  • Rural Images of Kerala

    PRIVATE JOURNEY – 15 DAYS – From £2,720
    This tropical state is, for many, the essence of south India. A land of swaying palms and rustic wooden villages, famous trading cities and the idyllic backwaters, this is a relaxed itinerary exploring the rural heart of Kerala. Begin your journey in two homestays, the first at Olavipe, a century old Keralan mansion on the banks of the backwaters, and the second charming Philipkutty's Farm. From here continue to the 1920s plantation bungalow of Serenity, relax by the sea, then board your own private houseboat before ending in the historic and colourful spice-market town of Kochi.

  • Highlights of Chile and Argentina

    PRIVATE JOURNEY – 21 DAYS – Price on Request
    Chile and Argentina offer the traveller not only some of the world’s finest natural landscapes but also two of the continent’s most vibrant cities. This itinerary begins in Buenos Aires before flying to its counter–part in Chile. From here fly north to the surreal eroded landscapes of the Atacama Desert before heading south to Patagonia and Torres Del Paine National Park. With an expert guide explore the park then join the Stella Australis cruise for a memorable journey through the Strait of Magellan. End with two nights in the Glaciers National Park close to the incredible Perito Moreno glacier.
