Perhaps, you can’t spend more than a week away from work or home, but want a great authentic wildlife experience.   And, you want an unrushed, relaxing tour so you can feel refreshed when you return home.  No problem!  Now, with new and shorter itineraries, you can still enjoy the best quality yachts, accommodations, and guides.  And, you can select an itinerary that is perfect for you, whether you are traveling alone, or with your Family, or if you are looking for that special romantic getaway.

Did you know that you are less than a four hour flight from Miami to Quito, the gateway to the Galapagos and to Napo, one of the best Amazon Rainforest Lodges in South America.  And, you are only a bit more than five hours to the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest.

In Ecuador, you can enjoy a great sampling of the Enchanted Galapagos Islands on 4, 5 or 6 day cruises.  Or, you may prefer to experience the Amazon Rainforest for three or four nights, viewing sea otters, caiman, monkeys, sloths, exotic birds and beautiful flora.  And if you have time, you can also have a great tour of the Colonial capital, Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Center.

Perhaps, you have always dreamt of visiting the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest.  Now you can make this dream come true on a comfortable authentic 4 night/5 day River Boat Cruise, out of Manaus, Brazil.  Here you will have the opportunity for daily land excursions and you will also have the opportunity to visit a boat building village.  And, if you have extra time, you can also enjoy a day tour of Manaus, the city made famous by the Rubber Barons in the 1800s.

Finally, for a really unique experience, you can see Polar Bears in Churchill Canada, the Polar Bear Capitol of the World.  All our tours include the famous and original Tundra Buggies which meander through the Manitoba Wilderness Area along the banks of the Hudson Bay.  You can choose from a short four day trip, with two full days on the Tundra.

All these mini Trips of a Lifetime allow you to have a wonderful wildlife experience in less than one week.
