The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is breath taking to behold – and so is its size and scope. If you have not made it here yet, it’s time to do so. It is the biggest living thing on earth, spanning 2300km, with more than 600 types of coral. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and is visible from space – so we can understand why it’s hard to know where to get started. It does not matter if you want the chill life of soaking up the sun on golden beaches, or if you want to live it large with diving trips and helicopter tours. 

What is the best time to visit?

Like most natural wonders, timing is everything. Although the reef never sleeps – you will be best placed to visit the Great Barrier Reef between May and October when temperatures are still warm enough for swimming, underwater visibility is high with rainfall being minimal.

You can time your Great Barrier Reef holiday for the following:

  • November/December – turtle nesting
  • January-March – turtle hatching
  • July-October – humpback whales
  • June/July – dwarf minke whales

The Rainbow Mountain Trek

Did you know there are 2 different Rainbow mountains in the same region of Peru. One is the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain which is for more experienced & challenging trekkers & the other one is one Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain which is an alternate suitable option for beginners. What makes it difficult is not just the trek but the altitude. Both these mountains are location more than 16,000 ft above sea level. However, this experience is a bucket list for every adventure seeker & should not be missed while in Peru. 

The best time to visit the mountains would be in the dry season which is usually May to September. However, having said that it doesn’t mean it’s perfect then, it may still rain or become cloudy. You got to have your luck! If you’re visiting the Palccoyo Mountain, we highly recommend a stop at the Red river. This tour is availed from the popular city of Cusco.

Add on experiences:

  • Machu Picchu overnight excursion by Vistadome train
  • Cusco Art & Wine tour
  • Overnight experience at Sky Lodge
  • Humantay Lake & Ruins trek

Lavender Fields In France

Every time someone says France, people think of the most iconic Eiffel tower. However, Paris is not the only city to visit. Gradually becoming popular, the lavender fields in France are one of its kind. It is absolutely amazing to see vast fields set around the Aix-en-Provence region of France spreading over 300 miles square miles & France being the most famous country for Lavender fields!

Best time to Visit is from June 3 rd week to mid-July, however, it may vary year to year. You can visit during the daytime when the sun is shining but it may get quite hot or try to catch a good sunset & also avoid the crowds. The best city to stay for making a visit would be Marseille as you can then enjoy other attractions too. However, the whole French Riviera is beautiful & we suggest at-least a week to be spent in the region covering neighboring cities of Nice, Menton, Cannes etc.

Add-on Experiences:

  • A photo session in the Lavender fields
  • L’Occitane Factory visit in Aix-en-Provence
  • Boat tour in Parc National des Calanques
  • Segway/Bike tour around Marseille
