A new travel specialist offering 21st-century exploration for the curious, discerning traveller. Pelorus creates private adventures and yacht expeditions to the most awe-inspiring places on Earth, for families, couples and small groups. Every journey is built from scratch, using a global network of true experts, as well as a deep-rooted and trusted black book of scientists, archaeologists, marine biologists and conservationists, who have an intricate knowledge of their respective fields.
Whether it is designing journeys for families to see polar bears and the Northern Lights in Svalbard, for groups to off road in Patagonia, honeymoons cruising around the Philippines and Papua New Guinea unearthing the secrets of these magical islands, or heli-skiing in Alaska to find slope after slope of untouched powder, Pelorus is the start of these adventures, and at highly competitive prices.
Named after a tool used to maintain the bearing of a sea vessel in the golden era of exploration, Pelorus was founded in 2017 by two ex British Army Captains, Geordie Mackay-Lewis and Jimmy Carroll who used the knowledge and skills they forged leading British reconnaissance units on long-range desert patrols and helicopter operations to lay the foundations upon which Pelorus is built.
