Favourite experience on my one-day Iceland stopover

On a recent one-day Iceland stopover, I rented a car and toured the Reykjanes Peninsula. One of two solo trips to Iceland in less than a month, I had created an itinerary of all the sights I wanted to see. The recently active Fagradalsfjall volcano, in the Geldingadalur Valley, was one of the main sights I wanted to see. What I didn’t expect was for it to become the highlight of my Reykjanes Peninsula tour and my favourite experience on my one-day Iceland stopover.

Travel ServicesWomen's Adventures
Solo female traveller in Croatia

Are you female, 50+, wanting to experience the world but suddenly don’t have anyone to travel with?

Thinking of taking your mom or granddaughter on an enriching vacation in Europe, South America or Africa?

Or have you been delegated to plan a girls’ getaway or retreat in Hawaii, California or the Caribbean?

If it’s your first time travelling abroad either solo or with your mom or granddaughter, no doubt you’re worried about your safety. If it’s your first time planning a group trip, perhaps it feels daunting trying to arrange everything that everyone will enjoy. Perhaps you’re also concerned about travelling responsibly and leaving a positive impact while you travel.

With a keen interest in sustainable tourism and women’s safety abroad, my goal is to create tailor-made women-only adventures to help women experience the world both safely and sustainably.

Whether you’re thinking of travelling solo, with your female partner, family members or group of besties, as a Custom Travel Planner, specializing in safe and sustainable women-only adventures, Kaz will help plan and arrange everything needed for an authentic, enriching and memorable trip as well as provide tips to help you travel as safely and sustainably as possible.

If you can’t wait till we can travel again, stop dreaming…

Have you considered how you can travel more consciously?

You’ve probably heard the buzz words “sustainable tourism” or “sustainable travel,” but travelling consciously is more about our own mindset than it is about doing something because it’s a new trend.

If we can all travel more consciously, meaning being more mindful of the impact we make on those destinations we so desperately want to explore, everyone will benefit—the locals, the wildlife, the environment and you, as well as future generations of travellers.

Conscious travel is all about connecting with and supporting local communities, respecting different cultures and individuality, as well as protecting the wildlife and the environment. It’s about making a positive impact when we travel rather than a negative one.

If you’re of the mindset that you’d like to make a more positive impact when you travel and need ideas on how to do so, download my fun infographic on 6 things you can do to travel more consciously.

Bucket List Destinations For Your Travel Inspiration

Below are four bucket list destinations I specialize in. I have either visited these destinations many times or studied them intensively, and have completed specialist training through the corresponding tourism boards to help my clients plan their once in a life time vacations. Which of these destinations are on your bucket list too? Plan your adventure sooner rather than later and check one more destination off your bucket list!

Want to travel around the world checking off one bucket list destination at a time?

It’s never too early to start planning!

We should chat about your options for when you feel comfortable travelling again. With the pent up need to travel again, increased demand for off-the-beaten-track destinations, and travellers using their travel vouchers to rebook travel to some of the most sought after destinations, there will be reduced availability and possibly above usual price increases. With many suppliers offering Book with Confidence policies and late cancellations, it’s worthwhile considering booking now for future travel. Kaz Custom Travel will be only too glad to help research your options.

4 Steps to working with Kaz Custom Travel to plan your next Adventure Around the World

Although Kaz Custom Travel specializes in helping solo female travellers, mums & daughters travelling together and women only adventures, you don’t have to be female to work with Kaz. I’m happy to help couples, friends travelling together, multi-gen families and small mixed groups plan their vacations too. I can even help plan your tropical vow renewal and/or honeymoon and can arrange an onsite wedding planner in your desired destination.

Hover over or click each card to see the four steps to working with Kaz Custom Travel.

Step 1

Schedule a Consultation

Discovery Conversation

The first step to working with Kaz Custom Travel is to schedule a 15-minute complimentary consultation to discuss your travel plans and trip requirements. If you decide to work with me at the end of our discovery conversation, I will let you know how much my planning fee will be based on our discussion.

Step 2

Create a Trip Proposal

Research, Plan, Create

The next step is where I do a ton of research and planning to create a trip itinerary to match your travel needs, interests and desires. I will also make recommendations and suggestions you may not have thought of and iron out all the details until you’re happy with the itinerary.

Step 3

Booking Confirmation

Payment Schedule

Once you are happy with the trip proposal, the next step will be for you to confirm your booking with a deposit payment. We will then create a payment schedule. At this time, it is also recommended that you insure your investment by purchasing travel insurance.

Step 4

Customer Service

Liaise with Suppliers

From the moment you book your trip, we will take care of all your travel details, provide all relevant travel information and documents, and liaise with service providers before, during and after your trip to ensure your experience goes beyond your wildest expectations.

Adventure & Vacation Planning for Couples, Families & Small Groups

Custom Vacations, Cruises & Tours

Although my main focus is helping female travellers experience the world safely and sustainably, I can also help couples, multi-generational families and mixed travel groups looking for a unique adventure, special occasion trip, or once-in-a-lifetime cruise in bucket list destinations.

Are you a couple planning your honeymoon or hoping to celebrate a special anniversary somewhere romantic? I can help plan your special trip to romantic, tropical destinations such as Hawaii, Fiji, Saint Lucia, the Bahamas or the Seychelles?

Have you always wanted to go island hopping in Greece? An Alaskan, Hawaiin, Caribbean or Mediterranean cruise? A rail journey through Europe, a Danube or Rhine river cruise? Or perhaps a Grand Tour of Switzerland is more your style?

Are you looking for an all-inclusive vacation in the Caribbean but somewhere more off the beaten track for a change? Have you finally decided to take that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia or New Zealand? Is hiking the Inca Trail in Peru or the wilds of Patagonia the next item to check off your bucket list? Or do you want to take your grand kids on an educational adventure with National Geographic? How about a European river cruise with Ancestry or Storytellers? These are just some of the trip ideas I can help you with.

I have extensive training in many bucket list destinations as well as supplier training, and the support of a large team of travel professionals. So no matter what travel experience you’re looking for, I’d be glad to help you plan your next trip.

Caribbean Luxury All-inclusive

For couples and families looking for the ultimate in luxury all-inclusive Caribbean vacations, I’m proud to include Sandals (and Beaches by Sandals) as one of my preferred vacation partners.

Why the Sandals Group?

Not only does Sandals offer more quality inclusions than any other resort in the world but all Sandals & Beaches by Sandals resorts participate in the EarthCheck bench-marking and certification program.

The all-inclusive company is committed to providing quality vacation experiences while working to minimize their environmental and social impacts.

Is it any wonder Sandals has been voted the world’s leading all-inclusive company for 23 years?
