What adventure travel is trending for 2021

Travel has been non-existing during the pandemic but forward bookings give us a look into what adventure holidays people are booking for 2021 and beyond.

1) Bigger ticket trips

During the pandemic people sat on their money - there were fewer places to spend cash and people were making sure they had an emergency fund. Now that the end is in sight, travellers are looking at their holiday budgets and combining their funds earmarked for 2020 and 2021 into one big holiday. African safaris, Galapagos cruises, polar expedition cruises and trips to Central Asia and Japan are proving to be popular.

2) Summer and fall trips

With vaccines being rolled out across North America and Europe this spring and summer, travellers are booking some time out. New bookings are coming in for summer, fall and winter with Turkey, Morocco, Egypt and Jordan leading the pack.

The best places to travel in summer are in Europe and Latin America, while in the fall southern Europe, the Middle East, East and Southern Africa, India, Sri Lanka, the Himalaya, South East Asia, Central Asia and East Asia are great places to travel. If you plan to travel in winter, look at Patagonia, Australia and New Zealand, Central America, India, Sri Lanka and South East Asia.
