Situated at the southern end of the Indian Ocean there are a few islands that are close geographically, each with such different characters. First of all, Réunion Island, politically French territory with multiple cultural influences, it offers a very volcanic landscape – out of the ordinary with fantastic possibilities for walks and hikes around the famous Pitons culminating at 3,070 metres of altitude! Further east, Mauritius, a former British colony, with its superb coast offers many activities (beach, water sports, diving, snorkelling), there are the well-known tourist parts but also wilder parts such as the south coast. Finally the island of Rodrigues even further east, which has retained its authenticity and offers some of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. What could be better than to combine them during an exceptional trip.
In the autumn in New England, nature sets itself on fire, the leaves turn orange and red, and the spectacle becomes magical. Make sure to keep an eye on the road as your attention is captured by each tree, grove, or hill. And when the red finally fades, it is to make way for the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean and its beautiful coast. This hilly region of the United States, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, is ideal for a slow and contemplative road trip.
The Sultanate of Oman is exceptional in more than one way in this region of the world. The Omanis welcome you to their tradional world which is now slowly opening. The spectacular geography of their country takes you from the remote Empty Quarter to the mountain ranges — some exceeding 3,000 metres — via superb and empty coasts. A history flavoured by the multiple cultures of Zanzibar, Iran, and India. All this makes Oman a country apart and to be explored in detail by those who are fascinated by the world of Philby, Thomas, Thesiger, and Morris.
Little by little Scotland ensconces itself in our hearts and souls. The Scottish beauty and charm is gently finding its way into our beings. From the joie de vivre in the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow to the awe-inspiring landscapes and coasts of the Hebrides, Orkney or Shetland, this country invokes a wide range of emotional responses all the while leaving a great sense of tranquility.
We love to create tailor-made itineraries that include cities, valleys, fjords, estuaries and coasts by taking buses, trains, ferries and walking paths.
These trips become a collection of real little journeys, quickly evolving changes of scenery leaving you with still and haunting images. So when are you leaving for Scotland?
Whether you prefer the mountain to the sea, or vice versa, or like both, Croatia has a lot to offer: explore its magnificent National Parks or take a walk along the rivers, cruise from island to island from Pula to Dubrovnik (over a thousand islands!), from one cultural wonder to another, from one century to another, from one landscape to another, and from one piece of history to another. Whether you are looking for active travel, relaxation or cultural visits, Croatia has it for you.
A fascinating journey that bring you from the bustling Yangon to the majestic temples of Bagan; from the ethnic groups of the northeast to those of Inle Lake and its famous festival; then onto the religious and ancient capital of Mandalay, proudly set on the banks of the mythical Irrawaddy River.
Vietnam has much to offer; a trip to this country has many magical facets. Stroll through the rice fields of the north, meditate on the shores of Hạ Long Bay or cruise on its waters, marvel at the imperial city of Huế, drift along the Mekong, take a cooking class… or seclude yourself on an heavenly island. Vietnam is a country to be savoured and enjoyed without end.
Myanmar is an irresistible country with its great cultural richness, however it can also rouse a negative response with its well-known internal political situation. Majestic sites like Bagan, Inle Lake, or Mandalay; a multitude of ethnicities that can be found along peaceful backroads; beautiful temples: all this invites you to this meditative journey. By spending your money in its local economy you will help support this friendly population and encourage further the recent political changes.
One thing is certain, you must definitely go to Myanmar.
Bhutan, isolated both geographically and politically, is fascinating. Its perpetual quest for preservation of its cultural heritage coupled with that of the happiness of its inhabitants make the country seem a miraculous citadel which the stressed West looks upon with envy. There are many ways to discover Bhutan, depending on your desires – walking, biking, relaxing, hiking, mountains, countryside, or culture. It is a journey that should be prepared for well in advance. It is like a tasting menu that, once experienced, gives a burning desire to try it again.
