The META Collection

Meta travel
[ ˈme-tə ˈtræv.əl ]

Noun: Travel that teaches you to travel better. A concept devised by travel consultancy Brown + Hudson in 2020 to challenge the status quo of luxury travel.

  1. My time is precious. In 2023 I'm embracing META Travel to help me travel smarter.
  2. The result of years of research into the art, science and psychology of travel, and applying principles from some of the leading academic thinkers, META Travel is the future of luxury travel.

Introducing the META Collection

Over the past 12 years, we at Brown + Hudson have, in the words of Forbes magazine, refined "the ultimate in bespoke travel". And now, we've brought the same obsessive attention to detail and wild imagining to offer you an initial portfolio of eight extraordinary made to measure itineraries.

We've called this the META Collection and, as Greek scholars will know, as a prefix "meta" means "beyond"; and, when combined with words in English, brings the potential for "change".

Both are integral to the experiences we've created for you. Because we aim to go far beyond where luxury travel has taken you in the past. And, in the process, seek to change not only the way you view your journey, but also how you might feel about your very self.

You might take our Luxpedition to the High Arctic and stand on the very roof of the world atop Greenland's highest peak.

Or camp out with nothing between you and eternity except a million stars and the endless tundra that once shook beneath the thundering hooves of Genghis Khan's Golden Horde.

If you're attracted to the spiritual as well as the sensational, you can make that journey with your own personal therapist who will help you find whatever you're seeking as you follow the ancient Silk Road to Ulaanbaatar.

The path to enlightenment can also take you to Buddhist Kathmandu where you'll enjoy a private audience with a living goddess before discovering the secret of happiness in the Land of Thunder Dragon, Bhutan.

Or for spirituality of a different kind, perhaps you'd prefer to be marooned on the Isle of Islay whose ten distilleries make it the most prolific home of whisky in the world.

Travel safe in the knowledge that The Collection is carbon negative by design, ensuring that the world you traverse will be left in a better state than when you left home.

Whichever itinerary you choose, our aim is to transport you to places no other travel advisor would ever imagine. We mean that both in terms of the places we take you and the senses, sensations and states of mind we arouse within you.
