November

Where to travel in November

Content

November sees the Northern Hemisphere dip into winter once again, with Sicily enjoying the last of the late sunshine. But, with the shorter days comes fewer crowds at European highlights; Venice and Malta, for example, both still enjoy good weather. Then, for a taste of things to come, head to Norway where you can cruise through dramatic fjords and take in the Northern Lights at Tromso. The Arctic capital is ideal for a short break. You can even stay at Sweden’s ICEHOTEL 365 to watch the construction of its winter sibling.

The USA also welcomes with thanksgiving festivities while there’s further cause for celebration in the Caribbean, with the likes of the Bahamas and Costa Rica’s coast coming into their year’s best. There’s also the chance, as with the Maldives, to take advantage of some excellent pre-season rates. But, if you don’t want to go too far afield for some sun, look to the Canary Islands.

In turn, Chile and Argentina’s spring is an excellently temperate time to visit, especially if you’re venturing down to Patagonia’s wilds. Staying in the Southern Hemisphere, Botswana and South Africa remain strong for safaris and game viewing, while south Australia is ideally temperate. Bushwalking in Tasmania is particularly good and New Zealand’s tramping season begins in earnest, too.

In Asia, India’s Rajasthan enjoys its driest month along with low heat and humidity. November is also a good time for wildlife spotting in Bhutan, while Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand come into their own. The western Thai islands are a particular highlight, along with Malaysia’s west coast; it’s only just the start of the dry season so expect good weather and fewer holidaymakers.
