Exotic Travevl | Ingenious TravelAn exotic vacation means different things to different people. For some, it means a trip to a hot destination like Tahiti or the Seychelles. For others, it’s an adventure trip with nonstop thrills like sky diving and riding an ATV off the coast of Maui. An exotic vacation may entail lots of different and exciting activities that you would not have the chance to enjoy otherwise, but regardless of what you’re doing and where you’re going there are definitely some things you can do to make your exotic travel experience an easier one.

First and foremost, hire Ingenious Travel! When you hire a travel agent to handle all of your travel needs, your trip instantly becomes much more exciting and easier to plan because all of the legwork is handled for you! We can come up with an itinerary that suits your needs perfectly, and we can help you stay within your budget.

Second, figure out what exotic means to you. Sometimes answering the question of what the best places and activities of a given destination can prove difficult, and varies from person to person. One person might want to climb scenic peaks by morning, look for sea turtle eggs on the beach at lunch and go on a zip line tour in the afternoon. This may be great for them, but what if you would prefer something not quite so strenuous or perhaps a little cheaper? To know your trip goals ahead of time and the goals of your travel companions will better help you design the perfect trip.

Don’t go in blindly. By this I mean don’t just choose a destination based on a brochure. Ask us, your travel agents about the areas you are considering. We can tell you about guided tours, historic sites, and about areas that you otherwise would not have a chance to see and experience.

Northern Lights | Ingenious TravelIf you have only marveled at the many stunning pictures captured of the great Northern Lights but have always wanted to experience it first hand, it may be time to start planning your trip. Though the overall visibility of the lights tends to shift from time to time, there are a handful of consistently great places to experience them. Consider heading to these following destinations and watch as this natural wonder appears before your eyes…

Jokulsarlon – Iceland

Although Iceland has dozens of fantastic spots to get a view of the Northern Lights, near the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is said to be the absolute best of them all. Being within the Arctic Circle will allow you to gain the best chance of a clear sky and once the lights hit the icebergs that cover the lagoon, you are in for an experience of a lifetime. So, make your way to Iceland and head about 250 kilometers outside of Reyjavik and get ready for a spectacular show.

Fairbanks – Alaska

Often referred to as undoubtedly the best place within the United States to capture a great glimpse of the Northern Lights, Fairbanks, Alaska makes for an incredible trip. One of the best pieces of advice if you do decide to head this way is to view them whilst in a hot spring. Though this may seem odd, it will help to alleviate both the cold and fatigue onsets that many travelers get while on the journey. Head to Chena Resort and Manly Hot Springs for the best experience.
