Festive Experiences with Pelorus: Private Adventures

By Christina Tsangaris

The excitement of Christmas and New Year are swiftly approaching, and as the long dark evenings begin to settle in around us, we begin to dream and drift between the idea of a mystical winter wonderland or a sun-drenched tropical island. In a time where seclusion and space are paramount, we have gathered together a collection of desirable locations to inspire your ultimate winter revival, perfect for you and the family.

Pelorus designs bespoke experiences that transform our perspective. The Pelorus Private Adventures Team utilise an extensive network of industry contacts, partnered with an ambition to change the way you travel. Leaving no stone unturned in building impeccable itineraries for private travellers.

Pelorus are planning ahead as these Autumnal months rejuvenate our passion to travel again. Whilst there is a promising window to travel over the festive period, they understand that it’s more important than ever to travel safely. All experiences are now built with help from their consultant Infection Prevention & Control Advisor and they offer complete flexibility through their Covid Promise.

If it is relaxation and rejuvenation you seek, jet off to the Southern Hemisphere for plenty of pampering on the sun-soaked beaches of the Maldives. An idyllic archipelagic island country in the Indian Ocean, these islands occupies one of the most desirable locations on earth.

Experiences such as coral planting, a marine conservation expedition and a tour of their organic gardens will appeal to the eco and health conscious guest. Or simply, bask in the sun whilst indulging in tropical delights and perhaps, a luxury spa treatment. Enjoy sundowners whilst the sun dips below the horizon, expelling a dreamy mesh of colour into the sky.

Be it floating around the islands on board your fabulously chic yacht, or barefoot bliss in a perfectly manicured stilted resort projected out into the azure waters… Both offer uninterrupted views of the ocean, creating a unique castaway experience of the upmost luxury.

One of the most naturally fascinating areas on Earth, the Nordic regions’ beauty is prolific. A beguiling combination of stunning fjords, glaciers, quaint villages and contemporary design. The Scandinavian kingdoms prove a vibrant treasure-trove for nature-enthusiasts and a wonderful destination to discover over the festive period.

Finland is a fusion of wild beauty, chic design and culinary excellence. Geographically, the north boasts an impressive array of ice fields, whilst the south is home to beautiful Fjords. Traversing across Lapland in a sled pulled by reindeer under the low winter sun is a dream for the little adventurers amongst you, especially over Christmas.

A kingdom which perfectly showcases the wilderness of Scandinavia, Norway boasts mystical fjords, idyllic Nordic villages and colourful harbours. It is during these dark winter months the Norwegian lights dance across the sky, creating the most beautiful artistic display, visible from the warmth of your isolated Arctic Lodge.
