Top Destinations for 2021/2022

2020 will forever be the Year of Lockdown, the year our holiday plans were cancelled or put on hold, and nothing got ticked off our travel bucket lists. Nevertheless, we must look forward to a time when travel restrictions will be lifted, and travel to all the amazing places the world has to offer will once again be possible.

For those ready and raring to have something to look forward to in 2021 or 2022, we’ve listed our shortlist of the top destinations to get you inspired. (TOP TIP: Please make sure you check the FCDO’S travel advice before booking or travelling.)


According to Condé Nast Traveller, Slovenia is the number one up-and-coming destination for 2021. Why should you travel there? Well, firstly it is nestled between Croatia and Italy, and the scenery lives up to the standard set by its beautiful neighbours. Secondly, after being named the European Region of Gastronomy for 2021, it is the perfect place for foodie lovers to visit. Need we say more?



In recent years the Finnish Government has heavily invested in arts and culture, making Helsinki the perfect place for your next city break. Make sure you check out Amos Rex, the newest art museum, plus the Finnish National Gallery. There are also a number of outdoor events and pop up museums planned during the warmer months.


Dominican Republic

If you really want to shake off the lockdown shackles, then a Caribbean paradise will offer you the perfect change of scenery. There are a whole host of eco-friendly options, which will allow you access to miles of glorious beaches, wellness retreats, beautiful lagoons and humpback whale-watching (that’s got to be worth at least a few ticks on the travel bucket list, right?).


United Kingdom

If there’s one positive we can take from the UK closing its borders, it’s that it made us realise just how many amazing places are on offer right on our doorstep for the perfect staycation. Why spend time trekking through passport control and waiting for luggage when you could hop in your car or on a train, and reach any number of incredible destinations within a couple of hours? We can’t list them all, so start researching now!



An oldie, but a goodie. Spain is consistently one of the most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Whether you visit the mainland or one of the Spanish Islands, you’ll be rewarded with a variety of landscapes, warm culture, delicious food and drink, plus much more. If you want to experience something different, head for some of the less touristy parts of Spain, to discover what it really has to offer.
