Wildlife trips

The natural world has always played an important role in Discover the World’s holidays – from the rugged beauty of Iceland and New Zealand where the natural scenery is complemented by wonderful birding and whale-watching opportunities, to the wildlife-rich polar regions, Australia’s unique marsupials, the bears of Canada and Alaska and, of course, the ‘Big Five’ in their African surroundings.

Nordic holidays

From Sweden’s exquisite Icehotel and log-burning wilderness lodges deep in the heart of Finnish Lapland to Norway’s spellbinding fjords and the Arctic wilderness of Greenland, Discover the World offers a wide range of holidays throughout Europe’s far north. Over the years, they have introduced many wonderful experiences including Superjeep Safaris in monster trucks and whale-watching in Iceland, searching for the Northern Lights, mushing-your-own husky sledding trips and even the first-ever ‘tourist’ trips to view Iceland’s volcanic eruptions!

Holidays to Iceland

Discover the World is founded on a love affair with travel that first began with Iceland 35 years ago. Imagine a land where volcanoes loom above vast icecaps, where black-sand beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and breathtaking waterfalls crash over 100m-tall cliffs. Whether experienced under the midnight sun or from a hot tub under the glow of the Northern Lights, this is a country that really has it all.

Voyages of Discovery

From remote polar regions and spectacular Norwegian fjords to Alaska’s famed Inside Passage and the sub-tropical beauty of New Zealand’s off-shore islands, Discover the World's collection of small-ship cruise holidays combine relaxation and adventure and offer a truly unforgettable way to explore.
