With 2017 fast approaching, new travel experiences are on everyone’s minds! Instead of blowing our own trumpet, we thought we’d take a peek at Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel’ list which, this year, celebrates 3 of our favourite, remote cycling destinations….
- Destination: Colombia
Trips: Emerald Mountains | Best for: Roadies.
They say: ‘The country’s mix of vibrant culture, nature and hospitality is a rich tapestry woven by welcoming arms.’
We say: With two sold out tours already in 2017, our long-haul road destination is proving incredibly popular. With the chance to tackle the world’s longest climb, we think we know why…
- Destination: Myanmar (Burma)
Trip: Bagan and Beyond | Best for: Adventure seekers.
They say: ‘A window onto a vanishing Asia, where life moves to the timeless rhythm of chanting monks and monastery bells.’
We say: Our new tour to Burma seems perfectly timed and makes the most of the country’s best features, including the extraordinary, ancient temples of Bagan.
- Region: The Azores, Portugal
Trip(s): Islands and Volcanoes, Azores Adventures & Lakes and Volcanoes. | Best for:Leisure lovers, families and roadies.
They say: ‘Its natural assets resemble an array of superlative sights pulled from other destinations: lush Hawaiian volcanoes, gurgling Scandinavian hot springs and rugged Patagonian craters.’
We say: The perfect way to experience exotic landscapes, without the epic long-haul flight. This stunning island is packed full of wonder and has something for all to enjoy.
