The Most Inspiring Destinations To Travel To in 2017
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to travel to any country in world, anytime you like? Well sadly for the vast majority of us, this just isn’t possible. Mortgage repayments, school education and all the other realities of life mean that we must work pretty much all year round to pay the bills. So, when you do get the opportunity to take a holiday and travel overseas, naturally you’ll want to travel to a spectacular destination to ensure you make the most of your time away from work. It can be a little overwhelming when faced with the decision of choosing a great holiday destination for you and the family. So to give you a bit of a head start, here’s a few of the most inspiring destinations to travel to in 2017.
Located in the Arctic Circle, Lapland is the largest and most northernmost region in Finland where Santa and his reindeers have occasionally been spotted. While the kids will absolutely love the experience of being closer to Santa (and may even be well-behaved), Lapland is mystical winter wonderland that all the whole family will remember for the rest of their lives. Lapland is also one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, which lights up the sky with an array of different coloured lights more than 200 nights of the year. If you still need a reason to visit Lapland, parents with children can travel free on public transport in most cities. Don’t forget to pack a winter jacket, though!
New Zealand is a small country consisting of two remote islands in the South Pacific Ocean, and while it may not be the most accessible place in the world, it still remains one of the world’s most inspiring tourist destinations. The country has amazing scenery that is home to the most diverse environment in the world, from rainforests and mountains to beautiful beaches, lakes, glaciers and even volcanoes! Remember, The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed here if you want any indication of the natural beauty in this country. The climate is great, the people are friendly and the culture is intriguing, being inhabited by the local ‘Maori’ people since the 18th century. If you’re looking for a safe country where tourists are always welcomed with a smile, then New Zealand is a great option for your next holiday.
If your kids get excited going to the zoo, then they’ll be in for the surprise of their lives when they visit Kenya. Being the birthplace of the safari, Kenya is one of Africa’s most unique and magical locations. The pristine wilderness is home to an abundance of roaming wildlife, from lions, elephants, buffalos, leopards and rhinoceros to the more rare and endangered species you won’t find in many other places. There are also many coastal towns and islands to enjoy after your jungle adventures, where white sandy beaches stretch for miles accompanied by the cool breezes of the Indian Ocean. From Mount Kenya overlooking the Savannah Plains to tropical rainforests with beautiful waterfalls, if you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime, then Kenya is the perfect destination for you.

The combination of modern engineering and spectacular natural surroundings makes for a perfect holiday destination, especially for avid fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.
