Christmas done differently

The festive season is almost upon us and it really is the most wonderful time of year. A break from work. Catching up with friends and family. Eating delicious food. Giving and receiving gifts. What’s not to love?

The idea of Christmas fills some with a warm glow of nostalgia, but for others, a looming sense of dread. The overspending. The overindulging. The stress of it all. If you fall into the latter category, it’s time to put down your holiday planner and consider an alternative way to spend Christmas with your loved ones.

Get away from it all this Christmas

While the country gets caught up in the silly season: filling up shopping carts on and offline, and making yet another plan to have drinks with friends and colleagues, you could be taking a leisurely stroll through ancient rainforest. Silent except for the reverberating sound of singing cicadas and tropical birds. There’s nothing like being immersed in the green haze of nature to help you shake off the remnants of yet another hard worked year.

Tidings of comfort and joy

Let our travel experts take care of everything. Wake up gently as soft golden light envelops your luxury room. Stretch your arms and roll over for a snooze - you’ve got time, you’re not doing the cooking today. As you make your way to the dining room to eat a chef-prepared breakfast, enjoy a coffee and peruse the paper. We’ll let you know when it’s time to go.

Hop in an air-conditioned vehicle for the perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. We’ll take the scenic routes. In between cultural and culinary activities, we’ll meander to breathtaking viewpoints over valleys and coastal dreamscapes. It’s time to let go, relax, the Inspiring Journey’s team are the ones taking care of you.
