2021 Hot Destinations

Updated: 7 days ago

Keep dreaming of travel with some of these hot destination and LGBTQ trip ideas!


2020 has been quite the year - the great year of a global pause. The upside of this is it has given us all the time to reflect and make travel even better. As our world slowly and carefully reopens what we once knew as travel will have been transformed into a new experience. We can expect the travel process will be more complicated and working with a travel advisor will be important to navigate some of these new health and safety measures.


Having a good understanding of your travel insurance and what the policy protects you from and more important understanding all of the exclusions. Downloading various contact tracing travel apps and possibly having a digital health certificate to validate your eligibility to travel will all be new. However, many of these items are still in development and changing on a daily basis.


So now is the time to continue to dream of all the places you want to visit and start formulating a plan on achieving your travel goals. Here are some of my predictions of which destinations will open first and my recommendations of what to experience.


Safe Social Distancing = Small Group Travel

As we head into the third and fourth quarter of 2020 safe social distancing will still be very much front and centre around the world. Limiting your exposure to groups less than fifty people is what many of the Health Authorities are recommending. Trip Ideas:

  • Go RVing - hit the road and explore some of the beautiful outdoors in the comfort of your own motorhome. We can help you get set up and draw up an itinerary with camping reservations.

  • Explore the coast by Kayak - we have a couple overnight kayak trips out of Tofino and Ucluelet

  • Cycling trips - we work with various cycling tour partners that will be able to put a trip together for you, either on your own or join a small group.

  • Self sailing trip - renting a small boat to explore eastern Canada's 1000 Islands, Europe's canals and river-ways.

  • Many of the European and Asian River cruises are also a good choice - most of the ships have a capacity of under 150 passengers. We are likely to see the ships coordinating with the local towns and ports to ensure they are the only ship in the area at a time helping to reduce the volume of people we saw in the past.

  • Small ships and yachts are another good choice if you are interested in more of a traditional ocean cruise. Partners such as Azamara, Hurtigruten, Ponant, Silversea, Seabourn, and Windstar all with capacity of under 350 passengers.
