boats and trains .

In a world where travellers must be mindful of their carbon footprint, The Insider will always advise you when there is a way to cut flights and car journeys down. Thankfully, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to luxury travel by water or rail and we are constantly researching ways to keep carbon emissions to a minimum whilst getting the very best out of your adventure.


If you have a group of ten to twelve people and about ten days to spare, we have the perfect boat that will take you to remote and beautiful corners of Indonesia. From the pristine coral reefs of Raja Ampat to undiscovered frontiers that few travellers have ever visited, you can explore from the peace and privacy of your own traditional sailboat crewed by a local team who know these waters better than anyone.



One of the best ways to explore the Amazon is by boat. By navigating the tributaries of this mighty river, you can delve deeper into the extraordinary ecosystems of the rainforest. We hand-pick the two or three boats we work with and choose them for the skill and expertise of the crew and naturalist guides as well as the comfort on board. There are also some wonderful train rides to be had in the Andes including a luxury sleeper train that connects Lake Titicaca to Cusco (the gateway to Machu Picchu) and onwards to Arequipa.



The magical train ride that weaves its way through the highlands of Scotland is among the most beautiful in Britain. You can enjoy visits to some of the country’s ancient castles, views of crystal-clear lochs and walks in craggy mountains. Connect this with a cruise to the remote Hebridean islands scattered off the west coast and you have a rare chance to see some of the undiscovered corners of the United Kingdom without losing an ounce of comfort.
