The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and with summer in full swing, now is the time that many of us start thinking about a holiday in the sun, a trip around the world, or an exciting adventure in a far-flung destination that has been on our Bucket List forever!
The world is big, beautiful, and far more accessible than ever before thanks to the World Wide Web, and while your dream trip overseas may cost a little more than your average two week break on the Med, there are some things in life that are simply worth saving for!
Here are our Top Bucket List Adventures for 2017, which one do you fancy…?
- Trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
It’s a popular Bucket List Adventure, but one that never fails to please, and if you love the idea of trekking through magnificent scenery to the magical kingdom of Machu Picchu, this should be right up there on the top of your list for 2017. Trekking permits are strictly limited to 500 per day (including porters!) and they sell out 3 – 4 months in advance, so get booking now!
- Self-Drive New Zealand
Perhaps the world’s most popular self-drive destination, New Zealand is the perfect place to hit the open road with your road-tripping buddy. Beautiful scenery, friendly people, fabulous bars and restaurants, and accommodations to suit every budget come as standard in NZ, and with 2 great islands to explore, you can spend weeks or even months uncovering what this gem has to offer.
- Stargazing in Namibia
There are no words to describe the sheer beauty of Namibia! It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s sparsely populated, and so you can spend romantic evenings under the stars and watch the most spectacular light show on earth! Safaris, sand dunes, and skeleton coastlines await you in Namibia… so what are you waiting for!
No Bucket List would be complete without Kilimanjaro, and if you have had Africa’s highest mountain on your list for years, now is the time to tick it off! A life-changing experience that you will never forget, climbing Kilimanjaro is not easy by any means, but the feeling one has when standing at Uhuru Peak is worth every single step!
- Swim the Great Barrier Reef
Described by naturalist Sir David Attenborough as “his most magical place on earth”, the Great Barrier Reef is not only the world’s largest coral reef, it is one of the most spectacular places of beauty you could ever wish to see. Easily accessible from Queensland Australia, this is one place in the world that you simply must see before you die, so tick it off your bucket list today!
