Unique Worldwide Adventures to Define Your 2023!

29 December 2022

If you really want to make your mark on a brand new year, booking a unique adventure is a great way to start!

There’s nothing like pinpointing something that, deep down, you’ve always wanted to do. Then, making your way to a far-flung corner of the world (often an adventure in itself!) to finally tick it off your bucket-list.

It’s like enveloping your soul in a warm, well-deserved hug. But…how do you begin finding just the right adventure?

We know how difficult it can be to get your brain off the starting block. That’s why we’ve combed our listings to find the most unusual and invigorating adventures the world has to offer.

For example, how about a visit to Namibia’s raw, rugged Skeleton Coast for an unforgettable desert tour? Or a breathtaking stay in the frosty capital of Lapland, meeting Arctic animals and Santa at his home… then bedding down in a mobile wagon that’s perfectly positioned for you to gaze at the Northern Lights?

We’ve got plenty more wonders to show you, from Thai treetop havens and a private,sun-dappled Greek island, to a Canadian architectural gem with its very ownbeach.

Which unique adventure will you take this year?
