February – Iceland Winter Adventure

Enjoy wide, open spaces and reconnect with nature on our Iceland Winter Adventure. February sees fewer tourists visiting the island so you'll get to see this winter wonderland in all its glory. From mighty volcanoes and cascading waterfalls to icy glaciers and exploding geysers, Iceland is bursting with spectacular natural phenomena. February is also a great time to try and catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Look over the frozen tundra and gaze up above to see bright beams of fluorescent green and purple light shoot across the dark starry skies.

April – Best of Morocco

Exploring the bustling souks of Morocco may seem difficult to imagine right now, but come April, we hope to see them come back to life.

June – Best of Georgia and Armenia

If you fancy venturing further afield and to somewhere less familiar, Georgia and Armenia are tipped to be among the top must-see destinations of 2021. Alpine meadows and towering snow-dusted mountains sprawl across the Kazbegi Caucasus ranges of Georgia and the mesmerising blue hues of Lake Sevan in Armenia have to be seen to be believed. Meander through Tiblisi's quaint narrow streets lined with 19th-century wooden buildings and head to the Mother Armenia Monument for great views of Mount Ararat in Yerevan.

July – Family Turkey Coastal Active Adventure

If the kids are getting restless, whisk the family away for an active family adventure in Turkey next summer. Far removed from the typical beach package holiday, you'll spend your days sea kayaking over sunken ruins, swimming in idyllic bays, snorkelling in crystal clear water and having lunch with the locals in the wild Taurus Mountains. Set sail on a boat trip along the beautiful sun-drenched coastline, let the kids find their sea legs and leave the worries of everyday life behind.

August – Botswana Wildlife Safari

Fancy spotting the Big Five? Botswana is one of the best places to seek out these hard-to-find beasts. Arid weather in August encourages animals to gather at the waterholes, so the chances of spotting elusive lion or leopard are even higher at this time of year. Large herds of elephant tromp through the vast grasslands of Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta is a haven for Cape buffalo and the endangered Black and White rhino.

September – Highlights of Albania

As a relatively new and largely undiscovered destination, Albania has many cultural gems to behold. Escape to the wide-open spaces of the Benja countryside, wander alongside the picture-postcard aquamarine waters of Lake Ohrid, and uncover the dramatic Ottoman stone bridge traversing the fast-flowing Firtina River. Back in the city, lose yourself amongst the tree-lined avenues of Tirana and feast on traditional Byrek pies while watching local life unfold from a hip alfresco cafe.

October – Jordan Discovery

Take advantage of lower temperatures as you immerse yourself in the 'Rose City' of Petra, Jordan, in October. Get up at dawn to see the sun slowly rise over the dusty-pink cliffs and weave your way through the narrow alleyways of the Al Siq canyon in search of this iconic 1st-century archaeological site. Turn after turn, the excitement builds. Then, seemingly from nowhere, we come face to face with the Treasury; magnificent towering pillars carved into the rockface are haloed by the bright desert sunlight.
