More than 100 years since the sinking of RMS Titanic, we are thrilled to share the opportunity for a limited number of travellers to be part of an epic experience to rediscover the most famous shipwreck in history. Commencing in 2019, the 8-day journey which we are developing with our partners OceanGate Inc, will take just 9 adventurers at a time from the coast of Newfoundland, Canada on a deep ocean discovery to the Titanic.
This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience and an expedition designed only for those with an adventurous spirit. Far fewer people have visited the wreck of the Titanic than the number who have been to space or summited Mt. Everest.Read More

People often ask how we have such an encyclopaedic knowledge of the world we share. Travelling extensively to all corners of the globe not only gives us firsthand knowledge to report back on, but also the chance to meet like-minded adventurers, artists, explorers and entrepreneurs along the way – people who, like us, think beyond borders and imagine the unimaginable.
To design memorable and meaningful travel experiences, we work with an intricate network who live and breathe the places they call home. It’s not just a breathtaking location that inspires us, it is also the people behind it who really help bring the experience to life.Read More
Austrian by name, Argentinian by nature, meet Jakob von Plessen, South America’s real gaucho and horse whisperer. Home is El Boqueron, a sleepy estancia deep in Argentina’s Pampas, were guests come for a stopover en route to Patagonia and end up staying for longer, drawn to the tranquil pace of gaucho life and hooked on the routine of poolside lounging, polo playing and asado evenings.Read More

Meet Alex Thomson, aka "James Bond of the ocean". As a yachtsman and racer, he broke his own record of the fastest solo circumnavigation of the globe in a monohull. After 74 days, 19 hours and 35 minutes, Alex reached the finish line of the Vendée Globe in January 2017. An outstanding accomplishment made even more extraordinary by the fact that his boat suffered potentially race-ending damage after just 13 days at sea, but even this major setback didn't stop him finishing the race as the fastest Brit ever and securing second place. Ahead of his next attempt to win the 26,000-mile, single-handed, non-stop, round-the-world race (not surprisingly dubbed the "Everest of sailing") we have had a chance to catch up with Alex and get a glimpse of what inspires and continues to motivate him to take to the high seas...
