Nordic Magnificence

Discover the Scandinavian capitals of Copenhagen and Oslo. Glide through Copenhagen's canals for a different perspective of the city's landmarks. Witness the majestic beauty of Norway's countryside during a train ride to Flam and a cruise of the Songefjord, the King of Fjords.


Exploring Iceland

September 22 - October 2, 2018
It's a surprising, even astonishing land; one of massive glaciers and rumbling volcanoes, bubbling mud holes and powerful waterfalls; hugely abundant bird life and just 300,000 people; and where the sun never sets for six splendid weeks.


Journey to Cornwall: Bath, London, and the Cornish Coast

September 26 - October 7, 2018
Experience Bath’s magical ambience, creamy limestone architecture and ancient hot springs. Slip into the affluent world of England’s elite while roaming the gardens and manors of Longleat and Stourhead.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka - The Island of Serendipity

October 5 - 21, 2018
Though only a small island nation, Sri Lanka gives visitors a perfect trifecta of experiences with its diverse natural offerings, vivid culture, and layered history. We begin in Sri Lanka’s coastal capital city, Colombo, where Sri Lankan artistry is on full display and the scars of the country’s long civil war, now over, can be best understood.

Visit the Acropolis and witness magnificent views of Athens. Explore the charming, car-free island of Hydra. Learn a Greek folk dance at a festive farewell reception.

Botswana - Desert Sunset, Delta Dawn

Visit the Kalahari Desert and the otherworldly Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where a glowing, white expanse of natural salt deposits create glittering mirages that seem to reach out into the horizon endlessly.
