Top 10 Natural Wonders

Spend the day as a castaway

Soneva Fushi, Maldives

Leave reality behind for a day in the remote beauty of the Maldives. During a stay at select resorts, you’ll have the chance to venture to a secluded desert island for a bespoke castaway experience. Absorb the feeling of utter seclusion and nature’s contrasts of azure blue, golden sands and clear blue skies in this gorgeous setting. Take a dip in the glistening waters and bask in the sunshine before indulging in a gourmet picnic lunch on the shoreline.

Cross the Polar Circle

Antarctica

Journeying past the ends of the earth, count yourself among the adventurous few who dare to venture across the Polar Circle, and in ultimate luxury. Among countless adventures on this Antarctic expedition, reaching the only accessible point to see the mighty emperor penguins is a highlight. Seeing the vast colonies made up of thousands of birds is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on even the most seasoned explorer.

Trek on the Perito Moreno Glacier

Patagonia, Argentina

Traverse the vast jutting spikes of the icy Magellanic Forest up to the surface of Perito Moreno glacier with an expert guide for a truly breathtaking experience in the great outdoors. Weave through the huge frozen monoliths and dark enchanting caves, and trek up to the deep blue lagoons which dot the surface of this spellbinding landscape.

Explore the land of fire and ice

Iceland

A land of ice and fire, Iceland is home to rugged volcanoes, massive glaciers, mighty geysers and thermal lagoons. From the midnight sun to the Aurora Borealis, Iceland is a land of contrast and adventure. A true highlight involves journeying beneath Langjökull glacier on a guided excursion, exploring the bright blue ice caves beneath the mass of ice.

Summer in the Arctic

West Greenland and Canada

See the Arctic burst into life during this enchanting season, as polar bears gather atop tundras and beluga whales make their way toward shore, a migration of thousands of birds in tow. As the ice melts, your luxury vessel will gain access to the magnificent scenery and barren landscape of the Northwest Passage. This is arguably nature at its most breathtaking.

Fly over the impressive Great Blue Hole

Belize

Soar above Belize’s famed Great Blue Hole on a scenic flight. Take in the sheer vastness of this huge marine sinkhole, glimmering with dozens of shades of brilliant blue. By flying, you get a full perspective on the sheer size and curious placement of this 120-meter-deep natural wonder. For adventure lovers seeking something extra, explore the depths on a snorkelling excursion.

Feel the spray of Iguassu Falls

Brazil

Brazil is home to several incredible natural wonders and iconic landmarks. Embark on an epic journey to the wildest reaches of Brazil to see some of its top sites, including the impressive Iguassu Falls. Here, thundering waterfalls and a watery mist emerge from lush tropical rainforest. Explore the falls on boat trips and amble along wooden walkways to get up close to the mighty water. During your stay in Iguassu, you’ll enjoy exclusive early access, allowing you to admire the falls as the sun rises, before the crowds arrive.

See the Northern Lights from Norway's fjords

Lyngen Fjord, Norway

Venture across Norway’s Arctic Circle for a stay at Lyngen Lodge – a spot where nature and luxury harmoniously combine. Effortlessly blending into its surroundings and framed by dramatic snowy peaks and a sparkling lake, Lyngen Lodge is the perfect spot to glimpse the Northern Lights. Visit from December to March, to be wowed by the magic of the lights dancing in the sky above Norway’s fjords and mesmerising icy landscapes.

Explore the Highlands and Islands of Scotland

Scotland

Embark on a transcendent journey through Scotland's Highlands and Islands, where rugged landscapes meet lavish indulgence. Traverse mist-kissed mountains, heather-clad peaks, ancient castles, and serene lochs in unparalleled luxury.

Walk through the Avenue of the Baobabs

Madagascar

Experience these towering ancient baobabs near Madagascar's west coast.
