CUSTOM DESIGNED UPSCALE GAY TOURS FOR MEN

Adventure Bound Expeditions was created more than thirty years ago to offer custom adventure tours for gay men. We put together and personally conduct 1-2 tours every year to exciting destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe, Central America, South America, Australia, and New Zealand.

Our upscale gay tours include rafting, hiking, kayaking, and nature observation. We’ve climbed active volcanoes in South America, kayaked Ethiopia’s Omo River in Ethiopia, canoed on Lake Biakal in Siberia, trekked to remote Indian villages up in the Andes of Bolivia, hiked through the Pyrenees in Europe, and taken safaris in many regions of Africa.

On our upscale gay tours, we also help you learn about the local environment, meet the locals, and find out more about the cultures of many societies, all along with other men and with the support of knowledgeable local guides and an American tour director with thirty years of adventure travel experience.

Our small group size (eight-twelve men) also offers great opportunities to develop lasting friendships while you’re enjoying exploring exciting exotic locales.

Looking for a great gay-owned, gay-focused tour company? Book your next tour with Adventure Bound Expeditions.

Florida Keys Kayaking Adventure – 2TravelDads

Florida Keys Kayaking - The Globetrotter Guys

Florida Keys Kayaking was one of our favorite parts of our road trip from Miami to Key West (mmm, key lime pie!). The best places to kayak in Southern Florida are spread out between the many islands, and they aren’t all where you’d expect. This is our guide to kayaking with kids in the Florida Keys, and any of these spots are great as an adult too.

As we go through the many kayaking spots in the Keys, you’ll see that some of the launch sites are in state parks and others are public access via beaches or boat ramps. Wherever you’re putting in, and whether it’s a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard, always be aware of wildlife, underwater obstacles, and other boats. Remember, safety first in all things if you want to have an amazing Caribbean vacation!

Best Places for Florida Keys Kayaking

Kayaking through the backcountry waters of the Keys, and you’ll see one of the world’s most diverse marine life ecosystems. The quiet, shallow backwater region of flats and mangrove islands has inspired many naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts to combine environmental tourism with the sport of sea kayaking. The opportunity to explore such serene, untouched areas is very special.

Japanese Gay Life – The Nomadic Boys

Japanese Gay Life - The Nomadic Boys

Our gay friend Shintaro from Tokyo tells us what Japanese gay life is like from his perspective in this fascinating interview. We love Japan. We’ve been fortunate to visit several times. Each time we leave, we say sayonara with a strong thirst to return for more!

As a gay couple traveling in Japan, we’ve always felt extremely welcome, everywhere, never receiving any judgment or raised eyebrows. To our foreign eyes, Japan feels like you’ve taken a time machine into the future. Everything is so much more advanced here, so clean, so impeccable, where trains arrive/leave on time, correct to the second!

And the Japanese themselves? Well, they’re just the icing on top – you couldn’t ask for a more welcoming and respectful nation. Everything is well received with a sweet, warm smile and a humble bow.

All About Japanese Gay Life

As we said, that’s through our superficial perspective as queer travelers visiting. What’s the reality like for the Japanese LGBTQ community? We often hear that whilst the Japanese are very welcoming to gay foreigners, on a local level, the country is very conservative when it comes to LGBTQ rights.

16 Facts About Argentina – The Nomadic Boys

16 Facts About Argentina - The Nomadic Boys
Following our travels in South America, we’ve rounded up our top fun and interesting facts about Argentina.

We sure did after spending half a year traveling around Argentina as a gay couple. We started our trip in the uber-cool capital of Buenos Aires and headed all the way south to Patagonia for some of the best treks we’ve ever done. Along the way, we also visited cities like Córdoba, Mendoza, Rosario, and Puerto Madryn.

Our conclusion? This is a place begging to be explored! Some of the most stunning raw natural surroundings, a rich cultural heritage that include Evita and the tango, a delicious (non-vegan friendly!) culinary journey, and arguably the hottest people on our planet who (in Marlene’s own words) throw themselves at you!

Marlene Dietrich was definitely on point when she said this. The Argentinians are an extremely passionate hot-blooded bunch with their own unique style of Spanish, spoken with strong Italian-like charisma. They will instantly embrace you into their lives and in return, you will no doubt quickly fall in love with them.

1. Argentina has the best steak in the world!

Argentinians are super passionate about their meat and it shows: their steak is world-famous! This is largely due to the abundance of cows. According to the Cattle Network, Argentina is 1 of 5 countries in the world (along with Uruguay, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia) which has more cows than people.
