Adventure Travel

Experience off-the-beaten path adventures — by land and sea. Here are a few of the amazing experiences you can enjoy through membership.

Members with Executive, Presidential or Chairman's Club status can choose from a number of small-group adventures on the water that are far from the typical notion of "cruising" — with excursions, expert naturalist guides and much more. Traverse the Amazon River, get an up-close view of polar bears in Norway, experience the fabled Galápagos Islands or behold the frozen beauty of Antarctica.

Members with Chairman's Club status can use Club Points to charter a luxury sailboat. Visit ports of call throughout the Greek Isles, from Mykonos to Athens, with a full charter of a 50-foot sailing yacht with skipper for up to 8 people. Or experience sailing along the coast of Thailand where you'll visit James Bond Island and Sea Gypsy Village on a catamaran that accommodates up to 14 guests, plus crew.

Explore the scenic splendor and thrilling whitewater rapids of the popular Colorado River! Choose from an exciting variety of rafting trips and camping trips for adventurers of all skill levels.
