Search for Polar Bears in Canada

When you're standing on the outdoor platform of a Polar Rover, the chill Arctic air feels invigorating. But not as much as the sight of the huge polar bear that wanders up alongside. Safely elevated above him, you’re nonetheless just feet away as you peer down at his shaggy, cream-colored bulk. Noticing us, he stops, sniffs and turns his face our way, curious. Awed, we draw in our breath, respecting the silence. The big bear ambles, then halts again. He rises on his haunches to peer at us more deliberately. We grin like kids, filled with delight. We watch. We wonder. Minutes go by, perhaps an hour, who knows? On the tundra, among the bears, time stands still. Join us in Churchill for one of nature's most wondrous wildlife encounters!

Snorkel between continents in Iceland

Iceland is one of the best countries in the world for adventure travel, with opportunities for everything from glacier hiking to snorkeling and diving. For the latter, head straight to Thingvellir National Park along the country's Golden Circle route, where two tectonic plates slowly pull apart at the rate of about two centimeters per year. The phenomenon results in the Silfra fissure, a stunning rift valley where travelers can snorkel or dive in impossibly clear (and cold) waters. I can help you create an amazing customized Iceland itinerary that includes this experience! 

Spend the night at Machu Picchu 

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the ONLY hotel located adjacent to the mystifying ancient Inca citadel. As the only Machu Picchu hotel, you’ll enjoy exceptionally easy access from early morning to late afternoon. This is an ideal time to explore, when most of the day visitors and buses have left.

Swim to the edge of Victoria Falls at Devil's Pool

Devil's Pool is a natural rock pool located next to Livingstone Island on the lip of Victoria Falls. During the dry season, the pool is shallow enough to allow visitors to swim safely to the edge, where they are protected from the 330 foot/ 100 meter drop by a wall of submerged rock. Under the supervision of a local guide, it is even possible to stare over the edge of the abyss into the boiling pot of froth and spray below. This is the closest that you can get to the Falls, and an unforgettable way to experience the sheer power of one of the world's Seven Natural Wonders. 

Snorkel with Manta Rays at Night in Kona, HI

Snorkeling with manta rays on the Big Island of Hawaii offers a peek at one of nature’s great ocean creatures. Swim alongside rays with wingspans of up to 16 feet.
