Summer 2016

The migratory pattern of a British person generally sees them flocking to far flung climes during the summer months in search of sun, relaxation and (most vitally) a tan that will make all their friends and colleagues insanely jealous.

Oh yes, the summer holiday is that most precious of species and something we Brits wouldn't swap for all the tea in China (although that would be a tough decision). The question on everyone's lips, however, is where to go? The possibilities are endless. And that's where we come in. Our crack-team of destination experts will help you choose the perfect place to spend your summer holiday, whether you're in search of an action-packed family adventure, a relaxed romantic break, a wildlife bonanza on safari, a trip of cultural immersion, or anything in between.

Looking to go a little bit off the beaten track in 2016? With over 210 years of combined experience in creating tailor made luxury holidays, our regional experts will work with you to find the perfect summer holiday destination.

Where to go

Indonesia

Indonesia

The Indonesian archipelago consists of a sprawling chain of tropical volcanic islands comprising one of the most diverse and exotic nations on Earth.

Lion cub in Tanzania

Tanzania

Three times the size of France, Tanzania is blessed with a remarkable concentration and diversity of wildlife and ecosystems and on the vast stage of the Serengeti's short grass plains, the greatest animal migration on earth plays out each year.

A typical street view of Italy

Italy

Italy, we believe, is the perfect all round destination, with so much to see and do and food that is tantalisingly close to perfection.

Peru

Peru

The scenery is striking in its diversity, from plunging canyons to soaring mountains, lush rainforests to arid Altiplano.

USA

USA

A continent-sized country, the USA pretty much has it all, and Original Travel has cherry-picked the very best bits. We offer tailor-made trips to include experiences as different as the brash hedonism of Las Vegas and the wide open spaces of Montana, and the beaches of the Florida Keys or the majestic scenery of the Rocky Mountains.

Yuyunan Gardens

China

Modern China contains striking contemporary metropolises such as Shanghai and Hong Kong, and rural areas where life has changed little for centuries.

Dubrovnik overview

Croatia

Dubrovnik, Dalmatia and the foodie haven of Istria make Croatia one alluring destination.

Mountains

South Africa

The 'Rainbow Nation' has it all.

Gothenburg and the West Coast

Gothenburg and the West Coast

Gothenburg, Sweden's charming second city, is the gateway to the beautiful west coast archipelago of some 8,000 islands.

Brazil

Brazil

Indisputably the ‘in’ country on earth right now, and somewhere that we at Original Travel can’t get enough of.

A beautiful Monastery in Ladakh

Ladakh

Ladakh contains one of the most intact Tantric Buddhist societies left on earth.

Medieval house and lavendar

France

France is essentially the perfect destination for a luxury holiday – a fact born out by the statistics that the country is the most visited on earth year after year.

Caribbean

Caribbean

Original Travel knows the region well, and can recommend the highlights from the best bars in Havana to the best dive sites in the British Virgin Islands, and everything in between.

Koh Kood Pontoon, Thailand

East Coast Thai Beaches

Thailand's picture perfect beaches are rightly famous and combined with superb Thai hospitality and hotels, they are a dream destination.

Colourful lizard in Madagascar

Madagascar

Bizarre beasties and loco landscapes put the 'mad' in Madagascar.

Infant Orangutan

Borneo

One of the most alluring destinations in the Far East, the island of Borneo offers an unparalleled diversity of activities and cultures, and is a destination in its own right, even when not combined with mainland Malaysia.

Greece

Greece

One of the great summer destinations, with everything from historic ruins to some of Europe’s hottest nightclubs, our luxury holidays in Greece offer a combination of hedonism and culture that is hard to beat.

Japanese Parasol

Japan

Quite possibly the most 'other' destination on Earth, and in our humble opinion a must for everyone's bucket list.

Orange Lagoon - Bolivia

Bolivia

Landlocked Andean Bolivia is rich in ancient culture, music and folklore and perhaps because of the country’s relative lack of sophistication and infrastructure, is far less visited than its neighbours.

Brightly Painted Spanish Houses in Granada

Spain

Sometimes overshadowed by the charms of France and Italy, and weighed down by a persistent package holiday image problem, Spain remains an all time Original Travel favourite.

African necklaces

Kenya

The best 'bush and beach' destination in the world? In our humble opinion - without question.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka

The teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka, at the southern tip of India, is a small country with a great combination of attractions – culture, beaches and nature.

A Sally Lightfoot Crab

Galapagos Archipelago

Nobody comes back disappointed from the Galapagos; quite simply, it is like nowhere else on earth.
