Be it a missed gap year opportunity, retirement, gardening leave or just a long holiday, we have hundreds of ideas to fill your time. Perhaps focus on just one country like Australia and really get under the skin of the destination, or combine a number of different places to create a more diverse trip. Let us take care of the logistics and assign some exceptional guides to keep you company along the way.
Spend up to a month exploring Morocco’s dramatic scenery where we have a number of trusted drivers to chauffeur you around the country or indulge in a private helicopter/plane to reduce the travelling times. Mix it up with authentic riads, luxury camps, exclusive villas, slick hotels and homestays.
The vast size of Australia means it is a year round destination as either the north or the south is always experiencing sunshine. It is a land of contrasts with extraordinary winelands, barren deserts, the Great Barrier reef, cosmopolitan cities and idyllic beaches.
For a long trip we recommend visiting Iceland in the summer months. Although you won’t see the Northern lights, the island’s other assets are at their best, with erupting volcanoes, melting glaciers, deep fjords, black sand beaches and steaming lava fields.
Combining the neighbouring countries of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar could easily fill a couple of months and with our help they can be linked by air, by land or by waterways. Alternatively take a road trip through Java, island hop to Sumba or explore the islands of the Japanese archipelago.
Sri Lanka and India can be explored in their entirety though you might wish to tag on a bit of relaxation in the Maldives at the start or end of the itinerary for some serious indulgence. Bhutan and Nepal complement each other well with stunning scenery and remote trekking opportunities.
Jordan, Oman and UAE are easy to link by road or by plane allowing you to experience distinct landscapes from desert to beach, mountains to cities and ancient UNESCO sites. The cities of Muscat, Dubai or Abu Dhabi also work well as a stop-over en route to the Indian Subcontinent, Far East or Australasia.
