There are certain times in life that call for a big celebration – and a big holiday to go with it! If you’ve got a special anniversary or birthday this year, we can’t think of a better way to mark the occasion than by booking the trip of a lifetime.

40th Birthday

Got the big 4-0 coming up this year? Congratulations! Life begins at 40. Why not treat yourself or a loved one to something completely different – like a guided walking holiday in the mighty fjords of Greenland. Or an epic adventure in Chile from Patagonia to the Atacama Desert.

50th Birthday

You know what they say… 50 is the new 30. Time to show the young’uns how to holiday! Our free-spirited self-drives in Iceland feature wonderful places to stay and you’ll also get free use of one of our snazzy iDiscover – a digital travel companion full of ideas for walks, places to eat and more. Alaska is another liberating self-drive destination, but if you feel like leaving the driving to someone else, consider a luxury coach tour in New Zealand.

60th Birthday

You’re approaching 60, but there’s still so much of the world to see and so many things to do. Time to revisit that bucket list of yours! Chances are, there’s an expedition cruise to Antarctica somewhere in your top 10? Or a luxury bush and rainforest experience in Australia? And if you’ve always dreamed of seeing the northern lights dance above the snow-covered forests of Lapland, we’re the experts in aurora hunting trips.

10th Wedding Anniversary

Just the two of you, on a romantic short break at the Icehotel… what better way to celebrate a decade of marriage than by spending a night snuggled up in one of the legendary ice suites, raising a glass in the Icebar and spicing it all up with some husky sledding and ice-sculpting. For a tropical twist, we can whisk you off on an exotic cruise to the Marquesas in the South Pacific. Or how about some city lovin’ on a Scandinavia capital break?

25th Wedding Anniversary

This is one of married life’s biggies. It’s not a time for cheap hotels – go for more luxury and less time away if your budget is limited. Why not celebrate with a group of close friends on a short break in Iceland – we know plenty of special countryside retreats, like Hotel Husafell, where a 3-night holiday can be given the ‘silver service’ with fine dining, a spot of pampering and some great activities.

40th Wedding Anniversary

Celebrate your ruby wedding anniversary by enjoying the finer things in life. You deserve it! Sit back and relax on a classic train journey in Australia, combining the legendary Ghan with a winery tour of Victoria. In Norway, our Hurtigruten voyages slip through the majestic fjords into the land of the midnight sun, while our Orcas and Aurora tour reveals the natural wonders of the Land of Fire & Ice with award-winning guides.

50th Wedding Anniversary

Family matters. When you’ve been married for 50 years it matters perhaps more than anything. Plan a golden celebration with the children and grandchildren at a cosy hotel in the wilds of Sweden – we can arrange everything from direct flights, transfers and accommodation to activities suitable for all ages, winter or summer. An extended family holiday in a wilderness lodge in Canada is another great way to celebrate in style.
