In Costa Rica, a stay at Amor Arenal, located at the foothills of Arenal Volcano, on the edge of a virgin forest canyon, will rejuvenate – with hot springs and a yoga platform overlooking the canyon and a meditation platform floating among the trees.

Discover Alaska

Fully escorted by Scenic Tour Directors, every cruise offers guests the chance to experience remote areas of natural beauty not normally accessible to tourists. Beverages, meals, shore excursions, naturalist guides and activities are included in each cruise. 

The Centrepiece of Alaska – Denali National Park 

Surrounded by mountains, glaciers, wild rivers, boreal forest and Arctic tundra, perpetually snowcapped Denali National Park was established to protect the wilderness. Nothing more alluring than what is found in the shadow of North America’s highest peak – the 6,190m Denali – the focus of our specially curated land journey, Wilds of Alaska.  

Alaskan Discovery

A tiny hamlet in the Mat-Su Valley, Talkeetna is home to incredible nature adventures and one of perfect places to view the spectacular Denali. It retains its early Alaska feel, with log cabins, historic buildings, colourful locals and wild west storefronts. Here you will soar into the heart of Denali National Park and fly among some of the most beautiful and rugged mountain landscapes in the world, watching for moose, black bears, Dall sheep and mountain goats, landing high on a glacier for a treasured walk

Alaskan Huskies

No Alaskan journey would be complete without dog sledding and few ‘mushers’ would be more qualified to show you the ‘ropes’ than Iditarod champion and kennel owner Vern Halter. The Iditarod is the world’s most renowned sled dog race run over a distance of 1,510km from Anchorage to Nome and Vern is a consistent top 10 finisher. Delight in an exhilarating ATV sled ride pulled by Vern’s dogs before visiting the kennel to tussle with lively puppies.

Whether it’s wildlife, wilderness, Native American culture, adrenalin-inducing whitewater or the overwhelming scale and glory of Denali, one week’s journey into the heart of Alaska will recharge your spirit and feed your soul.

Discover Canada

Western Canada’s raw and unbridled beauty will stop you in your tracks – whether you’ve been entranced by tales of grizzly bears or are in awe of Canada’s immense mountains, glaciers and crystalline lakes. 

Awe Inspiring Landscapes 

From the great Rocky Mountains to glacial lakes that shimmer in magical shades of blue, from picture perfect alpine resorts to charming harbour cities, this corner of Canada is an expansive wonderland that’s as varied as it is magnificent. 

An Unforgettable Rail Journey

Discover Central America

Exquisite natural wonders

Costa Rica offers a host of nature-based experiences and incredible biodiversity. Her rugged heart is found amongst its national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and serene coastal beaches. A true nature lover’s paradise and home to howling monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds, colourful frogs and leatherback turtles, more than 25 percent of Costa Rica is protected in national parks and reserves. With a rich history, multi-faceted vibrant cultures and exquisite natural beauty, there’s plenty to appreciate about this unique country

Arenal Volcano National Park

Surrounded by rich rainforest, diverse wildlife, coffee plantations and old lava fields, Arenal Volcano National Park lies on the border of Lake Arenal with the conical peak of the volcano at its core. Here you will hike, take a dip in thermal hot-springs, rappel through forest canopies, meet local farmers, or simply watch in wonder at the volcano from the poolside. Despite its remoteness, Arenal is the perfect retreat for outdoor enthusiasts, or those yearning for a little wild solitude with the natural world.

Discover Peru

Epic mountains, sacred valleys and vast stretches of water are explored across these wonderful land journeys. Explore the World Heritage-listed sites of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley in Peru, set amongst the spectacular Andes Mountains. And finally, experience the rich culture and gastronomy of Peru, from savouring local specialities to indulging in dégustation dinners and Michelin star restaurants, discover a wonderful new world of Peruvian flavours

The mighty Incas – Machu Picchu & Sacred Valley

Machu Picchu is a site that invokes awe and reverence. Standing 2,430 metres above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, its giant walls and terraces seem as if they have been cut naturally in the mighty rock escarpments. Your journey through the Sacred Valley, Peru is sure to fascinate. From the stunning patchwork landscape dotted with villages and ruins, to the vibrant markets with locals in customary dress and their wares on display, and imposing World Heritagelisted Incan sites, you’ll be enchanted during your time here. These remnants of the mighty Incan Empire are yours to explore. 

The Amazon & Galápagos Islands

This region is a kaleidoscope of colours and diversity. With extraordinary cultural and environmental significance, it's a true wonder of the world. Discovering the Amazon is a joy from start to finish. There are few untouched paradises left on Earth, and the astonishing Galápagos Islands is undoubtedly one of them. Alone in the Pacific Ocean, this volcanic archipelago has benefited from its isolated location over centuries of evolution, with some of the most unique and special species calling it home.

The Amazon

Explore remote Amazonian tributaries via skiffs and kayaks, spot monkeys and other rare creatures, and let our expert naturalist guides introduce you to the wonders of the jungle. It's also the ancestral home of one million Indigenous peoples, and during your time with Scenic you’ll have the opportunity to visit some of these villages. The sheer number and diversity of flora and fauna to be found in the world’s largest tropical rainforest is quite simply astounding. From the rarest of orchids to the playful Pink Amazon dolphin, it is one of the greatest thrills on Earth to witness all these extraordinary creatures and plants in their natural habitat.

The Galápagos Islands

This incredible and rare ecosystem played an inestimable role in the development of Charles Darwin’s ground-breaking study ‘Origin of the Species’ and subsequent Theory of Evolution in 1859. With many of the same species that inspired him still surviving on the  Galápagos Islands, you’ll have the chance to witness ‘survival of the fittest’ in the flesh. See incredible species such as Blue footed boobies, fur seals, lava lizards, flamingos, rays, albatross and the endangered Galápagos giant tortoise.
