Take a Different Approach to Your Summer Holiday

When summer comes around, we usually reach for the same travel brochure or website and look for something similar to what we did the year before. A holiday on the beach in Spain, lying by the pool in Portugal or wandering in the hills of France are usually on the menu for the summer holidays, but why not try something different?

Below are a few options to consider if you fancy a slightly different break for this year’s holidays:

Trekking in the Himalayas

For the more adventurous out there, a trekking holiday in the Himalayas is a fantastic way to get away from it all, see beautiful sights and experience one of the world’s most incredible creations. Trekking in Nepal has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many people doing the hikes to raise money for their chosen charity. It won’t be the easiest, most relaxing holiday you’ve ever had, but it could well be the most rewarding…

Golfing in Dubai

As with most things, Dubai has become one of the premiere places to go on a golfing holiday. With guaranteed weather, some of the best courses in the world and all the luxury you could ask for, golf holidays in Dubai really do have it all. The best thing is that it also has plenty to entertain the rest of the family who aren’t golf enthusiasts. With beaches, breathtaking architecture, trips into the desert just some of the things to do, the non-golfers won’t find themselves bored whilst you work your way around the back 9.

Travel Through Eastern Europe

Eastern Europe is a beautiful collection of countries with loads to see and do. And the best thing is that it is all so close and so well connected, so it’s easy to hop between countries and see an amazing amount in just a week or two. If you get an interrail ticket you can hop on and off most trains, though it might be just as cheap to pay individually depending on what route you take. With the opportunity to see stunning places like Budapest, Lake Bled and Dubrovnik, it’s no surprise this is such a popular choice. So there you go, rip up your ticket to a holiday by the pool this year and try something a little different, it could be the best thing you ever did… This is a guest post from Tom at Navigator Travel who offer great value world travel insurance, perfect wherever you choose to go…
