Holidays To Take When You Really Need A Quick Break

February 27, 2019 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

The idea of chasing the sun and travelling forever is a faraway dream for many. With most of us confined to the realities of four weeks annual leave a year, we’ve put together a range of short breaks to make the most of your time off! Pack your bags and just show up, we’ll take care of the rest.

Always wanted to tick a traditional Oktoberfest off your bucket list? Do it in just 5 days on the Oktoberfest Hotel itinerary. Starting and ending in Munich, Germany’s Oktoberfest offers you 14 main tents of partying, the largest holding up to 11,000 people. Prost, pork, playgrounds of amusement rides – this is a festival like no other. Crash out each night in the comfort of a hotel and use your recovery time wisely by choosing from one of the additional activities on offer to take advantage of while in Munich.

If you like your getaways just a little more action packed, hit the slopes in NZ for 7 days of high octane fun in the snow on the Ultimate NZ Ski. Queenstown is the perfect playground whether you’re a pro or a beginner on the slopes and a stunning background for your après-ski.

Your Thai trip doesn’t have to look like the deleted scenes from The Hangover, take the slow route on the 7 day Northern Thai Highlights and see another side of Thailand. Explore the temples in Chang Mai, stay overnight in a jungle hotel and learn how to whip up an authentic Pad Thai faster than you can get one delivered.

Explore the diverse waters of Galapagos, this island is home to a bevy of creatures, some found nowhere else in the world. This mysterious archipelago of volcanic islands is part of Ecuador and a must do for any David Attenborough and wildlife fan. Picture seal pups jumping over you while you cruise by in your zodiac, iguanas, sea lions, giant tortoises wander past you.  Discover the secret of the island on the 6-day Galapagos Island Hopper.
