Where is everyone going this Easter?

Added 10 Feb 2014
Where is everyone going this Easter?
 

It's no surprise that so many people are getting away on an adventure over the Easter holidays. April is a great time to visitso  many parts of the world. We've had a look at what's proving popular among our customers this Easter and asked Explore staff who have been to these countries to tell us why they think this is. The top ten most popular countries to visit at Easter are, in no particular order...

easter morocco

1. Morocco
"Morocco really is a year-round destination. April is proving more and more popular in recent years due to it being outside the peak season and therefore relatively quiet. It's especially good for walking and cycling adventures as you'll be there before the soaring temperatures of the summer months really kick in." Louisa Richardson, Direct Marketing Manager
Easter suggestions:
Imperial Cities and Desert - departs 9th April
Morocco Sojourn - departs 11th April
Jebel Sahro Trek - departs 13th April

   
 easter spain madeira 2. Spain, Mallorca and Madeira
"Springtime in western Europe is beautiful. Spring flowers start to blossom, carpeting the countryside in a beautiful riot of colour. A walking holiday provides the opportunity to reach the most beautiful spots to enjoy the views. And of course Easter is the time of Semana Santa - one of the most important celebrations on the Spanish calendar." Jayne Smith, Adventure Travel Consultant
Easter suggestions:
Tramuntana Traverse - departs 5th and 19th April
Levada Trails of Madeira - departs 20th April
   
 easter jordan 3. Jordan
"April is an ideal month to travel in Jordan, especially if you’re hiking or cycling, as it’s warm and sunny without being overpoweringly hot. Being a desert climate the nights can be chilly even in April, but that’s more than compensated for by the cool and pleasant mornings and evenings.” Becky Powney, Customer Support Manager
Easter suggestions:
Lawrence's Arabia - departs 10th, 12th and 19th April
Spice Trails of Petra - departs 5th and 12th April
Cycle Jordan - departs 5ht and12th April
   
 easter cuba

4. Cuba
"November to April is Cuba's dry season so heading out there at Easter means you'll be there at the end of this. Visitor numbers will be beginning to dwindle but the climate is still warm and dry. And no matter what time of year you go, there's always rum to drink and salsa to dance!" Michelle Holder, Adventure Travel Consultant
Easter suggestions:
Cuba Libre - departs 12th April
Backroads and Beaches of Cuba - departs 20th April
Revolutionary Trails - departs 11th April
Highlights of Cuba by Bicycle - 5th and 12th April

   
 easter india 5. India
"India is a large country and, as such, the weather varies dramatically. However, it can be safely said that those looking for some guaranteed sun will get that in India at Easter. The southern parts of the country will be slightly cooler but still warmer than a regular UK summer!" Cat Morrissey, Commercial Executive
Easter suggestions:
Moghul Highlights - departs 11th April
South Indian Explorer - departs 6th and 20th April
Kolkata to Amritsar - departs 5th April
   
 easter italy

6. Italy and Malta
"Italy is beautiful. From its cities to the countryside and lakes to the coastline, it's a real feast for the eyes. This makes it an ideal place for a walking holiday. April is a great time to go; the landscapes are green and swathed in wildflowers, and there are fewer tourists at the main sights." Helen Thompsett, Adventure Travel Consultant
Easter suggestions:
Classical Sicily - departs 5th, 12th and 19th April
Amalfi Coast Walking - departs 19th April
Trails of Hidden Tuscany - departs 13th April
Malta and Gozo Discovery - departs 5th and 12th April

   
 easter sri lanka 7. Sri Lanka and the Maldives
"April is definitely one of the best times of year to visit these tropical islands. The cultural centre and the beaches of Sri Lanka will see plenty of hot sunshine, while the hillstations and tea plantations give a break from the heat." Hannah Methven, Product Manager
Easter suggestions:
Buddha's Island - departs 12th April
Secrets of Sri Lanka - departs 6th April
Maldives Dhoni Cruise - departs 5th and 12th April
   
 easter nepal 8. Nepal
"April is a great time for trekking in Nepal. It's approaching the warm season so even trekking at altitude is not too cold and there is a real buzz in Kathmandu. There are many flowers in bloom, including beautiful rhododendrons, which add a flash of colour to the trekking routes." Michelle Laverick, Head of Marketing
Easter suggestions
Manaslu Circuit - departs 4th April
Annapurna Panorama - departs 12th April
   
 easter burma 9. Burma
"Any thoughts of the chilly winter in the Burmese highlands are so far away in April; you can expect excellent weather across the country. The temperatures are high and there is little chance of rain so make sure you pack the suntan lotion!" Hannah Green, Adventure Travel Consultant
Easter suggestions:
Burma Highlights - departs 2nd, 5th and 9th April
Essential Burma - departs 18th April
Cycle Burma - departs 5th April
   
 easter turkey 10. Turkey
"April marks the beginning of the summer season in Turkey, so while the temperatures are warm they're not uncomfortable. The busy tourist season hasn't yet started either so it's often quite quiet on the coast." Linda Harris, Product Manager
Easter suggestions:
Aegean Sites - departs 19th April
Walking The Turquoise Coast - departs 19th April
