Following the success of their first Seriously Special book, Scott Dunn has unveiled the second edition of an exclusive coffee table book for their guests. Seriously Special – The Experiences features a collection of amazing moments, from adrenaline-fueled adventures to once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters and unique cultural immersions, all to inspire travellers to venture beyond their comfort zone when booking their next getaway.
The thoughtfully curated collection is a true representation of Scott Dunn’s core offering – creating unforgettable travel memories for each guest, tailored to suit their interests and passions in life. All have been selected by Scott Dunn’s experts with a number of them being completely exclusive to Scott Dunn guests. Highlights from the list of immersive adventures include:
SNORKELLING BETWEEN TECTONIC PLATES
During the summer months, Iceland boasts 24 hours of daylight, providing the opportunity to snorkel or dive at one of the country’s best-kept secrets under the light of the midnight sun. Regarded as one of the top dive sites in the world, this truly unique experience gives divers the chance to float between continents – it’s where the North American and Eurasian plates meet – with visibility that can extend up to 100 metres. The crystal-clear waters of Iceland can be experienced as part of Scott Dunn’s Ultimate Iceland itinerary.
TEEPEE WILDERNESS CAMPING IN LAPLAND
The wilderness of remote Lapland is best experienced when immersed with nature under canvas in a luxury, heated Teepee tent. This exclusive camp is set upon request for each group that visits and is kitted out with full-sized beds dressed in crisp bed linen and with a private chef on hand who will cook up gourmet meals based on fresh Lappish produce. Though the camp can be set up at any point during the year, the winter period allows for unforgettable activities for travellers coming from the topics like husky sledging and snowmobiling. The winter is also the perfect time to spot the Northern lights in all their glory – far removed from the pollution of artificial lights. This unique experience can be booked as part of Scott Dunn’s Teepee adventure itinerary.
24 HOURS IN ANTARCTICA FROM CAPE TOWN
Luxury hotel, Ellerman House, is now offering the “Greatest Day” experience, where adventurous guests can opt to enjoy a 24-hour round trip to the icy white desert of Antarctica. The private jet is boarded in the evening before an overnight flight to Antarctica for activities that can range from gentle to adrenaline-fuelled. The day of exploring the rolling white desert and ice glaciers will end with a three-course dinner before boarding the plane for the relaxing flight back to Cape Town. This once-in-a-lifetime experience can be incorporated into Scott Dunn’s Antarctica Escape, city break and big 5 safari itinerary.
TASTING YOUR WAY AROUND SPAIN BY PRIVATE JET
Food aficionados can experience new levels of luxury flying on their own private jet while enjoying the best of the traditional tapas, delicious local fare and Michelin-starred delights of Spain. Starting in San Sebastián to explore the wonders of Basque cuisine, from “pintxos” with the locals to avant-garde Michelin-starred gastronomy, the journey then continues on to Seville to enjoy the city’s spectacular tapas and lively bars, before crossing the Balearic sea for Mallorca. The last few days in Mallorca are spent indulging in organic dishes at the island’s best farm-to-table restaurants while enjoying the flavours of rural Spain. This experience can be booked exclusively through Scott Dunn.
ANGKOR THOM SCAVENGER HUNT BY BICYCLE
A Scott Dunn exclusive, this experience is a one-of-a-kind, entertaining way to explore the iconic Angkor Thom, one of the most impressive temple cities within the Angkor Archaeological Park. Curious guests can travel between the ruins by bicycle or scamper across the temples on foot to discover 11 clues across the site – and there is of course a prize at the end for those who manage to find all of them! Photos will need to be shown as evidence of the clues being found, so it’s a great way to build on the travel library with some more unusual snaps. The experience is perfect for families of all ages as well as for fun-loving couples looking for something a bit different. The scavenger hunt can be booked as part of Scott Dunn’s Treasure of Asia itinerary.
As incredible as the above may sound, this is merely a teaser of the myriad of unique activities featured in Scott Dunn’s Seriously Special – The Experiences book, which includes more than 50 experiences categories under: Sport & Adrenaline, Food & Wine, Guides & Experts, Immersive, Wildlife and Wilderness.
