Wonderluxe ideas for adventure travel.
Eternal memories. That’s the aim of adventure travel: incredible trips, places and people that you’ll never forget.
The once-in-a-lifetime holidays that we can create range from Indian tiger safaris and trips on the Trans-Siberian railway to Croatian island stays, Costa Rican jungle jaunts and hunts for the Northern Lights.
To tap into our luxury adventure travel expertise, and to receive tailored suggestions, just give us a call. Here are a few initial ideas – but we’ve got many more:
Wake up to views of Uluru
Deep, deep in the dunes of Australia’s scorched-red Outback, the 16 tented pavilions at Longitude 131º gaze straight at Uluru. Lie on a daybed, wallow in your deck’s plunge pool or take a scenic flight over the sacred landmark.
Hunt the Northern Lights
In winter, luminous swirls colour Iceland, Finland and Sweden’s night skies. Be it blue, purple, red or green, the Aurora Borealis is always fickle – but our expert guides and remote luxury hotels will drastically improve your odds of a sighting.
Ride the Venice Simplon Orient Express
Relive the Roaring Twenties during a trip across Europe on this iconic Art Deco train. You’ll finish beside Venice’s canals having admired the Alps, dined like royalty, sipped Champagne and slept in an opulent Grand Suite.
Travel on the
All aboard! In crossing Russia over eight days, the Trans-Siberian serves up a geographical fantasia – from Siberian forest to snowy peaks and blue-green Lake Baikal. We’ll get you the very best cabin and take care of the finer details.
An incredible USA road trip
How about driving down Highway 1 from San Francisco in an open top? Leaf-peeping across autumnal New England? Pairing Las Vegas with the Grand Canyon? Or delving into the Deep South’s bayous, barbecue and blues scenes?
Leopards and locomotives
in Sri Lanka
We love sunny Sri Lanka for so many reasons. Its ultra-friendly people. Its leopard and elephant safaris. Its romantic train journeys, beaches, Buddhist temples and tea hills. And its blissful boutique hotels amid spice-scented cities.
Stay at remarkable
Despite being ringed by rainforest, Ecuador’s eco-friendliest lodge has all-glass walls and Philippe Starck fittings. You can gasp at bizarre birds, bathe below waterfalls, ride the epic cable car and be soothed by ancient spa rituals.
Meet the locals in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has volcanoes to hike, seas to surf and quality coffee to drink. Above all, though, its wildlife wowed us – everything from whale-watching to jungles filled with sleepy sloths, monkeys and (trust us) astonishing frogs.
Tiger spotting in India
As numbers thankfully rise, so are your odds of spotting tigers amid India’s forested parks. After a safari – staying in luxurious tented camps, and undertaking daily game drives with expert guides – it’s easy to travel on to the Taj Mahal.
Increase your Vitality on Croatia’s islands
Prefer an active break? Set on a leafy Croatian island, Vitality Hotel Punta accompanies its Blue Flag beach with watersports, tennis courts, hiking, an outdoor climbing wall and a chance to spot local dolphins.
The Blue Train
The two-night journey on the Blue Train between Pretoria and Cape Town has been described as ‘the window to the soul of South Africa’. One of the world’s most luxurious trains, it travels through diverse and spectacular scenery including Kimberley, home to the country’s first discovered diamond and Kruger National Park, home to the Big 5.
South East Asia
Eastern & Oriental Express
A sublime reminder of when train travel was all about standards and elegance, the Eastern and Oriental Express is all of your Agatha Christie fantasies come true. Tailor-make your journey with The Chronicles: four journeys that explore deep into Asia and touch upon such magical places as Thailand’s remote Isan plains, Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands, mysterious Laos, the colonial splendour of Kuala Lumpur, and the evocative Bridge over the River Kwai.
Amidst a land of stupendous beauty, The Rocky Mountaineer allows you to absorb the full experience of Canada’s breathtaking scenery, glass in hand. For this train is big on creature comforts with gourmet dining, a highly personal service and the very best of modern sophistication.
