Explore New Tours and Events
By Tyler Bohlman
Take your vacation to the next level with new offerings through the Explorer Collection. Whether you’re learning about a new culture with a guided tour or experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime event, you can do it all with these exciting opportunities:
FIVE NEW COLLETTE CHAIRMAN’S CLUB TOURS
Owners at the Chairman’s Club Owner benefit level have special access to experience the world like never before on curated small-group tours. Discover a new way of life in Japan when you stay among Buddhist monks in a monastery on Mount Kōya, meet Japan’s Ama pearl divers, and wander in a bamboo forest; taste the flavors of Spain and Portugal when you explore wine cellars and vineyards, go on a tapas-style “pub crawl,” and tour a cider house; take an Italian tour from the Amalfi Coast to Puglia, where you will sample wine from Pompeii, spend two nights in a cave-dwelling accommodation, and visit and shop in UNESCO World Heritage sites; or trek to the edge of the world when you walk among glaciers, visit Cape Horn, and dine with gauchos (cowboys) on a Patagonia tour.
Ranging from 14–16 days, with intimate groups of 14–24 travelers, these tours do more than introduce a new culture — they provide fully curated and immersive experiences around the world featuring expertly crafted food and wine throughout. Book for 2022 or 2023. View your options online.*
12 NEW WORLD-CLASS PREMIER EVENTS
Executive, Presidential, and Chairman’s Club Owners can live life like a VIP with some of the biggest events in sports, shopping, food, and more.
