Words from Bruce...

Dear Friends,

I have two types of departures. Each year I offer a limited number of departures to exciting destinations with an established program and set dates that I’d like you to join. Either one of my trusted colleagues or myself will lead these trips. Please request the current list and I will send you the latest. If you are interested in a particular destination that appears on the list, I can then send you a detailed itinerary and description for that destination. Some are short and easy, some have overnights at comfortable lodges, and, at the other extreme, I continue to offer true exploratory trips to regions which have not yet been transformed by contact with our values but which are quickly coming into the tourist age. It’s a wide spectrum of trips. Comfort is a basic part of the journey for some. Mystery and unknowns are essential aspects in others. Certain trips can be demanding. Please read the respective itinerary carefully for full details and contact me for further information.

There are also trips for individuals or private parties at a time of your convenience. These trips are time-tried treks that Ibex has operated previously, some many times. Ibex offers a wide variety of departures that are truly unique along routes not offered elsewhere with variations that bring out the regional character far better than typical routes. I know all these places personally. If you want to experience a bit of the untouched world, act now. Sign up today. I can arrange such a trip for you, your friends or your family. What better gift would there be for you and your children or your grandkids? How about a business partner? Some trips have comfort. Some are moderate. Some are really tough!

The spirit and soul of Ibex remains strong. The world continues calling to adventure. I think you understand that calling. There are so many wonderful, exhilarating trips yet to be taken. My goal remains discovery. Come join Ibex! As I have for over forty years, I’m still finding new places, new routes, and new ways for us to travel together. I’m looking forward to seeing you this year on one of Ibex trips.
