The travel company has put together a selection of “pin-drop” packages that incorporate the best local scenery, as well as culture and tradition, for an unforgettable and peaceful trip. Here are some examples of the best silent destinations in the world.
Explore The Madagascan Rainforest
This is the ideal trip for anyone fond of wildlife and nature in general. On the land, trek through the rainforests, meeting the lemurs of Madagascar and other local wildlife. Alternatively enjoy a guided night walk in the rainforest, taking in all the sounds of nature. Head to the beautiful beaches and try out your skills at snorkeling in the crystal clear water, gazing at the myriad of marine life. Imagine staying in a historical Malagasy cabana, while dining on the island’s best cuisine at the Rianasoa Waterfall close by. Sounds like magic to us!
Norway’s Remote Lofoten Islands
A six-day road trip around Norway’s Lofoten Islands is a truly beautiful and peaceful way to spend a vacation. The remote islands form an archipelago, connected by a ribbon of roads and bridges. As you drive, take in the dramatic fjords of Norway, explore the tiny fishing villages, or try your hand at coastal kayaking and hill hiking. In between, dine on freshly caught seafood, gazing at the views. Stopover on the side of the road to sit and gaze at the view in perfect silence.
Visit Rural Ladakh In India
A 12-day trip takes travelers into the north of India to experience traditional rural life upfront and personally. Stay away from the bustling cities and towns and enjoy the beautiful, surrounding mountainous scenery while visiting traditional Tibetan Buddhist communities. Buddhists from the Thiksey Monastery encourage visitors to accompany them at sunrise prayers, which is a perfect way to find your inner peace and truly relax.
Bhutan Trekking Adventure In The Himalayas
Head to Bhutan for an amazing journey, visiting the famous Dagala Thousand Lakes of the Himalayas, visit the country’s most iconic and beautiful monasteries, or try your paddle at white water rafting. The journey can be challenging at times, but the beautiful surrounding views more than makeup for it, with the surrounding soaring peaks and crystal-clear lakes.
