Travel to Remote Summer Locations & Enjoy the Luxury

by Amy Lignor

 

Weather’s warm, skies are sunny, and school is basically all sewn up for the year. It is summertime and time to travel. But, for many, they are still looking for that summer getaway located far, far away from children who want to scream and yell on those fun amusement park rides out there, and from those families who look more exhausted after they Summer travel, Enjoy, Life, Brazil, Israel, Greece, Canada, Iceland, Caribbeanvacation than before. Well…for those who are looking for that serenity, that utter relaxation found in an exquisite locale where a vacation really is a break, below you will find some highly sought after places you can take off to!

 

Let’s start in Brazil. At the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas, which is located inside Iguazu National Park just a short distance from the stellar and iconic Iguazu Falls, vacationers will be able to sit back and enjoy absolute beauty. Luxury is the key word for this location. Resembling a colonial Portuguese residence, the rooms are a mixture of bright art and deep, rich wood furniture. And for those who wish to partake in a little ‘Indiana Jones’ adventure while there, everything from helicopter rides to jungle paths are available.

 

If the Belmond is full, set on twelve thousand acres of a nature reserve in Toledo, Belize, the Belcampo Belize is there waiting high up in the hills. Views of tropical rainforests, stunning gardens – even a private tram is available to guests who wish to hit the serene lakes to take up the paddles and go kayaking and canoeing in the unforgettable surroundings.

 

In Israel, in the Negev desert where the Ramon Crater rests, is the Beresheet Hotel. Perched on the edge of the cliffs there, private villas with private pools, balconies and amazing desert views can be found.

 

Perhaps another mountain chain? In the splendor of Greece, high up in the Pindus Mountains, sits the Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas. This is all about nature and shedding the ‘real’ and ‘noisy’ world in order to truly get away. Hiking this area will be burned on the memory for all time, and the suites and villas available to guests are equally as beautiful as the land they sit upon.

For the nature lover looking a little closer to home, Canada also offers some amazing picks. At the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise (to be found in Banff National Park, Alberta), outdoorsmen and women, as well as alpinists, have loved this locale for more than a century. Surrounded by mountains and the Victoria Glacier, this is one place offering entertainment all four seasons. From the lover of skiing to the mountain biker wishing to explore right now, this is the place to head to.

 

At the other end of Canada on Vancouver Island in B.C. is The Wickaninnish Inn. The ocean is everywhere you look there. The hotel offers fresh seafood at their highly reviewed restaurant and the panoramic views and natural locations instill absolute enjoyment.

 

Are you that winter lover? No place like Iceland, wouldn’t you say? Just an hour away from the capital of Reykjavik travelers can find the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel. And the name most definitely fits. This place is all about adventure; from trekking over glaciers to fly-fishing in freezing rivers, at night the traveler can sit back in the luxury, have a drink, view the Northern Lights, and plan for their next adventure when the sun comes up.

 

One of the coolest places for winter fiends to stay at is the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort located in the Finnish Lapland. Just 250 kilometers north of the Arctic, this place is perched right at the edge of the wilderness near Urho Kekkonen National Park. The hotel is magnificently unique; the architecture is that of actual glass igloos from which the traveler can observe those breathtaking Northern Lights. Log cabins, snow igloos and suites are also available.

 

From cold to warm, the Anse Chastanet Resort on St. Lucia’s Caribbean coast is the place to choose if wanting the sun. The rooms include infinity pools where one can relax and look up at Jade Mountain rising behind them. This 600-acre beach front resort has a wealth of scenery, from manmade buildings to the natural world. Built on the philosophy of architecture working in perfect harmony with the Caribbean views, individual bridges, sanctuaries and rugged stoned-faced columns make this particular vacation choice a mesmerizing experience.

 

So…if you’re ready to take some time off and enjoy nothing but luxury and beauty—well-earned after all the work you’ve done—get on the internet and check on the availability of these (and other) remote spots to travel where you can enjoy absolute peace.
