You Dream It - We Create It
Our company mission is simple. It's all about matching you up with the ideal destinations and experiences you've been dreaming about.
First things first - Let's get to know each other. We start out by listening to you. What are your trip goals? Will you travel as a couple, with friends, family, all guys, all girls? How about accommodations and activities? Hard-core adventure with basic accommodations? Prefer luxury digs and fine food? How about both? Time-frame? Budget? We have a lot to talk about.
We get to work for you - Based on your preferences and date choices, we customize itinerary options and present them to you with pricing.
Get ready to go! - Once you select the travel plan you prefer, we collaborate to finalize the details and provide you with confirmations and documents. We're also here to assist you with pre-travel preparations.
Live your dream - You travel and have a fabulous time. We keep in touch with you and our chosen travel providers to make sure all is going smoothly.
Share the post trip - When you return, we'll be waiting to hear your feedback - all the things that went great, and what could have been better. Then we can began the excitement of your next travel planning journey together.
“It’s not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
Reimagine travel. Travel is way more than just the trip. The experience of traveling can’t be beat, but all this extra time at home has reminded us of three other things: 1. Looking forward to a trip can be as fulfilling as the vacation itself. 2. The best travel memories will never fade. 3. We should appreciate each other more, be kinder, and take nothing for granted.
We've been in touch with so many friends lately from the Bahamas, to Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Iceland, the Seychelles, Spain, Canada, Alaska and beyond. Talking over shared adventures, passing along old slides (remember those) and photos, and dreaming up what we'll do when we met again.
We don't see travel returning to the way things were before the virus. Instead, we'll all be more flexible, we'll cherish even more our ability to travel, explore, experience, and meet new people. And speaking for ourselves, we plan to travel more than ever.
We are all in this together. Travel brings joy in dreaming, the excitement of the experience, human connection, and a lifetime of memories that grow more valuable each day. Keep dreaming. We’re ready when you are.

"The solution to any problem -- work, love, money, whatever -- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be."
We couldn't agree more! And the truth is, we want to go fishing all the time, and we've spent our lives proving that.
We invite you to join us in what we believe are the best selection of fly fishing experiences available on the planet today -- from the saltwater flats of the Bahamas, Seychelles and South Pacific to the glacier-carved river valleys in Argentina, Chile and Iceland, to renowned rivers and lakes in the U.S. Rockies and Alaska.
Along with our travel partners we deliver to you the world’s most captivating destinations and intriguing cultures.
Embark on adventures in Costa Rica, Argentina and Peru, or in the Caribbean or Mexico, cruise the Amazon, ski your way through the Alps, discover America’s top ski resorts, or photograph the stark beauty in Torres del Paine, all in exquisite comfort.
While you’re traveling, you’re also helping to make the world a better place. Each of our travel partners is committed to sustainable tourism practices that support the well-being of the communities and regions you visit.
Take advantage of our invaluable knowledge, insider access, custom travel planning services, and incomparable perks and privileges.
Imagine waking up every morning in paradise, in the comfort of your own private villa. Lounge by your beachfront pool while our professional staff serves your breakfast. Gaze out over a glimmering ocean, a verdant vineyard, or take in glacier-covered peaks and mountain lakes.
This is your personal retreat, complete with luxurious amenities, dedicated concierge, private chef, and VIP services from beginning to end. We offer an unbeatable selection of private villas in more than 100 destinations throughout the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

"Hey Stephen - EVERYTHING was stellar! Quite a journey to get to the lodge, so thanks for suggesting time in Santiago on the way down. Great way to relax and acclimate to the time difference. Your choice of hotels was superb, and the handling of transfers could not have been better. All in all, it was literally the trip of a lifetime. Even the weather was outstanding for the entire week. Can't say enough about the lodge, the staff and guides, scenery, and the fishing. Give everything and everyone a five star rating. Thank you for the pre-planning and advice/help throughout. Stay safe and healthy in this changing world. Look forward to working with you again!"
"Kim and Stephen - Can't say enough about your recommendations from hotels, to wineries, restaurants, and an amazing horseback riding experience. And the asado was to die for. Everything spot on and then some. You two seriously understand luxury travel. Our wine guide, Natalia, was the best we've ever had and her knowledge of the Mendoza wine country was mind-boggling. I'm already talking with friends about a return trip, and this time we want to visit Iguazu also plus spend more time in Buenos Aires. Can't wait to plan the next trip with you two."
"Hi Stephen and Kim! -Thank you for all of your help with the pre-planning process and making our arrival smooth sailing. The pre-planning guide you provided was the best we have ever received for a trip. Eleuthera was spectacular, even better than you described, from our hotel, to fishing guides, snorkeling and just doing nothing at all. Now we really want to take one of your hosted trips but we can't decide if we want Argentina, Chile, the Bahamas again or Iceland. Help! We know they are all different so the best option will be to do them all. Let's talk soon about which one first."
