About us

by Tanja
5 days in Cape Town

we are Tanja and Will, in 2012 we both left our full-time jobs to discover the world.


Australia is where our paths crossed and since then we’ve never stopped travelling together! With bags on our backs and cameras in the hands, we seek adventures, try all kind of food and meet new people.

Since then, we’ve explored over 20 countries together, we have climbed active volcanoes, watched the sun rise over Indonesian temples, explored every corner of the Australian coast, walked among the ruins of lost cities and swam with whales in the Pacific Ocean.

Tanja is a journalist and social media marketer with a passion for storytelling, photography and tropical destinations. When she’s not too busy travelling, she can often be found spreading wanderlust with Instagram feeds and unique itineraries (and can plan the most epic trips in her sleep).

We created Ultimate Detours to share some of the incredible, places and human stories we discovered during our travels. With our stories we want to inspire you to explore unknown places, to sleep under the stars and to go on new adventures.

Ultimate Detours is a travel blog dedicated to nomadic souls and adventures who go in search of real life experiences and authentic places where locals are the only guides.

People who want to see the world a little bit differently, in a responsible and ethical way too.

Travellers like you.

 With Ultimate Detours we will show you how to plan the basics and how to leave everything else to chance, we will take you to new places and give travel tips to help you planning your next journey.
