Belize is a small but incredibly diverse country, with dense jungle to the west and Caribbean seas to the east. For divers, it doesn’t get better, as there are more than 400 islands, the longest unbroken barrier reef in the western hemisphere and 185 miles of coastline. Head out to the Great Blue Hole spearfish for your lunch in the Turneffe Atoll; come face-to-face with sharks in coral reefs; and enjoy lunches on hidden beaches. Moving inland, take a helicopter to a luxury jungle lodge, visiting incredible Mayan ruins, caves and waterfalls en route.
Despite being one of the smallest countries in South America, Ecuador holds the title for having the biggest biodiversity per area in the world. The pristine Amazon tropical rainforest provides a unique environment in which you can detach yourself from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, clear your mind and reconnect with nature. During your experience in the forest you’ll discover the endless species of birds, amphibians, monkeys, peccaries and even the majestic puma; swim in secret waterfalls; and take advantage of the fully-equipped spa and yoga deck. You will also spend time with indigenous
communities within the Achuar territory. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, providing an insight into a culture and way of life long forgotten to the modern world.
Scotland is a country of incredible variety: agrestic traditions in the way of fly fishing and falconry; dramatic mountains where you can climb, mountain bike and scramble; seas and island coves where whales, dolphins and seals hunt and play; deep-rooted culture in the form of castles and relics; and seafood that is minutes from the plate. With so much opportunity to create an unforgettable experience, we’ve focused on the West Coast and surrounding islands, working with trusted local contacts to ensure every day is unique.
There are few more beautiful places on Earth than the province of East Nusa Tenggara on board a Phinisi boat. You’ll sail to a deserted jungle coastline to surf one of the best uncrowded waves left in Indonesia. Try your hand at spearfishing for marlin and tuna – your personal chef cooking your catch. Leaving your boat, you’ll head in-land to a luxury lodge. Spend the afternoon paddle boarding with water buffalo and float past everyday village life along the banks of the Wanukaka River.
Oman is starting to garner the recognition it deserves as a fantastic destination for experiential travel and adventure. Explore the stunning Dhofar coastline, swimming with dolphins and green turtles; soar high over the russet red desert in paramotors; thrash the sand dunes in high-speed buggies; and sleep in luxury tents far from civilisation deep within the Empty Quarter. Travel through the breathtaking scenery of the Hajar mountains and spend time with local Bedouin tribesmen, soaking up the vibrancy and colour of the bustling souks and historic cities. This is a true middle-eastern adventure.
