There is a very strong affinity towards switched-on, climate-aware travel these days thus exploration tours with science experts on board (and in the company of fellow travellers who enjoy the discovery of science) are the hottest luxury travel trend right now.

The New Scientist, for example, has curated amazing itineraries, ranging from a Darwin’s Galapagos yacht tour with marine conservationist Jo Ruxton; to Dark and Frozen Matter session with particle physicist Kate Shaw at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider; to The Science of Pro Cycling with former Olympian and ex-Team Sky rider Phil Deignan at Tour De France’s iconic Mont Ventoux.

If you are more the academic type, the Smithsonian Journeys will take you for a week to Oxford University, where you can sample life as a student at Merton College and attend one of their fascinating academic courses.

The curriculum choice for 2020 includes The Rise and Fall of the British Empire, Myths and Legends of the British Isles, The Age of Winston Churchill, The Archaeology of Anglo-Saxon England, and The English Garden in History.

While the non-profit Blue Ventures will have you collecting reef data on their marine conservation volun-tours along the coasts of Madagascar, Belize and Timor-Leste.

Plenty of opportunities to learn more about the world we live in and save our planet.
