Rajasthan – Land of the Maharajahs & Pushkar Festival

Colourful, cultural India is as vibrant as it is frenetic, and one of the best ways to see it at its best is on our one-off departure visiting the city of Pushkar, one of India’s oldest settlements, during the annual camel fair. Spend a full-on day mingling with cameleers and their steeds, who are often adorned in intricate blankets and drapes to help them fetch the best price. You’ll also enjoy Rajasthani folk dancing, have the chance to shop for authentic handicrafts and – if you’re suitably endowed – take part in a moustache competition.

Highlights of Andalucía

Tick off Granada, Seville and Cordoba on our Highlights of Andalucía adventure and you’ll get a heady dose of architecture, scenery and cultural discovery. In Cordoba, get off the beaten track with a walking tour through its compact city centre, strolling along narrow rambling lanes, soaking up the atmosphere and taking the opportunity to visit the UNESCO-listed Mezquita Mosque-Cathedral, with its blend of Christian and Islamic faiths.

Ancient Sicily

Exploring Sicily’s ruins with a local expert is one of the best ways to see the island: a highlight being the Villa Romana del Casale, whose country manor exterior gives away few clues of the wonders inside. Discover Europe’s most extensive display of Roman mosaics, including bikini-wearing girls, fishing cupids and hunting scenes featuring tigers, rhinos and elephants. Accompanied by historian and archaeologist Antonio Marretta, you’ll unearth the fascinating history of the 3,500 square metres of ruins with expert commentary.

Simply Vietnam

It is possible to see the very best of Vietnam in just 10 days, a highlight being learning the traditional art of lantern making. Lanterns were originally brought to Hoi An by Chinese traders in the 16th century, though the city is the birthplace of Vietnamese-style lanterns. In a small, family-run workshop, make your own lantern from a vivid choice of colourful fabrics which are then wrapped around an ingenious collapsible frame. You’ll be able to fit your finished masterpiece in your suitcase to take home.

Family Atlas Mountain and Sahara

Leave the comfort of your vehicle and, as a family, mount your camels bound for the oasis of Ouled Driss, where you’ll spend the night in the desert. At camp, you’ll make bread to enjoy with your Berber-style supper, before turning in – either to your tent or sleeping out under a million-tog duvet of stars.

Cycle Sri Lanka

Experience the hospitality of the wonderfully welcoming people of Sri Lanka, who are known for inviting visitors into their homes to shelter from a tropical downpour. On a recent trip from Sigiriya to Polonnaruwa, 15 cyclists crowded into a simple one-room village home at the behest of the owners, who chatted with the riders about their knowledge of farming in England compared to Sri Lanka – with a hot cup of tea for everyone, of course.

Walking and Wildlife in South Africa

Walk along the fantastic hiking trails in the compact but beautiful Royal Natal National Park, a highlight of the KwaZulu-Natal Region that offers the chance to explore the Drakensberg Mountains’ most accessible yet dramatic scenery. As you walk, keep your eyes peeled and your camera handy for craggy peaks, dense forests and impressive rock formations. The highlight of this UNESCO World Heritage Site? The natural Amphitheatre, which towers over the valley below with jaw-slackening views.

Spice Trails of Jordan

Discover the canyons, dunes and wide desert skies of Wadi Rum; staying in a private Bedouin-style camp means you’ll have privileged access to the ochre coloured sands, with magnificent night skies above you as you drift off. After a day walking amongst the desert scenery, watch the sunset over the dunes as you warm yourself around the campfire with a hot, sweet Arabic tea.

Family Greek Coast Caīque Cruise

All aboard your traditional motorised sailing boat: with Captain Thanos at the helm, you'll sail away to the quieter corners of the sparkling Aegean, exploring the historic forts and ruins of the rocky coastline. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for exploring as a family when you drop anchor close to unspoilt fishing villages, to swim in the crystalline waters, relax on deck and dine out at family-run tavernas on delicious traditional cuisine.

Cycling in Georgia

The beautiful and welcoming country of Georgia is best explored by bike. In the foothills of the dramatic Caucasus Mountains we ride a great road - with twists and turns, ups and downs - the scenery just keeps getting better until we are finally rewarded with a superb view of the 12th century cave town of Vardzia, carved impressively into the cliff face. Around 600 cave ‘chambers’ remain, including churches, meeting halls and wine cellars all connected by tunnels and steps.
