Travel Services

At Distant Lands, we can help with all your travel arrangements. Visit our American Express Travel Desk for tours, cruises, car, hotel and airline reservations. Or, to see Europe by train, let the Distant Lands Rail Europe desk help you with European rail passes, tickets, sightseeing tours and more.


The Distant Lands Show

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video can be worth much more! In our weekly video show, we’ll give you travel and packing tips; interviews with travel writers; gear and book reviews; and more!

Blogs from our journeys (and others!)

Come along on our next adventure! The Distant Lands crew is a mobile bunch, and when we’re somewhere with internet access, we’ll keep you up to date on our peregrinations. But just in case we’re not on the road, you’ll find links to a few hand-selected blogs from our favorite travelers, too!

Packing Lists

For most of us, packing is a necessary evil before we go somewhere fun. Our downloadable packing lists will get you organized and take some of the work out of the dreaded chore.

Helpful Links

While we’d love to say everything you need is here on our website, there’s a lot of useful (and volatile) information out there on the web. Here’s quick access to some websites we’ve found very helpful, such as airlines and fare compare sites, and some that are just fun, to name a few.
