“Pandemic notwithstanding, few visit Chile without feeling a profound shift. The power of nature can be incredibly rejuvenating and Chile’s wilderness won’t fail to move you”
If you’re looking for a way to blow out the cobwebs, then a trip to Chile, whose borders are now open, could do just that. With wild and windswept Patagonia in the south, the arid Atacama Desert with its lunar-like landscapes in the northeast and historic Santiago in the centre, framed by the snow-dusted Andes, you’re sure to find adventure here.
Chile is often on the once-in-a-lifetime list for its range of startling scenery, and with our travels so heavily restricted recently, perhaps now is the time to seize this bucket-list opportunity. Talk to us about arranging your trip – maybe you’d like to take three weeks to explore the length of Chile from north to south covering nearly 3,000 miles, or perhaps you’ve always wanted to discover Patagonia in-depth with its raw nature, glacial lakes, windswept steppes and jagged peaks of the Torres del Paine National Park. With its staggering breadth of experience, Chile will fill you with the joy of exploration.
“If you’re looking for a holiday with variety, then Sri Lanka offers a huge range, all easily doable in a two-week trip. You’ll come home bursting with new experiences, your wanderlust fully topped up”
We’ve always thought that Sri Lanka has all the ingredients needed for the perfect holiday. And for your first getaway since the pandemic, we can wholeheartedly recommend somewhere that will tick all the boxes so thoroughly. Tropical beaches licked by the Indian Ocean, ancient sights draped in history, tantalising food, wild safaris and some of the friendliest people on earth, Sri Lanka is the feel-good holiday you need.
With borders hoping to open from January onwards, you might want to take a sweep of the lush south-west coast, where white-sand beaches are framed by bendy coconut trees and the small fortified city of Galle makes for an interesting stop with its lighthouse, rampart walks and narrow streets lined with artisan shops. A traditional rice and curry lunch is a must – we can arrange that at a homestead or you can learn the secrets of Sri Lankan cuisine with a chef. Those after intrepid adventure can take the train through brightly hued tea plantations, spot elephants and maybe leopard in national parks or climb Sigiriya, Sri Lanka’s lofty rock fortress belonging to royalties past.
Go Green in Costa Rica
Why to travel in the 'green season'. There’s no need to wait for the more popular dry season to head to Costa Rica. In many ways, the country’s green (rainy) season is the best time to visit.
