WILDLIFE HOLIDAYS

Close wildlife encounters

It’s been almost 30 years since we took our first travellers to the Galapagos Islands so we like to think we know a thing or two about wildlife holidays.

These days we’re lucky enough to cover the entire spectrum of Latin America’s varied wildlife destinations. Whether you want to discover the colourful tropical birds in Costa Rica, search for jaguars in the Pantanal, swim with sea lions in the Galapagos or dance with emperor penguins on the Antarctic, with our resources on the ground we can arrange it.

We know that one of the elements that really make a trip is the guides. A bad guide can ruin a trip. That’s why we use local people (sometimes complimented by expert tour leaders), usually born in the area and knowing those hidden wildlife spots that will make your journey spectacular.

We work closely with our clients to find out what they are looking for and design a trip which encompasses everything they ask for and usually more.

Antarctic Circle Voyage

Antarctic Circle Voyage

An extended 14-day voyage, charting a course directly south to the Antarctic Circle at 66°33°S. The further south you go the more sea ice you will find. This is an expedition that very few vessels can take. The Akademik Ioffe is a modern, ice-strengthened vessel.

A classic journey starting in the UNESCO world heritage city of Quito and driving south through the Avenue of Volcanoes visiting Quilotoa crater lake, bartering at Pujili market, riding the Devil’s Nose Train, hiking Cotopaxi, bathing in hot springs in Banos and wandering through old Cuenca. The following week will be spent exploring the rich wildlife of the Galapagos Islands from the tall-mast sailing ship, the Mary Anne.
