Summer is here, and family holidays are high on the agenda.

Summer’s here, and family holidays are high on the agenda – with the azure waters of the Mediterranean top of the list for many. Away from the beach, there are no shortage of adventurous options, from hiking in the High Himalayas to discovering ancient Incan ruins.

Europe is in full swing during July. Sip rose in Provence or grab a good book, find a sun lounger and soak up the sun in Mallorca. From the rolling Tuscan hills to the fabulous beaches of Puglia, mainland Italy is also idyllic. Intrepid adventurers are spoiled for choice too – hike the Inca Trail to the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru or immerse yourself in the Buddhist culture and high-altitude desert landscapes of India’s Ladakh region. The wildebeest thunder across Kenya’s Masai Mara in late July as the Great Migration kicks off, while Mozambique sees humpback whales coasting off its shores.
