Think of a cruise holiday and what comes to mind? Unlimited cocktails, fine dining and laying back on a sun lounger whilst admiring all of the incredible views? Well, if you’re a bit more of an adventurous type and looking for something that offers a bit more than the standard cruising holiday does, then you’re in the right place to find it. Here are three of the best off the beaten track cruise holidays designed for those who love to explore:
Be warned, these type of cruises are certainly not for the faint hearted. Arctic expedition cruises head to some of the most beautiful untouched and enchanting areas of the world giving visitors a unique chance to see isolated regions and fascinating wildlife species up close. With rugged landscapes, breathtaking views and temperatures well below 0 degrees, these cruises, like the ones at Bolsover Cruise Club, are designed for adventurers and not for those who envisaged relaxing and soaking up the rays on their cruising holiday.
Those looking for a cruising holiday which offers endless opportunities to see wildlife must go on a cruise to South Africa. What with lions, tigers, leopards and elephants roaming free in the savannah, there’s nothing quite like it. From the cruise deck, you’ll be able to admire the incredible Table Mountain views as you head in to Cape Town and from there you’ll be able to explore some of South Africa’s most fascinating nature reserves including Addo Elephant Park.
If you’re a wildlife enthusiast who wants to get close to some more exotic animals, then the Galapagos Islands are the only place for you. From watching gigantic tortoises float around in the crystal-clear waters to marine iguanas and sea turtles, there’s a wonderful array of amazing animals residing here as a result of the tropical climate. Cruises to the Galapagos Islands give you an incredible opportunity to island hop between the different places making the most of such an incredible place.
So, explorers rejoice, there are so many cruising holidays out there for you no matter how off the beaten track you like your holidays to be. From getting to see incredible animals to beautiful places and remote areas of the world, with all these unique and exciting destinations to choose from, the real question is which one should you book first?
