Sea Courses and Collette Tours have carefully planned these arrangements to provide maximum enjoyment for participants.

Activity Level:

You’re an on-the-go traveler. You don’t want to miss a thing, so walking and standing for longer periods of time (1-2 hours) isn’t a big deal.

You can expect some longer days balanced with free time to recharge or set out on your own adventure.
