Wellness Travel

There are constantly new trends and new information in health and fitness and so it’s only natural for wellness travel to be a hot travel trend for 2016. As we learn more about health and wellness, there is an increase in people’s desire to keep fit and healthy and they want to include it in their holidays too. The industry is recognizing this and many suppliers are becoming more healthy-focused.

Adventure and Experience Travel

Travellers are seeking unique experiences that will take their holidays to the next level. People want to immerse themselves in the destination for their experiences to be even more personalized rather than merely visiting landmarks.

Family Travel

Parents are taking their children further afield on family-friendly journeys instead of the typical beach or theme park vacation. With this hot new trend on the rise, the world is quite literally your oyster even when travelling with your children. Multi-generational travel is also expected to continue to rise.


South America is fast becoming the hot new destination, mostly thanks to Rio de Janeiro hosting the Olympics this year. Ecuador is becoming increasingly popular, especially the Galapagos Islands. Japan and Iceland are also becoming hot ticket items as well as more unusual areas of Europe: The Baltics (Estonia, Lithuania & Latvia), The Balkans (specifically Croatia, Montenegro, Albania & Macedonia) and The Caucasus (specifically Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan).

Where will your travels take you in 2016?
