Slow Adventure Packages
What is Slow Adventure?
A chance to explore and engage with wild, open and natural places. To journey through breath-taking landscapes at a slower immersive pace. Creating memories through meaningful experiences as you invest time in a place, in its traditions and community. Surrendering to the natural forces of the environment as you reflect, reconnect and become closer to nature.
Each slow adventure has been crafted to offer unique experiences by working with carefully selected local people and businesses.
Slow Adventure forms part of the Slow Adventure in the Northern Territories Project which is co-financed by the European Union's Northern Periphery and Arctic Program.
