Winter Travel •
Gone are the days that the whole family would long for those summer months, as that meant TRAVEL! This year, winter is the new summer!
Winter used to be the "off-peak" season for most destinations but things are about to change according to travellers. This period is becoming widely popular as there are usually less people around this time of year, at least for now.
There are also a lot of attractive winter festivals from around the world. Travel far and wide to experience some of these in 2018!
Activities like going to the beach, engaging in outdoor fun like scuba diving and kayaking will always be in! But in 2018, why not explore the local culture of your travel destination? You can successfully get a dose of the culture by taking cooking classes often hosted by hotels, visiting the old city and embarking on a walk through the local markets! See the people, speak their language and try their food, drink and traditional dress.
Wellness Trips •
Most people are going towards the healthy route, including health-conscious travel. Wellness trips include clean eating & activities such as yoga, environmental beauty, fitness classes and sports. Get some zen and go back home refreshed.
Destination Canda •
Canada saw some 20 million travellers in 2016! And this year, these numbers are not about to go down! Canada is growing in popularity and has become an international travel destination for people from all over the globe! With breathtaking attractions such as Niagara Falls, Banff National Park and The Rocky Mountains, it is no wonder this is a trend for 2018.
