Planning your next great adventure? The best time for this might actually be in the New Year as you will find that this is the ideal time weather-wise in a few of the more adventurous places around the world. This will also give you plenty of time to make plans and get the money together for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Not only this, but an adventure in January 2020 is a great way to combat those January blues!

So, where are a few of the best places for a January adventure?

Phuket

There are few destinations as idyllic and mysterious as Phuket, an island found in the Andaman Sea which is heavily rainforested and mountainous along with breathtaking beaches. This means that it is certainly somewhere that you can find adventure whether this is hiking through the rainforest or exploring the busy markets in the capital city, but you can also spend your time unwinding on the beach, splashing in the ocean and taking in the mesmerising views.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a nature lover’s paradise because there is such varied and breathtaking scenery found here – this also means that you find some truly majestic wildlife too. Costa Rica has thick rainforest, dramatic coastlines, beautiful beaches, imposing volcanoes and much more. With so much to see and do here, a trip to Costa Rica is best planned by a specialist in activity holidays, such as Exodus Travels.

Bali

The Indonesian island of Bali is popular all year round but particularly good at the start of the year when the island tends to be quieter and more peaceful (it is usually cheaper too!). In addition to this striking forested volcanic mountains, coral reefs, beaches and rice paddies, Bali is also home to many key religious sites which can be fascinating and beautiful to behold.Norway

If you don’t mind the cold weather then Norway could be an excellent place for a January escape. This breathtaking destination has a lot to offer any visitor and the possibility of witnessing the Northern Lights if you are lucky – an incredible experience that you certainly will never forget.

Sri Lanka

There is nowhere else in the world quite like Sri Lanka, found in the Indian Ocean in South Asia. It boasts a lovely climate in January so it is a great winter sun escape but also somewhere with amazing natural beauty, rare wildlife and stunning heritage monuments to explore.

If you want an adventure to look forward to in the New Year then any of the above destinations would be an excellent choice. This is a terrific time for a big, once-in-a-lifetime adventure and there are a handful of super destinations that will get 2020 off to a brilliant start.
