For Your Itch List: 8-Day Inca Discovery with G Adventures
Recommended for you by Margaret Fry, Sunnyside, Bedford, NS


“Clients would tell me that hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is nothing short of mystical. I had Peru on my bucket list for years, so now, having finally experienced it for myself, I can only say it was the trip of a lifetime.”

If you’re in good health, active and willing to break a sweat in the pursuit of discovering the archeological and cultural treasures of the Inca, then the 8-day Inca Discovery small-group vacation with G Adventures is just the ticket. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure includes a four-day trek along the Inca Trail to discover the stunning mountains, cloud forests and jungles that surround Machu Picchu. Other highlights include seafood sampling in Lima, exploring ruins and bartering at local markets in the Sacred Valley.

For Your Itch List: Northern Lights of Iceland with Trafalgar
Recommended for you by Carina Bennett, Sobeys at Lower Sackville


“Iceland is quite simply astonishing. It’s a country of extreme contrasts and aptly named the ‘land of fire and ice,’ with some of the largest glaciers in Europe and some of the world’s most active volcanoes. The best time of year to see the Northern Lights is during the winter months, when off-season deals are at their best.”

Don’t be fooled by the chilly name. Iceland is one of the coolest, unspoiled destinations on the planet. Walk on a glacier, hike lunar landscapes and treat yourself to award-winning cuisine. Explore those incredible thermal pools, ancient landscapes or world-class golf links. This destination is the perfect mix of the sublime, the dramatic and the sophisticated.
