Travel ideas in June
June marks the start of summer in Europe, schools are not quite out yet, so it couldn’t be a better time to beat the crowds to some of the world's most popular destinations. From a Safari in Kenya, to exploring the Inca Trails in Peru to trekking along the Albanian mountains, our local experts name their top destinations for a holiday in June.
Explore ancient Fortresses in Georgia
The Georgian summer starts mid-May, so June is generally warm and sunny, but not too hot for day excursions. Our local agents suggest a day trip to the ancient Rabat Fortress and Vardzia Cave Town; exploring this ancient town set into a dramatic cliff face is an unforgettable experience. Other highlights include wine-tasting from one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, Kakheti and trekking across the Caucasus mountains.
Safari in Kenya
June is the beginning of the dry season in Eastern Africa, which means it is the best time for a Safari in Kenya! Get up and close to Africa’s big cats, elephants and giraffes at the Masai Mara Reserve. Watch flamingos take flight at Lake Nakuru and hippos at Lake Nakuru. For all hiking fans, Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa, offering incredible views of the surrounding valleys and glaciers.
Life's a Carnival in Peru
Peru is a vibrant country, with dramatic sand dunes, mountains, Inca Trails, lost civilisations, and colorful festivals. With all this, there is plenty to explore. June marks the beginning of the dry season in the main highlands and the rainforest, providing the ideal weather for trekking. Our local agents recommend two memorable hikes in the Colca Canyon and in the heart of the Andes Mountains. June also marks the much-awaited festival season. Celebrate Peruvian heritage with the locals by watching the brass bands, swirling parades and ancient icons brought through the streets.
Trekking in the Albanian Mountains
A destination far from the well trodden tourist path, Albania offers vast mountain ranges, forgotten archeology sites, and beaches to rival anywhere else along the mediterranean. June is just before peak season (July- August) giving you the chance to enjoy gorgeous landscapes on your own, with perfect weather. Our local tours offer a blend of city and wilderness exploration, with a visit to Tirana city, a crossing through the Valbona valley and a relaxing retreat on the shores of the Albanian Riviera.
Looking for a two-week tour to Costa Rica in June for the family? Or perhaps an adventure tour of Cuba for two? Our local agents live in their destination, so they can give you the best advice on when to visit their country and help you to organise the dream holiday, tailor-made to your needs!
