Where to go in summer

Planning your summer vacation, but undecided on the destination? Keep in mind that as temperatures rise in Europe, you needn’t travel far to find sun-kissed beaches and warm seas. Whilst Spain’s Mediterranean coast is a favourite destination for a laid-back escape, why not consider a cultural journey through the idyllic Greek Islands or a getaway to the gorgeous beaches of the Portuguese Algarve? Further afield, Costa Rica promises a tropical paradise of lush rainforests, abundant wildlife and wild beaches. 

Alternatively, why not make the most of the summer climate in countries such as Norway, Switzerland, or the Baltic States to take in their wild natural landscapes and captivating cultural sights. 

Of course, summer is one of the busiest times of year to travel, but you can still find great value summer vacation packages to your dream destinations. Perhaps you’ve always dreamt of visiting Machu Picchu in Peru or coming face-to-face with the rare and wonderful wildlife of the Galapagos Islands? The good news is that summer is a great time to travel to South America as it is the dry season, ensuring great weather for sightseeing and immersing yourself in the natural beauty of the continent’s rich environment. 

Furthermore, summer is a time of adventure, free-spirited travel and new experiences. Why not let the cultural treasures and extraordinary sights of Asia tempt you to take a long-haul trip this summer? Indonesia and Malaysia are the perfect destinations to add to your summer travel itinerary, enjoying warm, sunny and dry weather at this time of year. Other options for an unforgettable summer vacation in Asia include Sri Lanka, known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, the paradise archipelago of the Maldives, historic Vietnam or India, the vibrant ‘Land of a Thousand Colors’!
