the perfect time to book a holiday is now!
Are you looking to shake off the January blues? For many of us, now is the perfect time to book a holiday, giving us something to look forward to during the colder winter months. If you’re looking to switch things up from the typical beach holiday, here are some different holidays that you could consider:
As a result of the pandemic, staycations have seen a surge in popularity over the last couple of years. There are lots of benefits to opting for a staycation, including easier travel options and no language barrier. Staycations can be particularly good for large groups as it removes the stress of organising the flying logistics for a large number of people. You don’t even need to leave Yorkshire to visit wonderful places and make fantastic memories!
Something often overlooked when considering holidays is activity-based holidays. When thinking of an active holiday, lots of us envisage abseiling down a cliff face or running through the Sahara, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Cycling holidays are a fantastic option if you’re looking to fully immerse yourself in a country, whilst also remaining active. Cycling from place to place allows you to take in your surroundings, and there are different options available to suit a wide range of abilities and fitness levels.
There is a misconception that skiing holidays are only for people who have been skiing since before they could walk; this is not the case. A skiing holiday, whether it’s your first or fifteenth can be great fun. Combining skiing with the party side of après, these holidays are popular for a reason. If you want a jam-packed vacation that also offers the option for downtime, then this could be the perfect choice for you this year.
Camping often gets a bad rap, with many writing it off after completing Duke of Edinburgh at school or going to one too many questionable festivals. However, camping doesn’t have to be all pot noodles and trekking miles to a communal toilet block. Campsites have come a long way, meaning you can now enjoy all the benefits of a camping holiday, such as being close to nature and switching off from technology, without having to sacrifice your privacy or sanity. A well-planned camping trip can make a great holiday.
If you’re looking for something more luxurious and slower-paced, then a spa holiday might be right up your street. Choosing to stay at a spa resort is a good way to ensure you unwind on your holiday. You will be able to book various treatments such as massages or facials to suit your individual needs and based on what you’ll enjoy. Many spa resorts also have fitness facilities, this could be worth checking if you’re also interested in exercising whilst on holiday.
With any holiday, it is always handy to read reviews from previous holiday goers to gain better insight into whether certain locations or holiday types will work for you and what to expect once you arrive.
