If you’re looking for a little inspiration on the perfect place to head for your May holiday, look no further! We’ve gathered together a few options below to inspire your wanderlust.
Head straight for Hawaii
For heavenly weather without the crowds (and the prices!), you can’t beat Hawaii in May. Maui is our island of choice this time around, with its incredible beaches and striking Haleakala volcano. It’s the perfect spot for the idyllic beach break.
Be sure to visit the Celebration of the Arts festival that takes place in Kapalua this month – it’s the perfect way to learn all about the island’s cultural heritage.Order your US dollars
Hike the Inca trail in Peru
Have you always dreamed of seeing Machu Picchu for yourself? May is the perfect month! With the rainy season well and truly over, everything is green and luscious and the weather is great, but the crowds don’t arrive until June!
You don’t need to be super fit to hike the Inka trail – most treks cover 26 miles across four days – and the sights once the reach the top are well worth it!
Try cycling in Denmark
Forget the Netherlands; Denmark is the ultimate destination to explore on two wheels this May. The stunning island of Langeland is a hugely popular cycling spot, with its beautiful coastline and ancient Viking towns to explore. Funen – the second largest island of Denmark – is another must-do, with colorful gardens, orchards and beautiful thatched cottages.
Of course, the streets of Copenhagen are made for cyclists and all the sights of the city are within easy reach. Don’t miss out this spring!Order your Danish krona
Tour the delights of Jordan
Looking for a May holiday full of adventure and unparalleled culture? Jordan is the perfect blend of past and present. The capital Amman, a modern metropolis with a vibrant commercial center, forms a sharp contrast with ancient cities like Medaba and Petra – a hidden city only accessible by foot through the Siq gorge. Experience life as a Bedouin at Wadi Rum, where you can spend a magical night sleeping under the desert stars.
Finish your trip at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. The high salt content here keeps you afloat in the water – a truly unmissable experience!
Explore mesmerising Iceland
May is often thought of as the best month to visit Iceland: clear weather, long, light days and no crowds – what more could you want? The most northerly capital in the world, the Nordic cool Reykjavik is the perfect starting point for your trip. From kooky shops to super trendy bars, there’s plenty to see and do across the city.
Elsewhere on the island, you’ll be greeted with a stunning landscape of geysers, lava fields and volcanoes like you’ve never seen, as well as plenty of opportunities to spot majestic whales and orcas out at sea.
