Iceland in Depth | June 2024

Europe

Iceland's spectacular natural landscapes showcase the ancient geothermal forces that have been at work for thousands of years. Iceland is known for its volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields, waterfalls, and hot springs. The island's interior is a cold and uninhabitable combination of sand, mountains, and lava fields. From humble Nordic origins it has become one of Europe’s leading eco-paradises, boasting the largest national park in the European Union - Vatnajökull, where you’ll discover pristine streams full of salmon, glacier trails, five-gaited Icelandic horses, and bubbling pools of mud and sulphur.

Corsica, Sardinia and Malta | September 2024

Europe

Discover these three wonderful Mediterranean Islands, Corsica, Sardinia and Malta… all with a unique point of difference. Sardinia remains part of Italy but has fiercely retained its own proud culture and unique influences; then there is the laid back, very rustic French governed Corsica, and lastly English speaking Malta, an independent nation which was once a British colony. Each of the islands are relatively small and easy to get around, and all have wonderful food and wine and ancient history, medieval villages, stunning landscapes and that envious relaxed lifestyle.

Crete, Cyprus and Rhodes | April 2025

Europe

Crete’s natural beauty is equalled only by the richness of its history. The island is the birthplace of the first advanced society on European soil, the Minoans, who ruled over much of the Aegean some 4,000 years ago. You’ll find vestiges of this mysterious civilisation all over Crete, including the famous “Palace of Knossos” and the legend of the labyrinth of King Minos and the slaying of the Minotaur by Theseus to save the kings daughter, Ariadne. At the crossroads of three continents, Crete has been coveted and occupied by consecutive invaders.

The Balkans | September 2025

Europe

The Balkans is a sprawling peninsula which derives its name from the Turkish word meaning ‘a chain of wooded mountains’. Those mountains are the Balkans, a place where farming first reached Europe way back in the Neolithic era. To the west is the Adriatic Sea, with the Mediterranean Sea to the south and the Black Sea to the east. It is perhaps easier to think of the Balkan States as “South-eastern Europe”. Wholly or partially on the peninsula, the region is made up of many fascinating countries. Our tour includes seven of them – Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia and Serbia.
