Independent Holidays

If you enjoy the freedom of exploring independently but don’t necessarily fancy a self-drive holiday, then we recommend our collection of touring holidays that combine independent travelling with the convenience of pre-arranged accommodation. Offering a choice of transportation options – including rail, coastal cruising and seaplane – often the mode of travel is as much as part of the adventure as the destinations themselves.

Our selection of independent, hand-picked itineraries offer something for everyone including cruise and rail adventures in Scandinavia, multi-centre breaks in Alaska, touring itineraries in Canada, Australia and New Zealand and relaxing escapes in the Pacific Islands. After you’ve got some ideas of where you’d like to go on your next independent adventure, call our experts who will tailor your trip to suit your every need.

Every day provided a new highlight. Whales one day, bears and eagles the next, stunning scenery all around.

Our independent holidays are designed to allow plenty of flexibility. If there’s something you’d really like to experience, excursions and extensions can easily be added to your itinerary. You are then entirely free to decide how to spend the rest of your time – either relaxing, discovering local sites or getting out and about using local transport.

Across some of our destinations it is not logistically possible to experience the country by car due to vast distances. Travelling independently by rail, air or water can offer the perfect alternative or complement to a self-drive holiday.

Our travel specialists have travelled extensively to all our destinations and are here to make recommendations and help put together a tailor made holiday completely personalised to your budget, timelines and interests.
