Explora Journeys, Pelorus Partner for Destination Experiences

Explora Journeys has teamed up with experiential travel company Pelorus to offer destination experiences in Scotland and Iceland. As a result of the partnership, guests onboard Explora I will have the chance to experience pre- and post-cruise land-based adventures, starting with two itineraries in September 2023, each lasting five days. Accompanied by a Pelorus host, guests can gain a richer understanding of nature, culture and history. They can also indulge in a range of activities such as hiking, stargazing and attending iconic festivals.

“Destination Experience in Scotland” (September 2-6): Besides taking in the sights of charming villages, bustling cities and untouched countryside, guests can participate in such activities as the Braemar Gathering, the well-known highland games; a helicopter trip to the Isle of Skye; and meeting an astronomer in the Cairngorms National Park and learning about the stars. They can also join a local wild food forager to find organic ingredients for cocktails and garnishes for the hotel’s chef to incorporate them into an evening meal, search for seals in secret lagoons and go hiking with mountain guides.

“Destination Experience in Iceland” (September 9-13): Pelorus hosts will introduce guests to the natural wonders and outdoor adventure that Iceland has to offer. From volcanoes, with waterfalls and glacial lakes, guests will hike, cycle and fly across this landscape to see and experience it. They will have the chance to fly by helicopter to the isolated, yet luxurious Deplar Farm, a grass-roofed 13-room hotel on the northern Troll Peninsula. They can embark on an Icelandic horse-riding experience in the remote landscape; reconnect with nature on bikes; enjoy wellness treatments and yoga practices in the wilds; and enjoy a helicopter ride to Reykjavik.

The exclusive Pelorus experiences in Scotland and Iceland can be booked via travel advisors in the Explora Journeys Experience Centre or via an Explora Journeys Ambassador.

Good to know: In the near future, Pelorus and Explora Journeys will also offer opportunities for guests to disembark and indulge in Pelorus experiences in Alaska, British Columbia, Costa Rica and Japan, among others.
