“Muriel has set up trips for my immediate family of five up to a group family trip of 18 all the way to chartering and organizing a boat trip of close to 40. The trips have been throughout Europe as well as the Galapagos. We recommend her and trust her completely.” BF, San Francisco, CA
A luxury boat for 16 close friends or your own 36 passenger floating hotel through the enchanted isles of the Galapagos – you choose. Swim with turtles, get brushed-up by a frolicking sea lion or fall in love with 300 dolphins as they surround your boat. Hike lush highland forests with giant tortoises, over volcanic lava fields and jagged beaches accompanied by blue-footed boobies, giant frigate birds and banks of marine iguanas. Itineraries tailored to suit your group which are flawlessly planned and expertly guided. Spend a few days before in historic Quito, the highland markets and haciendas in the Andes and explore the magic of the Amazon or the cloud forests on mainland Ecuador.
Cuzco to Machu Picchu along the Inca or Urubamba Trails to drink champagne at the Sun Gate of the Lost City. Manu and the Amazon basin along the Rio Madre de Dios with parrot licks and the elusive jaguar. Further south to the splendid colonial city of Arequipa and the Colca canyon with its resident condors; or west to breathtaking Lake Titicaca with its floating reed villages and centuries old culture and traditions.
The Belle Epoch architecture and avenues of Buenos Aires, the route north to the vineyards and canyons of Cafayate and Salta, a glass of Malbec and asado in Mendoza; or lonely, most beautiful Patagonia with it gauchos, glaciers, lakes and luxuriously isolated estancias. Bariloche and the lake district and then south to El Calafate and Perito Moreno Glacier, and across into Chile and the razor sharp peaks of Torres del Paine. Glorious hiking, accommodation and overwhelmingly beautiful terrain – you will not want to come home.
Jungle, ocean and Mayan culture await in Belize. From lodges in the interior with endless hiking trails and Mayan temple sites to laid back coastal lodges, Belize is the perfect adventure getaway. Canoe down the beautiful Macal River and stop for lunch in a Mestizo village or snorkel the Hol Chan reserve and go diving in the famous Blue Hole. Night walks with naturalist guides, medicine trails with a shaman or horseback riding in the Mayan Mountains are all possible.
Kayak in the lagoons of Tortuguero National Park or visit the Arenal Volcano, with its almost perfect cone, soaring 1,633 meters above sea level and has a crater 140 meters deep. On a clear night, you may see bursts of fire and red-hot rocks shoot hundreds of feet into the sky. During a clear day, you see smoke and hear the volcano’s roar. Venture to the coast of Guanacaste or gorgeous Manuel Antonio National Park in the south. Learn to surf, zipline, go deep sea fishing or simply relax in ocean-side hotels and lodges. Hike jungle trails with howler monkeys and beautiful waterfalls and visit small communities – the options are endless.
