About Fred.\ Discover
Carefully crafted with the discerning traveller in mind, our holidays are sure to take pride of place on many a bucket list; yet travelling to exotic destinations needn’t mean sacrificing home comforts. Offering two styles of travel, ‘Authentic’ and ‘Comfort’, Fred.\ Discover gives you the choice to experience the wonders of the world, your way. If you are looking to immerse yourself into the local customs and traditions of your chosen destination, aren’t afraid to muck in, and quite like the idea of camping under the stars for example, then look out for our ‘Authentic’ selection. If on the other hand, you love the idea of a bit of adventure but would prefer to stay in more comfortable surroundings such as hotels and lodges, with all the trappings of luxury you are used to, chose one of our ‘Comfort’ holidays.
An adventure can mean many things to many people; it could mean anything from shopping in a local market, to exploring that bucket list destination, or embarking on a physical challenge. With various types of holidays available, you are certain find one to suit you; choose from walking & trekking, wildlife & wilderness, food & drink, family, cycling, history & culture, cruising and much more!
