The world is full of beautiful places to travel to, including many secluded areas that we may not even know to exist. But with so many countries to choose from, ticking off every place could take a lifetime. From tiger spotting and white rater rafting in Nepal to glacier snowmobiling and Northern Lights chasing in Iceland, our curated list of TRIPS by Culture Trip is sure to give you a helping hand, enabling you to visit an array of extraordinary destinations without having to worry about planning an itinerary yourself.
1. Nepal, for rickshaw riding, white-water rafting and tiger spotting
Among many natural and cultural treasures, Nepal is beloved for its serene Himalayan landscapes, home to the world’s highest mountain, as well as seven other peaks exceeding 8,000m (26,246ft) altitude. While you won’t be climbing Mont Everest on this 11-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour, you will meet one of its summiteers, who will give you a first-hand account of what it’s like. There are also plenty of opportunities to experience the great outdoors yourself – from wild camping and white-water rafting along the Seti River to embark on a wildlife safari in Chitwan National Park. You’ll also explore the capital, Kathmandu, glide across Phewa Lake on a rowing boat and enjoy a sunset yoga class at a hilltop retreat in Sarangkot – with magnificent views of the snow-capped Annapurna mountains in the distance.

2. The Galápagos Islands, for extraordinary wildlife on land and at sea

With its otherworldly landscapes and an extraordinary array of wildlife, the Galápagos Islands, without doubt, contain some of the most beautiful places to travel in the world. Giant tortoises are just one of the endemic species that live here – and you can see them roaming in the wild in the Santa Cruz highlands on our TRIPS by Culture Trip five-day adventure. You’ll also encounter an abundance of sea lions, marine iguanas and magnificent frigatebirds on San Cristóbal and have a chance to spot white-tipped reef sharks as you kayak or stand up paddleboard in the Itabaca Channel. An optional snorkeling or scuba diving trip to Kicker Rock – where eagle rays, sea turtles and Galápagos sharks are among the rich marine life – is an unforgettable experience.

3. Jordan, for desert camping, mountain hiking and ancient history
Hellenistic architecture and endless undulations of rust-coloured mountains make Petra one of western Asia’s most impressive sites – but it’s by no means all that Jordan has to offer. From eating piping hot falafel and silky hummus on a street food tour of Amman to hiking through the dramatic, rocky landscapes of the Shaq al Reesh trail, this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour will allow you to get under the skin of this remarkable country. Explore the capital’s ancient archaeological sites before cooking and camping at a Bedouin settlement in the desert. Avoid the crowds of Petra by entering through the back door entrance, climbing Mount Haron at sunrise and hiking through the lunar-like Wadi Rum valley – before snorkelling in the Dead Sea off the coast of Aqaba. A chance to soak in the Dead Sea and bathe yourself in mineral-rich mud is the perfect way to top off your adventure.

4. Iceland, for glacier snowmobiling, hot springs and the Northern Lights
Full of awe-inspiring glaciers, black sand beaches and volcanic lagoons, Iceland’s landscapes are like nothing else on earth. It would be impossible to take in the full extent of its beauty in a single trip, but this five-day TRIPS by Culture Trip adventure will give you a thrilling snapshot of this majestic Nordic nation. Live out your Lord of the Rings fantasies while discovering gigantic waterfalls, cruise across a glacier on a snowmobile and soak in natural geothermal springs – while trying to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights dancing across the night sky. Add a private Jeep tour of the Golden Circle, a visit to a geothermal bakery and a trip to the Blue Lagoon to the mix and it’s an adventure you won’t want to come to an end.

5. Vietnam, for sumptuous food and fascinating cities
Few countries can rival the pulsating cities, vibrant cuisine and incredible scenery of Vietnam – and our TRIPS by Culture Trip 12-day tour helps you experience it to the fullest. Starting in the vibrant capital, Hanoi, you’ll journey north to the rural district of Mai Chau. Lined with rice paddies and sandwiched between forested mountains, it’s a serene spot – overlooked by many travellers. Other notable highlights include a luxury overnight cruise to Lan Ha Bay – a quieter but similarly idyllic alternative to Ha Long Bay – a Vietnamese cooking class and street food tour in Hue and exploring the lantern-lit streets, historical landmarks and labyrinthine canals of Hoi An.
