Leisure travel has gained popularity in recent years, with the new breed of travelers taking it a step further. Not only are intrepid travelers visiting all the most popular tourist hot spots, they are also opting for more secluded, lesser known locations offering authentic experiences that are “off the beaten track”.

Whilst travelers have always had the world at their fingertips, travel companies are tailoring their packages to be increasingly more targeted to specific themes and/or types of travelers and less focused on the destination as the main selling point. Now, travelers can choose between options of a wellness tour where relaxation and rejuvenation is key, or an adventure tour, where thrill-seeking and exploration take first preference.

In response to these changes, the industry as a whole has been forced to up its game in order to remain competitive, and this has led to the skyrocketing popularity of luxury travel as a concept for engaging new travelers.

Get ready for a destination that takes all its stereotypes, and flips it on its head by proving to vacation goers that “secluded” and “driest”, doesn’t always mean boring.

It’s crazy to think that the Atacama is known to be the driest place on Earth, but as this Chilean desert has gone through many stages, experiencing semiarid conditions for the past 150 million years. Scientists believe that the desert’s inner core has been hyperarid for the past 15 million years, all thanks to a combination of unique geologic and atmospheric conditions in the area.

The Atacama Desert in northern Chile is a unique combination of environmental extremes. Its extreme dryness, high levels of saline and oxidizing soils, as well the highest UV radiation levels on Earth, give us a little insight as to why Nasa chooses this location year after year in order to test-drive its new Martian rovers.

The overwhelming aridity of the Atacama can be attributed to three factors; Its location within the southern hemisphere’s dry subtropical climate belt, the pronounced rain shadow effect created by the Andean Mountains that prevent the incoming of humid masses of air coming from the Amazon Basin, and the presence of the upwelling, north-flowing, cold Humboldt Current, which significantly helps with seawater evaporation and cloud formation.

FunFact: Since the South American plate has maintained its latitudinal position relatively in the same place for the past 150 million years, as a consequence, rains in some regions of the Atacama are as infrequent as once every 20 years!

What comes to mind when thinking of the ideal destination for your first post-pandemic vacation? Is it an island tour that offers you breathtaking coastlines? Is it a cultural tour that allows you to look inward, as much as you look out? Or is it a destination that offers you tantalizing flavors that will send your taste buds to another dimension? With so many options to choose from, you might freeze at the idea of having to decide, so why not choose a destination that offers it all?

Peru is the South American gem with so much to offer. And a fair word of warning, if your trip is not planned correctly, you might find yourself never leaving! From the remoteness of the Andes Mountains, to the large unexplored territories of the Amazon rainforest, the country has a ‘special’ kind of mysticism surrounding it that attracts thousands from across the globe each year.

Wellness travel is a niche market that has grown in popularity in recent years. Its traction within the industry is thanks – in part – to the consensus that in today’s world, humans need to slow down and actively take better care of ourselves. As we look to improve our mental and physical well-being, travelers may now find themselves reframing their travel plans to account for a slightly slower pace with more pampering and relaxation time built in.

Instead of a fleeting visit, many tourists now opt for a relaxed experience that affords them the chance to connect more with their surroundings. This desire, drives travelers to explore off-the-beaten-track destinations and remote, private experiences that are less mainstream.
