It has also expanded its roster of Local Living tours, designed to bring travelers close to the land and its people by embedding them in local life. Guests stay in one place, live like the locals and actively explore the region. Launched last year, the program was expanded to include 23 new trips for 2013.

Here are a few picks:

• Perfect for nature enthusiasts, hikers and shutterbugs, travelers on the seven-day Iceland adventure explore the country’s geothermal features and hot springs, and witness calving glaciers, crystal-clear rivers and crashing waterfalls. Active options include ice snorkeling, whale watching, whitewater canoeing, glacier hiking and caving.

• The seven-day Ecuador jungle tour immerses travelers in the lush scenery of the Amazon rainforest where they live with a local family, learn Quichua traditions and experience life in the jungle first-hand. Participants visit an animal rescue centre, hone their blowgun skills, take part in a jungle cooking class and artisan crafts sessions, and experience a shaman healing ceremony.

• On the eight-day San Gimignano tour, guests savour the gastronomical delights of Tuscan cuisine, visit Chianti and Brunello vineyards, discover medieval highlights and embrace their inner artist wandering the Tuscan countryside.

Another bonus? Starting Jan. 1, 2013, all departures are guaranteed.
