If you’re up for exploring nature at its finest, then the Swedish Lapland experience is the perfect escapade for you. Enjoy a winter safari staying in stunning lodges, tents, tree houses and fill your days with activities like stargazing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing.
Santa Claus may be the main attraction for the vast majority of visitors crossing the Arctic Circle, but Lapland has a lot more to offer than elves and grottos. Potentially one of the most breathtaking natural wonders of the world, this mystical land spells of an intensely beautiful landscape of snowbound forests, frozen lakes and vast expanses of tundra.
There’s a magical stillness in winter, and although the sun barely skims the horizon, the sky glows a deep blue and the snow seems almost luminous in the oblique light for a few hours every day. After dark, the moon and stars are piercingly bright and if you’re lucky, you might stand an excellent chance of witnessing the mesmerizing swirl of the Northern Lights. Whether it’s husky riding at sunrise or going on a night tour catch the captivating emerald green sky, do immerse yourself in the authentic wilderness as you embark on this Swedish Lapland adventure.
Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific is often called the most beautiful island in the world. Located in the island of Tahiti, it towers over the ocean and is crowned by a circle of majestic peaks. Moorea, another island in the northwest of Tahiti soars magically out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet – exactly how you would imagine a Tahitian holiday destination on the islands in the South Seas.
Stay at Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island to enjoy the luxury atop the crystal clear blue lagoons. The villa offers tropical paradise boasting suites with private bathrooms and terraces. Luxurious and expansive, it features an exquisite restaurant, bar, cigar cave, spa, infinity swimming pool and recreational facilities.
From the amazing scenery to the privacy and adventurous hike of Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora is truly the most romantic island in the world. How can we leave this picture perfect destination out of our bucket list?
Discover lemurs, baobabs and stay in luxurious accommodation with complimentary transfers complete with an English-speaking guide and private air charters in Madagascar!
A compelling destination that provides a unique experience for travellers, Madagascar is an intoxicating island located on the Indian Ocean. In order to get the most out of this wild adventure, make sure you hire experienced private local guides who can show and explain the mind-boggling sights to you in detail.
The highly photographed Amber Mountain has a big supply of bird’s nest ferns and strangler figs, along with tiny chameleons among peaks spiking to 1,500-metres. There’s also Masoala, where along with the rare red-ruffed and woolly nocturnal lemurs, you’ll find mountainous valleys dropping down to white beaches. And if you like your wildlife in a photogenic setting, then head to Anjajavy Private Reserve, home to the tiny mouse lemur and where forests, mangroves and limestone rock formations end in stunning sandy coves.
Tibet to Nepal
Embark on this overland journey beginning from Lhasa and ending in Sheghar. This exciting and adventurous discovery will entail visits to monasteries, palaces, scenic drive or even a day trip to Mount Everest Base Camp. You’ll be in awe when you catch a glimpse of the world’s highest mountain, the beautiful living goddess Kumari, and the colourful chaos of the busy streets of Kathmandu.
The region of Tibet has become a byword for spirituality, with Buddhism reflected in nearly every aspect of its art and culture. Within these sacred grounds, centuries-old monasteries still ring with the early morning chants of monks while prayer flags flap softly in the wind against a backdrop of majestic blue skies.
The cultural heart of Tibet houses the Potala Palace – a former winter residence of the Dalai Lama, a 13-storey majestic architectural masterpiece replete with more than 1,000 rooms. Enjoy flexible touring with a private guide and driver as you visit the city’s most compelling sights. Alternatively, you can take a drive to Rongbuk for a breathtaking view of the Mount Everest Base Camp.
