Iceland - Game Of Thrones

Follow Jon Snow’s footsteps and enjoy the South Shore Tour that takes you to Vik on the south coast of Iceland. From mountains, volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs, Iceland is the real land of fire and ice. Located just below the Arctic Circle it is one of the most breathtaking places in the world.

Go in search of the Northern lights, check out the waterfalls or enjoy a soak in the Blue Lagoon for an experience like no other. And don’t forget there are excellent restaurants, lively clubs and bars in the city of Reykjavik too.

Ireland, Wicklow National Park - PS I Love You

Lose yourself in the gorgeous Wicklow Mountains that will lead you the morelands and hillsides that are painted with purple heather. Embrace this beautiful location where Holly and Gerry first met at the Stone Bridge, and take a look at the fast flowing streams that open up into deep lakes.

Whilst in Ireland, go behind the scenes on the Wild Atlantic Way where the cast and crew of Star Wars created faraway galaxies. This spectacular coastline carries the story line of Luke and Rey on their battle with the Dark Side.

You can also immerse yourself in the history and culture of Ireland whilst enjoying many of the cafes, bars and restaurants.

Jamaica - Cocktail

Without a doubt Jamaica is the liveliest, most compelling island in the Caribbean. It holds great culture within its history through different forms such as art and music. Enjoy yourself in this wonderful Caribbean island with its vibrant jungles, fabulous resorts and stunning landscapes.

Release your inner Brian Flanagan from the movie Cocktail and set your sights high, fully embracing the Caribbean lifestyle running around beach huts, drinking cocktails and swimming in clear waters.

Listen to reggae, enjoy jerk chicken and rum on tap whilst watching relaxing on the beach when sunset falls - it’s bound to be an incredible trip.

New Zealand - The Lord of The Rings

Nobody really needs an excuse to go to New Zealand. Full of adventure and stunning scenery it is great value for money and is often rated as one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Well known for its superb and best selling white wine - Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough - what better place to enjoy a glass of vino whilst relaxing one of the many unforgettable beaches consting on blue waters and fluffy white sand?

Whilst in New Zealand you cannot forget the incredible Lord of The Rings tour. Visit the landscapes of middle earth that featured in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy from 2001-2003. See the rolling hills of Matamata, Hobbiton, Queenstown in the mountain peaks as well as the Remarkables mountain range that feature as Dimrill Dale.
