Antarctica

Far away in a remote continent, an unforgettable journey awaits to be discovered. Offering an unparalleled opportunity to explore the world’s last great wilderness. This majestic spot is home to glaciers, icebergs and an array of incredible wildlife.

Picture yourself cruising through the frozen waterways. Taking in the fascinating scenery and watching the “locals” in their natural habitat—from colonies of penguins (even the elusive Emperors) to seals and whales—. Pass by the South Shetland Islands. A chain of islands located just off the Antarctic Peninsula. There, you can enjoy these extreme virgin landscapes. Now, if you want to step out the yacht for a while and soak up the wild atmosphere, you can visit research stations. And, of course, practice kayaking and other water sports, including swimming inside the icy waters of an active volcano.

Too much excitement? Then, it’s time to chill in the hot tub on the deck of your superyacht and raise a glass while surrounded by the amazing beauty of this isolated corner of the world. Appreciating this unique combination of luxury, adventure and natural beauty that cannot be found anywhere else on this planet. Cheers to that…

Galapagos Islands

Exciting and exotic as it sounds, this wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site couldn’t be left out of this superyacht adventure ranking. Why? The Galapagos islands are home to fascinating and varied wildlife. With its crystal-clear waters, cinematographic landscapes and exceptional biodiversity, it offers a plethora of experiences that are ideal to enjoy while yachting.

One of the most exclusive activities in the Galapagos Islands is (get ready): diving with whale sharks, the gentle giants of the sea. These magnificent creatures, known for their calm and curious nature, can grow up to 40 feet long and are the perfect match for a once-in-a-lifetime underwater date.

The Galapagos is one of the few places in the world where they can be seen year-round, making it an ideal destination for divers of all skill levels. Discover the pristine beaches of Las Bachas. A secluded paradise that can only be accessed by boat where you can swim, snorkel, or simply relax while admiring the extraordinary views. For nature lovers, a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station is a must. Dedicated to the preservation of the unique species that call the Galapagos home—including the famous giant tortoise—this institution is all about the history and ecology of the islands.

There, you can witness the vital conservation work that is being done to protect its fragile ecosystem.

And, of course, the marvellous Bartolome Island deserves a visit. This volcanic wonderland offers the best views in the entire archipelago, including the iconic Pinnacle Rock. Take a hike up the island’s steep slopes and enjoy the show in front of your eyes! Whether you’re seeking a superyacht adventure, relaxation, or a deeper appreciation for the wonders of nature, the Galapagos have it all.

The Norwegian Fjords

Boasting dramatic and inspiring landscapes, the Norwegian Fjords have some of the most spectacular scenery you’ll ever see. With more than 1000 fjords around the country, from towering mountains to cascading waterfalls, they are a feast for the senses… And an open invitation for those who enjoy hiking, climbing or kayaking.

And for those who are not that extreme sport enthusiasts (especially on vacation): the Norwegian Fjords count with some of the world’s most charming ports of call. From the beautiful village of Flåm to the bustling city of Bergen, there’s plenty of spots to dock your yacht and explore on land. Now, if you’re looking for a truly exclusive experience, you can visit Geirangerfjord. This UNESCO World Heritage site is only accessible by water. Ideal to appreciate the natural beauty of the fjord up close, while enjoying the utmost privacy.

Coming back to the “sporty” highlights, from a leisurely hike through the mountains to go fishing for salmon in one of its bursting streams, there’s something for everyone in this idyllic destination. No wonder why it is becoming a favourite spot among the most discerning yachting experts.

The Great Barrier Reef

Now, it’s time to go to Australia, to visit one of the most majestic natural wonders of the world. Located off the coast of Queensland, The Great Barrier honours its name by hosting THE LARGEST REEF CORAL SYSTEM IN THE WORLD. Does snorkeling, diving and exploring the psychedelically colourful coral reefs sound like a good plan? We think so.

On the other hand of the hypnotic beauty of these natural formations, which are full of life and movement, there’s this huge quietness and absolute privacy that also stand as some of the reasons to visit. The Great Barrier Reef is dotted with many secluded & lush, tiny islands. Ideal to anchor with no one around, wherever you look. Just you and nature. What a feeling.
For those who don’t rest until they find the unbeatable view, there’s always the chance of a helicopter tour. Flying around these incredible landscapes can only be compared to falling in love… Except this time, you rise in it.

The Maldives

Concluding with the most unique and special destinations to visit by yacht, The Maldives fairly won its place for its undeniable and uncomparable beauty. And for all the great attractions and activities to enjoy at a professional level.

These paradisiac islands—surrounded by some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world—are just perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. Swimming with whale sharks and diving with manta rays at the Hanifaru Bay can be a great plan for those who are always looking for some action. Among the water sports: jet skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, kayaking, fishing… You name it. Taking a sunset cruise on a traditional Maldivian boat is also a moment to remember forever. And for those who would rather chill—whether at the deck of the yacht or at some of the best resorts in the world—there are plenty of spa treatments and fine dining experiences to leave the world behind.
