Family and friends

Vacation time is precious. It's not only good for you, it also strengthens family ties. The secret to a great family vacation? Ensuring there's plenty to keep all ages amused, whether you're traveling with teens, young explorers or a multi-generational group. From adrenaline-fueled sports and wildlife encounters to family-friendly luxury beach resorts and mountain retreats, our local knowledge and customized approach means your vacation will be perfectly crafted to suit you and your family.

Couples vacations

We know every couple is different, and that is why booking a customized vacation with Scott Dunn will ensure you make the most of your time traveling, whatever type of vacation you want. Whether you want that perfect beach vacation when you know families won’t be in resort, to an adventure taking you off-the-beaten track in style, we can craft something utterly unforgettable.

Bucket list vacations

Once the definitive scorecard of things you wanted to jump off or swim with before you die, the bucket list has expanded to embrace romance and adventure on an epic scale. Whether it's watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat, whirring above a bubbling Icelandic volcano in a helicopter, taking your family on a Galapagos expedition, or soaking up the golden age glamour of a luxury train ride through South Africa, there are no limits for the modern day explorer.

Wildlife & safaris

The call of the wild. It can show up as a nagging urge to go off grid, far from technology and the mayhem of modern day life. Or it may be the decision to finally turn that lifelong dream to go on safari into a reality; to see the Big 5 in the flesh, sit beneath vast star-laden skies, to rise with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the bush.

Cruise and rail

Hop on board a luxury train, cruise oceans or rivers in a luxury boat; this is the way to travel in style. The journey is an integral part of the adventure. From trips through Europe on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, to explorations of the Galapagos Islands by catamaran, or a cruise to remote coral reefs in Belize, we've handpicked the best of the best of cruise and rail just for you.

Ski

Scott Dunn has its heritage in skiing. We've been running our very own luxury ski villas in the Alps and North America since 1986, controlling every aspect of your experience and perfecting the art of superior service. Now you have your pick of our portfolio of sumptuous privately-staffed, family-friendly ski villas and apartments, which are perfect for multi-generational getaways and milestone celebrations. Whether you seek a classic Alpine experience, a customized ski safari or adrenaline-fuelled heliskiing adventure, let us whisk you away to one of the world's finest ski resorts for a vacation to remember.

Luxury honeymoons

Celebrating the start of your new life together isn't just any vacation, it's the vacation. It should be a hazy romantic dream of sun-kissed skin and afternoon cocktails. But it should also reflect both of your personalities, even if they're quite different. One of you may long to escape to a beach hut on stilts for some serious pampering while the other winces at Champagne and roses clichés and dreams of a multi-destination cultural odyssey through Peru and Brazil. There are no hard and fast rules to planning your honeymoon and plenty of ways to pepper in a little adventure without skimping on romance.

Learning Vacations

Are you itching to discover cultures around the world? Do you fidget at the thought of spending all day on a sun lounger? Then our handpicked collection of educational experiences could be just the solution. Don’t worry, you won’t be taken back to your school days and stuck indoors – with Scott Dunn, the world becomes your classroom. These immersive experiences will have you meeting locals, learning from experts and engaging in authentic customs.

Special Occasions

Big birthdays, anniversaries, graduations: milestone events give you the perfect excuse to whisk kith and kin away to an exotic location for a celebration on steroids. How about a family reunion at a private house and observatory in a South Africa wildlife reserve? Snorkelling with turtles off the Galapagos Islands before a gourmet birthday dinner on your private yacht? Memories are out there for the making.

Our favorite foodie vacations

We've pulled together a collection of delicious adventures that really cut the mustard. Whether you're a foodie or not, we think that a key part of any vacation is what you eat. From a long, lazy breakfast in a Tuscan garden, indulging in fresh croissants and homemade jellies and fruit juice fresh from the orchard, to visiting a bustling fish market in Tokyo to select your sushi straight off the boats, the culinary experiences should be a highlight.
