With the school holidays approaching, we once again drag out those suitcases and blow off the dust before packing the essentials… swimsuit, shorts, flip flops and don’t forget the sun screen! Whilst the lure of the sun, sea and sand still entice the best of us, do you not occasionally long for a new adventure, something different, something exciting, something new?

New cultures, new flavours, new language… there is a whole world out there just waiting to be discovered, waiting to be explored, so stop dreaming and take the plunge, break the mould and live for the moment… you can always go to the beach next year!

Go on Safari

Fabulous but less frequented than other African safari destinations, Zambia offers comfortable living in remote bush camps with outstanding opportunities to experience some of the best wildlife within its famed national parks. This is pure Africa, an untamed land made for safaris on foot, by boat and of course from a vehicle, all led by passionate guides with bountiful wildlife, leopard, lion, elephants, wild dogs and huge herds of buffalo to name a few. Our Classic Bush-Camps is the perfect introduction for first time safari going and a popular choice for returning safari enthusiasts.

So, Slovenia?

Now be honest, Slovenia has probably never featured on your summer holiday destination list, but why not? This small and welcoming country is not only easily accessible but a delight to experience. It’s clean and green, packs stunning Alpine peaks, rolling vineyards and ancient forests into its borders and plays host to incredible nature and wildlife. Stay in boutique hotels or cosy farmhouses, dine on traditional home-cooked Slovenian fare and mingle with the friendly and welcoming locals, who are lucky enough to call this country home. Whether you are looking to spend your days hiking, biking and rafting on an adventure packed week away with the kids or discover the countries natural history at a more leisurely pace we can certainly guide you in the right direction.

Love Lapland

Lapland conjures images of snow laden landscapes, swirling northern lights and sometimes even Santa! Yes, it’s true, he does live here, but there is more to this Arctic region that just sensationalised Santa tourism. Lapland is a truly wonderful place, untouched in parts and a pleasure to experience. The Arctic wilderness can however, be both beautiful and challenging so we have come up with a Lapland trip with difference. Whether you are looking for a new personal challenge, planning a future expedition of your own, or simply love the great outdoors, Arctic Wilderness Skills is the trip for you, providing a week-long outdoor learning holiday that covers all the essentials. From expedition planning to wilderness first aid, learn the skills and knowledge required to truly understand and fully appreciate this incredible environment and still have fun with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and exhilarating snowmobile and husky safaris. What are you waiting for… throw out that sunscreen and pack your long-johns!

Oh Canada

Canada is often seen as long-haul destination that warrants more than your average 2-week holiday. Whilst I wouldn’t argue with spending longer in such a wonderful country, sadly we can’t all afford to do so. Whether it’s your budget or simply time that restricts you, we may just have the perfect solution! Our Seaplane Safari in Southwest British Columbia not only offers the chance to see more of BC in a short time, 9-days in fact, but it also allows you to travel in style at an affordable price! What more could you ask for? From vibrant Vancouver to the waterfront city of Victoria, you will visit coastal Tofino and the alpine resort of Whistler in between, transferring between locations by seaplane and spending more time on the ground enjoying the plentiful pursuits available.

Colourful Costa Rica

Not only an incredibly friendly nation, Costa Rica is also a country of outstanding natural beauty and an ecological treasure-trove, with diverse rainforests, outstanding National Parks and impressive volcanoes providing habitats an incredible array of wildlife and to some of the most exotic flora and fauna imaginable. No wonder it is a perennial favourite for wildlife holidays and for nature lovers there is no better destination as Costa Rica really does offer something for everyone. It is also very child friendly for family touring holidays and also caters for teenage adrenaline junkie adventures. Spend your days walking through ancient rainforest trails, brave the heady heights of a canopy zipline, soak in hot springs and who doesn’t want to drink delicious coffee in the morning! Finally, if the lure of the beach is all too much to resist, you can round off your travels on the white sand beaches of the stunning Caribbean or Pacific Coast.
