The turn of year brings with it a fresh optimism and often, in response to the grey UK weather, a desire to escape the gloom and head to distant shores.

Long haul adventures in Latin America will provide you with the opportunity to maintain your New Year’s resolutions albeit to be more active, to learn more about different cultures, to sample new cuisine or to challenge yourself.

Why not try our Costa Rica in luxury trip which will introduce you to the delights of this natural paradise, sandwiched between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. You will tour National Parks, explore ‘one of the most biologically intense places on earth’, learn about the country’s culture and wildlife and have plenty of opportunity for walking, diving, kayaking and more.

January is summer in South America and an ideal period of the year to visit to Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. How about combining a few days on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro with a carefully-crafted itinerary taking in the highlights of the fifth largest country in the world? Or enjoy an activity-led trip to Patagonia, the southernmost tip of South America.

A little closer to home, head north to the awe-inspiring land of the Aurora Borealis - Swedish Lapland, northern Norway and the high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Holidays here can be as relaxed or as active as you desire. Try your hand at mushing a team of husky-dogs, learn how to capture the dazzling Northern Lights on camera, stay in sub-zero accommodation at the ICEHOTEL or have an ‘out of this world’ experience in the UFO cabin at the Treehotel.

Another choice is the eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus and the Portuguese regions of the Alentejo and the Algarve, where the mild temperatures are perfect for touring and sightseeing. The beauty of this time of year is that you will avoid the crowds at popular attractions and the calm local lifestyle will allow you to mingle and engage with those who live and work in your destination.
