Norway, Antarctica, Greece and the UK – four of the hottest destinations on the planet right now. Bentours and Tempo Holidays are ready to help you tick them off your bucket list.
Experience everything the diverse land of Norway has to offer, from majestic mountains to deep fjords, the wild Norwegian Sea and more. Discover the country’s prettiest towns and most dramatic landscapes on an unforgettable scenic rail journey, then be welcomed aboard a Hurtigruten cruise liner for an 11-day coastal cruise through the intricate archipelago of the Lofoten Islands. It’s all part of the Complete Norway tour – and it’s all done in effortless style thanks to Bentours, the Scandinavian and Polar specialists.
To truly experience the UK’s rich history, you must travel beyond the cities. Ancient sites such as Hadrian’s Wall – a Roman fortification stretching 117 kilometres from the River Tyne to the Solway Firth – lie waiting for you in the Yorkshire Dales. And while you’re venturing north through the Lake District, why not cast your eye towards Scotland and Wales, the land of Celtic culture and castles? Some lie in ruins, others have been home to the same family for generations, and some have been transformed into magnificent hotels for you to explore.
Antarctica’s abundance of wildlife and stunning landscapes are simply awe-inspiring. As you cross the Antarctic Circle and approach the shores of the great white continent, the air temperature dips dramatically – but the breathtaking scenery and unique fauna of this frozen wilderness make it all worthwhile. Marvel at some of the highest and most spectacular glacier walls, or be inspired by the Lemaire Channel that is so beautiful it has been dubbed ‘Kodak crack’ by photographers.
If you love history, sunshine, amazing food and classic postcard images of crumbling temple ruins or whitewashed houses with blue shutters, Greece cannot be equalled. Imagine having the chance to explore 4000 years of history at iconic sites such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Then imagine what it must have been like for athletes from a different time, striving for glory at the ancient Olympic Games site at Olympia. Then just lie back and relax by the sea on one of Greece’s stunning islands, contemplating which Mediterranean culinary delight to sample for dinner.
