Navajo Hogan, Monument Valley

Navajo Hogan in Monument ValleyNavajo Hogan in Monument Valley

A hogan is the traditional dwelling of the Navajo people. After a Navajo-led 4x4 journey deep into Monument Valley, head out into the desert as the light begins to fade to find your home for the night: a small but perfectly formed round home, with the door opening out to the east to catch the blessings and the early morning sun.

Stay in a genuine antebellum townhouse, built around 1840 for the grandson of the first mayor of Natchez. The opportunity to stay in a historic property like this in downtown Natchez is a rare privilege, a chance to be surrounded by history. Rooms are wonderfully restored with poster beds and tasteful, opulent decorations.

Lake Titicaca homestay

Lake Titicaca homestay

Go beyond the ordinary at Lake Titicaca. Stay with a local family on a beautiful island on the highest navigable water in the world. Straddling the Peruvian-Bolivian border, this beautiful lake is home to numerous floating islands, and spending the night here is an unforgettable experience. Snuggle up under the blankets and brave the thin, cool mountain air (you’re at 3,812m above sea level) and split your time between staring at the starlit sky and the shimmering reflections on the water.
