Plan a Valentine’s Escape

Give Now Travel Later - Give The Gift Of Travel with Ker & Downey

Norway | Need a reason to get extra close? Ensure there will be plenty of snuggling on an arctic safari in Norway. February sees the region at the height of its arctic environment and the magic Northern Lights are best seen during February too.

Myanmar | A February trip to Myanmar beats the monsoon season, and the curated experiences designed by Ker & Downey offer plenty of romance. Cozy up on a private horse-and-buggy ride, enjoy a private river cruise next to gilded temples, and share a kiss in a hot air balloon high above the landscape.

Best Bets for Spring Break

Mexico | Forget the Spring Break of your youth: from the cities to the coast Mexico has plenty of sophisticated experiences to offer… of course, there’s always tequila harvesting too. Try a trip south of the border for cultural depth close to the United States.

Morocco | If you want a rich experience that gets you a little farther away for Spring Break, consider Morocco. In just seven days it’s possible to pack in a lot. See the ruins and the oases on the edge of the Sahara, sleep out under the stars in a Berber tent, attend private tea tastings and Henna parties, and take a horseback ride along a coastal fort.

Zambia | The height of summer is an ideal time to safari in Zambia, and our Zambia Family Safari suggested journey is designed with safari-goers of every age in mind. Private accommodations and flexible schedules add extra exclusivity to a place that is already one of Africa’s least crowded safari destinations.

Croatia | In June, Croatia’s islands get extra festive. Switch up the usual European summer vacation and go for local festivals, history, and culture on the Dalmatian Coast. We think it’s best explored by private yacht, a great option for families.
