We Share Your Passion
Take Your Travel Experience Further: The Hosted Trip Difference Unparalleled Service and Knowledge Every Step of the Way If you were to spin the globe and place a finger on nearly any continent, chances are Frontiers has created a customized and unforgettable experience for a client there. We can help you chase Atlantic salmon on the Kola Peninsula in Russia or confirm the exclusive penthouse suite in Paris. If saltwater flats fishing in the Seychelles or a month long excursion in New Zealand is more your style – we have you covered. Our destination specialists know the private trout streams in Chile, spring creeks in the American West and how to pick the best hotel across Asia. We share your passion for the ultimate travel experience. With escorted group departures, we take it a step further. We not only customize your journey, we are right there with you every step of the way. Escorted trip participants receive the same level of detail in their pretrip documents and final itineraries as all clients. Plus, they receive first-hand knowledge from years of time our hosts have spent in the field. We are there to answer questions about fly selection or knots; share casting guidance on effectively fishing an unknown river or simply tidy up your back cast. We’ll even loan you a pair of sunglasses – all at no additional cost. You will explore the world with like-minded travelers and create memories that turn into stories for generations to come. Covering five of the seven continents, we have escorted clients on trout fishing trips in Montana, Argentina, Chile, Spain and New Zealand; saltwater fishing trips to Christmas Island, Bahamas, Belize and Mexico; followed Africa’s majestic animal populations on a photographic safari and participated in the occasional cast and blast in Alaska. If fly fishing and wingshooting are not high on your list, we also offer an array of exclusive leisure activities each year. Past trips included The Galapagos Islands, India, Myanmar (Burma), Chile, Egypt and the Asian Subcontinent. All of our trips are escorted by industry experts including Barry & Cathy Beck, and Frontiers own Mike and Kristene Fitzgerald, Mollie Fitzgerald and Tarquin Millington-Drake. Collectively, this group has gathered thousands of passport stamps and will ensure that you have one of the best travel experiences of your life.
