Find Your Coolest 40 Winks on a Collette Guided Vacation

The stories about sleeping in an igloo or a forest treehouse may be some of the most exciting parts of your personal travel tales.

Rest on a private, cruise boat gliding across the waters of Lake Kariba. Gaze at the night sky from your luxury desert camp among the sand dunes of the Sahara. Spend the night in a monastery in the Japanese mountains, complete with sliding paper doors, tatami mats, and monks to share meals with. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. While you won’t quite be sleeping on the actual tip of an iceberg, here are some exciting overnight stays to look forward to on a small group Explorations Guided Vacation: 

The Rainforest Retreat | Franz Josef, New Zealand    

You can take sleeping like a log up a level, literally. Become one with nature in a Tree Lodge Room, a cabin set on stilts to bring you closer to the lush rainforest. This property, close to the Franz Josef Glacier and nestled among the Southern Alps of New Zealand, is a unique spot to sleep on the wild side.


Featured in Collette’s Australia & New Zealand Uncovered Exploration. A 22-day vacation that begins in New Zealand, travels through Australia – including the outback, and ends in tropical Fiji.


Sonesta St. George Nile Cruises | Nile River, Egypt   

This is the way to take in one of the world’s most famous waterways in style. This 57-cabin river cruise ship is decked out with traditional décor to help you live out your Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile, and bygone-era dreams. Watch the Egyptian landscape slowly drift by you, relax, and savor your surroundings.


Featured in Collette’s Journey Through Egypt & Jordan. A 13-Day Vacation that begins in Cairo and travels through Egypt ending in Jordan.


Locanda Di San Martino | Matera, Italy

Meet an albergo diffuso, Italian for “scattered hotel.” The main lobby and central breakfast dining area are in a central location, but the rooms are scattered, a few minutes walking distance through the neighborhood. This concept helps revive unused villages from the past and gives you a unique European small-town experience.

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort | Finnish Lapland

Sleeping under the stars after looking for the elusive northern lights? Yes, please. Two nights in a charming log cabin and an evening in a glass igloo provide a dreamy respite from full days visiting Santa’s house, going on a reindeer safari, and leading a team of sled dogs. The resort also offers a ton of amenities like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, a spa, and a planetarium.
