ENRICHED TRAVEL FOR THE CURIOUS

The first step in every journey is a conversation – we want to know why you travel and why you want to see the world. It’s how we craft experiences that transform your life. From kayaking in the stillness of the High Arctic to touring the lush wine lands of South Africa, we create itineraries that no amount of online searching could ever uncover. See where our clients have been and start imagining the possibilities to discover why the greatest journeys are personalized ones.

WHAT’S YOUR MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL ENCOUNTER?

In New Guinea I entered an ancient Asmat village, where all the men were chanting to drumbeats in a ceremony about to reveal a newly carved canoe. Out of nowhere I was approached by a tribesman, led to the middle of the circle, and then put in the canoe. I was lifted up and revealed to the dancing tribesmen surrounding me in their ceremonial regalia. They took me to the river, chanted, danced, and looked as if they were singing directly to me. It brought me to tears.

This is the joy of adventure travel. It’s not necessarily about climbing mountains or doing high-adrenaline activities (though it can be). It’s about meaningful experiences – travelling to unknown destinations and having incredible personal adventures, whether it’s walking beside elephants in Africa or staring in awe at the wonders of nature. It’s about finding common ground with an exotic culture and having your life lifted and transformed forever.

WHAT IS THE FURTHEST YOU’VE TRAVELLED?

It depends on how you define furthest. Furthest south I’ve been: Neko Harbour, Antarctica. Furthest north: Resolute (Nunavut), Canada. Furthest west: Yangon, Myanmar. And furthest east: Livingstone, Zambia.

WHO IS YOUR TYPICAL CLIENT?

There is no typical client. My clients are diverse – they come from different walks of life, are different ages, and range from singles and couples to large family groups. What connects them is that they are all looking for unique travel experiences. They are curious, well travelled, and have a powerful urge to travel more. They want me to create special moments for them and are not satisfied with cookie-cutter trips. They have a strong sense of adventure and a strong sense of luxury. And I have to discover what these terms mean to them personally. For some, luxury is not so much about thread count as it is wild animal count.

HOW DO YOU WORK WITH TRAVELLERS TO CREATE BESPOKE VACATIONS?

Often people will come to me with ideas, and we will sit down and collaborate – it can be over a drink or a meal, by phone, or via Skype. We’ll discuss what their interests are, their reasons for wanting to go a place, the logistics, and so on. I’ll create a proposal tailored to them, with an itinerary, descriptions, and images. I may also give them an alternative proposal for a completely different travel experience that they had never considered, on the chance it may strike a chord when they see it. Going back and forth, we will fine-tune the journey until it is perfect.
