From houseboats to homestays and everything in between, our trips stay at some picturesque, locally-owned and just downright cool places. Here’s our list of unique stays that are so much more than a place to sleep at night.

A tent along the Quarry Trail in Peru

Quarry Trail Campsite, Peru

Camp along the Quarry Trail and you'll wake up to views of soaring peaks and stunning valleys. While the Inca Trail allows up to 500 hikers per day, you'll seldom see another group along the Quarry Trail trek, meaning you get those spectacular views all to yourself.

An adventure cruise ship in Greece

Adventure Cruise Ship, Worldwide

When living aboard our Adventure Cruise ships (which are more like floating boutique hotels than cruise ships), you’ll experience your destination by both land and sea. Explore hidden gems with your local leader, sample the local cuisine and pull into small ports where you can get to know the locals instead of outnumber them.
