A private sailing experience through these crystal clear waters takes you to hidden beaches and coves, perfect for a romance under the Mediterranean sun!
Scotland – The land of castles
Scotland is undeniably intriguing due to a plethora of ancient castles, rolling landscapes, and blaring bagpipes. One can see the untamed Highlands and travel through rugged hillsides encumbered with lochs and Gaelic-speaking villages.
Stay in a castle, with period furnishings and terrific tales of glory, history, and experience history and culture first-hand. There is something for everyone – from idyllic and peaceful abbeys to a place of turrets and towers and mountain castles. If it is luxury you are looking for, you’ll find it in Scotland, the country that is in love with its rich culture and heritage.
Scotland is home to numerous whisky distilleries, with plenty of opportunities to sample the variety of whiskies on offer from the many distilleries. Few distilleries even let you see the whole whisky making process. Sampling a nip in the splendour of the Ships Room at Glenlivet and seeing the famous underground spring water from Josie’s Well would be hard to surpass.
Iceland – The land of fire and ice
With its vast, stunning and unspoilt landscapes, Iceland is a sight to behold! With some unique and beautiful geological features like volcanoes, geysers, and geothermal baths, and for those lucky enough to witness – the magical Northern Lights!
A must visit on your itinerary should be the Thrihnukagigur volcano, which is now dormant – it last erupted over 4,000 years ago. There are no indications of it erupting again in the near future, so exploring the magma chamber from the inside is as safe as exploring a museum. But unlike a museum with just parts or relics of a volcano closed in a casket, a tour of the volcano will take you to the actual insides of a volcano. Something you shouldn’t miss and do at least once in a lifetime!
You can also go whale watching in Iceland. Go whale and dolphin spotting this summer! It is truly a magnificent sight to see these colossal animals in their natural habitat.
Australia – the land down under
In Australia luxury and adventure go hand-in-hand.
Be it swimming with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef while you or deep dive under the ocean to see corals, Australia gives you the true taste of adventure.
With the Mount Gower Trek, experience the greener side of Australia. Enjoy the views of Balls Pyramid and Mt Lidgbird and discover the mist forest on the summit of Mt Gower wit flora that’s seen nowhere else on the planet, while learning about the natural history of this World Heritage-listed island.
