The Difference Between Cruising and UnCruising

I’m not a person who cruises. However, I am a person who uncruises. I know what you are thinking – “she’s lost her mind – there is not such thing as uncruising – she’s resorted to making up words!” un·cruis·ing /ˈənˈkro͞oziNG/ noun: uncruising – the action of engaging, connecting, and exploring unique places, oneself, and with others on a small ship/boat while on a most uncommon adventure. No, I haven’t lost my mind. I just finished my 2nd Uncruise in Panama and Costa Rica and have been remi...

Off the Grid in Belize With Island Expeditions

What does the word "luxury" really mean when you're heading to Belize? This is, after all, a country where nature is the main draw and there are exactly zero international luxury hotel chains. (Just a lot of really nice independent ones.) There are places where you will get turndown service, a driver in a nice SUV, or a villa with a view, but you can get those things almost anywhere around the world. We think the best reasons to come to Belize are the experiences, especially the ones that brin...

Colorado Dog Sledding and Winter Adventures

As we drove down the switchbacks of Berthoud Pass I pointed out Winter Park ski hill to my friend Lynn. We both looked at the little ant-like people coming down the runs and kept driving. Even though Colorado has had one of their best early snow seasons that had everyone flocking to the slopes in December, I still wasn’t interested. I am one of the few people who live in Colorado that doesn’t like downhill skiing. However, I too was excited by all of the early Colorado snow as we passed through ...

A river ride to Rishikesh: India's new adventure capital

Rishikesh shot to fame when the Beatles arrived, in search of enlightenment. Half a century on, the area is attracting a different kind of seeker – those after rapids, zipwires and mountain treksI’ve only been in the raft a few minutes, bobbling down a placid stretch of India’s holy Ganges River, before my guide, Kalyan Singh Bhandari, puts his paddle down and sings a haunting Garhwali folk song typical of these Himalayan foothills. The warbling tune is, he says, meant to bring us good luck as w...

Off the chart: the big comeback of paper maps

As Stanfords travel bookshop moves into new London premises after 118 years, its cartographer explains how the ability to tailor-make any map is keeping their magic aliveWhen I was living in Yemen during the 1980s, someone gave me a battered old map. Information was scarce then, and accurate maps were extremely hard to come by. So departing expatriates tended to pass on any treasures to new arrivals. As he did so, my benefactor paused. “Be careful,” he said, “You don’t want to get caught with th...

Are you looking for a Peru itinerary that enables adventure travel for everyone in South America? A trip that a divergent group or family can enjoy together? Skip the set itineraries and choose a more flexible Lares adventure instead. One woman in my group was clearly worn out after a hard day of hiking the day before and our extensive walk around the ruins this day.

Dancing with wolves (nearby): a wild New Year’s Eve in Canada

At an eco-lodge in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, New Year’s Eve is celebrated around a campfire, surrounded by snow, endless forest and wolves “Hello,” I called. “Anyone there?”I was beginning to lose hope I’d ever find the Algonquin Eco-Lodge. It was as dark as a coal mine on the thickly wooded trail, the temperature around -25C. A sign about 15 minutes back said it was a 2.5km walk from the parking lot. There had been a few forks in the path and now I thought I might have taken a wrong t...

Castles and museums, beaches and cities, train lines and walking trails – plus gorgeous places to eat and stay. We share our favourites finds of the past 12 monthsOn the road out of Dakar, heading down the coast, we passed through a baobab forest.

Why You Should Stay for Days in Peru’s Sacred Valley

If you look through major tour company itineraries for Peru, you'll see that most of them don't spend much time in the Sacred Valley between Cusco and Machu Picchu. They rush through the Valle Sagrado to tick off a few sites like Pisac and Ollaytantambo on a bus tour. Or they skip the valley altogether and just ride through on the Hiram Bingham luxury train. This is a big shame and it pains us to see so many travelers rushing through Peru. When you only hit the well-known highlights, you spend...
