a taste of adventure
There’s more to a summer break than lazing on a sun lounger, as these alternative holiday experiences show…
If you want more from your holiday than siestas and sangria, there are plenty of options to shake things up. Glamping hits new heights at The Bower Treehouse in Somerset, where a luxe wood cabin perches in the branches of remote forestland. Further afield, São
Lourenço do Barrocal in Portugal is a vast working farm where you can indulge in fresh cuisine, reared right before your eyes. The tranquil Masseria Trapanà in Puglia is a food lover’s paradise, featuring the region’s simple yet delicious dishes, plus cookery demonstrations and tastings. For a high-end safari experience, South Africa’s Singita Lebombo Lodge offers an extraordinary close-up of wildlife at Kruger National Park. And for a unique trip any time of year, Deplar Farm in Iceland takes you off-grid for some spectacular skiing, hiking and whale-watching.
