1. Walking in Bhutan

Don’t look down as you cross over a deep canyon at the entrance to the sacred Taktsang ‘Tiger’s Nest’ Monastery sitting precariously on a vertical granite cliff at over 600 metres above the Paro valley. Prayer flags flutter in the breeze, and panoramic views of lush green pine forests unfold below you. This unique pilgrimage is worth every step.

2. Family Peru in Depth

Brace the kids for an adrenaline-fuelled day of white-water rafting in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The water fizzes and swirls beneath us and rugged mountains soar towards the sky either side of the gorge as we drift along the Urubamba River. And as if that wasn't enough, tomorrow we’ll get our first glimpse of the majestic Machu Picchu.

3. Cycle Lebanon

After a scenic climb through the mighty Chouf Mountains, we begin a thrilling descent into the Bekaa Valley. Feel the wind rush past your face as you free-wheel down the mountainside and take in the vast panoramic views of Lebanon’s rural heartland. Ribbons of emerald green vineyards stretch across the valley, and the towering Roman temples of Baalbek remind us of a long-gone era.

4. Iceland Yurt Adventure

Escape everyday reality with a stay in the heart of Iceland’s Golden Circle. Sleep under canvas in our custom-built yurts on a working farm in the wilderness, sharing your home with Icelandic horses. Head into the Eyjafjallajokull region in search of gigantic waterfalls and dare to walk behind the curtain of cascading water at Seljalandsfoss to feel the power of the water pounding into a swirling pool below.

5. Walking in Azerbaijan

Jagged rocks soar into the sky as you travel further into the narrowing gorge of Cloudcatcher Canyon. You’re greeted with breathtaking views as you reach the dusty red cliffs of Tolkien’s Chase and ascend further through the ever-changing scenery. Then, as the vistas transform into vast rolling green meadows, and snow-capped peaks begin to emerge on the horizon, the village of Xinaliq appears in the wilderness. Sit atop a knoll in a natural amphitheatre, in Azerbaijan’s highest permanently-inhabited village.

6. The Five Stans of the Silk Road

Get off the beaten track with a trip into Tajikistan’s remote Fann Mountains. Jagged peaks tower above you as you wind your way up through the valleys in search of the bright turquoise waters of the Seven Lakes. Feel all of your senses come alive as you dip into a chilly lagoon and take time to enjoy the panoramic views with a delicious lake-side picnic after your swim.

7. Highlights of El Salvador

Escape the tourist trail and soak up the lively atmosphere of El Salvador. Listen out for the distinctive clapping sound of ‘pupusas’ being cooked up in the streets and watch the locals skillfully wrapping your favourite foods into a corn flour dough, before patting it flat and tossing the stuffed bread onto a poker-hot grill. This delicious gooey treat is the perfect snack to fuel you on your adventure, as you immerse yourself in the eclectic landscape of this vibrant hidden country.

8. Family Costa Rica Rainforest and Wildlife Adventure

Feel like an intrepid explorer as you navigate the jungle waterways in Tortuguero's ‘Mini Amazon.’ Drift through the dense canopy and cross narrow lagoons in the heart of this tropical forest. Keep your eyes peeled for heron, stork and kingfisher hiding in the everglades, as well as howler and spider monkey swinging through the canopy.

9. Cycle Southern Spain - Murcia

The fragrant notes of almond and apricot blossom fill your lungs as you pedal through the vast countryside surrounding Cieza, Spain. Marking the beginning of spring, ‘La Floracion’ is a wonderful time to tour the region by bike. Feel the warmth of the sun on your back and witness a sea of pink and white flowers flowing through the valleys against a backdrop of lush mountains and blue skies.

10. Walking in Dominica

As you trek through lush rainforest, a haze of steam seeps through the vegetation, and a faint rumbling sound can be heard in the distance. Then, out of nowhere, you come face to face with the heated waters of Boiling Lake. Here, bubbling hot springs flow through the orange rocks, and the calm surface is broken with sizzling water; a contrasting view from the temperate waters of the Caribbean Sea you enjoyed at breakfast!
