Having spent the last two decades orchestrating life-changing trips for the world’s most discerning travelers to the natural and cultural wonders of the world, Blue Parallel is pleased to announce the relaunch of its Mediterranean product with breathtaking new experiences, such as a private early morning hot air balloon ride over the fairy towers in Cappadocia followed by a private whirling dervishes ceremony in the evening, an exquisite new private camp in the Sahara Desert, as well as an exclusive private yacht in Croatia and a private gulet in Turkey.
“After all of the pandemic-related closures and restrictions over the last two years, there is clearly a pent-up demand for travel to the Mediterranean, and we have been using this extended ‘off-season’ to further nurture and develop relationships in these destinations, allowing us to open doors more exclusively than ever for our customers,” says Blue Parallel Founder Emmanuel Burgio. “These places include Pena Palace outside of Lisbon, the Alhambra in Granada, and the Mezquita in Cordoba. Similarly, while Greece’s Cyclades islands are a world-famous vacation spot, we worked to find tiny islands like Sifnos that offer an authentic Greek experience without the crowds of Mykonos and many of the others. In Sicily, the Aeolian Islands boast lush vegetation combined with dramatic cliffs that drop into cerulean waters and far fewer visitors than famous Sicilian spots like Palermo. These carefully selected destinations might not be well-known, but after visiting them, we felt a connection, and it’s clear our travelers feel the draw too.”
