Leave the city lights behind and discover the remotest destinations in the world on these specially curated Culture Trip adventures.

We all love a city break, but there comes a time when you really need to get away from it all. Cue a trip to one of the remotest places in the world. Often hundreds of miles from the mainland, these isolated island vacation spots offer unspoilt natural beauty and incredible biodiversity. Whether you’re snorkelling with sea turtles in Indonesia or hanging out with giant tortoises in the Galápagos Islands, Culture Trip’s small-group remote vacations will fully immerse you in blissfully peaceful, unspoilt nature.

Atlantic Azores

Bottle-green crater lakes, sprawling fields of blue hydrangeas and steaming volcanic hot springs: you’ve made it to the Azores. Far out in the Atlantic Ocean, this string of Portuguese islands might lack the gorgeous sandy beaches of other isolated vacation spots, but they more than make up for it with their abundance of thrill-seeking activities. Get your adrenaline pumping on this six-day trip, where you’ll rappel down rushing waterfalls, kayak across shimmering lakes and hike through subtropical forests. Plus, you’ll learn how to make cozido – a traditional Azorean stew cooked underground, using only geothermal energy.

Tropical sea with turquoise water and trees. Gili Trawangan, Indonesia

Blissful Bali

A holiday in Bali is the ultimate tropical escape as it is, but this 12-day itinerary takes it to the next level as we spend three nights on the tiny island of Gili Trawangan, part of the Gili Islands between Bali and Lombok. We’ll hop on a speedboat to get there and spend our time fully immersing in the serene joys of tropical island life. Snorkel with sea turtles, discover the eery life-sized underwater statues near Gili Meno and spend sunset barbecuing and sipping cocktails on the beach. You’ll have loads of free time during your time here, so you can enjoy the luxury of our island resort with yoga sessions and massage treatment, chill by the pool or hit the beach. Gili Trawangan is so small that you can actually walk around the entire coastline in just a few hours. – that’s the best way to discover the island’s most amazing hidden beaches.
