Developing from their heritage off offering luxury adventure travel, Sanctuary Retreats now operates a variety of luxury river and ocean vessels to some of the world's most stunning cultural and ecological destinations. Their twin philosophies of offering adventure and luxury are seen with their Nile River cruises, Yangtze River cruises and a fantastic Galapagos programme.
In each of these three destinations they operate vessels with a smaller capacity than the average ensuring that you are looked after by attentive staff and experts in the culture and ecology of the region. This ensures a very personal experience and enables you to make the most of every minute of your holiday.
Sanctuary Retreats Galapagos cruise programme is underpinned by the support of sustainable tourism in the Galapagos and the ships it operates meaning their Galapagos cruises are Smart Voyager certified, adhering to rigorous environmental practices.
Both the Nile and Yangtze River cruises use vessels that are floating boutique hotels, meaning superior levels of comfort in areas where infrastructure couldn't otherwise support such luxury. And of course travelling by ship means there is no need to endure hours of coach travel. There are also experts in their field on hand throughout the voyage to give talks and accompany you ashore.
