Are you assembling your travel bucket list? Here are a few of the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that any adventurer needs to see. So grab your backpack and get ready to start trotting that globe... |
The first place that should feature on your bucket list is Iceland. A truly amazing landscape, Iceland is the most stark example of geology and geography in nature today. But what can you do there... how about getting lowered into a volcano? Thrihnukagigur is a dormant volcano that has had its magma removed, giving you the chance to descend in and get a closer peek. Very exciting, and a true one-off!
Looking for a path less well-trodden? Jump about the RMS St Helena and sail the high seas to reach this remote and sparsely populated island. As well as being a hotspot for incredible geology, its human history is even more appealing. Barely changed since Georgian times, St Helena is a real trip into the past, and into a totally different culture. Oh, and there are countless opportunities to see dolphins and whales!
Feel the Heat
In beautiful Tanzania lies the very popular (for good reason!) Mount Kilimanjaro. This is the perfect climb for someone who loves a challenge, enjoys exercise and is brought joy by incredible views. At 5,895 metres, those views aren’t even conceivable down here on the ground. The snow-capped peaks are fast disappearing though, so be sure to get this one ticked off your list quick!
If you’re looking for iconic urban thrills, then why not take a look at Cuba? It’s got history, it’s definitely got style, and for this one, it’s got the need for speed! Take a spin in a vintage motor car and cruise down the streets of Havana, the country’s capital. With coloured façades of buildings beginning to crumble away, this city has a real local vibe, whilst still welcoming tourists and visitors to its unique way of life.
A Wee Scottish Break
If hot weather doesn’t float your boat, then get yourself a sea kayak and visit Tanera Beag, a small, uninhabited island off the Scottish coast. With the option to see seals in the lagoon and to sleep under the stars – with nothing but a tent between you and the wandering sheep – this isle is a beautiful slice of the Scottish countryside that is not to be passed over.
Wherever you choose to go to tick a few things off your bucket list, keep in mind that even if it’s only a single trip, travel insurance is absolutely essential to ensure your piece of mind. When you’re off adventuring, relax safe in the knowledge that, even if you do end up doing something a little too daring, you won’t be left in the lurch.
With offers from single trip travel insurance to policies for multiple different holidays throughout the year, it’s easy to find the best fit for your grand travel plans. Bon Voyage!
