Life is an adventure, it's not a package tour!
Participatory, experiential small group travel, that allows you to see places from a new perspective! We take care of the logistics without leading you around or scheduling all your meals or activities, allowing you to experience a place independently.
The Coast-to-Coast hike!
May 7 to 15, 2023 £1,325
A hiking trip, but so much more than a hike. A chance to see England's most beautiful National Parks, experience its village, inn and pub life, and to cross a country from Sea to Sea, all at the same time!
May 27 to June 3, 2023 $1,450
Sailing the Aeolians islands off the Northern Coast of Sicily, often rated as the world's #1 sailing destination. All you want from the Mediterranean without the souvenir-shop-lined streets.
The Mythical Ionian Sea!
June 10 - 17, 2023 $1,450
Sailing the islands of the Ionian sea, considered to be the most beautiful Greek islands. These are the 'green' Greek islands of everyone from Odysseus to Onassis.
From Split to Dubrovnik!
September 2 - 11, 2023 $1,575
10 days sailing one way, allowing us to visit both World Heritage cities without having to rush over the many great islands in-between.
November 24-Dec. 3, 2023 $2,250
The lakes, the glaciers, the mountains, the wine. Hiking, biking and kayaking. This rate includes transportation within Chile, including a flight from Santiago to Patagonia.
A love for travel, and a career in the business, led to my obtaining captain's licenses in Greece and Croatia, and taking friends sailing around the world for more than 20 years.
To offer participatory, experiential travel off the beaten path of mass tourism for those who want a more immersive or active vacation. To not schedule every hour or where you eat, allowing you to experience a place more freely.
“Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.”

A 'slow travel' sentiment that is true anywhere:
"If you only have a week or so in Italy my advice is not to try to see too much. Rather settle into one region and savour the nuances and rhythms of life in your chosen corner." -- Andrew Smith, My Italy
