28 Sep EJ’s Handpicked Travel Experiences for 2019
Instead of merely listing destinations for this piece, I wanted to take it a little further and round up the ultimate experiences you can have abroad in 2019. Check out some unique ways to visit these top destinations.
Witness ‘Polar Bear Season’ in Canada. The long-awaited migration of these great white creatures over icy rivers and across the subarctic plains gives travelers an up-close look at arctic life and an exciting glimpse into their world. Stay at a cozy lodge to hear wildlife stories from the locals by a crackling fire.
Ride the Grand Hibernian train through Ireland. Let yourself be captivated by the charms of the Emerald Isle as you journey in peerless luxury. Enjoy the train’s variety of stops including a whiskey making (and tasting) tour, an interactive falconry experience, and a private visit to The Titanic Experience.
Visit volcanically-heated hot springs in Costa Rica. Then cool off with a zip line through the misty rainforest canopies. Gain a true appreciation for Planet Earth by exploring the regions fascinating ecosystems and wildlife with an expert naturalist.
Take a Barge Cruise through France. Not to be confused for river cruising, a barge is like a floating country inn with gourmet food and wine and has the ability to get closer to your destinations than a river cruise. Imagine floating down the Alsace Region with 8 to 12 of your favorite people on your own barge!
