Sand Boarding in Egypt

How to Release Your Pent-up Wanderlust

If ever there was a year to go big on adventure, surely 2021 is the one. But it’s a tough call. Mountains or beaches? Jungles or deserts? To help you choose, we’ve collated some of our blockbuster adventures that get you back with a bang.

 

Hike up a Balinese volcano

Mount Batur

Call us biased, but we think our trip to Bali is the perfect post-pandemic blow-out. It’s got a bit of everything that you missed in 2020. Adventure. Culture. New experiences. New people. And some rather appealing tropical weather to boot. You’ll mix cocktails in beach bars, paddleboard off balmy beaches, and eat Balinese feasts with new friends. And as you scramble up a volcano before dawn to catch the sunrise from the top of Mount Batur, the days of lockdown and isolation will seem a distant memory.

 

Trek the Himalayas

Annapurna

A trip to Nepal is what post-pandemic travel fantasies are made of. Brace yourself for an unforgettable trek through the Annapurna Range on a four-day Himalayan adventure on our Mountain Vistas & River Quests in Nepal trip. It’s an achievable route for novice hikers, making it the perfect trip if 2020 has left you itching to get out there and try something for the first time. The panoramas you’ll see, and the people you’ll meet along the way, will remind you how incredible our world is.   

 

Explore the Costa Rican jungle

Ziplining in Costa Rica

However glorious the British countryside is, you’ll be forgiven if you’re craving something more exotic. Enter Costa Rica: home of tropical rainforests and paradisiacal coastlines. On our 8-day trip, you’ll test your nerves on a white water rafting adventure, fly through the trees on a zipline, and surf on barrel curls. At the end of adrenaline-fuelled days, spend evenings with your fellow travellers over good food and conversation. With not a Zoom call or Facetime in sight.

 

Take on the Egyptian desert

Sand Boarding in Egypt

If the jungle doesn’t tempt you, then perhaps a mystical desert will. Rev a quad bike and set off over the sand in search of Egypt’s transcendent pyramids and experience the challenge and exhilaration of sandboarding. Our Pyramids & Pharaohs in Egypt trip is an adventure that ticks all the boxes for adrenaline junkies. You’ll also return home a little more worldly, having delved into Egypt’s captivating history, gotten to know the locals, and explored islands by felucca.

 

Kayak with South Africa’s penguins

South Africa Beach

If you’re craving variety from your next adventure, look no further than magnificent South Africa. After the satisfaction of shunning the Table Mountain cable car in favour of climbing it, you’ll kayak with wild penguins off South Africa’s famous Boulder’s Beach. You’ll cycle the coastline where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, hike and swim in a nature reserve, and sandboard the Atlantis Dunes. And it wouldn’t be a trip to South Africa without copious wine tasting opportunities and gorging on delicious food.
