Vacation Ideas Based on Who Is Traveling
From special occasions like honeymoons to vacations for the whole family, explore vacation ideas based on who you’re traveling with.
Vacation time is precious. Especially since it’s the one time you get to truly bond as a family and do what you enjoy best, together. Traveling through the eyes of a child can be magical, giving you the chance to share extraordinary experiences together that you’ll talk about for years to come. From adrenaline-fueled sports and wildlife encounters to family-friendly luxury beach resorts and mountain retreats, our unparalleled local knowledge and customized approach means your vacation will be perfectly crafted to suit you and your family.
Planning your next great escape? Celebrating a life milestone? Perhaps you just want to treat yourself. Whatever your reason to travel, our travel experts know our destinations and experiences intimately and can offer impartial advice to ensure peace of mind when you travel and offer the most welcoming of vacations, with your personal needs in mind. We’ve teamed up with OutThere magazine to make some suggestions.
Perhaps the kids have finally flown the nest and it’s time to take Dad on a luxury train trip through the Scottish Highlands (single malt in hand, of course)? Or maybe you dream of sharing your love of wildlife with your grandchildren on an epic conservation safari in South Africa? Whether it's for a special occasion or fulfilling a lifelong ambition, more families than ever are mixing it up when it comes to travel, with young and old(er) striking out on incredible adventures that span the world.
Vacation Types Based on Interests
Have an idea of the kind of vacation experience you want? Here are some of our favorite wildlife, ski adventures, culinary vacations, and more.
When you think of Africa, no doubt a vivid picture springs to mind. Endless plains teeming with wildlife, vast landscapes with a never-ending horizon, white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, and romantic nights under star-studded skies? Our African safari experts know this incredible continent inside out which makes them the perfect people to help you plan an unforgettable trip.
Imagine yourself staying in a barefoot hideaway on a powder-white tropical beach, island hopping in Croatia. Or, picture yourself enjoying your morning latte with a view across azure Caribbean waters that look like they’ve been photoshopped. If you’re dreaming of vacations on the beach, just let us know your wishlist and we’ll create the perfect trip for you.
Food and drink have the power to reveal the soul of a place. The plum and cedar notes of a fine South African red; the fluffiest Bengali-style potatoes; a simple picnic of yielding Saint-Nectaire with crunchy bread and cornichons; the zing of fresh chilies on the tongue; the merry din of a bustling Thai market. A culinary vacation is a sensual safari that evokes memories, binds people together and teases out your adventurous side.
If you're anything like us, getting soaked to the skin on a white water rafting trip down the Zambezi or thundering across the Argentine Pampas on horseback will be your idea of heaven. How about running the Safaricom Marathon alongside rhino and giraffe through one of the world's most beautiful wildlife havens, crewing your own yacht on an island hopping jaunt in the Agean, or exploring a glacial cave in Iceland? If that sounds like heart-thumping good fun, do we have some ideas for you...
For a Different Kind of Travel Experiences...
Ditch planes for a new kind of travel experience. Take to the seas on an intrepid cruise of the Galapagos, revel in the nostalgia of a railway journey, or embrace slow travel and road trip through some of your favorite countries.
Surrender to the cathartic rhythm of rail and the romance of slow travel; now the true definition of luxury in a world that doffs it cap to speed. Watch iconic landscapes like the Scottish Highlands or the Alps roll by before you pull into some of the world’s most famous cities.
It is hard to beat the romance of the open road. For both couples and families, a road trip offers the ultimate in flexibility and adventure. The heady sense of freedom and the luxury of your own space can make hitting the road one of the most relaxing ways to travel, enjoy the scenery and meet the locals. Here’s a selection of our favorite self-drives.
