Three Summer Destinations
Want to jet off to sunnier climes?
Published 17 May 2012 in Featured Articles
When summer arrives, most of us feel the urge to jet off to a sunnier or warmer climate, to make the most of the season.
However, the usual tourist hotspots become overcrowded very quickly as package tours dump ever more travellers on their streets and beaches.
Instead, why not head away to somewhere a little different? Here are just three possibilities that you may have overlooked.
Tours of Eastern Europe such as those offered by the Baltic Travel Company can take in several countries - the company runs coach tours through Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, as well as neighbouring Russia and Poland.
These are holiday destinations for true sunseekers, although the Garden Route is famed for having a slightly milder climate than the rest of the country. Wherever you choose to stay, renting a villa is a good option to provide you with a base from which to explore, with a drive to Cape Town, a trip to the nearest beach, or a trek into the local countryside.
Honeymooners can relax in a lush and welcoming environment with plenty of natural beauty - complemented perfectly by a refreshing dip in your private pool, if your villa has one - while thrillseekers can choose instead to stay in a game lodge and see what wildlife they can spot in the surrounding reservation.
Specialist travel operators like Shakti Tours can help you to explore the peaks safely - not only for your own safety, but also for the preservation and conservation of the mountains themselves.
The company has earned commendations in the past for its commitment to responsible travel in mountainous areas, and is one of several capable of running tours with minimal ecological or cultural impact.
Some of the holidays described above take you to places where summer can be enjoyed at its fullest ferocity, with sun-soaked beaches and ice-cream-melting temperatures, while others help you to escape the heat by heading for high altitudes - but all of them are bound to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
