Looking for some inspiration for your next luxury holiday? Here are the top destinations fellow travellers chose last week:
Rockies & Ranches, USA
America's unique geography lends itself to exploratory self-drives, staying in traditional ranch accommodation and amid America's best-loved national parks.
Drive through the stunning Yellowstone National Park, and behold the breathtaking power of nature. Visit the alpine lakes of Grand Teton, enjoying the rustic hospitality of one of Wyoming's most luxurious lodges.
Grand Teton Mountain Lodge
Iceland literally bursts with natural attractions; active volcanoes, geysers and thermal pools hint at the explosive force here whilst great glaciers continue to carve and sculpt the dramatic landscape and the Northern Lights put on a surreal show in the skies above.
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, is a cultural powerhouse, with art galleries, museums and a coffee culture to rival anywhere. At night the city jumps to a vibrant music scene whilst on weekends the locals maintain the tradition of the runtur, the legendary Icelandic pub-crawl.
Kirkjufell Mountain, Iceland
California sums up the best of the American dream. Located on the Pacific west coast, 'The Golden State' is one of scorching deserts, snowcapped Sierra Mountains, vast wilderness areas and national parks, celebrated wineries, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in Los Angeles, and the seaside cities of San Francisco and San Diego.
Highway 1, California
Rajasthan & Northern India
Rajasthan was once a land of royalty and today revels in its regal past. Scores of forts and palaces loom from the arid desert sands, along with cities as colourful as their brightly swathed locals, who fill the streets in dazzling fabric outfits.
The sandstone pink city of Jaipur is an area of pastel-hued buildings, palaces, forts and finely carved temples, while ‘blue' Jodhpur is dominated by the spectacular showcase Meherangarh Fort citadel.
In Udaipur, experience one of the most romantic cities in India or witness tigers and leopards prowling through ancient forests in Ranthambore.
