Iconic journeys

Escape the everyday on an awe-inspiring journey

Iconic journeys are once in a lifetime – the crème de la crème of immersive travel experiences. From expeditions tracing the footsteps of the world’s revered explorers, to journeys encompassing historic landmarks most only get to see on screen.

Journey through Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur – better known as India’s Golden Triangle  – and you can marvel at the multi-faceted marble swirls of the Taj Mahal up-close. Or, embark on a Grand Tour of China and trek the craggy ramparts of the Great Wall, which snakes across the mist-shrouded mountains of China’s northern border.

Step into the Lost City of Machu Picchu on a tour of South America. Speed across the tarmac of America’s Route 66  by motorbike. Or, ride through the Canadian Rockies and sail out to Alaska’s glaciers on our ultimate Rocky Mountaineer journey. If there’s a wonder of the world you’ve always dreamed of seeing, we can take you there. So, start planning your own iconic journey with one of our Destination Specialists today.

Frequently Asked Questions

The classic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu takes around four days, starting from km82. That said, there are many alternative routes, so you can spread it out over a much longer timeframe, or do it in the space of just one day.
