Unmapped Travel – Live a life less ordinary

Are you finding yourself stuck in an age bracket and not really sure how you got there? Do you catch yourself wishing you could bounce around Europe on one of those multi-country bus tours but lack the stamina? Are you now Googling hotels for their creature comforts and not their price point? Do you wish there was a way to travel in style and ease without compromising on adventure and fun?

If you’re answering yes to any (or all) of the above, do I have the answer for you!

Introducing Unmapped Travel – a lux-adventure company for solo travelers in their 30s and 40s. At Unmapped, they believe that just because you’ve leapt out of your 20s, it doesn’t mean you’ve dived headfirst into retiree-filled river cruises and coach tours with crackly headsets. Their brand ethos is to live a life less ordinary and that is reflected throughout their enticing itineraries.

Unmapped’s mission is to bring together like-minded people for unforgettable trips to some of the world’s most exciting destinations. As the name suggests, their journeys are all about stepping off the beaten track through local connections, active adventures and epic food experiences. While they’re aimed at travellers in their 30s and 40s, it’s more about your perspective than how many candles are on your cake. As long as you’re open-minded and ready to connect with your fellow travellers, you’ll be guaranteed an unforgettable experience.

Each day on an Unmapped trip will bring a myriad of new adventures to add to your experience bank while luxury boutique accommodation will await every evening to recharge the soul. Nights in noisy hostels are a thing of the past; you’ll be able to rest up and rejuvenate in peace. While most meals are included in your trip, it doesn’t mean you’re limited to the hotel buffet. You’ll be immersed in the local culinary culture, sampling restaurant cuisine and authentic street food alike. Depending on
your itinerary, you may even get the opportunity to add some local dishes to your cooking repertoire with a private class!

Each adventure is accompanied by your own personal and local expert. No more wandering through places trying to remember what you read off Google. Your destination expert will offer more than a map by helping you tune in on cultural nuances beyond what the foreign eye can see.

One of the next trips departing is the ‘Sri Lanka’s Got Soul’ itinerary which is a 12 night exploration through some of the most beautiful parts of this little island nation. With sunset elephant safaris, hiking to hidden waterfalls, kayaking with pink dolphins or enjoying a seafood feast with locals as some of the itinerary highlights, this journey of discovery through Sri Lanka will leave you planning your next visit before you’ve even left.


Starting in the capital city of Colombo, you’ll visit fishing villages, vibrant national parks and sprawling hill country framed by busy tea plantations culminating with a stay at one of the island nation’s most idyllic beaches. You’ll sample local food, experience a trip on one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys and develop an understanding to why Sri Lanka has become a global destination.

A stimulating blend of adventure and relaxation, this itinerary truly ticks all the boxes.
Unmapped also has adventures departing in Indonesia, Mexico, Morocco and Oman. All itineraries are a kaleidoscope of adventure, culture, culinary delights and unique experiences. With a strong focus on building community outside your comfort zone, Unmapped works hard to make sure your group will share memories that keep new friends familiar.


If this is sounding like your next escape then you’re in luck because their next departure for the ‘Sri Lanka’s got Soul’ itinerary is 17 November and the spots are filling up fast!  There is no time like the present to take the leap and experience Sri Lanka through the lens of an Unmapped traveller.
