DECEMBER 2023 | MONTHLY NEWS

With only 10 sleeps to go, we are well and truly enjoying the Christmas Spirit here at Back Track (although some of us love Christmas tunes more than others! 😉 )

For us, 2023 has truly been a year of joy as we’ve loved having amazing conversations with so many of you about getting out there and exploring once again. In fact, we’ve had around 600 of those conversations and have made over 460 new adventure bookings!

More than ever we’re grateful to you, our extended Back Track family, for your support this year, and we’re so excited about 2024 – our 40th anniversary!

We wish you all the very best for the holiday season and hope you enjoy the festivities with loved ones near and far.

Please note we will be closed for the public holidays and while we won’t be in the office on 27, 28 & 29 December, we’ll have skeleton staff available by phone and email.

From our family to yours,

The Back Track Adventures team
