WSJ BT

The 2021 gift guide

For something that won’t fit in a stocking

Over the last year, we’ve been working closely with WSJ+ to bring you—their members—an exclusive selection of some of our most extraordinary trips and expeditions. Together, we’ve helped you to see the world after months of lockdown and inertia. The world began to open its doors, and we helped you walk into the sunlight beyond.

And now, this festive season, we’d like to celebrate this collaboration; by looking back at the nine exhilarating trips we’ve created together, all of which you can browse (and book) below.

And as a final thank you, we’d like to offer you something special. With each trip you take or every trip you gift, Black Tomato will gift you—in turn—a complimentary experience, from a Peruvian earth-blessing ceremony to a wine-tasting tour through New Mexico.
