Hey, we’re Stray!

We’re a travel company that likes to do things a little differently.

We challenge the traditional concept of a “tour” and give adventurous travellers what they crave: fun, adventure and the opportunity to give back.

That’s why we created the Stray Adventure Travel Network. See more. Do More.

It all started with hop-on/hop-off tours and evolved throughout the years to:

✅ small group tours with ✅ accommodation included... And more, much more.
