New Year’s resolutions are easy to break: the bed isn’t made every morning, you don’t call your grandmother every week, you’ve only been to the gym once. So instead of making the usual resolutions, why not use this year to resolve to travel to all of the places you’ve been dreaming of? Within Inspirato’s portfolio of 800+ vacation options are some of the world’s most iconic and exotic destinations that are an absolute must for any avid traveler. Below, we’ve outlined some of our favorites. These trips might require some extra legwork and a long-haul flight, but trust us, they’re more than worth the journey.
Inspirato’s luxury safari in Botswana’s Okavango Delta is a perfect way to get up close and personal with Africa’s major wildlife. Within this UNESCO World Heritage Site, the nature is meticulously preserved. Part of our custom itinerary travels near the Moremi Game Reserve, which is known for sightings of the Big Five: elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, and buffalo.
The world’s largest chain of waterfalls straddles the border between Brazil and Argentina in a breathtaking national park. Beholding the 275 mighty waterfalls that make up the designated World Wonder is an unforgettable experience. Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas — Inspirato’s resort partner — is mere minutes from the falls, making it the only accommodation located within the national park.
One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu appears on nearly every list of places that a traveler must see in their lifetime. The sacred Mayan structure sits 8,000 feet above sea level, surrounded by mountains, valleys, and breathtaking views. Inspirato Members have three Belmond resort partners to choose from nearby, including the only hotel situated right next to Machu Picchu itself.
The Maldives comprise 26 tropical atolls in the Indian Ocean, about 1,300 miles from the southern tip of India. Home to impossibly clear blue water and white-sand beaches, there are few places on Earth that better qualify as “paradise.” Inspirato’s resort partner, Six Senses Laamu, is composed of over-the-water villas that put members right in the natural beauty.
The most memorable moment from my trip to the Maldives was running to jump off the back of the water villa into the ocean every morning!! And of course the sunsets!!Jamie D.Inspirato Member
Myanmar – located just northwest of Thailand — is a fascinating cultural mecca. Inspirato’s hand-selected itinerary highlights the country’s biggest historical sites. In the country’s bustling largest city, Yangon, members tour a monastery and participate in a traditional ceremony. Bagan, an ancient city, is where members soar over thousands of temples in a hot air balloon.
Qing Cheng, China
A wild panda research center is located just 10 minutes away from Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain, the stunning resort where Inspirato Members stay. The hallowed mountains surrounding the resort teem with thick bamboo groves, lakes, waterfalls, and historic temples. Don’t miss the chance to practice the ancient martial art Tai Chi in its birthplace.
Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
Nicknamed “The End of the World,” the Tierra del Fuego region is at the southernmost point of South America. With soaring peaks, rugged terrain, and beautiful waterways, it’s an off-the-beaten-path mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, and serves as the main launching point for excursions to Antarctica. Arakur Ushuaia Resort & Spa is perched high on a hill, offering expansive views of the landscape.
