The joy that travel brings can seldom be the adventure we look forward in our life. To break free from the monotony and our digital cases and step outside our boundaries to explore a world beyond. This world may be sitting right outside our doors or may lie miles away – but we’d never find it unless we start looking. This is what Unventured’s Let’s Step Out video talks about, that we all once in a while crave adventures and getaways from our daily life.
And after months of indoor confinements, we know you crave this too. This blog is our effort towards helping you plan a much-needed getaway – half day, full day or weekend, active adventures and staycations.
Explore the vivacious countryside of Bengaluru at the pace of a pedal or on a day long hike through the lesser known hills on the outskirts. Indulge in a day packed with active adventures, rejuvenating your body and soul after months of indoors confinement. An excellent way to bond with family and friends is to do some amidst nature.
