Mankind has always embraced the concept of island hopping, from the Pacific crossing Polynesian wayfarers who eventually reached Hawaii to the Viking adventurers who hopped from Orkneys to Shetlands to Fair Isles, Iceland and then Greenland before discovering North America proper a good 500 years before Columbus was even born.

For latter day island hoppers, the reasons are not a relentless search for new territory or the odd bit of pillaging, but a pleasurable realisation that the journey can be the reward, and that islands that at first glance seem relatively homogenous all offer subtly different pleasures.

With this in mind, welcome to our luxury island hopping Collection to read about some of the world's finest island idylls, and the canniest ways to combine them.
