What we're about

Welcome to our Travel Club! We are an international community of travellers, based on Athens, eager to explore as much as possible the sights and experiences that our wondrous planet has to offer. Our campsite is open for everyone to share information, stories and ideas about travelling Further of the Horizon, as near or as far as the heart desires.

We organise several travel-related events each month, plus the occasional party:

- Traveller's Pub: Socialise with fellow travellers and exchange travel tales.
- Traveller's Lunchbox: Taste different world cuisines or local Greek delicacies.
- Traveller's Path: Urban walks discovering the Athenian neighbourhoods.
- Traveller's Trail: Short nature hikes in the nearby mountains of Attica.
- Traveller's Daytrip/Holidays: Single/multi-day trips to explore the Greek countryside and islands.
- Traveller's Quest: Adventure game day trips with travel-related scenarios.
- Traveller's Lounge: Our weekly Flipboard magazine and radio show (currently on hiatus).

Our experienced team also designs custom trips to every corner of the world, part of our "Around the World in 80 Trips" programme, allowing travellers to discover new destinations at affordable costs. Some of our top destinations include:
- Cuba
- Iceland
- Morocco
- Tanzania
- India
- Sri Lanka
- Indonesia
and many more!

Indie Horizons has an annual membership tip of 2€, to help us cover our organisational costs, which is paid at the first event of the year a traveller participates (on top of the event's fee, if any).
