Optional Activity Package (OAP)

Each year, nearly 100% of our participants purchase ISV’s Optional Activity Package to enhance their adventure tour. The OAP includes a range of action-packed activities to do during some of your free days to make this the best adventure of your life!

The OAP is excellent value for money as ISV negotiates prices to ensure even the most budget-minded participants get an incredible deal. We've chosen a diversity of cultural, fun and challenging activities to complement the Tour's included activities that keep the adrenaline flowing while still allowing you plenty of time to relax.

Another bonus is that purchasing the OAP takes away the hassles of researching and booking your own activities. There are no risks of missing out due to limited availability - ISV secures your spot through this package- don’t miss out. Join the group!
