Chile – with breath-taking displays of autumnal colours, Vendimias (wine harvesting festivals) make this the perfect time to visit the central wine region, with the opportunity to get involved with grape stomping, enjoying local music and of course, wine tasting. Combine with a visit north to the spectacular Atacama Desert.

Cambodia – with very little rain and clear blue skies, now is the perfect time to relax on the southern coast. The Cambodian New Year takes place in mid-April and while a number of attractions can be closed, the celebratory water fights make for a fun event to observe or more likely, join.

Bhutan – the perfect time to witness the country in bloom, with pleasant temperatures and valleys bursting with nature, ideal for trekking. This also the month when the Paro Tshechu is held one of the most colourful and significant events in Paro Dzongkhag (district).

Seychelles – after the rains and before the south easterly breezes set in, April is our favourite month for visiting these beautiful coral and granitic islands. From well facilitated family friendly resorts to exclusive island hideaways, couples and children are well served in equal measure.

Namibia – after the rains you will discover a fresh, green and clear environment, not yet swamped with visitors. The best time to tackle the five day Fish River Canyon hike and beginning of the country’s Namibia’s game watching season.

Seychelles

Off the east coast of Africa lies a cluster of 115 islands, together making up the Republic of the Seychelles. This cluster truly seems to epitomise the expression ‘tropical island paradise’; pristine soft white sands on coconut fringed beaches lie adjacent to the brilliant underwater shapes and colours of the coral atolls while above them rise granite peaks shrouded in verdant mountaintop forests.  
take me to Seychelles

India

Not so much a country as a continent, India is an assault on the senses: spices, colours, palaces, temples, bustle and a magic hard to articulate. India is the sort of place you dream of visiting but with only limited time, where do you start?
take me to India

Tibet

Seated on a plateau at an altitude of more than 4,000 metres, Tibet is quite befittingly called the Roof of the World.
take me to Tibet

Tasmania

Tasmania was the last part of the Australian continent to separate from the great southern landmass of Gondwana 45 million years ago.  This, together with 10,000 years of isolation from mainland Australia, has resulted in Tasmania’s environment being significantly different to the rest of the country.

take me to Victoria

Western Australia

Western Australia is full of sun, wide open space, and friendly people – it is a great place for a relaxing holiday and a great place to experience some rather special natural attractions.

New South Wales

For many travellers Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is the starting point of their Australian experience. Sydney is a vibrant multi-cultural city that hugs the shores of a very beautiful harbour, making sightseeing by private yacht, launch or even on a ferry a particular pleasure.

Argentina

Argentina is a country of extreme contrasts and a holiday here can combine snow-capped mountains tumbling into glacial waters with scorched deserts and tropical rainforest.
take me to Argentina

Brazil

It is almost impossible not to fall in love with the colour and culture of this vibrant country. This is the place to come when you need a reminder that it’s the simple things in life that make us truly happy. The gentle beat of samba music; fresh fish pulled straight from the ocean and onto your plate (eaten with your fingers); warm, white sand under bare feet on an abandoned beach – no fancy deckchairs just you and the crashing waves of the Atlantic.
take me to Brazil

Peru

Most visitors to Peru will almost immediately find themselves drawn in to the story behind the Inca Empire. This enigmatic tribe has left on earth an imprint of how truly extraordinary the human race can be but left so many questions unanswered. It is no wonder that some of the world’s greatest adventurers who stumbled into Machu Picchu went on to dedicate the rest of their lives to researching questions unanswered.
take me to Peru

Ecuador

A visit to Ecuador delivers a punchy balance of Latin American culture, extraordinary wildlife and contrasting landscapes. 600 miles off the mainland, is the county’s star attraction – the Galapagos Islands. This pinprick in the Pacific Ocean is surly one of the world’s greatest wildlife hotspots and they should be on every nature-lover’s bucket list.  
take me to Ecuador

Costa Rica

take me to Costa Rica

Mexico

In spite of, or perhaps because of its proximity to North America, Mexico remains resolutely Latin American. The country has a unique Latin culture that has been influenced by a thrilling patchwork of ancient Mesoamerican civilisations, Colonial invasions and a rich land of geological wonders.
take me to Mexico

Cuba

Those seeking to immerse themselves in art, music and a way of life that has refused to conform to Western expectations will not be disappointed by a visit to Cuba. The country exemplifies a raw and heady fusion of Caribbean, Spanish and Latin culture that is utterly intoxicating.
