France, on the Riviera

The iconic coastline of the French Riviera is nothing short of

magnificent – or shall we say,

magnifique!

Known as France’s

Mediterranean playground, this is where travellers go to live

large and lavishly. Dine to your heart’s content, explore the

varied terrain, or simply revel in the unique crystal-clear

waters. A seven-night

Rivieras & Sunsets

voyage with

Azamara Club Cruises

showcases the best of the region,

so you don’t have to choose between Marseille’s Palace of

the Popes or Monte Carlo’s Palace of the Grimaldis. Do them

both and so much more, sailing from one area to the other in

utmost style – just as it should be done on the Côte d’Azur.

Wine &wildlife in South Africa

There’s nothing more extraordinary than Mother Earth and all

her natural wonder, and there’s no place like South Africa to

soak it all in – with the help of local vintage at the end of each

day, of course.

South Africa: An elegant adventure

, a special

tour created by

Tauck

and

BBC Earth

, takes travellers to

Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve, home

to leopards, lions and the like. Expand your understanding of

a countrywith a complicated past thanks to the knowledge

of expert guides along the way, and be sure to drink-in all the

“wow” moments, such as a visit to Victoria Falls to a sunset

cruise along the Zambezi River.

Royal engagements in London

Britain has long been a favourite destination for Canadians, and the

upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – not to

mention a third child for PrinceWilliam and Kate – has given us all

the more reason to pay a visit across the pond. But why not indulge

in a little royal treatment along the way? That’s exactlywhat travellers

can expect with

Luxury Gold’s

British Royale

tour, which offers VIP

experiences throughout a nine-day journey. Spend an afternoon with

the Duchess of Northumberland, access the Harlow Carr Gardens

for an exclusive after-hours tour, and meet a Military Knight after

witnessing the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

From upscale to off-grid, adventure-packed to low-key, here are our top

choices for extraordinary escapes you simply cannot miss this year.
