January – Lapland: Northern lights and huskies – Fly to Rovaniemi or Kittila for three/four nights to enjoy authentic Lapland activities which include visiting a reindeer farm, going on a husky safari and seeing the northern lights.
February – Disneyland Paris: You’re never too old to enjoy a theme park. Transfer by Eurostar, drive, or fly to Paris and spend three/four days in the two theme parks. Prices include accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis with accessible shuttles between the hotel and parks and a four-day park pass.
March – Tenerife: banish the winter blues: Its location off the west coast of Africa means Tenerife enjoys a mild year round climate with March the perfect time to spend seven nights escaping the winter blues. There are plenty of accommodation options to choose from – bungalows in Playa de Las Americas, 5-star hotels in Costa Adeje or something in between.
April – Egypt: Cruise the Nile: Experience an accessible Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan. Choose from three/four/ seven-night cruises with the opportunity to add extra nights in Luxor or Cairo with accessible shore excursions.
May – USA: New York, New York: Visit one of the world’s most exciting cities on a four-night break. See, up close and personal, the Statue of Liberty, Broadway, Central Park and the Empire State Building, but don’t forget to leave time for some retail therapy.
June – Portugal: City culture or sandy beaches: Facing the Atlantic, Portugal offers Lisbon for city culture – the perfect five-night break. Or alternatively, if relaxation is the order of the day, the Algarve’s sandy beaches are perfect for a one or two week holiday.
July – Canada: ‘Fall’ for Toronto: The twin allure of Toronto and Niagara Falls is just one of countless holiday options available in Canada. Niagara Falls has accessible excursions that include a boat ride and a visit to a local winery. Meanwhile, the rest of the country is easily explored on a self-drive trip.
August – Ireland: tick it off your wish list: Ireland is so easy to get to with flights taking less time than a train between London and Birmingham! Taking the ferry and self-driving is also an option. Choose from Dublin or Cork for a three/four-night city break.
September – Costa Rica: a wildlife wonderland: Direct flights to San Jose make Costa Rica perfect for an accessible wildlife and nature viewing itinerary of nine nights or more. Options include the Arenal volcano region, Manuel Antonio National Park as well as many other excursions.
October – Israel: Tel Aviv, Eilat and more: Israel offers an impressive choice of accessible destinations, whether it be relaxing by a beach in Tel Aviv or Eilat, to touring any number of historic cities. Perfect for culture vultures.
November – Dubai: one destination, many options: There are many reasons to visit Dubai not least of which are the sandy beaches, the hot year round climate, the great shopping and exciting theme parks and the excellent selection of direct daily flights.
