Canada

If you are the city type then you will love Vancouver and Toronto, huge cities with rich diversity, a wide range of cultures and regarding the latter, one of the most amazing natural wonders in the World, Niagara Falls. For those looking for peace and tranquility then you will be right at home in the Rockies, huge natural lakes, stunning scenery and hidden away towns. For something different this year, head to Canada for your next holiday.

Mexico

Mexico does not get the attention that it deserves when it comes to being a tourist destination, everyone knows about Cabos and Cancun but the all-inclusive nature of this country should be far more widely known. Mexico pretty much has it all, you can go skiing in Coahuila, relax on the beach in Acapulco, head into the jungle in Chiapas or experience one of the most happening cities in the World right now in Mexico City. One thing that you need to bear in mind if a trip to Mexico is in your plans, the country is huge and if you want to hit a few places then you’re going to need to take some flights, the good news is that domestic flying in the country is very cheap.

Iceland

Right up near the arctic circle is the stunning country Iceland, a nation which has been slowly growing in tourism figures over the last decade as more and more people look to enjoy the natural splendor that the country has. From mountain scenery with free-flowing waterfalls, large areas of untouched land and space, clean air, active volcanoes and of course, the incredible, dancing Northern Lights, this country is where nature shows off what it has to offer. It is not all caves and mountains in Iceland however and despite having so many remote areas, the country is incredible advanced and has cities like Reykjavik, a bustling capital that is jam packed with historical museums and futuristic building designs. This is a beautiful country which will give you one of the best vacations of your life and you better get in quick before everybody wants to go to Iceland on vacation, one more thing, wrap up, this place is very, very cold.
