For somewhere not too far from home, how about a daring weekend getaway in Indonesia? For starters, lace up your hiking boots and head up to the top of Mount Bromo with Klook. Kick off the experience with a thrilling 4WD jeep ride over to Mount Penanjakan to watch the sunrise then go on to explore the volcano’s impressive crater and caldera. Alternatively, spend a day exploring Komodo Island with Bintang Komodo Tours. If you’re lucky, you might be able to spot the majestic Komodo dragon in its natural habitat!
Take the entire fam on an exhilarating adventure in Australia, starting with a gorgeous snorkelling trip at the Great Barrier Reef with Viator. This experience is on a luxurious superyacht with a BBQ lunch included. Want to experience that daredevil thrill? Scale to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge with a Klook tour! Standing at 134 metres high, the towering bridge offers unparalleled views of Sydney and the surrounding harbour. Nature lovers, make your way to the Northern Territory and embark on a kayaking escapade along the Katherine River with Gecko Canoeing and Trekking to explore different habitats with abundant wildlife.
One quintessential bucket list item is to explore the enigmatic pyramids of Egypt, made easy with this Viator option. The fuss-free tour has it all: ride a camel beside the Giza pyramids, visit the Eygptian Museum, go toe-to-toe with the Sphinx, and shop your way through a bazaar. Or, join a 9-day tour from TourRadar, which includes visiting the pyramids, a Nile cruise, explorations of the Luxor temple and Karnak temple, and loads more. Meals and accommodation are also included. All you need is a travel visa and you’ll be good to go!
Thinking of venturing across the globe to Canada? There’s plenty to do in this massive country, and one of our favourite activities is whale-watching. The half-day tour by Telegraph Cove ticks all the boxes, allowing you the opportunity to feast your eyes on these gentle creatures in the wild. (The tour offers a guaranteed whale sighting!) For more picture-perfect moments in the wild, ready your cameras at every turn on a Lake Louise and the Icefields tour by Viator. Or, if you’re looking for a more active adventure, spend the weekend learning how to paddle surf in Tofino with Norm Hann expeditions and catch your first wave with absolutely no prior experience required!
Here’s the news we’ve all been eagerly waiting for: Japan is finally fully reopening its borders! For you ski enthusiasts out there: take to the slopes on a 12-day freeride ski trip in Niseko and its surroundings with Explore-Share. Indulge in days of skiing and hiking, topped off with relaxing soaks in an onsen. We’re eyeing the sailing experience from Viator as well – head to the ancient Lake Biwa for a fun day out, with an optional two-hour BBQ on the balcony of Biwako Rakuen Hotel Izutsu. Fun fact: the experience is on a 30 feet private sail boat and the lake is UNESCO protected attraction due to its rich ecosystem.
