Watch life pass by on an Imaginative Traveller Sailing Trip 

Watching life pass by on one of Imaginative Traveller's Sailing trips is one of the best ways to gain an insight into a country and culture - and experience some of the most stunning scenery on Earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to sailing – you can learn the ropes from your fully-qualified crew or simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the views. Spend days cruising around impressive coastlines, exploring lush National Parks, stopping off at medieval towns and diving off the boat into warm, turquoise waters.
