3. Byron is a place to escape – from yourself
Adventure travel is not only about activities, it’s also about going outside your comfort zone and exploring yourself, what makes you tick and who you are – just as much as the world around you. Travellers’ tales often reflect that it took travelling to the other side of the world to find “themselves”. Our philosophy is to take each of our guests on a personal journey to soothe away the stresses of daily life, allowing them the opportunity to reconnect with their authentic selves. As part of our mind, body and soul mantra, our one day Byron & Beyond Tour includes a visit to The Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens, which is home to one of only 7 Buddhist Peace Stupas placed around the globe.
