As the evenings close in and the temperature drops, we at Original Travel brace ourselves for a scenario that goes something like this.

Scene 1. Winter. The Original Travel office. The phone rings. Original Traveller: 'Original Travel, XXXXXX speaking, how can I help?' Slightly desperate sounding potential client: 'I need a holiday.' Original Traveller: 'Well you've come to the right place! Did you have anywhere in mind?' Slightly desperate sounding potential client: 'Somewhere hot.'

Scene 2. Still Winter, but a few short weeks later. A beautiful sun-drenched beach. No longer vitamin D deficient Original Travel client: 'This is much, much more like it.'

The End.

Cue rapturous applause and bouquets of flowers strewn on the stage.

Original Thinking

Attention all sunflowers. For Northern Europeans, there are at least six months of the year when the sun is - how can we put this? - an infrequent visitor. So the decision is yours - pop down to the Electric Beach for a quick fix of UV, or follow the sun to one of our recommended luxury winter sun destinations.

Where to go

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.

Caribbean
Thailand

Thailand

Thailand is a vibrant blend of cultures and breathtaking natural scenery and, understandably, the most popular destination in South East Asia.

Thailand
Maldives

Maldives

Paradise islands don’t come much better than the Maldives.

Maldives
Australia

The vast island of Australia is a country of natural beauty and vivid contrasts, and a big Original Travel favourite.

A wonderful destination combining beautiful beachfront properties and dramatic mountain and desert landscapes to explore.

Oman
A Vineyard in South Africa

The 'Rainbow Nation' has it all.

South Africa
Mauritius

An ideal choice for anybody looking for lower-key beach time than is provided by the glitzier Maldives or Mauritius.

Seychelles
Windmill

Canary Islands

Yes, that's right. The Canary Islands. Cast aside those preconceptions and head to one of Europe's most pleasant surprises.

Canary Islands
Uruguay

Uruguay

The secret is sneaking out, but Uruguay is still a hugely under-rated destination.

Uruguay
Brazil

Brazil

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

Brazil
Mozambique

Mozambique

Mozambique is the ultimate holiday destination thanks to mile upon mile of palm-fringed coastline, warm turquoise waters and now a national park that allows for the ultimate 'bush and beach' combination.

Mozambique
Kenya

Kenya

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

Kenya
Elephants on a Tanzania Safari

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.

Tanzania
Argentina

Argentina

From the end of the world in Patagonia, past the pampas and sultry Buenos Aires to the hilltops of Salta, Argentina is big, bold and beautiful.

Argentina
New Zealand

New Zealand

Comparable in size to the UK, but with a population of only four million, New Zealand is one of the world's least crowded countries.

New Zealand

What has been most impressive with you is your speed of response, the accuracy of your information and the fact that you really make us feel you listen to our wishes and adapt itineraries to suit.
