We now live in a society of experience, it’s no longer just about where you can go, but how you can feel and who you can be. The concept of a successful holiday is not just about returning home refreshed and sun-kissed; it is also about bringing an authentic experience to life, discovering hidden gems and connecting with the local culture and people. Maybe you’re planning to whisk the family away on an adventure or you’re thinking of ticking a once-in-a-lifetime journey off your bucket list - in this blogpost, Go Bespoke highlights five unforgettable experiences which are guaranteed to inspire you to experience something new.
Explore Peru’s natural wonders aboard the Andean Explorer
Hop aboard South America’s first luxury sleeper train, starting in Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire. Admire spectacular views of the Andean landscapes; from the dazzling blue waters of Lake Titicaca, and the deep Colca canyon to small traditional villages in the altiplano and the towering snow-capped peaks. During your luxurious journey, meals are served in one of the two beautiful dining carriages, cooked by chefs from Belmond Hotel Monasterio in Cusco using locally sourced produce. Choose from a selection of carefully crafted journeys starting in Cusco, Puno or Peru’s colonial city, Arequipa. Depending on your journey, selected excursions are included en route in beautiful destinations such as La Raya, Raqchi ruins or the unique reed islands on Lake Titicaca. // Price from £3,979pp.
Discover Indonesia aboard a fully-catered phinisi yacht
Tiger Blue is a traditional 34m timber phinisi yacht which sails around the stunning islands of Eastern Indonesia. Designed with families and groups of friends in mind, a journey on Tiger Blue is guaranteed to be packed with unforgettable moments whether it be searching for dragons on Komodo, spotting birds of paradise in West Papua or snorkelling with giant manta rays over the coral gardens of Raja Ampat. Tiger Blue can accommodate up to 12 guests with a choice of 2 cabin types and the yacht can either be chartered exclusively or you can join an existing trip in one of the cabins on selected dates. // Price from £4,200pp for a 7 night trip in a Double Standard Cabin, including all meals and excursions.
Book yourself into a holistic retreat in India
Replenish your body and mind whilst also experiencing some of the most majestic, inspiring and energetic places in the East. This holistic wellness-inspired trip focuses on nutrition, meditation and yoga – the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. Prior to your trip, you will meet with renowned nutritionist Sarah Macklin at her Harley Street clinic, where you will learn to travel better with her expert guidance to enhance your physical and mental well-being. This two-week long trip will see you journey through Rajasthan and its royal cities; watch the sunrise over the Taj Mahal, join a cooking lesson based on Sarah’s dietary guidance, and see the sun set during an evening rooftop yoga class. Other activities during the trip include experiencing a sacred aarti ceremony at a Hindu temple and a private viewing with the curator of the Mehrangarh Fort Museum. Stay in a five-star island palace and also see how the locals live as you wander the cobalt streets of Jodhpur’s old town. // Price on request
Ski on your own private mountain
New Zealand’s best-kept secret is an unspoiled playground where you can indulge in a completely private mountain experience for a group of up to 24 guests, with the Ski Area all to yourselves, even if you’re not an advanced skier or boarder. Enjoy free rein of 264 hectares and over 500 vertical metres of pristine high-country terrain at Soho Basin. Skip the chairlift queue and jump on state-of-the-art snowcats with specially-designed heated passenger cabins, taking in breath-taking vistas all the way from Fiordland to the West Coast, and Wanaka to Queenstown. Adventurous skiers can explore more challenging terrain or simply enjoy cutting your own lines and navigating more leisurely groomed runs, wide open slopes, chutes or un-groomed zones. After a morning of exploration with experienced guides, you’ll be treated to a gourmet three-course lunch paired with Amisfield wines on the deck of an Alpine Hut where you can relax and enjoy the blissful mountainous surroundings // Price from £21,995 per day for exclusive hire for a group of 24. Individuals and smaller groups can also book from approx £865pp.
Take yourself off to a remote tropical island
Fanjove Island is one of six small islands in the Songosongo Archipelago, just off the coast of Tanzania, offering an authentic castaway experience. Abundant with resident marine life and an 11km long coral reef which spans for miles, the prolific wildlife includes spinner dolphin, green turtles and humpback whales. An unadulterated paradise, only the 19th century lighthouse and architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous human occupation. Six discreet, eco-friendly private bandas made from sustainable wood and thatch are set along the sandy shore, each resembles a Dhow sail and is designed to minimise its environmental footprint. Indeed, 3% of the income from Fanjove Island is donated to the local community of Songosongo Island for social development projects. Embark on pre-breakfast snorkels, spend your day exploring on foot with a local guide or venture out on a dolphin excursion. Then try your hand at catching a barracuda or take one of the island’s four kayaks to navigate the whole main island before ending your day relaxing on the beach // Price from £2,030pp for 7 nights, excluding flights.
