The wonderful world of Belmond revolves not only around iconic hotels in destinations that could take your breath away time and time again, but conjuring up itineraries, activities and adventures that guarantee you're immersed in everything that makes their location so extraordinary.
Watch the Sunrise Above the Clouds in Madeira
Stay at: Belmond Reid's Palace
Begin bright and early by travelling by 4x4 from the hotel and heading for the heights of Pico do Areiro, Madeira's third highest peak. Climb over 1,800 metres and you'll soon be hidden amongst the morning cloud, where you'll witness breathtaking views of the sun slowly rising. Linger in the magical moment for longer as your private butler serves a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and pastries.
Sail the Lagoon in Venice
Stay at: Belmond Hotel Cipriani
Hop aboard the hotel's traditional boat Edipo Re and explore the lesser known corners of Venice and sheltered smaller islands, enclosed in the Venetian Lagoon. While aboard the boat which once saw love blossom between Maria Callas and Pier Paolo Pasolini, sail in style and spot historical landmarks and often unseen sights, with the opportunity to relish cocktails and canapés, or a freshly prepared dinner on board.
Walk at First Light in Mallorca
Stay at: Belmond La Residencia
Follow in the footsteps of The Godfather in Sicily
Stay at: Belmond Hotel Caruso
Amongst the fragrant greenery of the Valle dei Mulini - meaning Valley of the Mills - waits centuries-old orchards overflowing with perfectly yellow Amalfi lemons. Explore one of the region's best lemon groves, taste the fruits and understand how they're cultivated using traditional methods. Of course, you can purchase a bottle of fresh, locally made Limoncello to take home with you, too.
Kayak the Riviera in Portofino
Stay at: Belmond Hotel Splendido & Belmond Hotel Splendido Mare
Revel in the Italian Riviera's beauty from a new perspective, as you explore the coastline by kayak. Paddle to the 18th century Ligurian Mill and venture to dry land for a delicious local lunch, or try the more adventurous pursuit of night kayaking, paddling to Portofino's hidden lighthouse to see the structure from a less frequented, but no less impressive point of view.
Try Truffle Hunting in Tuscany
Stay at: Belmond Castello di Casole
Home to some of the world's rarest varieties, where better to join an expert guide and experienced Lagotto Romagnolo dogs to uncover the elusive truffle than Tuscany? Following your experience, head back to the hotel for an exclusive truffle experience at Essere Spa, before sitting down for an irresistible four-course, truffle-inspired dinner created by Chef Daniele Sera.
Travel by Fiat 500, Vespa or Ape Calessino in Florence
Stay at: Belmond Villa San Michele
