Unique and Unusual Holidays

The world has countless secret spots and unique travel adventures just waiting to be discovered. Our Travel Designers can whisk you to less-travelled and remote destinations for a holiday that’s luxurious, exciting, and a little out of the ordinary.

Journey to Mongolia to experience nomadic culture and travel through vast, untouched landscapes. Stay in a traditional cosy ger tented camp with a local Nomadic family, spot Asiatic red deer, wild horses and gazelle at Khustain National Park, or feel like you’ve landed on another planet as you explore the iconic sand dunes, ice canyon and stunning mountain vistas of the Gobi Desert.

Antarctica is the ultimate adventure for the daring explorer. Explore its untamed frozen landscapes and encounter some of the world’s rarest wildlife. Spend a night camping on the ice, be guided by naturalists, scientists and researchers, and gain a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges facing this region, as well as the steps we can take to preserve its legacy for generations to come.

Venture into the jungles of Papua New Guinea. Cruise rainforest fringed rivers, fly over a volcano or even trek the historic wartime Kokoda trail - 96 life-changing kilometres that require courage and tenacity.

In Ethiopia, you can witness the ancient customs and traditions of the hill tribes, hike the Simien or Bale mountains, trek through dry desert land or skirt high plateaus, and visit the breathtaking rock-hewn churches of Lalibela.

Lightfoot Travel can also arrange unforgettable unique family holidays in the Galapagos and Bhutan.
