Original Travel's Big Short Breaks, launched in 2003, are a portfolio of short breaks to suit all requirements from city breaks to skiing, and adventures and escapes, all chosen with accessibility in mind. It's all about minimum time and maximum experience. While these trips are as much tailored to your specific requirements as our further-flung holidays, they represent perfect nugget-sized long weekend trips.
The team at Original Travel research hundreds of potential luxury short break destinations, but only the very best make the grade in terms of accessibility, originality and value for money. Those that do appear here might raise an eyebrow or two - can you really spend the weekend sampling sauvignon blancs in South Africa's Winelands? Certainly you can, with the benefit of overnight flights and minimal time changes. Or seeing polar bears in the wild? Equally possible with two or three days in Svalbard, the desolate Norwegian island chain deep in the Arctic Circle. These and more pocket adventures are a phone call away.

What our clients say about us
This is the first time we went on a trip with Original Travel, a specialist advisor who listens to our expectations, and really the feeling of being pampered from departure to arrival. The concierge service is so efficient that we quickly become addicted.
