Work your way around the world with these bucket-list ideas from the Lightfoot Travel Designers
01
See The Real Amazon

Leave the tourists behind and take a private yacht down the Tapajos River. Here you can still enjoy a true off-the-beaten-track adventure. Discover cerulean water, white-sand beaches, and quiet coves in what Jacques Cousteau called the Caribbean of the Amazon. Go there now, before the rest of the world discovers it.

02
Ride With Guachos In Patagonia

Head to Estancia Huechahue in the foothills of the Andes to learn how to become a gaucho. You can spend the day working cattle with the gauchos and trying your hand with a lasso. And you can also ride out with them across the landscape to discover the land they call home. Keen riders can also choose to sign up for a 10-day ride across the Andes from Chile to Argentina, camping and staying in estancias along the way.

03
Charter A Yacht To Antarctica

You could float around on a yacht in the Med or you could charter a yacht for Antarctica. Lightfoot Travel can arrange for you to take your own bespoke yacht to the White Continent. Your expedition yacht can plough through the ice while you relax in your private sauna. Then once you arrive, the crew can drop one of two Zodiac inflatable boats into the water so that you can get a closer look at the wildlife without having someone else’s camera lens obstructing your view.

04
Experience Zero Gravity In Florida

If you've always had a hankering to be an astronaut this is for you. Join instructors from the Zero Gravity Corporation on a zero-gravity flight near Arlington in Florida. After pulling two Gs above the clouds, the pilot will switch off the thrust, giving you the chance to experience weightlessness.

05
Join A Llama Caravan In Chile

Follow in the footsteps of the ancient people of the Atacama by joining an Ancestral Caravan tour. You will join indigenous people as they take their llamas across the desert, hike through colorful ravines, and tell you more about their culture along the way.
