Odysway was born out of the passion for backpacking off the beaten track. The kind of experience that shakes us up with the unexpected, wonderful discoveries and beautiful encounters. All of this creating journeys where time slows down for us to enjoy and value the moment.
We believe that the magic of traveling can only be experienced when an adventure is lived without constraint, taking our time to discover a country through its people and culture. By limiting the number of stops in a journey, we accept to visit less to live more.
At the end, we realise how different we are from who we used to be. How much we learnt new skills and abilities, how we spent some fabulous time with locals, simply by letting things slow down. With Odysway, instead of planning to look for the wonders of travelling, you will let them come to you.
Immersive travel : A true transformative experience
Odysway intends to promote alternatives to classic, usual travel. We want to allow more people to discover themselves by discovering the world.
We chose to specialize in immersive travel, as described by the Oxford dictionnary “the state of being completely involved in something (e.g : culture, language)”.
For Odysway, immersive travel means to slow down, and take time to integrate another culture by being open to new things. It is also a real balance between exploring a country and an immersive experience.
This is an opportunity for people to connect with a new environment, realize that they are far from home and come back as a new person to live their daily life more consciously.
Travelling would not be a mere accumulation of experiences or a form of consumption, but mostly and simply time. Time for themselves, time for other people, time for the world.
Our agency’s commitment is to provide our travelers with a structure, some organization for them to live a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience. We directly cooperate with local guides, which does not involve any intermediary. This is why our adventures are available at reasonable and affordable price.

Offset the carbon footprint of each flight taken
For each adventure, the carbon emissions from flights is calculated by Odysway. Then, we plant trees to offset emissions for each passenger.
Limit collateral effects of tourism on local populations
Odysway narrows down the number of passengers to reduce the negative impact on local populations. Our travelers can discover their cultures, skills, lifestyles without disrupting their daily life.
