1. Cycle Burma

Pedal past ancient temples across the Bagan plateau before making a stop at a local farm where you'll learn how to turn the toddy palm fruit into jaggery (a sugary sweet). Taste the fruits of your labours with the local palm wine - a perfect refresher after time in the saddle. If you're lucky the farmer will climb up the toddy palm tree itself, choosing the ripest, freshest and most succulent of fruits for you to try right before your eyes. Delicious!

2. Highlights of Northern India

The Chambal Eco-lodge is an oasis of peace in an otherwise busy exploration of Northern India. During a two-night stay at the lodge, you'll have the chance to go on a river safari in search of endangered gharial crocodile, soft shell turtle and a variety of birds including hornbill, babbler and barbet. After a day spent on the water, relax in the enclosed intricate gardens of the small lodge and soak up the peace and quiet.

3. Simply Japan

In the soft, morning light, feel the weight of the silence and expectation as you enter Tokyo's Fudo-do temple. The stillness is broken by the loud, resonant chanting as ancient texts dedicated to the god of justice are recited. Flames leap from the sacrificial fire and huge taiko drums are beat in a mesmerising ceremony, believed to have a cleansing effect on all who witness it.

4. Classical Sicily

As you walk along the hill ridge, misleadingly known as the Valley of the Temples, feel your skin prickle as the ruins of the largest Doris temple ever constructed come into view among the olive trees. The Temple of Zeus towers over you as you approach, dwarfing you with its scale and centuries of history. Admire the ancient metropolis as you wander through the complex, while taking in the views of Sicily beyond.

5. Family Okavango Delta

Sleeping in an open campsite in Moremi National Park with hippos, hyenas and elephants right outside your tent will bring you so much closer to nature. Based in the north-eastern corner of Botswana's Okavango Delta, the mixture of grassland, forest and swamp play host to a vast array of wildlife and you'll be camping in the thick of it all.

6. Costa Rica on Two Wheels

Cycle around the shores of Lake Arenal, under the shadow of its mighty volcano and spot wildlife at its most relaxed; you might be lucky enough to spot a sloth coming out of the trees carrying her baby across the road. It may stop the traffic and the cycling for a while, but what a rest stop getting such a great view of these beautiful creatures.

7. Zululand and Kruger Wildlife

When entering Kruger National Park, it’s hard to describe the feeling of spotting the Big Five for the first time, as a herd of elephant slowly move towards your vehicle or you spot a leopard lazing on the low branches in a tree; it’s exhilaration, excitement and tear-jerking all rolled into one.

8. Toubkal Climb

Rising before dawn, you'll set off after a warming cup of tea, following a trail of head torches traversing slowly up the slopes of Jebel Toubkal. It won’t be long before the sun starts to rise up the valley, lighting the way to the iconic triangle summit marker and vistas of the High Atlas Mountains and the Sahara come into view.

9. Jordan Discovery

You’ll never forget the moment that you turn the final corner of the Siq, after winding your way through the the Valley of the Moon, to see the ancient, rose facade of Petra’s Treasury for the first time.
View tour

10. Treasures of China

China’s rivers are the lifeline to many of its remote villages. Cruise down both the Yangtse and the Li Rivers, so far removed from the modern China megacities, and meet locals in remote waterside villages.
