Luxury of Silence

Our world is loud, with endless pings and chatter. Cut through the noise and change the way you travel this year. Explore the world meaningfully and let Pelorus design your once-in-a-lifetime travel or yachting experience that will see you far from the throngs of tourists and experiencing the true heart of a country.

Discover our handpicked selection of the most incredible experiences from our Travel and Yachting Designers, from uncovering faraway lands to enjoying intimate wildlife encounters. As Jane Austen writes, “Let us have the luxury of silence.”

Safari in Silence

Awaken to the jungle’s call or the sounds of the bush… if it’s seclusion you’re looking for, then Africa’s wetlands, rainforests and savannahs are where you will find it. Privacy and space to roam are plentiful, as is the wildlife. Picture a luxurious camp on a private island within Botswana’s Jao Reserve, sunrise safari drives through the African bush, and intimate wildlife encounters in some of the densest big-game areas.

Experience safari in a new way with a stay at a waterfront camp floating down the mighty Okavango Delta via mokoro (traditional canoe) for a slow, silent safari close to nature. Or, cover some ground in an electric vehicle to catch a glimpse of the Big Five. However you choose to explore, you’ll enjoy an authentic, enriching experience whilst leaving little impact.

Extraordinary Nordic adventures

The Nordic countries are majestic and ethereal, immersed in an otherworldly beauty that’s unlike anywhere else on Earth. Discover Sweden, whose landscape is peppered with thousands of lakes, freshwater streams and snow-capped mountains, making for an incredible wildlife-watching destination.

For adrenaline junkies, Norway offers completely unique adventures. Ski from sky to sea over untouched pistes with panoramic views over the Norwegian fjords. Become enchanted by this scenery as you plot your own voyage of discovery: driving in electric supercars, explore these pristine mountain passes, sea-spanning bridges and intricate web of tunnels for emission-free exploration.

Sail to the Ends of the Earth in Antarctica

Voyage to the southernmost point on Earth by luxury yacht as you discover the seventh continent. This desolate expanse of 24-hour daylight boasts unparalleled scenery, and you can have the chance to see it all from the comfort of your vessel.

From heli-skiing remote areas on untouched terrain to participating in conservation and scientific research, ice climbing some of the oldest glaciers in the world or kayaking through the icy waters, there is a wealth of activity for every type of guest.

Unplug and unwind: luxury camps in incredible locations

For the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, a private camp in the middle of nowhere offers an experience that no hotel, lodge or chalet can match. But just because these camps are off-the-beaten-track doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on comfort or luxury. 

Whether you opt for a bohemian canvas tent under the stars in Oman or an authentic experience in Africa complete with a white tablecloth supper and private chef, or a brand-new space-inspired pod in the middle of Antarctica, you can rest assured you won’t be disturbed. What makes these camps particularly special is their off-grid location, far from any artificial noise, light pollution and – most importantly – people.

Mindful moments in Asia

There’s a kind of mysticism that surrounds the Himalayas, where ancient traditions and modern life collide for a destination promoting wellness and, above all, happiness for the ultimate destination to relax. Crossing five countries – Bhutan, India, Nepal, China and Pakistan – these mountainous folds are home to incredible properties where serenity and simplicity meet luxury.

Embrace the local religion, Buddhism, as you meander along untouched paths and bask in this incredible scenery. Feel the wind on your skin as you hike to sacred temples and monasteries high up in the mountains. Enjoy the simplicity of the local cultures and connect to the heart of this intriguing land – and to yourself.

Uncover the secrets of the ocean floor by sub

There aren’t many parts of the planet that still hold as much mystery as the deep sea. In an experience usually reserved for marine researchers, documentary camera crews, and scientists, access the secrets of the ocean floor as you journey underwater in the comfort and safety of a state-of-the-art submersible.

Discover a silent and eerie world beneath the waves, close to historic wrecks on the ocean floor that have seldom, if ever, been visited by divers. Your submersible will give you 360-degree access through surround glass windows – venture into a universe of fascinating coral life in subtropical waters, or dive to the icy waters below in Antarctica.

Soar to the North Pole or beyond with OceanSky Cruises

Airships were first invented back in the early twentieth century, but they’re back—bigger and better than ever, and one of the most innovative, clean-tech ways to see the world. Join Pelorus in partnership with the ‘Airline of Airships’, OceanSky Cruises, in a sustainable land, sea and air experience like no other.

Glide effortlessly 1000ft above the ground in a floating hotel that is more akin to a luxury yacht. With Michelin star fine dining and 360-degree panoramic viewing areas, gain an entirely new perspective as you sail over some of the world’s most spectacular regions. Land in the North Pole and disembark for more Pelorus action at the world’s northernmost point, where few have gone before you.

Surf lovers will jump at the chance to hit uncrowded waves in a unique tow foiling expedition. Get out into the ocean and listen only to the powerful swirl of the water as you delight in quality breaks with peeling waves scattered across a vast array of reefs, point breaks, and secluded bays.

Pelorus has partnered up with Foil-X to offer you one-of-a-kind foil surfing adventures across the world – we recommend the Maldives for brilliant waves combined with pristine beaches and balmy turquoise seas, but you can also opt for Fiji, Indonesia, Alaska, South Brazil, Morocco and more.

Discover Spiritual and Cultural Connections in Australia’s Outback

There is no better place to immerse yourself in silence than in the beating spiritual heart of Australia’s Red Centre, Uluru. Home to the iconic 550 million-year-old Uluru Rock, this remote region of northern Australia and ancient desert land has also been the sacred site of the indigenous Anangu tribe for at least 30,000 years.

Discover extraordinary geological formations and fish in untouched waters at Sweets Lagoon before watching the sun cast changing colours against Uluru Rock as you dine in a secluded alcove among the dunes at sunset. Wake up in the morning to extraordinary views over the landscape from your bedroom in the ultra-luxurious Longitude 131.

Sail Indonesia’s archipelago in a traditional yacht

Boasting tens of thousands of verdant green islands surrounded by azure waters, Indonesia is a paradise for those looking to escape into the silence of the natural world.

Our team are experts in Indonesia (our co-founder Geordie and Yacht Expedition Designer Venetia both recently spent some time out there) – and we believe the best way to discover the rich marine and terrestrial biodiversity of Komodo National Park or the powder-white beaches of Raja Ampat is by yacht. Charter a traditional Phinisi yacht such as LAMIMA or DUNIA BARU, handcrafted using centuries-old methods and complete with all the luxury you’d expect, as well as boasting an attentive and truly hospitable crew. Spend your days snorkelling and diving with manta rays before paddle boarding to the shore to encounter the world-famous Komodo dragons, or trek deep into the forest with your expert guide.
