TRAVEL GUIDE 2017
8 Heli ski If you’re a ski enthusiast, why not take the sport to the next level? Heli skiing gives you access to vast amounts of terrain and enables you to ski the most untouched powder, with the added benefit of having the mountains entirely to yourself. The sweeping views as you fly in over the snowy peaks aren’t too shabby either.
Stay in an overwater villa For sun and sea lovers, nothing beats
stepping right out of your front door and straight into the crystal-clear sea. A direct flight from Singapore, the Maldives takes the cake for luxurious water villas, many with private pools, deck areas for lounging and some with a waterslide entrance into the ocean.
Trek Nepal’s Annapurna
Circuit Running between 160 and 230 kilometres and taking over 17 days to complete, the Annapurna trek is one of the most scenic and accessible routes that even amateur hikers can do. The horseshoe-shaped trail takes you through some of the highest and most beautiful peaks in the world, including Annapurna and Dhaulagiri – both over 8,000 metres.
10 Fly over New Zealand’s Southern Alps & Milford Sound Flying through the gigantic peaks of the Southern Alps from picturesque Queenstown is absolutely breathtaking. On the way out, touch down for a stroll along a glacier, before flying on to the giant fjords of Milford Sound. On the return journey, soar over ancient wooded valleys with fresh rivers flowing down from the mountains. This is nature at its finest.
Set foot on the Antarctic continent
The Great White Continent is one of the least explored places in the world, and visits warrant bragging rights even among the most seasoned travellers. Camp out on the ice; witness Emperor penguins returning to the sea; hike new routes amidst untouched alpine terrain; or take the plunge and swim in the thermal waters of Deception Island – a once in a lifetime experience.
