In an increasingly shrinking world, adventures are harder to come by. To help, we’ve hand-picked our recommendations for the most rewarding trips in 2016. Head for Norway to search for the Northern Lights and experience some husky sledding, or, for something a bit warmer, there are coastal drives linking the iconic sights of Sydney and Melbourne.
Alternatively, switch hemispheres and listen out for the infectious basslines of America’s Deep South blues, or for the caws and coos of the fascinating birdlife high atop Alberta's Rocky Mountains.
Perhaps above all, there’s a unique opportunity to undertake an epic Arctic icebreaker expedition aboard the Kapitan Khlebnikov – the only way to truly assimilate oneself with some of the world's most remote landscapes.
