Before lockdown, the idea of isolation — of searching for wide-open wilderness, far from civilization — was something we longed for. To find isolation, and to seek the remote, was to take a break from the crowded rush of everyday life. Once, isolation was about recharging. It was about living well and taking stock.
And that’s exactly why we’re claiming isolation back.
We’ve chosen these experiences, destinations and adventures to bring you closer to the great outdoors, all the while guaranteeing social distance by design. Curated by our Travel Experts down to the smallest detail. This is your ticket to our wide and wonderful world.
Plunging fjords, icy seas & monumental mountains
There are 113,000 sq kilometers of land in the north of Norway. It’s vast. But with this trip, we’re narrowing the focus – while keeping every beat and rhythm of the drama. You’ll have the best guides, the best lodges, and the ultimate experiences. Here, in the faraway reaches of the north, you’ll find not only seclusion, but an overwhelming sense of calm. You’ll also stay at majestic Manshausen, one of the most breathtaking ‘hotels’ in the world.
March – December, 7 – 10 nights
Ancient landscapes, exhilarating adventures & world-class cuisine
An island of volcanic ash, bubbling lava, and gigantic glaciers. This is the home of the imperious Gullfoss Falls, the orange-black geysers of Myvatn and the glacier of immense Langjökull. As you’ll experience on this unparalleled adventure, many of its parks, mountain ranges and landscapes are untouched and unpopulated, making it a natural choice for those seeking deep seclusion, untamed wilderness and ancient adventure. This itinerary has them in spades.
All year round (but November – March for Northern Lights), 5 – 7 nights
On December 14th 2020, Argentina Patagonia experienced one of the most spectacular natural events in the world – a total solar eclipse – and we had front-row seats. Our ambition here was to guide travelers to what experts call the “G eclipse point” – the perfect place from which to watch the eclipse – in the rugged, otherworldly landscapes of Piedra del Aguila – or the “Stone of the Eagle”. And we pulled it off perfectly.
Although the eclipse is over, our Blink camp service is far from it. On the isolated banks of the Collon Cura river, we’ll pitch you up with a luxurious dome tent conjured out of the air itself. Private chefs, traditional asado barbeques, horse-riding and stargazing. It’s a place to come together, to tell stories, and to dream.
Nov – April, 10 – 14 days
Ancient lochs, ethereal islands & plenty of whisky
Charming isles, rolling hills and ancient skies. Scotland is drama, history and myth. Where lochs and gothic castles are fringed by granite-dark mountains and cozy game cottages. And that’s exactly why, with this trip, we’re taking a leap beyond the cities of the south, journeying into the blustery, wild and rugged Hebrides and the tumbling Highlands beyond. Across these ten ethereal days and space-like nights, you’ll be immersed into the folklore, trails, history and wildlife of this faraway and beautiful corner of the world. From Skye to the shores of Loch Lomond.
May – October, 7 – 10 days
Ancient temples, desert islands & mayan spas
Mysterious vine-clad Mayan temples. The balmy beaches of Isla Holbox. Kicking back with the famous mud-wraps of Chable Spa. Here, on the sensual spur of the Yucatan Peninsula, we’ll bring all these elements into one enthralling package; a balmy fortnight where you’ll encounter Mexico both known and unknown – and far away from the bustling crowds. Sunrise yoga. A Mexican cooking class. Swim in a saltwater lagoon of 2,000 flamingos.
November – April, 5 – 14 nights
Tumbling towns, ancient seas & incredible meals
Across these seven or fourteen days (depending on how much time you’d like to spend), we’ll keep your eyes on the fundamentals. The sea. Crumbling, white-washed cliffs. Ethereal landscapes, coves and beaches. This is Greece as it is known by artists and writers; energizingly secluded, exceptionally well fed, and sensually bewitching. These things are yours: a private yacht, the secretive Byzantine coves of Paros, and the isolated quietude of Folegandros; a tiny, gem-like island that once served as a place of political exile. Yes, the Greek islands can indeed get busy – but not these hidden places.
May – October, 7 – 14 days
From romantic seclusion to surf junkie paradise, our team have spent years testing, trialing and comparing the many hotels and experiences within this incomparable territory. Between barefoot Soneva Fushi and elegant Baros, we know our way – and we’ll take the lead in curating the islands (and hotels) best suited to your tastes, desires and needs. This is a personalised atoll-hopping adventure, featuring coral dives, vibrant marine life, sea turtle conservation and sumptuous overwater villas.
December – April , 8 nights
Uninhabited islands, burly volcanoes & a beach for every day
Antigua – exotic, volcanic and eclectic – has long been one of our favorite Caribbean haunts. But this trip is so much more than (arguably gorgeous) beaches, palm trees and lapping waters. Antigua, across its volcanic peaks, lush jungle, and secret coves, is a diverse and thrilling ecosystem of islands and islets, which we’ll help you explore with every power at our disposal: from helicopter journeys and private boats to coral dives and stingray snorkeling.
November – June | 9 nights
Mountain roads, rugged islands & cozy retreats
Canada’s sixth province, British Columbia, is a land of vast wilderness, rocky coves, ancient forest and towering mountains. This is about putting you in touch with cozy retreats, heart-stopping scenery and thrilling adventures, all perched at the very edge of the mighty Pacific. That’s why, on this jaw-dropping journey, we’ll take you into its densest and most remote fringes. And with so much to see and do, we’ve curated up to ten days of thrilling journeys, experiences and expeditions, helping you to firmly reconnect with the natural world.
March – October, 5 – 12 days
Maasai culture, world-class safari & the Indian ocean
Kenya feels like the very heart of Eastern Africa. Its savannah marked by the wizened branches of acacia. Of snow-slaked mountains that tumble into vast deserts before arriving at the exotic coast of the Indian Ocean. Most travelers come here to witness the country’s incredible wildlife, kept secure by programs of conservation and preservation. But with this trip, we’ve balanced those long, adventurous days with a final rest-stop on the tranquil and secluded coast, where dhows and sail ships ply the sun-dark horizon. This is the ultimate ‘best of both.’
July-October, 7-10 nights
The Raja Ampat islands, off the glimmering coast of the Bird’s Head Peninsula, vary dramatically in size. Where some are hulking and stately, others rise out of the tranquil waters like dark-green mushrooms from a forest floor. On your journey to this ethereal place, we’ll introduce you to its myths, its magic, and its living cultures. An immersive adventure into the heart of the world’s last great paradise.
All year round (however, Raja Ampat is better between November – April, whereas the Komodo Islands are better suited to the summer months), 7 – 10 nights
Sprawling beaches, deep seclusion & vibrant jungle
Nosy Ankao is the largest island within an archipelago to the east of the mainland of Madagascar. Even today its sandflats and forests remain largely untouched, unknown and unexplored. This is what makes it so special, this self-contained universe of island seclusion, exotic creatures, and endless sky. But amid all that sumptuous distance, the island is also home to a luxurious outpost of Time + Tide Miavana – the only property on this remote and celestial island. Accessible only by private helicopter (arranged by yours truly), this small slice of paradise offers deep wilderness and total isolation.
April-December, 7 – 10 nights
