The latest travel trends worth trying

The latest travel trends worth trying

Ride a bike

Cycling-based tour operators are reporting a 25-30% increase in demand, thanks to travellers’ desires to stay active and eco-friendly on their getaways.

Take all the generations along

Cruise lines specialise in multi-generational travel. Climb aboard and watch a poolside movie on a 28m2 screen while the kids practise downward-dog in a youth-focused yoga programme.

Step inside your favourite story

Now you can follow in the footsteps of your favourite onscreen characters. Several Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle in Berkshire, UK, is pictured above) and Game of Thrones packages were launched in 2013, while searches for hotels in Las Vegas rose by 159% following the release of The Hangover Part III, according to hotels.com.

Track your genealogy

Relax and find your roots with genealogy tourism: a trip with a twist of uncovering your past. Each year, thousands of people in search of ancestral adventure plan trips to Europe, and beyond.
