Our tailor made holidays – for couples and groups

We’ll design a holiday that is unique to you. Perhaps you’d like to see the Northern Lights, and combine this with cross-country skiing, and ice fishing. Or perhaps the rugged West coast of Ireland calls where you’ll go for exhilarating walks, visit the wildlife on Inishkea Island and learn the art of wildlife photography. We have literally hundreds of combinations of holidays where you can pick out the elements that suit you and your partner, or your group.

If you are looking to spend your honeymoon in Scandinavia, we can help. We have a huge range of tailor made programmes year round including trips to search for the Northern Lights and summer fjord tours.

Hand-picked accommodation

We understand that whatever you do during the day, you’ll want to have a good sleep at the end of it. We choose accommodation that is unique and almost always owned by independent hosts who’ll ensure you have a warm welcome. Our portfolio covers everything from landscape hotels deep in the forest through to ice hotels in northern Scandinavia. We also stay in rustic cabins – some with a focus on simple facilities to enjoy nature at its wildest, and some which have all the luxurious extras for a cosy stay. You can even combine more than one type of accommodation during your holiday.

Local guides and wide range of activities

Our holidays immerse you into wild places with the help of local people. These include foragers, walkers, kayakers, cross-country skiers, bread-makers, tweed weavers – the list goes on. We know that their local knowledge and experience offers you something out of the ordinary. So why not select the activities that interest you from our range of ideas and create your bespoke programme with all the detail organised on your behalf?
