The Polar Regions
A Land of Ice and Fire
Home to geysers, volcanoes, geothermal lagoons, spectacular waterfalls and breathtaking scenery, Europe’s most sparsely populated country is an awe-inspiring destination, particularly for adventure lovers or nature enthusiasts alike.
We can suggest the best places to stay, from luxury lodges to private houses, and arrange a wonderful trip for you here. We will also design unforgettable experiences, such as securing private access to a stunning ice cave, where you will feast on delicious food prepared by your own chef and sip Brennivin, Iceland’s signature spirit, from ice glasses.
For winter adventures, such as glacier walking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and witnessing the magical Northern Lights, we recommend travelling between November and March. Between June and August is the best time for exploring Reykjavík, hiking, horse riding or visiting volcanoes, geothermal pools and lava tunnels.
Getting it Right Every Time
Your Destination Expert will build a relationship with you and a nuanced understanding of what you want from your holiday.
CREATING AN ITINERARY
Once we know you, we can match our years of specialist knowledge to you and begin designing your extraordinary trip.
We will continue refining your itinerary adding in those special touches and leaving no stone unturned to make sure that every day is spectacular.
From the moment you leave home, we will be on hand to ensure a totally seamless experience.
We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.
