with many of the world’s leading museums and societies both in the UK and USA, creating unique itineraries designed specifically for members of these organisations.
