Pelorus Experiences Highlight the
Luxury of Silence
Remote Yachting, Silent Safaris, and Mindful Moments Abroad
Austin, Texas (February 11, 2023): Travelers want authentic experiences that allow them to stay longer, explore deeper, and make more meaningful connections. Silence has become the ultimate luxury. One of the biggest travel trends of 2023 will be off-the-grid vacations. Whether flying to a phone-free wellness retreat or enjoying the serenity of nature on a camping or glamping weekend, spending distraction-free time with loved ones will be a high priority for many travelers in the year ahead. As travelers continue to explore the world in a more thoughtful way and slow trips down, Pelorus can design exclusive travel or yachting experiences that will take people far from the crowds of tourists and immerse them in the true heart of a country.
Safari in Silence in Africa
Awaken to the jungle’s call or the sounds of the bush. If it’s seclusion one is looking for, then Africa’s wetlands, rainforests, and savannahs are where to go. Privacy and space to roam are plentiful, as is the wildlife. Picture a luxurious camp on a private island within Botswana’s Jao Reserve, sunrise safari drives through the African bush, and intimate wildlife encounters in some of the densest big-game areas. Discover safari in a new way with a stay at a waterfront camp floating down the mighty Okavango Delta via mokoro (traditional canoe) for a slow, silent safari close to nature. Or, cover some ground in an electric vehicle to catch a glimpse of the Big Five. However one chooses to explore, travelers can enjoy an authentic, enriching offering while leaving little impact.
Uncover the Secrets of the Ocean Floor by Submersible
There aren’t many parts of the planet that still hold as much mystery as the deep sea. Usually reserved for marine researchers, documentary camera crews, and scientists, guests can access the secrets of the ocean floor as one journeys underwater in the comfort and safety of a state-of-the-art submersible. Discover a silent and eerie world beneath the waves, close to historic wrecks on the ocean floor that have seldom, if ever, been visited by divers. The submersible offers 360-degree access through surrounding glass windows where guests can venture into a universe of fascinating coral life in subtropical waters or dive into the icy waters below in Antarctica.
Extraordinary Nordic Adventures
The Nordic countries are majestic and ethereal, immersed in an otherworldly beauty that’s unlike anywhere else on Earth. Discover Sweden, whose landscape is peppered with thousands of lakes, freshwater streams, and snow-capped mountains, making for an incredible wildlife-watching destination. For adrenaline junkies, Norway offers completely unique adventures. Ski from sky to sea over untouched pistes with panoramic views over the Norwegian fjords. Become enchanted by this scenery as one plots their own voyage of discovery. Drive in electric supercars, and explore these pristine mountain passes, sea-spanning bridges, and intricate web of tunnels for emission-free exploration.
Soar to the North Pole or beyond with OceanSky Cruises
Airships were first invented back in the early twentieth century, but they’re back—bigger and better than ever, and one of the most innovative, clean-tech ways to see the world. Join Pelorus in partnership with the ‘Airline of Airships’, OceanSky Cruises, in a sustainable land, sea, and air experience like no other. Glide effortlessly 1000 ft above the ground in a floating hotel that is comparable to a luxury yacht. With Michelin star fine dining and 360-degree panoramic viewing areas, gain an entirely new perspective as one sails over some of the world’s most spectacular regions. Land at the North Pole and disembark for more Pelorus action at the world’s northernmost point, where few have gone before.
Discover Spiritual & Cultural Connections in Australia’s Outback
There is no better place to immerse oneself in silence than in the beating spiritual heart of Australia’s Red Centre, Uluru. Home to the iconic 550 million-year-old Uluru Rock, this remote region of northern Australia and ancient desert land has also been the sacred site of the indigenous Anangu tribe for at least 30,000 years. Discover extraordinary geological formations and fish in untouched waters at Sweets Lagoon before watching the sun cast changing colors against Uluru Rock as one dines in a secluded alcove among the dunes at sunset. Wake up in the morning to extraordinary views over the landscape from the ultra-luxurious Longitude 131.
Sail to the ends of the Earth in Antarctica
Voyage to the southernmost point on Earth by luxury yacht to the seventh continent. This desolate expanse with 24-hour daylight boasts unparalleled scenery, with the chance to see it all from the comfort of a private vessel. From heli-skiing remote areas on untouched terrain to participating in conservation and scientific research, ice climbing some of the oldest glaciers in the world, or kayaking through the icy waters, there is a wealth of activity for every type of guest.
Unplug and unwind: luxury camps in incredible locations
For the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, a private camp in the middle of nowhere offers something that no hotel, lodge, or chalet can match. Just because these camps are off-the-beaten-track doesn’t mean one needs to sacrifice on comfort or luxury. Opt for a bohemian canvas tent under the stars in Oman or an authentic experience in Africa complete with a white tablecloth supper and private chef, or a brand-new space-inspired pod in the middle of Antarctica, and rest assured one won’t be disturbed. What makes these camps particularly special is their location in off-grid locations, far from any artificial noise, light pollution, and – most importantly – people.
Mindful Moments in Asia
There’s a kind of mysticism that surrounds the Himalayas, where ancient traditions and modern life collide for a destination promoting wellness, happiness, and relaxation. Crossing five countries – Bhutan, India, Nepal, China, and Pakistan – these mountainous folds are home to incredible properties where serenity and simplicity meet luxury. Embrace the local religion, Buddhism, as one meanders along untouched paths and bask in this incredible scenery on hikes to sacred temples and monasteries high up in the mountains. Enjoy the simplicity of the local cultures and connect to the heart of this intriguing land – and to oneself.
Catch world-class waves in a foiling adventure
Surf lovers will jump at the chance to hit uncrowded waves in a unique tow foiling expedition. Get out into the ocean and listen only to the powerful swirl of the water as one delights in quality line-ups scattered across a vast array of reefs, point breaks, and secluded bays. Pelorus has partnered up with Foil-X to offer one-of-a-kind foil surfing adventures across the world. Recommended is the Maldives for brilliant waves combined with pristine beaches and balmy turquoise seas, but travelers can also opt for Indonesia, Alaska, South Brazil, Morocco, Ireland, and more.
Sail Indonesia’s archipelago aboard a traditional yacht
Boasting tens of thousands of verdant green islands surrounded by azure waters, Indonesia is a paradise for those looking to escape into the silence of the natural world. Pelorus are experts in Indonesia (co-founder Geordie and Yacht Expedition Designer Venetia have traveled there extensively) – and believe the best way to discover the rich marine and terrestrial biodiversity of Komodo National Park or the powder-white beaches of Raja Ampat is by yacht. Charter a traditional Phinisi yacht such as LAMIMA or DUNIA BARU, handcrafted using centuries-old methods and complete with all the luxury expected, as well as boasting an attentive and truly hospitable crew. Spend days snorkeling and diving with manta rays before paddle boarding to the shore to encounter the world-famous Komodo dragons, or trek deep into the forest with an expert guide.
