DESTINATION INSIDERS HELPED DESIGN THESE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES FOR SOME OF OUR PAST GUESTS

Misty Fjords Flightseeing & Crab Feast in Ketchikan, Alaska

Guests took a private flight to Misty Fjords National Monument, experienced a thrilling water landing, and savored a crab feast at the rustic George Inlet Lodge. The plane featured exceptional views of this 2-million-acre wilderness area. Explorers marveled at granite cliffs, 1,000-foot cascading waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes, and the incredible beauty and grandeur of Alaska.

Enchanting Sintra and Pena Palace in Lisbon, Portugal

Visitors traveled to the woodlands and magnificent palaces of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This charming village, tucked away amid protected forests and tranquil lakes, was once the summer residence of Portugal’s kings. Guests visited Pena Palace and enjoyed lunch at the oldest hotel on the Iberian Peninsula, then explored Sintra’s cobbled lanes dotted with quaint merchant and artisan shops.

Idyllic Symi Island by Motor Yacht in Rhodes, Greece

This private voyage navigated guests off the beaten path to discover a hidden gem in the Greek Isles. They boarded a motor yacht and cruised to the island of Symi, where they went ashore for a day of swimming, sunshine, and exploration. They also traveled to a storybook seaside village, strolled the charming alleyways, and enjoyed lunch at a local tavern.

Jade Mountain Beach and Spa Day in Castries, St. Lucia

Travelers spent the day immersed in the solace of St. Lucia's less-traveled west coast. They boarded a private boat to Jade Mountain, a resort heralded for its oneness with nature. Guests kayaked, snorkeled, sailed, and just took in the tropics. Finally, they enjoyed a relaxing treatment at the beachside Kai en Ciel Spa and savored an al fresco lunch at the resort.
