AT30 – Galapa-gosh

One week from £4750pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and FB accommodation on a featured vessel

What it feels like to be there...

Floating through the mild Pacific waters around the Galapagos, it feels like you are filming a wildlife documentary. Fantastic, unusual creatures with no fear of man allow you to get up close and personal. The underwater wonders are just as fabulous: seals, sea lions, manta rays and hammerheads make this a world-class dive site. 

What to do there…

The Galapagos is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Boat-trips, Sailing, Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Hiking, Nature-walks, Photography, Bird-watching, Ecology.
  • Other: Snorkelling, Sun-bathing, Swimming, Jacuzzi, Library.

Where to stay…

The best way to see these amazing islands is from a boat. The key decision is whether you want an expedition vessel or a scuba diving live-aboard. We recommend 'Eclipse' as the best of the former and the ‘Galapagos Aggressors (I & II)’ for the latter.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Galapagos are a 2.5-4h flight from Quito via Guayaquil (connections vary). Cotacachi is 1.5h drive from Quito.
  • Weather: the mainland is warm and humid all year round, wetter Dec-May. Galapagos are dry and warm all year.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The Galapagos is about life; evolution playing out before your eyes. The diving is truly magnificent, so if you have any Cousteau fantasies, qualify before you come and log some warm-up dives. There is so much going on above the water and near the surface that you won’t miss out if you aren’t ready to take the plunge. Day after day of close encounters and perfect photo-opps will keep you fully entertained. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

One week from £3395pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and AI accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

The giant twisting rock towers of Torres del Paine, deep in Southern Patagonia, climb majestically out of a fairytale landscape where tiny snowflakes sparkle like falling crystals in the sunshine, flowers pop out through frozen meadows and out-of-place pink flamingos stand in an iceberg filled lake. 

What to do there…

Torres del Paine is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Hiking, Nature-walks, Horse-riding, Boat-trips, Glacier-treks, Photography, Ecology, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Wine-tasting, Ranch-visits, Swimming, Jacuzzi, Gym/Fitness.

Where to stay…

5* Hotel Salto Chico is the perfect place to experience the wonder of Torres del Paine, with the best views, facilities and their own stables. Adventure guides flock from all over the world to study here, such is their dedication to service. 5* Patagonia Camp is an exciting, eco-alternative, with luxury yurts around a stylish central lodge.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Santiago to Torres del Paine is 3.5-4h flight (to Punta Arenas) and 5-5.5h drive. Santiago to Portillo is 1.5-2h drive.
  • Weather: Santiago is warm and dry year round, Torres del Paine is cold and dry, with snow Jun-Sep.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

There is something truly special about returning from an exciting day’s hike, lying back in a hot tub in a frozen wilderness and sipping champagne while your damp hair freezes and turns crunchy. Or taking a horse-ride through the snow to a lake where a great glacier ‘seeds’ sky-blue icebergs that float gently towards you. These are the moments that make Torres del Paine fantastical.

What it feels like to be there...

The Great Barrier Reef is an immense and beautiful natural wonder. Teeming with life and colour, it would take more than 10 hours to drive its length. The warm sea laps the white-golden sands of the surrounding islands and coasts, and jungle palms flutter and wave back at the giant clams and turtles in the shallows. 

What to do there…

The Barrier Reef is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Sailing, Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Boat-trips, Spa/Massage, Wine-tasting.
  • Other: Snorkelling, Swimming, Gym/Fitness, Golf, Library.

Where to stay…

5* Qualia sits on the white-sand jungle islands of the Whitsundays at the south end of the Barrier Reef. Dedicated to sensory experiences, the blend of exciting water sports, relaxing spas and fine dining make it a magnificent resort. 5* Sea Temple Resort & Spa Port Douglas, at the north end, is a great alternative, with direct access to rainforests and reef.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Hamilton Island is 1.5h from Cairns or Brisbane by air, 2-3h from Sydney and Melbourne. Port Douglas and Daintree are 1-2h north of Cairns by car.
  • Weather: hot and wet year round (dryer in winter, Jun-Aug)

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The Barrier Reef is one of the best places in the world to get a perfect aquarium-style underwater view. It is so huge, bright and interesting at relatively shallow depths that even non-divers see it in style. The decadent hotels and yachts offer plenty of relaxing luxuriousness to accompany the exciting adventures on the water. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

AT03 – Wild Cave Island

What it feels like to be there...

Borneo has all the ingredients for an amazing adventure: colourful coral reefs, turquoise seas, white sand, dense jungle, deep dark caves, a towering mountain, and an orangutan or two. What more could you need? How about a stylish eco-lodge to relax in while you observe - and help conserve - this island paradise? 

What to do there…

Kinabalu is packed with activities and perfect for 5 to 7 days:
  • Major: Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Jungle-treks, Nature-walks, Ecology, Orangutan-watching, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Mountain-treks, Swimming, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

The 4.5* Gayana Eco Resort has 52 over-water cabins and is a great base from which to experience the coral-rich waters off Borneo. Situated on a jungle covered island near Kota Kinabalu, you can drop straight from your room into nature, or grab a boat to the mainland for a trip to the orangutan sanctuaries or Mount Kinabalu.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Kota Kinabalu (<1h away) is the main travel hub for the region. Overland and sea travel are slow, but interesting.
  • Weather: hot and humid all year round. Expect a short but spectacular daily jungle shower Nov-Jan.
  • Warning: Sarawak is a remote jungle area and while its better hotels and restaurants are good, they are not yet comparable with the high-end luxury of Peninsular Malaysia.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Being able to actively conserve the natural environment you have come to see is a great addition to the eco-lodge experience. Gayana has an on-site Marine Ecology Center where you can plant corals and propagate endangered giant clams during your stay. If you want more, take a magnificent overnight trip to Sandakan’s orangutan sanctuary and Turtle Island, or a day trip to nearby Rasa Ria’s bijou sanctuary.
