Tours To Unusual Destinations

Founded by Xavier Raychell Blancharde, “Travelling The Unknown” is a travel company that organises off the beaten track tours to places that people might know little about, or have the wrong impressions. These tend to be places that the media misrepresents, or omits completely. Currently, the focus has been on Syria, where we’re running regular group tours, which aim to reduce the cost for independent travellers.

The next trip will be a 7-day tour to Syria in April 2019, costing 1200 USD (10% discount for early bookings). For more information about our Syria tours, click this link.

We also publish travel-related content covering travels to North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq and other places! Our blog is about places that most would not consider holiday destinations, and places where most people would not go.

Below are some of my docuvlogs, as well as other travel-related videos I’ve uploaded on YouTube.

Below is an interactive map of the countries which I’ve blogged about. It won’t work on some smart phones unless desktop view is on.
