Nashira is the fourth brightest star in the constellation of Capricorn. Its name comes from the Arabic phrase Al Sa’d al Nashirah, which means “the bearer of good news” or “the lucky one.” This and other stars of the firmament helped sailors in days gone by to find their way on their voyages in search of new lands. With a nod to that search for uncharted territory and being guided by the constellations, Nashira came to be: a travel agency with personalized trips that can turn traveling the world into a true adventure.
With all the information that is available today on the internet, it may seem surprising that there are still travel agencies in existence; but, perhaps, travel agencies are more essential than ever nowadays, as travelers are increasingly seeking to avoid overcrowded tourist spots that everyone knows about. Nashira is a travel agency that can help with unique plans – and it’s not just any travel agency, it is a leading one that has organized the honeymoons of famous athletes, businessmen, and politicians. Headquartered in Pamplona, the company was created by Helena Areta, a globetrotter who is familiar, like none other, with all the most recondite corners of our planet.
Helena has traveled all the continents choosing beaches, restaurants, villages, mountains, and hotels and then recommending them to her clients. Listening to her is like immersing yourself in a great adventure: crossing rivers in Southeast Asia atop an elephant, spending a night in a treehouse suspended 25 meters in the air in the heart of the Amazon, flying in a helicopter over a glacier in Alaska to subsequently land on the glacier and go trekking with crampons, staying on a private island, spending the night in a palace in Rajasthan, enjoying a feast in a castle in New Zealand, taking a dip at the pristine beaches of the Cook Islands, and sleeping in the African Savannah surrounded by wild animals. The innate curiosity and desire to search for exclusive and authentic experiences of Nashira’s founder have helped her to design trips that will surprise any customer.
The personalized service that Nashira offers goes much beyond simply designing travel experiences. Customers have a 24-hour contact number that they can use to ask for advice and to take care of any incidents that may arise during the journey. Thanks to this service, some of the company’s clients were able to, for example, get a plane ticket to leave Japan after the last typhoon, escape from an island of Indonesia after an earthquake, change their route after the political uprisings in Thailand, and reschedule their trip to avoid the hurricane that hit the Caribbean – turning these uncontrollable events into yet another story of their adventures. Because they are extremely familiar with the places they recommend and the people who live there, Helena Areta and her team are able to deal with any type of incident and they have enough resources to be able to offer alternatives that will surprise their clients even more than the original proposals. After all, at the end of the day, their job is to guide travelers around the world and to get them back to their homes with a lot of good news and incredible stories – a little like what the famous star Nashira used to do for sailors.
