A survey in June by Virtuoso unveiled this summer’s must- visit recommendations from professional travel advisors. The love for Europe endures and it factors prominently on the list due to interest in cultural trips. This summer has been the ideal time to venture to the continent due to the low euro.
TOPPING TRAVELLERS’ WISH LISTS THIS SUMMER:
• A river cruise down the Danube where tucked-away villages and historic highlights converge in countries such as Hungary, Austria and Germany
• Portugal, a less crowded and more affordable option than other Western European destinations
• Iceland, an emerging destination popular for its adventure and family travel opportunities
• Peru’s Andean Explorer, the new luxury train
• Ottawa, Canada’s capital, to celebrate the country’s 150th birthday
• The Galapagos Islands, especially for trips with kids
Speaking of islands, in this edition’s “elite travel trends” section, we take a peek at some of the hottest spots to watch when it comes to private island retreats!
