Where to go

Shipwreck at Skeleton Coast

Skeleton Coast

A flying safari along the Skeleton Coast takes in some of the most remote wilderness areas of Namibia, and this remains one of Original Travel’s favourite African experiences.

Angkor Wat - Siem Reap

Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

Spend time exploring the galleries and workshops of Siem Reap before the highlight; the awe-inspiring temples of the Angkor site.

Seat with a view

Rajasthan & Agra

Visit evocative cities such as Jodphur and Jaipur and the iconic Taj Mahal, alongside enjoying a slower pace of life in the villages of Rural Rajasthan.

Rwanda Baby Chimpanzee

Parc National des Volcans

Gorilla trekking is a key attraction in Rwanda but there are plenty more besides.

Svalbard Vista

Svalbard

Deep inside the Arctic Circle, this archipelago of Norwegian islands is remote, wild and completely beautiful.

Colourful lizard in Madagascar

Madagascar

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

Small Flower and Leaf

The Pantanal

In the centre of South America lies the largest inland delta in the world, the Pantanal, or flooded outback, in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso.

Japanese Parasol

Japan

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

Penguins, Antarctica

Antarctica

Stat alert. Antarctica’s massive ice-cap covers an area 1.7 times the size of Australia and contains some 29 million cubic kilometres of ice, or roughly 70% of the world's fresh water.

A Sally Lightfoot Crab

Galapagos Archipelago

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

Lago Argentino

Southern Patagonia

Head as far south as you can to witness Argentina's extraordinary glaciers, mountains and rugged scenery.

Swedish Lapland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, the extraordinary natural light show that occurs in the depths of winter.

Trekking Holidays: The Kilimanjaro Climb Adventure

Trekking Holidays: The Kilimanjaro Climb Adventure

Rising from the plains of northern Tanzania close to the Kenyan border, Mt Kilimanjaro dominates the surrounding landscape and on a clear day can be seen from almost one hundred miles away.

The Haute Route

The Haute Route

The most rewarding way to explore the Mont-Blanc massif is by ski-mountaineering, an exhilarating combination of ascent right into the heart of the Alps, followed by a liberating descent in totally untouched powder.

Huskies, Swedish Lapland

Dog Sledding in Swedish Lapland

Dog-sledding through the snowbound forests and mountains of Swedish Lapland will leave even the hardiest ‘been there, done that’ traveller with an indelible memory.

Petra, Jordan

Petra was carved from pink sandstone cliffs by the Nabataeans some two millennia ago, and left undisturbed until its rediscovery in 1812.
