Explore were one of the original pioneers of travel to Lebanon so we were thrilled to be be able to return to this beautiful country in 2009, following on from a period of unrest.
Due to the massive success and sell out of our Lebanon tours for 2009 and spring 2010 we have added a further seven new departures in Spring and Autumn to this little gem of a country. Hurry and book your place as these spaces are bound to sell like hot cakes!
A diverse country
Even though Lebanon is tiny – smaller than Northern Ireland – it offers a deeply rich cultural, natural and archaeological milieu for exploration. The country has played a major role in world history as a crossroads of the Middle East and meeting place of ancient civilisations. It boasts stunning rugged mountains, fertile valleys including many vineyards and a long coastal strip that was a hub of tourism in recent times. Read more about Lebanon here.
Our tours to Lebanon
Our tours to the country visit many historic places from different millennia, following in the footsteps of Hannibal, Cleopatra and Richard the Lionheart. We are also able to walk in the remote and spectacular Qadisha Valley with its monasteries, forests and hidden villages. Furthermore, there are plenty of chances to experience the hospitality and friendliness of the Lebanese people.
