Africa is an amazing continent with a vast array of wonderful and fascinating countries to visit. There is the stark beauty of South Africa with its amazing animal safari parks, dramatic coastlines, golden beaches and lofty mountains plus there is the history and diverse culture. A visit here is truly to experience a world in one country.
And it’s so easy to take a diversion to Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia, each country with its own individual attractions – from first class game parks to the magnificent Victoria Falls.
East Africa is a dream come true for animal enthusiasts. Both Kenya and Tanzania are teeming with wildlife on their savannah grassland plains. Snow-clad peaks such as Mount Kilimanjaro add to the landscape as do the beach resorts on the Indian Ocean. Uganda and Rwanda also have their share of animals including the mighty Gorilla.
Amidst the solitude of Antarctica, adventurous travellers can discover an ethereal landscape that lingers in the memory. Very few have ventured onto this appealingly inaccessible continent but those who have rave about the privilege of gazing upon towering mountains, bulky glaciers and luminous, dreamlike icebergs. Perhaps more than anywhere else, Antarctica reminds those who visit it of the awesome (and savage) power of nature.
Antarctica is welcoming more tourist-orientated cruises and ferries to the region every year, and facilities are continually developing, with more accommodation, culinary and travel options available. There is now ample opportunity to ascend Mount Erebus, the southernmost active volcano on Earth; to fly via helicopter or venture by boat to penguin colonies; and to really make the most of a terrain that teems with wildlife, with a multitude of birds, seals, albatrosses and enormous whales; and so on.
At one time, the Arctic was a place of interest only for explorers and traders but now, it is available for lovers of nature and today’s traveller. Goway’s Arctic encompasses the countries of Greenland and Canada, compatible neighbours offering insight into not only the terrain but the way of life which exists here. Despite its short season for viewing and visiting, this “Last Frontier” is a must for the curious adventurer.
When travelling to Asia, the big decison to make is which country to visit. So many countries with so many reasons to visit. Of course, there are marked differences between destinations and yet they all have the allure of the exotic.
China is a major destination with much more to offer than just the Great Wall or the Yangtze River, although they are reasons enough to head there. India has been honoured with the description of the “most colourful country anywhere” and that’s not just because of the famed Taj Mahal.
South East Asia has a different feel. The smiling and gentle people of places such as Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia and the Philippines make a stay in any one of them worthwhile but then each has its own “list’ of attractions.
Is it a continent or an island? Either way, Australia is both offering an abundance of reasons to visit. You name it, it’s probably there. Starting with nature, there is red desert, coral reefs, snow-clad mountains, wetlands, wine lands, national parks and much more. Then there are the cities, each with their own individual character. And bear in mind, Australia was once a penal colony – perhaps the convicts gave the Aussies their unique humour! Indigenous wildlife? Kangaroos, koalas, kookaburras abound. And every major city has its excellent selection of art galleries and museums. So nature, plus culture, plus urban attractions, equals a great selection of Australia tours to choose from.
Close by, New Zealand is a land of natural wonder with its spectacular mountains, active volcanoes, majestic fiords, picturesque lakes, bubbling hot springs, great beaches and rugged coastline. All of these ingreditents are packed into two relatively small islands and can be seen and experienced while on your New Zealand vacation.
Starting with South America, a huge continent with many countries offering a variety of reasons to visit, one discovers historical relics, architectural and natural wonders, a diverse range of cuisines and cultures, vibrant and colourful cities, stunning landscapes and a mix of peoples, culturally, ethnically and racially.
Let’s consider a short list of some of the major attractions. There is the mysterious Inca site of Machu Picchu and the colonial city of Cusco, once the capital of the Inca civilization in Peru. There is the lush and exciting Amazon rainforest in Brazil and Ecuador; the majesty of the enormous Iguassu and Angel waterfalls, the former in Argentina and Brazil and the latter in Venezuela.
Continuing on, there is the pulsating Samba rhythms and fabulous beaches of Rio de Janeiro and the mysticism of Salvador in Brazil; the sophistication of Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, known as the “Paris of South America”; the vast expanses and startling beauty of Patagonia and the excellent wine regions in both Argentina and Chile. The highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca stretching across the borders of Peru and Bolivia; the incomparable Galapagos Islands with their unique animal and marine life and finally, that magnificent dominating mountain chain that runs through the complete continent from north to south, the Andes. The list goes on and on.
UK & Europe offers so much to excite the imagination with its variety of cultures, nations and varied geographical terrain. Although it is the world’s smallest continent in land surface, there is so much to see and do. Goway’s Europe offers in excess of 30 different countries each with its own unique character and attractions. You can take well planned escorted itineraries which are offered in many countries from Ireland to Iceland. You can travel on luxurious trains such as the historic Orient Express or the iconic Royal Scotsman.
You can cruise in the Adriatic along the spectacular Dalmatian coast or the beautiful Aegean Sea through the Greek Islands. You can take a river cruise along the romantic Rhine, the meandering Danube or the Waterways of Russia between Moscow and St. Petersburg. You can experience spectacular scenery in places such as Norway, Italy, Switzerland and Austria. You can sample culinary delights in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece. You can enjoy the history, arts and culture of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Luxembourg. You can discover perhaps lesser visited destinations such as Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Estonia Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, and Malta. And for a different but exciting vacation, consider the rugged beauty of Iceland.
Goway also has the expertise to customize individual travel arrangements to any country in Europe. Whether your interest is history, culture, the cuisine, the architecture, the countryside, the beaches or the desire to find out what makes these places over the centuries so inviting, consider Europe for your next vacation.
