The Flashpacking Mentality

The flashpacker is an independent traveller that combines a backpacker’s sense of exploration and adventure with a little more comfort, budget and style.

Most backpackers that have turned 30, believe that they have finally earned the right to a private bathroom (among other things). And with age comes wisdom (and a little bit more income), which means that, by keep travelling smartly, you can still stretch your budget to explore a destination to the fullest, but on the same time allow (and afford) small luxuries such as boutique hotels, lots of extra activities, and swifter flights instead of arduous busses.

However, the love of the freedom of independent travel is still strong, as is the longing to explore as far as our hearts desire, and the need to experience the local culture with all the senses. So Indie Horizons was created to offer just that, to organise unique tailor-made itineraries that will help make the most of our precious travel time, seeing the maximum possible in a destination, but with the minimum possible expenditure of time and money.

Travel as far and as long as your heart desires.

Magic bazaars, towering mosques, scents of spices and sounds of morning worship. An assault on all the senses, eternal mysterious lands waiting to be unveiled.

The forbidden edge of the world was a crossroads of civilisations since the dawn of time. Discover ancient secrets and exotic rituals, or the Down Under vibe.

The glorious New World holds hidden charms for every traveller. A tango of jungles and high peaks, ruins and white beaches, with shows and skyscrapers on top.

Africa

The sands of the scorching desert, the drums of the deepest jungle, the safaris of the endless savannah, beckon the adventurous spirit to the cradle of mankind.

The birthplace of modern civilisation, full of medieval castles, romantic tales and huge cities, ideal to hunt for museum exhibits or the northern lights.

Personal Travel Consultant

Spoilt for choice, stressed on time?

Get a personalised destination showcase.

With this service you will get an experienced traveller to act as your own personal travel consultant, with firsthand knowledge of the destinations, to help you design the trip of a lifetime.

We will be the first to agree that the world is a vast place, providing you with dozens of different and beautiful destinations to choose from, each and every one more beguiling than the other. In addition, there are many details that are better discussed in person, rather than through a short e-mail, message or phone call, relaxed around a nice cup of coffee or a cold glass of beer.

We arrange personal appointments, at a place of your choice (work, home, café, or even online), to help you narrow down your trip choices, and highlight the selected destinations with detailed information and authentic audiovisual material, sharing with you our knowledge, photos and personal experiences.

Price: 10-20€/hour

The price depends on the number of travellers involved and the meeting’s location and time. The minimum charge is 2 hours, and the service is offered in English or in Greek. In person presentations are only available within the greater metropolitan area of Athens, Greece.

Guide Services

Feeling a little lost or overwhelmed by the destination?

We are here to help.

We provide tour leader/escort guide services upon demand for any of our destinations, acting as an intermediate liaison between the local guides and the group, managing the trip and providing translation to (or from) English as needed.

Our people are not (usually) official tour guides, but experienced travellers that are already familiar with that particular destination.

This service is mainly available in Greece, but can also be arranged for any part of the world if booked at least two to three months in advance to ensure availability.

Price: 80-160€/day

The price is an estimate per day spent with the group and does not include the additional person tour cost, meal and personal daily allowance depending on the destination, and any entrance or activities fees. All costs are divided equally between the number of group members. The free or half days, including the start and end of the trip, may still count as full days for this service. The guide will share a double room, if possible and upon agreement.

Always remember that everything in our trips is customisable. You select the length of the itinerary, the period of travel, the sights you want to see, the activities you want to experience, the accommodation type or means of transport you prefer, whether you’d like a guide or not, and we create a unique mix just for you!
