As eyes start to scan the calendar for a summer getaway, we’ve compiled a selection of this year’s most exciting destinations. Stay in everything from 13th century hilltop castles to luxuriously converted medieval fortresses as you travel through the Spanish countryside or take a catamaran to an Italian island, complete with whitewashed architecture and azure waters.
While many associate Scandinavia with snowy wildernesses, in summer, the region comes into its own. Norway’s magnificent fjords open up to cruises past towering cliffs and out to the colourful fishing villages of the picturesque Lofoten Islands, bathed in midnight sun. Otherwise, enjoy a sweeping road trip of Iceland to take in coastal villages, vast glaciers and cascading waterfalls.
