As well as a veritable cornucopia of cultures to enjoy there is also a wide range of climates to experience but, depending on what sort of holiday you’re looking for, where is the best place to go and when?
Discover your inner penguin.
BEST TIME OF YEAR: December-February
If you love nothing more than wrapping up warm and exploring a snowy tundra then few countries can offer the same level of excitement and adventure as Canada. It is perfect for those of us who enjoy winter sport activities such as skiing and snowboarding, however there is also plenty of nature to enjoy, with wolves, black bears, buffalo and beavers all on show in their natural habitat.
Why not go for a huskie-ride for a truly exciting way to see the Canadian landscape?
Do you have a temperate temperament?
LOCATION: New Zealand
BEST TIME OF YEAR: November-March
Okay, so maybe you are quite fond of the British climate after all, but still want to get out there and see more of the world. New Zealand has a climate much the same as ours (albeit with their summers occuring during our winter months) in terms of both temperature and precipitation, and the thermometer rarely tops a comfortable 25°C in the height of summer.
The various mountainous ranges of the islands can however cause significant variations in climate even between locations that are barely tens of kilometres apart so research the perfect destination before you go.
The country also enjoys rich cultural diversity much of which is focussed around New Zealand’s native Maori traditions and the British influences on the country – particularly in terms of sport.

LOCATION: The Seychelles
BEST TIME OF YEAR: All year round.
In general, people enjoy warm and sunny weather and dislike cold and wet weather. However, it is also the case that most people don’t like the temperature to rise too high, which is why the Seychelles is the ideal locale for those seeking a sunshine getaway that doesn’t require the packing of ten cans of antiperspirant.
This 115-island archipelago spanning 174 square miles of Indian Ocean is one of the most luxurious holidays you can experience, and it is hard to even conceive a more perfect climate than that offered by the Seychelles.
As an example, the temperature on the nation’s largest island, Mahé, varies between 24°C and 30°C, while the majority of the islands are also outside of the cyclone belt.
The hotter the better?
LOCATION: Darwin, Australia
BEST TIME OF YEAR: All year round.
If you relish the thought of incredibly high temperatures all year round then the city of Darwin located in the Northern Territory of Australia is the ideal holiday hotspot – and we mean ‘hotspot’.
In Darwin the average temperature is above 30°C all year round, however the hottest months (October-January) are also the wettest, so you may want to travel during the dry season (May-September) which sees incredibly low rainfall – as little as 1.9mm and 1.2mm in June and July respectively.
Whatever your preference there is a country that will deliver the ideal climate – whether you’re a sun worshipper or an appreciator of the colder side of life.
