For you, travel is something beyond lavish rooms and photo opportunities. It’s a chance to pamper within, not without. You keep your carbon footprint small. Ask questions about the ingredients on the menu. You become friends with the waiter, and the chef. Names and addresses kept on postcards. “Keep in touch,” they say. And you do, because those connections are a treasure. We have collected experiences you’ll love, bringing you closer to the place and its people.
From cookery classes beside Machu Picchu to a hands-on experience at a magical Madeiran farm, we have something for everyone.
