Queensland, Australia

How does flying into tropical Cairns, discovering Cape Tribulation and snorkelling the largest aquarium on the planet sound? Enter our Tropical North Queensland Journey. On this tailor-made holiday, you’ll explore the kaleidoscopic underwater world, soar above the rainforest on a skyrail to Kuranda, sample delicious tipples in the Atherton Tablelands, and enjoy lazy days on the beach in Port Douglas.

California, USA

An epic US road trip features on many a traveller’s bucket list – and for good reason. Experience the majesty of Yosemite National Park, tour Alcatraz, try your luck in Las Vegas and drift above the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon in a helicopter. Finish your trip with a spot of shopping in Beverly Hills, before relaxing with a cocktail on the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica. Our California & Canyons itinerary simply has it all.

New Zealand

The Lord of the Rings wasn’t filmed here for nothing. With undulating, emerald landscapes and some of the most diverse scenery you’ll ever clap eyes on; New Zealand is one of those destinations which must be seen to be appreciated. And you can do just that on our Best of Both Islands Journey – part of our tailor-made holidays collection. Explore the beautiful Bay of Islands, cruise Milford Sound, look for humpbacks on a whale watching tour and climb aboard one of the world’s most famous train journeys between Christchurch and Greymouth: the TranzAlpine.

British Columbia and Alberta, Canada

What better way to see the wild beauty of Western Canada than by gazing out at the ever-changing landscapes from the comfort of a luxury cabin? Our Rocky Mountaineer Journey allows you to do just this, while tucking into prime Alberta beef or wild salmon, paired with award-winning Okanagan wine. Traversing Vancouver, Banff and Jasper on its signature itineraries, the Rocky Mountaineer is one of the most iconic train journeys out there. Hop aboard, sit back and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
