Marvel at the soaring mountains and massive glaciers of Alaska as we sail from Anchorage, Alaska to Vancouver, British Columbia. This cruise is the perfect add-on to our Alaska Land Adventure.
Few of nature’s marvels match the intense aliveness of an Arctic summer. In a region that's frozen, still and dark for much of the year, the Northland awakens with a burst of energy during these long days when the tundra turns green, wildflowers appear, animals come forth in great flocks and herds, and belugas return for their summer feasting. More than 3,000 of these amiable white whales congregate at the mouth of the Churchill River, and the motorized rafts and kayaks put us at eye level with these often-curious cetaceans.
Mindfulness in Mexico – Flowers, Art & Architecture
Think you’ve been to Mexico if you’ve been to Cabo, Cancun or Puerto Vallarta? Wrong. The real Mexico is more hidden; it’s not found on a popular beach or in a high-rise tourist-flooded hotel zone. Mexico is like a lot of shy but brilliant people. She holds onto her secrets, only revealing them when you spend the time to get to know her. Experience both the spiritual, the sensual and the mystical found in the “real Mexico” as we begin our escape enhanced by the gentle guiding hand of a famous floral designer. What better way to delay the craziness and over-wrought aspect of the holidays than to take a week for yourself surrounded by beauty, design and blossoms. In late November / early December, Mexico is awash in blooms and greenery in the Valle de Bravo and Tepozetlan areas, two resort towns within a short drive of Mexico City. We’ll wind up our adventure in majestic Mexico City, where we’ll focus on great art, architecture and stellar gourmet food.
With a population of more than 20 million people, Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world. Only in recent years, travelers have been making their way to the Mexican capital to find themselves pleasantly surprised with everything this metropolis has to offer.
300 miles southeast of Mexico City lies the enchanting city of Oaxaca (pronounced “wa-ha-ka”). Sitting in a verdant valley with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, this area has been prized since 500BC. To this day, the state of Oaxaca (of which Oaxaca city is the capital) is the most ethnically diverse state in Mexico, home to 16 of the country’s 56 indigenous groups. Oaxaca’s ethnic diversity is the foundation for its rich culinary and cultural traditions. Oaxaca must be taken in slowly and attentively to understand and appreciate its many layers. During our 7-day, 6-night, luxury women’s trip, we will venture into the heart of Oaxacan culture in a way only locals know how.
The Big Bend region of Texas is untouched, under-touristed, and just a little bit funky.

You will experience the eclectic style of West Texas people, nature, and history
