COVID-19 Exceptional Travel Advisory Notice

As countries continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel and border restrictions, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. Any country or area may restrict travel without notice.

Updated 1st May 2020

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and in line with the FCO advice on avoiding all but essential travel, Distant Journeys made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operating all our tours, with effect from 17 March 2020 until 31st August 2020.

As a responsible tour operator, Distant Journeys offered all customers who were affected by the tour cancellation two options: either to receive a full refund of all monies paid, or to transfer their reservation to a later departure date.  We are pleased to advise that all customers have now been refunded or transferred accordingly.

We are constantly monitoring and reviewing the advice of the UK Government, the FCO and the governments of all our destination countries, and as soon as international travel becomes possible once more, we will look forward to resuming our programme of tours and welcoming all customers on their Distant Journeys tour.


Following the recent outbreak of coronavirus, we are following government guidelines to work from home. Due to this we are unable to send brochures out at the present time. We will post these out at our earliest convenience but in the meantime you can download all of our brochures by selecting  'I'll download it' below.
