Southern Italy and Sicily with Apulia and the Amalfi Coast

Delight in a special exploration of Italy’s southern climes, from striking Sicily and the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to unheralded Apulia, the alluring “boot heel” of Italy, where a vivid history, unique architecture, and bountiful plains join the sun and sea in creating a prized (and crowd-free) region. Add Italian hospitality, outstanding cuisine, and notable lodgings for la dolce vita, small-group style.

Exploring Iceland

May 25–June 4, 2023

It’s a surprising, even astonishing land; one of massive glaciers and rumbling volcanoes, bubbling mud holes and powerful waterfalls; hugely abundant birdlife. It’s also perfect for exploring in a small group, as you discover traveling the breadth of the country and getting an up-close view of this natural “wonderland.” Led by UCSC associate professor and geologist Terry Blackburn.

Pearls of Dalmatia with Dubrovnik and the Island of Hvar

September 2–16, 2023

Independent, democratic Croatia welcomes visitors eager to absorb its remarkable history and culture—and its beautiful and unspoiled Dalmatian coastline. As the small group travels from historic Zagreb and beautiful Lake Bled to the Habsburg resort of Opatija, the island of Hvar, and beloved Dubrovnik, we see why this cherished region lays such a claim on the hearts of all who visit.
