April last minute holidays
Although southern Europe is starting to warm up, it isnít beach weather yet but the kayak trips are starting, albeit with wetsuits. And if you arenít climbing too high, hiking and cycling breaks can be good too, as long as you pack your waterproofs. And your wildflower books, as this is when the hills start to blossom. The skies are coming to life in Scotland at this time of year too, as migratory birds are starting to arrive, and other wildlife starting to thrive too, so it is a great time for a wildlife holiday. Sicily, Sardinia and the south of Spain are starting to slowly simmer at this stage, however, for both water and land activities. The Northern Lights are usually still burning brightly at this stage too in the Far North of Europe, such as Iceland.
Further south, this is the best month for spotting as many species of whales as you can in the Azores. We also think that this is one of the most perfect times to visit Morocco, especially if you want desert adventures. Further afield, this is a good time to visit Borneo, as itís the driest season. Cuba and Costa Rica are also at their driest in April, and wildlife at its most prolific, although Cuba is very de rigeur right now, so if you see late availability, grab it. Itís a hot ticket these days. This is also a great time to head to China, the north having thawed from the winter chill, while the summer heat and humidity havenít yet kicked in in the south. Heat has kicked in big time in Indiaís Golden Triangle, however, so if there is late availability, be prepared.
