nepal travel holiday


#1: The Arctic Circle

If you have an insatiable thirst for adventure, a journey to the North Pole sounds like one worth shelling out for. Head on a 14-day Arctic Icebreaker cruise in the Arctic and get up close to towering glacial formations, marvel at wildlife such as polar bears and walruses and even go for a dip in the freezing waters of Arctic Ocean, if you so dare.


#2: Namibia

Safari tours are nothing new, but ones that include a hot balloon ride and a ride in a light aircraft over the desert will be unforgettable. Lightfoot Travel’s 11-day Wilderness Safari itinerary also incorporates game drives where you can spot zebras, giraffes, leopards, rhino tracking excursions and an opportunity to interact with the Himba, a nomadic tribe in Africa. And while you may be out in the bush, rest assured that lodgings are far from basic.


#3: Rwanda

Here’s another one for animal and nature lovers: How would you like a chance to see gorillas in their natural habitat? Head to Rwanda on a four-day tour where you’ll explore the capital of Kigali as well as Volcanoes National Park to score glimpses of the endangered Mountain Gorillas.


#4: Colombia

Culture buffs will adore visiting the South American country to delve into its rich history and traditions. A 10-day tour will bring you from the cathedrals and museums in Bogota to charming little towns and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cartagena, a quaint port city that’s so full of character, it’s no wonder illustrious creatives like writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez called it home.


#5: Nepal

Most people visit Nepal as a jumping-off point to head up Mount Everest, but there’s a whole lot more to see of the South Asian country. Lightfoot Travel’s 10-day itinerary will bring you into Kathmandu, and then to the Annapurna mountains where you can go on hikes or visit local villages. Thereafter, you’ll get the chance to see life at an elephant camp – and you might just encounter other creatures like sloths, civet cats and even a rhinoceros (or two). Visit for more info
