greece group tour
Trip Highlight: Shipwreck Beach on Zakynthos Island, Greece

 

Despite the strange new world we live in and the toll it’s taken on all of us, PhotoFly Travel Club is as thankful as ever this holiday season. Though 2020 has been a year mostly without travel, our members endless support and encouragement has been a galvanizing force by which we’ve continued to create new adventures and re-schedule as many trips as possible for 2021.  This Thanksgiving, we’re blessed and grateful for our wonderful community, who continue to stick with us as we persevere into the new year. Thank you all and cheers to a 2021 filled with incredible adventures around the world, new travel buddies, meaningful connections, and of course, stunning images capturing it all!

 

Our travels continue next fall with a Thanksgiving special “2 for 1” adventure release. First, we’ll encounter the otherworldly landscapes, exploding geysers, endless waterfalls, and, with a little luck, witness & capture the Northern Lights in Iceland!

 

If Iceland’s a bit chilly for you then set your eyes east and join us in the other land of the Gods: Greece. It’s not just the endless history, culture, & art that this country is world famous for. The “birthplace of the West” is chock full of idyllic islands with sea arches, dramatic ocean cliffs, and the bluest water you’ll ever see. We’ll explore a couple of our favorites along with the incredible mountains, ruins, lakes, & villages throughout central & northern Greece. More details on both of these new trip releases below…

 

THREE SPOTS LEFTColorful Cuba this January! Cuba is officially open for tourism and we’re thrilled to be one of the first to return to this stunning island with beautiful people, amazing music, & dancing on the streets!

Mystical Delphi: Amazing photography and breathtaking scenery from the slopes of Mount Parnassus await. The Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi is known as the home for the most famous oracle of ancient Greece and during this time was regarded as the center of the world!
  • Meteora: A real photography highlight on our Greece small group adventure, this region is famous for its beautiful monasteries standing between earth and sky atop huge pinnacle rocks. The unique formations of these small mountains are like Greece’s version of the incredible Buddhist monasteries of the Himalayas. The history, treasures, and beautiful architecture of the ancient Byzantine monasteries is like the icing on the cake!

Travel Club Update: COVID-19 

PhotoFly Travel Club takes our current global pandemic extremely seriously. As such, a number of our 2020 adventures have had to be cancelled & postponed like most in our travel industry. We want nothing more than all of our members to stay healthy & happy during these trying times. We hope everyone is playing their part by social distancing as much as possible. The more people who properly follow this crucial tactic in our country, and everyone around the world, the faster we will conquer and come out stronger & better prepared when this happens again.

As of today, September 29th, we remain hopeful that travel will become feasible and safe again for most travelers early next year. In fact many countries, including most of Europe, have been on the decline for months now.  It’s important to acknowledge that these are mainly countries that have enacted strict social distancing measures much sooner and in a more timely manner than the USA has been able to. Good news is most of the countries on our upcoming calendar fit this description! For more details about the predictions and scientific modeling in each state AND many countries around the world go here: https://covid19.healthdata.org/ (you can select any state or country for the location specific predictions)

Enhanced Procedures & Safety Measures

As we get ready to explore the world with you again soon, our travel club has begun to implement new guidelines and practices for the “Post-Covid World”. Some of them are listed below. Safety is #1 and the ability to experience a destination without limitations due to the pandemic is #2

1. Country Specific Qualifications must be met to run the tour. Some of these include:
a. Daily infection incidence must show stable or decreasing trends for at least 30 days
b. Population Infected must be equal to or lower than .007% per 100K people
c. Hospital resources in country must be sufficient for predicted modeling at least 3 months after the start date of said trip.
3. PhotoFly Enhanced Safety Practices Including:
a. Masks for everyone in vehicles and other enclosed spaces
b. Sanitizer available at all times/ Surface Cleanings done constantly
c. Social distancing practices as much as possible & no contact health/temperature checks
d. Small Groups Only = Lower Risk. Only time will tell and we’re following the situation very carefully. Our pledge is to share nothing but scientific evidence and advice given by the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO). We will base our decisions in the coming months solely on these two sources. 

We know this is going to be a difficult time for all of us, in a myriad of ways. PhotoFly Travel Club is committed to building amazing experiences for years to come. We will get through this together and come out on the other side with even more amazing trips.

We wish everyone nothing but the best navigating this crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all to remain healthy and persevere until we overcome. 

Much love and gratitude to all of our members,

Steve, Andrew, Catalin, Michelle, Raya, & the rest of our PhotoFly Team!

 


 

Join us!

We’re beyond excited to announce our new partnership with the extremely successful non-profit, Not Just Tourist. For 25 years their “mission is to help those who urgently need healthcare by matching tourists who are visiting developing countries with local clinics and hospitals in need of medical supplies. Not Just Tourists is the meeting point for travelers and donors. We provide the facilities and connections for hospitals, clinics, and medical suppliers to donate materials, and then we pack them into suitcases for world travelers to bring them where they’re needed most in the countries they’re already visiting anyway!”

On many PhotoFly Adventures going forward we’ll be working with NJT to bring suitcases filled with medical supplies to clinics and hospitals in the same regions we’ll already be exploring!
