If your idea of an awesome vacation involves being active in the great outdoors and basking in nature, you’re in good company.
There’s plenty of natural immersion and outdoor pursuits to enjoy even without leaving Southeast Asia. Venture further afield and the allure of glamping, gardens, mountain peaks, waterfalls, volcanoes and fjords, spring blossoms and autumn foliage, ski resorts, sand dunes and incredible natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights will leave you wanting more. Hokkaido in Japan, Iceland and Patagonia are some of the Quotient community’s all-time favourites, while remote places such as the Faroe Islands and Greenland are less traversed but equally treasured.
Quotient’s holidays focused on the great outdoors are journeys around incredible nature wonderlands, such as Antarctica, but they don’t just stop there. The itineraries also go beyond what you see and do in the open-air environs; people, traditions and livelihoods have been and continue to be shaped by the landscape – it’s the joy of appreciating this cultural canvas that makes your new era of explorations extraordinary.
Embark on a discovery of the UNESCO World Heritage Honghe Hani Rice Terraces in Yunnan, China, where idyllic red rice terraces cascade down the mountainous slopes. You’ll not only marvel at the spectacular settings but also feel the heartbeat of the minority people.
Closer to home, escape to Langkawi UNESCO Global Geopark for a dose of forest bathing and wildlife watching. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea from your luxury resort villa and experience the fast-disappearing indigenous art of fishing.
