More information about Inspirations

Inspirational Travel is all about what you make it.

Travel that can take your breath away, Travel that creates memories that last a lifetime.

Go, fly, roam, travel, voyage, explore, journey, discover, adventure.

So we have put together a few ideas with our Travel friends Intrepid that we hope you might find inspirational.

Polar Experience

A journey to the Arctic or Antarctic is unlike anything else on earth.

No matter whether you’re visiting the southern or northern extremes of our planet, there’s something about these white landscapes that captures the imaginations of even the most hardened travellers. Cast adrift to the extremes of the earth and discover great white landscapes full of icy inlets and frozen coves. Experience the rush of setting foot on some of the world’s most remote terrain, witness brilliant natural phenomena and come to terms with the sheer size and scale of our planet’s polar regions.


There’s a nice simplicity to cycling. You start at A and slowly ride your way to B, powered by nothing but your own legs…and maybe a Provencal orange cake and a couple of extra-strength café au lait. This is cycling to explore, which means it’s not the Tour de France. You don’t get prizes for coming in first, and the lycra bodysuits are definitely optional. These trips are for people who really want to see a place, not just travel it. Ride on.  Examples of cycling holiday destinations include Jordan, Cuba, Columbia, Tanzania and so much more.

With Adventure Cruising, it’s all about the destination.

After all, there’s no time to spend on shuffleboard or bad cabaret when you’re admiring breath-taking waterfalls or off wandering through little Croatian laneways with your local leader. On our Adventure Cruising ships, we travel in a small group of travellers (no more than 50), so when we haul anchor into smaller ports and islands, you’ll get to know the locals rather than outnumber them. Why not start with a coastal Adventure cruise in Vietnam?

South East Asia’s glittering waters and tropical landscapes are no secret, but this captivating corner of the world offers so much more than just beaches and jungle. Forest-clad mountains, traditional villages, bustling cities and spread out archipelagos contain an unbelievably diverse array of cultures, religions and mouth-watering food.


Witness some of the world’s most epic wildlife experiences: the migrations across the Serengeti, the gorillas of Rwanda and Uganda, or the penguins on Antarctica’s drifting floes. If you’ve got a bit of Attenborough going on, then why not explore.

Travel through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe and experience the Okavango Delta

Roam the famous Serengeti National Park, nearly 15,000 square kilometres of rolling savanna that shelters an astounding array of animals from miniature dik-dik antelopes to lions and the noble African elephant. Spot wildlife among the ethereal vistas from atop the Ngorongoro Crater.


Festivals are the smell of incense, the fizz of fireworks and the squelch of a fresh tomato. They arrive with the thunder of bespeckled dancers and wind down like a Munich beer hall hangover. They’re the lantern-lit, confetti-filled, mud-slinging reminder that life is there to be enjoyed to the max, and that there’s no such thing as too much fun in the name of pomp and ceremony.

Experience Delhi and the spectacular Diwali festival – China Highlights & Harbin Ice Festival, or perhaps Halloween in Transylvania
