Home » History & Culture Experiences

One of the most intriguing parts of travel entails learning about a destination’s past. A luxury yacht charter enables you to explore the history of numerous islands or even countries on one trip. What’s more, you have access to remote places to witness lesser-known aspects of societies, most people never get to see.

While some of the world’s small nations have retained their autonomy, customs, and traditions for millennia, others have seen centuries of tumultuous invasion and colonization. This has led to the mixing of cultures and has over time created fascinating nations of mixed ethnicities, traditions, cuisine, and architecture. These places can be found across the globe, however, a few really stand out as some of the best history and culture yacht charters to experience.

The British Virgin Islands are no stranger to conflict. Before Christopher Columbus discovered and subsequently named them, they were home to Arawak and other Carib tribes. After the Spanish, Dutch and British rule, the islands were finally emancipated and today have a modern state. The influence of these periods has shaped the diversity of the people and the islands.

Belize is also rich with natural and cultural curiosities throughout its small nation. A day trip from your charter will bring you to ancient Mayan ruins and temples of a powerful civilization from 2600 BC. Be amazed as you wander through cities and pyramids built by an extremely intelligent South American nation that has sadly disappeared.

Europe on the other hand remains one of the most interesting places to visit for those of you who want to sip a coffee in lovely piazzas built by the Romans or ancient Greeks. Italy, Greece, France, Spain, and Croatia are full of still thriving historic villages, castles, cathedrals, and monuments. Amphitheaters can be toured across Sicily, while extravagant villas and chateaus are plentiful in France.
