How would you use five days of PTO or annual leave? Would you eat your way through the streets of New Orleans with Cajun and Creole flavours dancing on your tongue? Hike through the frozen wilderness of Iceland without stopping to look at the clock? Set your watch to turtle time and spy giant Galápagos tortoises lurching along the sand? Use the time as you please; these top TRIPS by Culture Trip give you up to five days of pure awesomeness.
1 . Escape to Iceland’s Frozen Wilderness

Five days is just enough to explore the Land of Ice and Fire, time for you to fully appreciate its gargantuan glaciers and volcanic views. If that doesn’t sound like a great way to spend a workweek, let us tempt you further: the famed Golden Circle, home to Iceland’s Thingvellir National Park, is yours to explore on a private super jeep journey. Hikes behind waterfalls lift the lid further on this exciting country, while a relaxing soak in the dreamy Blue Lagoon will soothe aching limbs.

4 . All That Jazz: a Musical and Food-Filled Tour of New Orleans

A city high on most music and food lovers’ bucket lists, New Orleans bursts with entertainment all year round – and particularly in February, when it celebrates Mardi Gras, and May when the Nola Jazz Festival begins. No matter when you visit, on this five-day trip you’ll catch an exclusive live jazz performance at the fabled Preservation Hall, shake it up with a classic Nola cocktail class, and take an enthralling guided walk through the French Quarter – the city’s oldest neighbourhood. There’s also a chance to kayak through the swampy Louisiana bayous.

5 . Snowshoeing and Dog Sledding in a Scottish Winter Wonderland

If you’re looking for a mini winter break in the UK, the soaring Scottish Highlands have plenty to offer in the space of five days. On this trip to Glencoe Mountain Resort, you’ll snowshoe your way to a cosy mountain lodge for lunch, and embrace the region’s serene beauty by dog sled. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights after warming the cockles with hot chocolate at an award-winning artisan chocolatier.
