A strong trend for travellers choosing the autumn
To avoid an autumnal slump, Exodus Travels is seeing a strong trend for travellers choosing the autumn for their adventure. After a summer of these proportions, it’s no surprise Exodus Travels is seeing this desire for the good times to keep on coming.
Discover Sri Lanka
If you’re looking to extend your summer and seek out even more long sunny days, then Exodus Travels’ top recommendation is to head towards Asia for your October and November top up. With a consistent climate and average annual temperatures of 32ºC in the lowlands and 21ºC in the mountains, Sri Lanka is known for its tropical paradise feel. This island is blessed with white sand beaches, humid tea plantations and palm trees galore. In fact, its natural beauty is rivaled only by the culture; expect brightly colored reclining Buddhas, cool cave temples and imposing rock fortresses overlooking the beautiful landscapes.
Walking the Greek Islands
If you’ve been craving some culture all summer but can’t bear to feel trapped inside an overbearingly hot museum building, then Exodus Travels knows how you feel. The good news is it isn’t a one-the-other choice. Forgo the stuffy museums and head to the Greek Islands where the history is all around you, where you can immerse yourself in an ancient world whilst active and outdoors. On foot is the best way to traverse these treasures, a stroll through an open-air museum of ancient ruins and long-lost temples. There are no queues, no school trips to contend with – just blue skies, coastal views and a history that stretches back to the Roman times.
Alpine Cols of the Tour de France
If it’s the summer of sport that’s got you galvanized and ready to go, then let the inspirational tale of Geraint Thomas spur you on to the cols of the Tour de France. Thomas cuts an impressive figure – an inspirational individual who shows that with the right attitude and the right friends, anything is possible. And whilst you certainly don’t have to take on the actual routes he did to enjoy an amazing cycling holiday this autumn, the choice is there for those who do. You too could take on the iconic hairpins on Alpe d’Huez where Thomas’ stage win became the game-changing moment. Or you could conquer the world-renowned Col du Tourmalet that dominated Stage 18 and where Thomas cemented his place in the yellow jersey.
Natural Highlights of Costa Rica
If you’re looking to get away to see nature’s best, autumn is a great season to do it. For starters, September and October are your best chance to see Green turtles during nesting season. On the shores of tropical Costa Rica, you’ll see these wonderful creatures prepare for a new generation. Green turtles are amongst the largest of all the sea turtles, but they are far from Costa Rica’s only draw: this ecological paradise is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, with innumerable endemic species contained within its rainforests, cloud forests, beaches and wild places.
