Winter is Coming! Holiday Destinations For Nature Lovers


One of the best reasons to go on holiday is to get away from the never-ending pressures of your everyday life. Retreating to an entirely new environment can be invigorating and rejuvenating for the mind and body. If you live in an urban area, a nature holiday is a perfect retreat for you. Whether you’re chilled out in your surroundings, or you decide to be more active during your time away, you will return from your holiday refreshed, and ready to take on the city.

Galapagos Islands

Animal lovers and biologists alike will have a fun and engaging time in the Galapagos Islands.

It’s easy to see why the most famous visitor, Charles Darwin, began to form his theory of evolution on these islands; you will not find a more biologically diverse area anywhere else on the planet. The birds and animals here are not something you will encounter anywhere else. Be sure to charge your camera before you arrive.


Volunteer in Thailand

If you’re looking for a more hands-on holiday, you can give back to another community by volunteering. Elephants in Thailand are often horribly abused in the tourist industry, so there are charities involved in rescuing them and giving them a better life. You could be one of the volunteers helping to rehabilitate these magnificent animals, and teaching the elephant keepers to establish an alternative livelihood. This is just one of the many volunteering opportunities available abroad, so finding something relevant to your interests should be easy.

Nature villages

The picturesque village of Mawlynnong in Meghalaya has been hailed as “The Cleanest Village in Asia” by international powers that be. It is strange, but a well-deserved title. The village has organized pits for organic and inorganic wastes, maintained public utilities, and scattered bamboo dustbins that will put even the best of urban cities to shame. The best way to experience life in this village is to book accommodation in one of the bamboo guest houses. You will wake up and be surrounded by nature, and take part in keeping nature unspoiled. You will never look at urban life the same way again.

Whale watching

Whether you got to Mexico, Italy, Norway, or Iceland, you might be lucky enough to be in town in time to catch sight of the whales breaching the ocean’s surface. The best part about this activity is that it’s completely observational, so you won’t be disturbing the whales or causing them any distress. Just relax on your boat, and take plenty of pictures of these ocean giants.

Walk an iconic trail

Walking isn’t just good for your body; it’s good for your breathing, and it can greatly improve your mood. With that in mind, why not make your walks a little more interesting by trekking an iconic trail. If you’re a history buff, you can book a trip to walk across the Great Wall of China, or hike the Inca Trail and see Machu Picchu before the tourists arrive.
