Small Ship Expeditions

Our planet is blue.

Water covers most of the earth, so obviously the best way to explore its far reaches is by boat. We’ve had an ongoing love affair with the sea ever since we began kayaking remote corners of the world many years ago. Eventually these rugged expeditions morphed into mothership trips to magnificent places we had discovered. (Like Vietnam, where we pioneered kayaking in Halong Bay.)  Since then we have created many outstanding adventures on the water for our guests. Our carefully chosen small expedition ships take you way off the beaten track to some of the world’s most stunning coastlines.

But these are not cruises. We want you to experience the world deeply, with all your senses: like paddle boarding with penguins, snorkeling around icebergs, kayaking with sea lions, surfing with dolphins… get the picture?

Join us. Your (small) ship awaits you!

And this, my dears, is the famous Café Iruña in Pamplona, where Hemingway hung out to eat, drink, smoke and work on his novels. Apart from now being smoke free, Café Iruña hasn’t changed much since he was here - the massive gilded mirrors, the old tiled floors and Arabesque pillars are the originals, dating from when it was founded in 1888. And despite the tourist draw of the famous author, it is still a local haunt. Maria is looking very happy, not just because she’s soaking up a bit of literary history, but also because lunch - the main meal of the day in Spain - is fabulous. Roast lamb (raised on nearby pastures) so tender it falls off the bone and an excellent Rioja red. Of course we will be here again during our new Rioja Spain #bikingtrip which starts in #pamplona.

I promised you vegetarian options! Spain is mushroom heaven, and these were all locally foraged. And those artichokes? Locally grown. Spain provides about 30% of the world’s supply of #artichokes. It’s great to eat them at the source. And in the middle of the picture - an expensive truffle, sniffed out not too far away, by specially trained dogs. Ready for lunch?
