It is all about adventure. That is what Exodus was founded upon and what the company is still all about. Discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles; exploring this amazing planet we all live on. At Exodus, we know what makes you tick when it comes to holidays. It’s a desire shared by so many others. A yearning to visit new places and come home with a real sense of what they’re all about. This means delving into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to its unique identity. At the same time, we always remember that we are only guests. So we travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise our impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved. This is a philosophy we take with us around the world, helping you reach some incredible destinations on 500 itineraries across over 90 separate countries. We also strive to provide as much flexibility and choice as we possibly can, making it simple for you to experience a very different holiday. Exodus started life on 4 February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments. See our history page for more details about how we began and how we have grown over the past 40 years. Never travelled with Exodus before? Visit our New to Exodus page for some useful, first-timer information. Know How You know you’re in good hands with Exodus. All our office staff have a passion for travel and adventure, and between us we’ve notched up experience that spans 171 different countries – all of which means we know how to give you the best experience when you travel with us. We’ve even won awards for it. That’s not all. In their former lives, our team members have been professional archaeologists, wildlife guides, overland drivers, mountain leaders, diving and ski specialists and mountain bike gurus – and we use our expertise to give you the very best adventure possible. Extensive planning, research, fact-finding and training are just some of the ways this expertise comes through in your adventure. It is no exaggeration to say that our tour leaders can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so we choose them carefully. The result is that, in 2015, 97% of travellers said they would recommend us to a friend. Where possible, we train and employ local leaders because they can provide invaluable insights that enrich the trip. What’s more, this investment in local staff really helps us benefit both them and their community.

    Day 1: Arrive in Weymouth

    We meet you at Weymouth train station and take you (5 mins) to your contemporary B&B right on the town’s splendid Georgian Esplanade. Your accommodation overlooks the beach made famous by Mad King George III in 1789 when he took his first Royal dip using a newfangled beach machine and turned sea bathing into a national pastime! Stroll the amazing sands, visit the bustling C17 harbour or take a taxi (5 mins) to the C16 Sandsfoot Castle – one of Henry VIII’s Device Forts.

    Day 2: Weymouth to Lulworth/Corfe

    Take a short (11 mins) bus transfer to join one of the most scenic sections of the magnificent 630-mile long South West Coast Path. With the dramatic white chalk cliffs as your backdrop, you follow the classic smugglers’ route down to picturesque Osmington where the aptly named C13 Smugglers’ Inn does great coffee! A short climb to the top of Burning Cliff is rewarded with the most fabulous views of the fossil-filled Jurassic Coast before continuing on to Durdle Door – one of the most photographed rock arches in the world. Today’s final stretch hugs the coast down into gorgeous Lulworth Cove – a great place for lunch, a swim or a journey back through 185 million years of history at the renowned Heritage Centre. A pre-arranged taxi will collect you for the 20-minute journey to Corfe, described as one of the most beautiful villages in England, where you stay overnight.

    Day 3: Corfe to Swanage

    Built by William the Conqueror and destroyed by Cromwell’s vengeful troops during the Civil War, the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle – now a National Trust property and the setting for several historical feature films – stand at the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck and its surrounding hills. We’ve deliberately kept today’s walk short to enable you to explore at leisure before setting out on the panoramic ridge high above the village. It’s a journey of diverse natural beauty – with Poole Harbour and Bournemouth to your left, the rolling Purbeck Hills to your right and the Isle of Wight clearly visible in the distance – as you follow the pretty Purbeck Way into Swanage, a small Victorian seaside town with a stunning semi-circular bay. You spend two nights at lovely Purbeck House, close to the town centre and just a few minutes’ walk from the beach.

    Day 4: Free day in Swanage (optional walk)

    We strongly recommend a circular walk today to Durlston Country Park, a magnificent 280-acre nature reserve of sea-cliffs, downs, meadows, hedgerows and woods. With 250+ bird species, 500+ moths and 33 species of breeding butterfly, few places in the country have the same ornithological appeal as Durlston and, from March to July, hidden deep in the cliffs are sea birds, swifts and swallows. The recently restored Victorian castle boasts a fully interactive Visitor Centre, restaurant and panoramic roof terrace.

    Day 5: Swanage to Sandbanks

    Today’s magnificent coastal path hugs Swanage Bay as you climb gently out of the town and up to the famous white chalk sea stacks, Old Harry Rocks. As you continue towards the tiny Purbeck village of Studland, you’ll pass ‘Dragon’s Teeth’ tank traps and Fort Henry – a concrete observation bunker built in 1943 and used by Churchill, Eisenhower and King George VI to watch the rehearsals for D-Day. From the gorgeous white sands of Studland, it’s just a short hop (5 mins) on the chain ferry across to the luxury four-star Haven Hotel & Spa on exclusive Sandbanks peninsula. There’s an optional bus ride for those wanting to visit neighbouring Poole – a beautiful coastal town whose natural harbour is the second largest in the world.

    Day 6: Leave Sandbanks

    After breakfast, your hotelier will arrange a taxi to Poole station at a time to connect with your onward travel arrangements. This costs around £15 and take 15-30 minutes dependent on the traffic. It will drop you by the platform.
