Let’s face it, 2020 hasn’t really been able to deliver on the travel stakes. While we all went into the year full of hopes, dreams, and plans to see the world, the pandemic got in the way. Yet this doesn’t mean you can’t plan for the future. With hopes of a vaccine, travel is looking more likely to be able to start up again and when it does, you want to be ready. There are so many types of holiday out there, you don’t need to just sit on a beach in an all-inclusive (but if that is your thing, then go for it!) Think carefully about exactly what you want to get out of your holiday, is it a culturally rich experience? A chance to relax? To do some yoga perhaps? Or to tick some adrenaline-pumping experiences off your bucket list? No matter what it is, be sure to do your research, plan well ahead and don’t forget to take out travel insurance. Here are five different types of holiday to consider for 2021…
A Skiing Holiday
A ski holiday is a fantastic way to get away, whether with your other half, your family or a group of friends. It has everything you could need for a break away, from learning a new skill to seeing some of the most breathtaking scenery you will ever get the chance to lay your eyes on. It is a holiday that is great for your health – nothing can beat the feeling as you whiz down the slopes, feeling the adrenaline rush and also taking in the sight around you. You will get the chance to experience something new as well as many great photo opportunities. Don’t forget to look at the apres-ski parties too!

A secluded beach break
Let’s face it, this year hasn’t been a very relaxing one. If you are looking for a trip to completely switch off and relax then a secluded beach break is the one for you. It is a great chance to switch yourself off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and stresses and just relax and rejuvenate. There are so many countries with stunning beaches that you can head to, from the Caribbean to a plethora of European destinations. Be sure to do your research before you go and find out about the beach, if it is popular with tourists or a bit quieter. You don’t want to go somewhere expecting peace and quiet only to find it jam-packed every day.
A yoga retreat
If you are looking to relax, unwind and get fit at the same time, why not consider a yoga retreat? There are many yoga retreats around the globe, all offering different experiences and different types of yoga. On the trip you will get to improve your yoga practice and get inspired by other fellow yogis, as well as get to know those with similar interests to you. It is also a great way to relax, and as many retreats offer extras such as massages, yoga therapy, sound baths and more, you will have so many opportunities to connect with yourself. Many yoga retreats have time for you to go and explore the surrounding area, so try and book it somewhere you have always wanted to go such as Bali.
A hiking holiday
If you love going on walks, why not make it into a holiday? A walking holiday is a great way to get away from it all while also doing something you love and getting a bit of exercise too! A walking holiday is great to get the whole family involved and you can all see incredible sights, views and new places together – don’t forget to bring a camera! You can choose how far you walk and plan your routes. It will also enable you to return home fitter than when you left, spend some quality time together without the distraction of screens and get some healthy fresh air.
A safari experience
A safari holiday is a real once in a lifetime trip that you don’t want to miss out on. A safari enables you to go on the adventure of a lifetime, where you can explore somewhere completely new and get up close and personal with some of the most incredible animals on the planet. You will get the chance to sleep out under the stars, become one with nature and experience things you never dreamt of. There are a few different types of safari holiday, so make sure you look them up and find the one that is best for you. It is also a great honeymoon option and something to tick off your bucket list!
These are just a few different types of holiday that you can consider for 2021.
