If you have wanderlusts in your life and are looking to give the gift of memories with an unforgettable trip, we are here for you! How do you select the perfect trip with so many destination options? You are in luck! This week we are setting our sights on destinations for the adventure-seeker and the eco-tourist.
FOR THE ADVENTURE-SEEKER
If you have an adventure-lover in your life, we know they need loads of action and fun packed into their vacation destination. Here are our top three options sure to inject some adrenaline into the trip!
Switzerland is an amazing destination for the adventure seeker in your life because it offers endless activities regardless of the season – especially Interlaken. In the summer, try canoeing, paragliding, bungee jumping, whitewater rafting or skydiving. Equally, the winter months are perfect for snowshoeing, night sledding, skiing, snowboarding (of course) or even glacier landing. If you have an adrenaline junkie in your life, the Seilpark Interlaken Rope Park is impressive and an excellent option for families. It’s a forest-based adventure with different challenges and obstacle courses from beginner to advanced challenges amongst the treetops! If you are considering a group travel trip, we still have space for you to join us on our exclusive journey, Magnificent Switzerland in 2022.
Alaska is packed with amazing experiences like glacier hiking, skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling and so much more! Did you know Alaska also has amazing water adventure options too? If whitewater rafting gets your heart pounding, Alaska has class five and six rapids – some of the best in the U.S. Another option is kayaking through fields of icebergs and glacier-carved fjords – both breath-taking and heart pounding action. Whether you’re exploring Alaska in winter or summer, expect impressive wildlife and captivating adventure opportunities at every turn! And if you are looking to travel with a group, we have a very limited number of seats still available on our Alaska land+sea journeys with Holland America Line in 2022. We’ll also be announcing 2023 trips soon!
Finally, if you are seeking tropical adventure, then Maui, Hawaii will not disappoint! Maui offers beautiful, relaxing beaches and it’s also the perfect destination for an adventure-seeker! Underwater snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters gives you a glimpse into the beauty of the underwater wildlife. Equally, hike the Maui rainforest for endless thrills, including stunning waterfalls, swimming splash pools and hidden caves that are waiting to be explored. Not surprising, our 2022 Hawaii group tours are already sold out; however, we have 2023 group vacations we just announced. Best of the Hawaiian Islands in 2023 and Grand Hawai’i in 2023 will sell out fast, so book today!
FOR THE ECO-TOURIST
If you have an eco-friendly, nature lover in your life, we know they need impressive landscapes with endless biodiversity. Here are our top three options sure to please your eco-friendly traveler.
Costa Rica is a top eco-tourist travel destination because of its well-protected natural beauty. Volcanoes, pristine beaches and rainforest are all part of its stunning biodiversity. Being a small country located in the heart of Central America, Costa Rica is leading the way for sustainability and ecotourism for the region, and even the rest of the world. In fact, a quarter of Costa Rica is dedicated to parks, reserves and conservation areas. Experience the beauty of Costa Rica’s thriving rainforest during a canopy walk, and you are sure to spot exotic flora and fauna without bothering any of the living creatures surrounding you. Plus, there are plenty of eco-friendly accommodations offered throughout the country.
Norway might not be a place that first comes to mind when thinking of ecotourism, but the country’s culture of trying to live sustainably has influenced its travel industry extensively — especially in the Norwegian Fjords. The Geirangerfjord area is a testament to the natural beauty of Norway with its near-vertical waterfall drops: The Seven Sisters, The Suitor, and The Bridal Veil. Sightseeing trips are available to experience the natural splendor, or you can opt to go kayaking, fishing, cycling, or hiking. Check out our upcoming Stunning Scandinavia and the Fjords Group Vacation happening in 2023.
Iceland has recently become a top tourist destination as it lures visitors in with its remote beauty. The country is the cleanest energy consumer in the world, and travelers can reduce their footprint by hiking, biking and horseback riding instead of driving when exploring the country. The volcanic island is littered with geological wonders, from volcanoes to hot springs, caverns to geysers. If you are interested in exploring Iceland, check out the Iceland Adventure Tour with Colleen Alsberg traveling this summer!
