Galapagos holiday cruise options

This is a selection of our favourite Galapagos vessels. We prefer smaller-sized Galapagos boats (16-20 passengers), with an emphasis on first rate naturalist guides, great itineraries, and sustainably run operations. All of our vessels allow you to enjoy walking, swimming, and snorkelling to get close to the varied wildlife (sea kayaking is often possible also).

Family holidays in Costa Rica

Fun activities, high quality small hotels, varied landscapes, amazing wildlife and a beautiful beach at the end. Not a bad family adventure right? Best of all, we firmly believe that a family holiday should be as fun and engaging for the adults as it is for the children - no compromising nor trade offs. You'd struggle to come up with somewhere better than Costa Rica to do just that. This can make the country rather busy, so it pays to take a more thoughtful approach to planning your holiday here. We've balanced the best bases for activities with some peace and quiet away from the crowds. Start with a stroll through a Caribbean village and boat rides along wildlife-rich water channels and ...

Porto, Douro and Lisbon holiday, Portugal

There are many definitions of what makes a great road trip. One which has you sipping wine from a family-run vineyard as the sun sets on the Douro valley, dining on the terrace of a palace nestled in lush forest and hiking along old fishermen trails past golden isolated beaches probably fits the bill. Throw in guided walks in the hidden corners of Porto and Lisbon, some of the best Roman ruins on the Iberian Peninsula and silent cork oak fields and you have something pretty special. At least we think so. If you're inclined to agree, you'll find more details of the trip below and many, many more details if you get in touch to discuss a personalised itinerary. Read more >

Pantanal, Southern Amazon & Costa Verde beaches holiday

Amazon, Pantanal, Rio and Paraty. This isn't the first holiday to link them together. So why this one? Why us? Well firstly, you're going to a part of the Brazilian Amazon where relatively few people visit; instead of landing in Manaus - a city of 2 million people, you're landing in a municipality of 50,000. The impact that makes on the environment and the richness and diveristy of the birdlife is huge. We want you to have the very best rainforest experience possible, which is why we invested in finding new and thoughtful ways for you to engage in Brazil's great ecosystems.
