The outdoors has always been a captivating entity for adventurers the world over. There’s simply nothing like lacing up your walking boots or gearing up for your next cycle and heading out the door in search of somewhere and something totally new.
But countless adventurers in every country don’t have that option at the moment. Instead, they’re adapting to a more enclosed lifestyle, waiting for the day these spectacular locations open up for business again.
At Whereabouts Holidays we’ve been sending eager adventurers to some of these locations for years, so we like to think we know a thing or two about adventure!
