Meeting Your Expectations

Most of our holidays can be adapted to a certain extent to suit you. Independent holidays within Iceland, New Zealand and Australia are the most flexible, along with Canada and summer self drives in Alaska and Norway. Of course, geography and logistical considerations mean that some destinations, such as the Polar regions, offer limited scope for tailor making. In these instances we are able to give expert advice on exactly what can or cannot be done and then suggest an appropriate alternative should the need arise.
