• Gauging travel experiences

    Our polar blogger Brendan van Son is currently somewhere south of the Antarctic Circle. Before he set sail from Ushuaia, he gave us the lowdown on some of his favourite travel experiences. Next week, keep an eye out for Brendan’s thoughts on his Antarctic adventure.

  • Four Pilgrimages

    A few days until Christmas, so it seems apposite to have a blog with a religious bent. Their origin may lie in atoning for sins, but like Christmas, pilgrimages nowadays mean much more than just an expression of devotion to a particular faith. Whether secular or religious, they are in some ways the essence of travel: a practice that mingles the private and the public, mixes the many joys of camaraderie with the more private pleasures of reflection and discovery – of place, people and oneself. Here’s a whistlestop global tour of some of the great pilgrimages.

  • A dozen films to give you wanderlust, part one

    Films that are both inspiring journeys and inspire others to journey – the entries on this ‘The Beach’ -free zone all share the power to have you swiftly salivating at the scenery and adding a whole raft of new destinations to your ‘must visit’ list. In a blatant Harry Potter-style bid to spin out a good thing, we’ve split the list into two sections – the sequel will be released next week. Grab some popcorn, indulge, then let us know which flicks we missed.

  • The world’s best walking cities?

    More often than not, getting to grips with what makes a city tick is best done on foot. Whether it’s a museum ramble, exploration of cobblestoned old quarters, or idle paseo-style post-prandial perambulations, a walk is the best way of measuring up how a place exists on a human scale, how its inhabitants go about their daily lives, and of feeling the rhythm of the streets. Here are some of our favourite cities for a stroll. Head to our facebook page to chip in with others...

  • Bizarre landscapes

    All our trips get among landscapes that fascinate and capture the imagination. Some destinations, however, are just that little bit special in their ability to offer up the unexpected, where natural elements, and sometimes the hand of man, have worked overtime to create something that captivates because of its otherness. One we’ve recently added to our trips is Darvaza Crater in Turkmenistan, a mind-boggling open furnace in the middle of nowhere. Here’s Darvaza and a few of our other favourites.

  • Pack the kids! Unbeatable family adventures

    Our new family brochure is out, so in a leap of incredible imagination, we thought we’d run through five of our favourite moments from our adventures for the whole tribe.

  • Six great foodie cities

    Sometimes the joy of travel equals the joy of eating. Discovery, mixing with the locals, taking a chance that gloriously pays off – adventurous travelling and emboldened eating share the same delights. Here’s a globetrotting selection of some cities where we particularly enjoy what’s on the menu.

  • On the road – two months in the life of a Destination Manager

    I’ve had all sorts of jobs here at Peregrine, but my current role as Destination Manager for the Middle East and North Africa is the most fun (and hard work!).  I’ve recently returned from two months in the region and thought I’d give you an insight into what we do on our overseas trips.
