Luxury wildlife holidays with A&K

Our luxury wildlife holidays whisk you away to some of the most dramatic landscapes on Earth, where you’ll see nature at its most captivating. Explore the jungles of Costa Rica, the forests of India, the Arctic tundra and the Canadian wilderness, with A&K experts and guides leading the way.

We can help you follow in Charles Darwin’s famous footsteps during one of our luxury Galápagos cruises. Navigate between volcanic islands aboard an expedition-grade vessel, snorkel beside curious sea lion, and watch giant tortoise strolling along the coast.

Or answer the call of the wild with an A&K escape to British Columbia, where the annual salmon run draws hungry grizzly bears out into the open. We’ll ensure you’re in best spot to see these formidable creatures.

If it’s a challenge you’re after, the wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctica always deliver. These inhospitable destinations on the tip and toe of the planet host a surprising abundance of wildlife. Our Arctic cruises take you to “The Land of the Midnight Sun”, where you can spot wolf packs on the hunt, darting Arctic fox and whale breaching the icy waters. Or ply the same course as Shackleton on one of our Antarctic cruises, where you’ll encounter huddled colonies of penguin, sea birds soaring overhead and orca pursuing elephant seal.

A&K has spent more than half a century crafting tailor-made wildlife holidays for our clients, and our network and know-how is unmatched. Whichever wild corner of the world is your dream destination, it would be our pleasure to take you there.
