Easter holidays are perfect for going further afield and taking a longer break to fully unwind or see something really special. Bhutan is beautiful at this time of year, as is much of Vietnam with its lengthy coastline and varied environment which make for some amazing adventures. Namibia, in our opinion one of the most fascinating countries on the planet, is also in peak season. Lightfoot Travel can tailor-make your holiday to suit all your needs.

Namibia is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places on earth.

Turkey

Turkey

With a unique historical and cultural heritage, Turkey's Cappadocia is a somewhat surreal destination. Stay in one of the region's luxury hotels built within the extensive network of caves that lie beneath the city, soar over the fairy chimneys in a hot air balloon and marvel at the frescoes and passageways underground. Istanbul and the Turkish Riviera are also lovely during the month of April.
