Travel Tips

Embark on a thrilling outdoor adventure.


From the Arctic Circle to the White Continent, polar expeditions are one of the hottest tickets around. On a tour of northern Norway, zoom through rugged wilderness on a snowmobile, then set off in search of the northern lights. At the opposite end of the world, touch down on the Antarctic ice sheet in a private jet before climbing a peak in the heart of the continent. Or, hop between glaciers, waterfalls, and black-sand beaches in otherworldly Iceland.


Connect with Africa’s wilderness and wildlife.


When it comes to connecting with nature and its creatures, Africa offers limitless options. A few highlights: Canoe quietly through Zambezi River floodplains in search of hippos in Zambia, climb the world’s tallest sand dunes during sunset in the Namib Desert, or drift silently through the Okavango Delta in a hot-air balloon, spotting herds of elephants below.


Go big in the U.S.


Whether you crave a go-all-night city break; a chilled out, beachfront weekend away; or a windows-down drive along winding, scenic roads, myriad opportunities await from NYC to L.A. Explore Boston’s bustling harbor, celebrated seafood restaurants, and world-class museums. Find your Zen on Malibu’s Carbon Beach. Plan a weekend fit for a princess. Or drop the top and make the most of Monument Valley and the desert Southwest.


Have it all on the high seas.


See and do as much – or little – as you like from some of the most luxurious ships at sea: Drop anchor in the Caribbean to snorkel and swim among the region’s most colorful coral reefs; charter a yacht to hop amidst Scandinavia’s smart capital cities; cruise Europe’s most storied rivers; or, enjoy laid-back, no-agenda sea days with spa treatments, celebrity chef-planned meals, and a good book, and brilliant blue horizons.


Pursue your passion in Europe.


The perennial favorite offers something to see, taste, and learn for every kind of traveler. Roll through the English countryside aboard a vintage train? Check. Cooking classes in Croatia or at artist workshop in Italy? Check and check again. From a wine-bar tour of Paris to arts-filled days in Madrid, there’s never a bad time for your next Continental sojourn.


Soak in scenery, history, and culture in Latin America.


Latin America beckons with  mist-shrouded mountains, lush cloud forests, sugar-soft beaches, and vibrant cities. Peru is home to plenty of treasures, from the cultural Cusco to the iconic Machu Picchu. In Argentina, wine lovers can sip Malbecs in Mendoza and explore Buenos Aires’ architectural heritage with a private guide.
