Ecuador – Andes to Amazon

Escape civilisation in Ecuador, where you’ll be enveloped by the sounds of the rain forest. Float down the Napo River in a traditional dugout canoe in the direction of a remote village where you’ll have the chance to try the local delicacy, a fermented yucca drink known as ‘chicha’ – an acquired taste that’s made by chewing the plant before fermentation.

Romania is a great choice for a cycling holiday as it's an incredibly rewarding destination full of cultural highlights and natural beauty. Get close to the landscape and local hospitality as you pedal through the Carpathian Mountain range, refuelling on delicious food like franzela, oval-shaped crusty bread, served with a wedge of cheese called Năsal, which is made from cow’s milk and has a washed rind.

One of the highlights of visiting Mexico is the chance to feast on the delicious food on offer. Walk into the historical centre of Mexico City to the area near the Cathedral, where some of the country’s tastiest morsels can be found. Munch on tacos de canasta (literally, ‘tacos of the basket’) – soft tacos stuffed with mole, beans, shredded chicken and cheese, piled up in a cloth-covered basket with a variety of homemade chilli sauces on the side.

Walking in Bhutan

Start your exploration of Bhutan in Paro, at one of the Himalayan kingdom’s oldest and most beautiful temples, built in the 7th century. Inside Kyichu Lhakhang – which was, according to local folklore, built on the left foot of a giant ogress – follow the pilgrims’ slow, shuffling procession around the temple, spinning prayer wheels and making offerings of a butter lamp to ensure they will be blessed with safe travels.

Cycle Albania

Take to the saddle to cycle from the shores of Lake Ohrid to the Gramoz Mountains, before heading to the tranquil valley village of Germenj.

Contrasts of Colombia

A special departure to Colombia is timed perfectly to take in the Silleteros Parade in Medellin, where local flower growers walk through the city carrying meticulously planned flower arrangements on their backs – it’s a way for local people to celebrate these rural flower farms, and there’s often a turnout of thousands of spectators. You can be part of the crowd too, and observe the judging of the most beautiful arrangement, followed by a celebratory dinner.

Walking in Dominica

Hike through Dominica’s Valley of Desolation in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park and feel like you’re emerging in a new world. The barren, steaming landscape has a lunar-like quality, covered in vibrant rocks and peppered with sizzling hot springs which bubble and spit. There’s a return to the typical Caribbean the next day, when you’ll eat fresh red snapper on the beach with the warm seas lapping at your feet.
