From surfing in Costa Rica, stunning lakes and volcanoes in Guatemala, sublime reefs in Belize, to hiking Machu Picchu in Peru, exploring the wonders of Galapagos Islands, encountering wildlife in the Amazon and Pantanal, the extraordinary salt flats of Bolivia, and the glaciers of Argentina – the options are endless.
Africa offers you so much, from iconic safari to tropical beaches, from mountains to medinas. Of course Africa is home to the finest wildlife encounters, including the ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo. There’s also gorilla and chimpanzee trekking in Rwanda.
Asia has incredible diversity, from the snow capped Himalayas of India, China, Nepal and Bhutan, to the jungles of Thailand, Burma and Indonesia, with ancient wonders such as Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, the Great Wall, the Taj Mahal, Laos’ Luang Prabang, and the natural majesty of places such as Vietnam’s Halong Bay, the volcanoes of Sumatra, Burma’s Inle Lake and James Bond Island in Thailand – there is much to explore.
We have admittedly pushed the boundaries of Europe, and have included Turkey and even Georgia in our definition. Watch this space for new additions: Croatia and Slovenia!
Your choices in the Pacific are diverse: from the vast wonders of Australia, to epic New Zealand, and tropical Fiji, some of the highlights include exploring the Blue Mountains, diving the Great Barrier Reef, encountering wildlife in Kangaroo Island, learning about Aboriginal culture in Uluru and Kakadu in Australia; in New Zealand enjoy a heli-flight to Milford Sound, sailing in the Bay of Islands, whale watching in Kaikoura, Maori history and geysers in Rotorua and kayaking in Abel Tasman National Park. Finally, in Fiji, explore the gorgeous islands, surf, snorkel, dive, kayak, or simply chill out.
North America currently consists of USA (including Hawaii) and Mexico, providing many amazing luxury family adventures. Watch this space for Canada to be added soon as well.
The USA is, in our opinion, incredibly underrated as a travel destination, with breathtaking locations such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Tetons, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon and Glacier National Parks. Some of the world’s greatest cities are here: New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, Chicago, Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles to name but a few.
