    Observe the abundant wildlife in the naturally beautiful Patagonian steppe, highlighted by a leisurely walk among a large colony of Magellanic penguins.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive along the New Gulf and on to rugged Punta Ninfas on the Patagonian steppe. The vegetation here is shrubby, wind-blown and an ideal wildlife habitat. Gray fox, llama-like guanacas and various species of seabirds, including oystercatchers and albatrosses, are found in this dry landscape.


    Even so, penguins are the star attractions in this part of Patagonian, as you will discover from your base at El Pedral Lodge. Perched on a cliff, the lodge was built in 1904 and some of the period furnishing still remain, including the mahogany dining table.


    From here, you will head to a nearby Magellanic penguin rookery for an extended walk among these highly social birds. If you hear the penguins braying like donkeys, it is simply the way they seek mates.


    You can expect to see the penguins tottering about, tending to their young, interacting with each other, and perhaps hunting small fish just offshore. A group of penguins floating in the ocean is called a raft; a group on land is sometimes called a waddle because of their awkward walk.


    Later, you will walk through a ravine where you can observe fossils from the Cenozoic Era, estimated to be at least 30 million years old. Lunch at the lodge follows, after which you will return to the pier.

    Indulge in a selection of delectable desserts while walking through some of San Francisco’s most attractive neighborhoods. Your confectionery adventure will begin with a snack not often thought of as a treat—a slice of toast—but one that has been elevated to an artisanal plane. Your so-called “fancy toast” may be topped with freshly ground almond butter or smashed avocado. One bite and you will understand how toast became such a craze. Upon reaching Alamo Square, you will pause for photos of the Painted Ladies, a cluster of seven colorful Victorian and Edwardian homes that are so iconic to San Francisco that they are referred to as Postcard Row. They are a treat for the eyes. Ahead lies the hip Hayes Valley neighborhood, where you will sample several unusually flavored ice creams before tantalizing your palate with a fresh-baked macaroon or an over-the-top cupcake.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Walk through some of the city’s most delightful neighborhoods while sampling treats.
    • Snack on a slice of “fancy toast” topped with a spread that makes it irresistible.
    • See the Painted Ladies, a row of colorful Victorian and Edwardian residences.
    • Savor treats such as uniquely flavored ice cream, macaroons and cupcakes.

    Discover the fascinating world of whales by watching them off Iceland's northern coast and then visiting a unique whale museum. A stop at a legendary waterfall rounds out this tour.


    Starting off from the pier, you'll first drive through northern Iceland's lush valleys to Husavik, the first Icelandic town to offer whale-watching cruises. It was a natural fit as the nutrient-rich waters of Skjálfandi Bay attract a diversity of species that include the Humpback, Minke and Orca.


    Upon arriving in Husavik, you'll board a boat ideally designed for viewing marine life and cruise into the bay to look for whales feeding on krill, plankton and small fish. During the three hours aboard, you may see Humpbacks raising their uniquely patterned flukes above the surface before diving, slender Sei Whales spouting through their blowholes, or massive Blue Whales gorging, as they typically consume an astounding four tons of tiny krill daily. It's also likely that you will spot some other marine life, such as playful harbor porpoises and white-beaked dolphins.


    Following this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and then visit the award winning Husavik Whale Museum. Here, you will have an excellent opportunity to learn even more about cetacean behavior.


    Continuing on, you'll make your way to thundering Godafoss, an Icelandic word meaning "Waterfall of the Gods." The name refers to an event that supposedly occurred 1,000 years ago when an Icelandic chieftain threw statues of the Norse gods into the water to symbolically demonstrate Iceland's conversion to Christianity. Whether the legend is true or not, it's quite a sight to behold the Skjalfandafljot River cascade over the horseshoe-shaped cliff and plummet into the roiling tempest below. Afterwards, you'll transfer back to the pier where your tour concludes.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a picturesque drive inland to the magnificent ruins at Dzibilchaltun. Until the arrival of the Spanish, the Mayans lived here for about 3,000 years. The site is considered to be the longest functioning city of the Mayan world.


    Archaeologists have found thousands of structures here, although not all of them have been excavated. The name Dzibilchaltun translates to “place with writings on the stones,” and these messages reflect life in the ancient world.


    Of all the buildings, the Temple of the Seven Dolls is the most impressive, certainly with regard to astronomy. The temple is oriented so that the doorways fill with light as the sun rises on the spring and fall equinoxes. During excavation, seven dolls were found in the temple, which are now displayed in an on-site museum.


    After exploring the Mayan ruins, you will return to Progreso and stop at one of its most popular beaches. You might stroll along the shoreline, bask in the sun or simply relax and take in the seaside views.


    You will have more than an hour to enjoy the music, snack on chips and salsa, and drink beer and margaritas at the open bar. If you choose, you'll have the option to purchase a nice meal of fresh seafood or Mexican specialties at the restaurant. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.

    Savor a variety of authentic Andalusian dishes, starting with hot chocolate and churros and ending with a five-course meal that you will enjoy with a local family at their home.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque drive inland, much of it along the Montes de Malaga Natural Park. You will notice that it is densely forested with Aleppo pines, which were planted throughout the surrounding river basin to curb flooding.


    Upon arriving in the village of Colmenar, you will be treated to hot chocolate and sugary fried churros, a classic Andalusian start to the day. In the nearby whitewashed village of Alfarnate, you will gain another insight into the local cuisine by touring an olive grove.


    Olive oil has been produced here since ancient times, and olives are an essential ingredient in many classic Andalusian dishes. As you will see, some varieties of olives are best eaten whole by themselves, especially those flavored with garlic, thyme and fennel.


    You will become even further immersed in the cuisine by joining an Andalusian family in their home for a five-course meal. You will enjoy tapas, soup, the main dish and a sweet dessert followed by coffee and liqueurs.


    Don’t just limit your conversation to the cuisine, as the family will be happy to answers about their lifestyle and how Andalusia culture has changed.

    Watch humpback whales and other marine creatures cavorting in the nutrient-rich waters at Point Adolphus, one of Alaska’s premier observation points. During the cruise, a naturalist will describe the diversity of animals that converge here each summer. They come primarily to feed in the waters that are extraordinarily rich in halibut, salmon and plankton. Point Adolphus is noted for having the highest concentration of humpback whales in the Alaskan panhandle, so be on the lookout for these majestic and intelligent creatures. You can expect them to be breaching the water’s surface, waving their flukes up and down as they dive, and feeding voraciously to fatten up for their winter migration south. You might also observe frolicking Dall’s porpoises, Stellar sea lions, curious harbor seals and Orca whales. You may also see graceful bald eagles swooping down to grab fish in their talons, and perhaps even bears and deer in the surrounding wooded landscape.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive to the beach club, an alluring setting right on the Gulf of Mexico. The atmosphere is laid-back and the amenities are magnificent, presenting you with hour after hour of relaxation and entertainment.


    What you do is completely up to you, as there is no set schedule once you arrive at the resort. You might take a refreshing dip in the sparkling sea or the swimming pool. You could stroll along the coast, looking for shells and admiring the natural beauty as the waves gently lap at the shoreline.


    As an alternative, you might settle into a lounge chair with a good book and an ice-cold beer or margarita in hand, compliments of the open bar. Or if you prefer, ease into a hammock under the shade of a palm tree. Countless amenities are available to make your day immensely relaxing and enjoyable.
