If that sounds familiar, LeAnn and Brandon Morris, owners of adventure tour company Flashpacker Connect, are ready for you.

Flashpacker Connect was founded in 2015 to create handcrafted, unique tours around the globe, to provide a top-notch experience for clients, and to support local economies while doing it.

The world awaits, and Flashpacker Connect is there to help you on your way. Check out these five international destinations to explore this winter.

Serranía de la Macarena, Colombia

The Amazon, Orinoco, and Andes regions come together at the biologically diverse, stunningly beautiful La Macarena National Park in Colombia. Flashpacker Connect offers a four-day tour that includes hiking to remote areas, canoeing, sightseeing, and visiting swimming beneath gorgeous waterfalls.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

A trek up Mt Kilimanjaro is a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the 'roof of the world.' Flashpacker Connect's nine-day journey takes the Machame Route, giving you more time to acclimatize and increase your chances of reaching the summit. Make no mistake...no matter how many days you have, this a challenging expedition.

Experience Jordan

For a bit of adventure mixed with a whole of ancient culture, join Flashpacker Connect on an eight-day trip to Jordan. Explore the Rose Red city of Petra, float in the Red Sea, sleep under the stars, and shift your perspective of the world in the company of an English-speaking guide.

Los Glaciares & Fitz Roy, Argentina

When you think of bucket list destinations, do you think of Patagonia? Us, too. Check out the iconic Los Glaciares and Fitz Roy in Los Glacieres National Park on this six-day trek. Each trek includes a bi-lingual guide to lead the way, and enough epic scenery to fill more than one camera card. Bring backups.

Multisport Southern Thailand

Can't pick just one type of adventure to take? Then don't. On this 11-day exploration with Flashpacker Connect, experience hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, rock climbing, and a bit of relaxing in southern Thailand. Accommodations include a floating bungalow, a boutique tent, and deluxe hotel rooms. Um...can we come with you?
