Who said you can’t live out the adventures of your favorite fictional trailblazers? Exploration is inherent to human nature, so characters like Don Quixote, Phileas Fogg and Bilbo Baggins only fuel our deepest desires to venture into uncharted territory. The time has come to depart from the page and embark on your own adventure. Imagine snorkelling to shipwrecks, peering down the cone of a volcano, or swimming with wild island pigs. These expeditions – all bookable with Culture Trip – will have you feeling like a modern-day Indiana Jones.
1 . Exumas, the Bahamas – by Dream Yacht Charter

Ready to get wild in the Bahamas? Hop aboard and feel like the explorers of yesterday during unique wildlife encounters. Swim with furry pigs on Big Major Cay and tip your hat to the Allen Cay rock iguanas – found only in the Bahamas. Feeling wild enough to source your own dinner? Try spearfishing on Norman’s Cay. Prefer a bit of glamour as you globetrot? Then pretend you’re 007 while snorkelling in Thunderball Grotto.

2 . The Grenadines – by Dream Yacht Charter

The explorers of publications past wish that they sailed the Sea of the Antilles the way you will during this dreamy yacht trip around the Grenadines. Sure, perhaps they also swam with sea turtles in the Tobago Cays or bathed in the geothermal waters created by Saint Lucia’s La Soufrière volcano, but they didn’t do so on a lavish catamaran sipping sundowners. This laid-back eight-day voyage trades swabbing the deck for slathering yourself in sunscreen – all while your captain leads you through the Caribbean’s crystal-clear waters.

3 . Bora Bora, French Polynesia – by Dream Yacht Charter

Something between a luxe celeb experience and a pirate’s life awaits you on this eight-day Polynesia adventure. Cruise on a catamaran through this spectacular archipelago, spending more time worried about keeping your glass full than keeping your sails steady. When you’re not busy tanning on Huahine’s beaches, jump in for a swim alongside blacktip reef sharks in the Bora Bora lagoon and marvel at black pearls plucked straight from their coral gardens.

Oh, to be so intrepid as to explore 10 volcanic islands without breaking a sweat. Eight days are yours to cruise the Cape Verde islands, pretending you’re a Portuguese sailor circa 1450. Not only will you spot the same volcano peaks and lush landscapes that they did, you’ll also see history preserved in the old capital of Cidade Velha. Sail to a new island every day, gazing in wonder at isolated villages and bustling cities.

5 . Best of Antarctica – by Intrepid Travel

Sailing to Antarctica is the ultimate way to prove that a picture is worth a thousand words, because mere letters strung together cannot come close to capturing the experience. A full 11 days at sea will take you through the Beagle Channel and the Drake Passage, admiring the orcas and dolphins swimming alongside your ship. The raw beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula will leave your heart stopped and your breath short, as leopard seals, penguins and whales go about their day, wondering what you’re all gaping at.
