Savour the flavours of the world

A honeymoon to remember
Taking a honeymoon to any of our destinations will leave you with lasting memories and plenty of stories to tell when you get back. Throw yourselves into the colourful chaos of Vietnam, journey from grazing elephants to palm-fringed beaches in Sri Lanka, treat yourself to a traditional massage in South India, or opt for an all-out adventure in the rainforests of Borneo. Rickshaw honeymoons have the right balance of adventure and relaxation, and of course, romance.
Walk on the wild side
Wherever you go, you’re sure to come across extraordinary wildlife, from turtles nesting on the beaches of Costa Rica to whales breaching in the waves off the coast of Patagonia. Sleep in rainforest lodges, wake to a dawn chorus of howler monkeys, meet orangutans in the jungle of Borneo or learn to care for aged elephants in Laos. Being so close to that much wildlife will really change your outlook on the planet.
Discover the underwater world
Colourful coral reefs, exotic tropical fish and even mysterious shipwrecks are all waiting to be explored. Take the plunge and scuba dive into the depths or just grab a snorkel and step out amongst the coral reefs. There are plenty of prime spots around the world to pop your fins on, here are just a few of our favourites.
Feel the freedom of a self-drive
Windows down, music up, seat belts fastened, map in hand… There’s nothing like the freedom of the open road. Explore wildlife-packed pockets of remote Patagonia, zig-zag between mighty volcanoes and crystal blue lakes in Chile, feel lost in time in Cuba or drift past the snow-capped peaks of Canada. Taking a road trip gives you the chance to set your own pace, slow down for pics and watch the scenery change around every corner.
Trek through showstopping scenery
Trek between soaring snow-tipped Himalayan peaks in Nepal, navigate mighty glaciers in Chile’s Patagonia wilderness, follow in the footsteps of the Incas on the way to Machu Picchu and wander through mist-swirled cloud forests in Costa Rica. Is it time to lace up those hiking boots? Treks can be challenging, but the rewards will outweigh the blisters!
Experience something completely different
See the world differently with one of our unique experiences. Hidden homestays, immersive experiences, cooking classes in a family home and secret islands are just a few of our favourites. If you’re looking for something a little unusual then take a look at our selection to get you started.
