True Travel Times
Condors & Puma in Patagonia
The majestic Andean Condor – the ultimate symbol of freedom – can often be seen soaring overhead or perched on rocky outcrops in Chilean Patagonia. From Patagonia’s private reserves, spend your days with a specialist guide in a truly ‘off-road’ vehicle, or discovering hidden trails on horseback. The best condor sightings are of gruesome yet fascinating feedings at ground level. But condors are not the only wildlife you’ll encounter, as this remote spot offers unparalleled access to guanaco llamas, foxes, flightless rheas and the elusive puma.
Polynesian Sailing Vessels
Join the crew of these beautiful Polynesian vessels and learn to sail by the stars, enjoying a private expedition hopping between seldom-visited islands in the South Pacific. This is possible through a rather special relationship with the Vanuatu chapter of the Okeanos Foundation – an organisation with a mission to empower Pacific Island people to implement traditionally based sustainable sea transportation. An authentic and rich astrological and anthropological experience.
Overnight in an Italian Rifugio
The Italian Dolomites are a mecca for skiers in the winter, adventurers in the spring and summer, and foodies all year round thanks to the number of Michelin stars in the area. Spending time in the Dolomites means sighting the old wooden rifugios (refuges) sitting high in the meadows of the mountains. AN overnight stay in one allows you to truly connect with the nature around you. Some are only accessible by foot, so carry a picnic supper on your back, light some candles and enjoy the warmth of a fire for the ultimate back-to-basics overnight in the mountains.
The Inaccessible Dusky Sound
Far to the south, over rainforests, mountains and deep glaciated valleys, lies the beautiful Dusky Sound in New Zealand’s Fiordland. Very few visit due to its isolated location; the lack of roads make it inaccessible to all but ocean-going vessels and helicopters. You’ll arrive by alpine helicopter, tracing the footsteps of Captain Cook to enjoy a day of fishing and wildlife discovery out on the waters and along the pristine shoreline of these serene fjords.
In the Footsteps of Explorers
Follow the footsteps of Norman Carr, a legendary conservationist and safari pioneer, with an authentic walking safari and sleep out experience in the South Luangwa National Park. This is Zambia’s premier wildlife destination and the home of walking safaris in Africa – so where better to return to the wild with an award-winning guiding team. After an afternoon walk in the bush, listening to lions calling in the distance, experience Zambia’s signature sleep-out under a canopy of a million twinkling stars, with the sounds of Africa around you.
Kayak with Orcas in the Arctic
With extraordinary settings come extraordinary experiences, and true to form, the far-removed Lyngen Alps in the Norwegian Arctic offer these in abundance. Ice-fish for king crab on the frozen sea, enjoy some of the best summit-to-sea skiing on the planet, and kayak in the company of orca and humpback whales. Tour the fjords by boat to find these great mammals, before sliding into your drysuit and kayak, then entering the water to get closer to these incredible creatures. Better still – with nightfall comes the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, reflected in the water.
