Trekking in Peru
If you ask any traveller what their top choice for an inspiring travel experience and most will say that the trekking the Inca trail is right up there on their travel ‘bucket list’. The ancient city of Machu Picchu is set up high in the Andes Mountains in Peru and is an instagrammers dream.
It can take four days’ worth of hiking just to reach Machu Picchu, but when you get there, the views are 100% worth it.
Go wild in Zambia
Do you love wildlife? If you love being on the water, then canoeing the Zambezi River Is most definitely for you. Imagine stopping off from paddling down the river and relaxing by a watering hole where you can watch elephants in their natural habitat?
As well as elephants, you can expect to see hippos, zebras, fish eagles, crocodiles and maybe even the odd lion as you camp on the sandy banks of the Zambezi.
Run the Great Wall of China
If you love marathons, why not take it to the next level and run The Great Wall of China? This spectacular journey will take you through ancient Chinese history, stunning scenery and typical Chinese villages.

Hang out with the polar bears in Canada
If you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a polar bear you can do so on the shores of Hudson Bay in the remote town of Churchill. It is one of the few places where polar bears can be observed in the wild in the form of a walking safari.
