These combinations are our matches made in heaven. Two destinations merged into one divine incentive program.
Edinburgh & The Highlands
Scotland beckons—with ancient castles, soul-stirring Highland vistas, and mysterious lochs. Inverness is considered the capital of the Highlands and nearby is the Culloden Battlefield with its haunting clan stones. The enormous freshwater Loch Ness, famed for its legendary monster, "Nessie," also awaits.
Edinburgh's imperious castle looms over the Old Town. It houses the Scottish Crown Jewels, and sits at the head of the Royal Mile, which stretches down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence in Scotland. The Royal Mile is lined with cobblestone lanes, boutiques, and restaurants in 400-year-old buildings. The New Town is a little piece of 18th-century elegance.
New Zealand North & South Islands
North Island: Set between two harbors and dotted with 48 extinct volcanic cones, Auckland is a blend of urban attractions, beaches, water adventure, and geothermal wonders. Board a ferry and cruise the Hauraki Gulf to Waiheke, the Island of Wine or to Rangitoto, a black lava volcanic island. Be introduced to the Maori culture and join an eco-safari in search of Bryde’s whales, bottlenose dolphins, and orcas.
