Christmas & New Year Getaways

The festive season is great and we love it here at Dragoman, but we know that whilst many people love spending this time of year at home, others want to get away from it all and see the world! That's exactly why we continue to run trips all over the world throughout the year.

If you're looking to get away over the festive season, then we've put together a list of our trips that are running during this period to help give you a few ideas of where you can celebrate Christmas overseas with Dragoman. Check out our Christmas and New Year departures below...

 

Moghuls, Mahel & Mayhem

Departing 15th Dec 2019

If you’ve never visited India before, this is a great place to start. This overland trip features all the highlights of northern India, including Varanasi, the Mogul heartlands around Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Delhi, and a tour of the major sites of Agra on Christmas Day, beginning with the world-famous mausoleum of the Taj Mahal and followed by a visit to the Agra Fort.

Wilds of Orissa & Kolkata

Departing 19th Dec 2019

Another option for spending Christmas and New Year in India, this tour shows you a side of the country that few western tourists take the time to see, but which is so colourful and full of culture that it really shouldn’t be missed. The Christmas period will be spent travelling through the rarely-visited Odisha Tribal Regions, home to more than 60 different tribal communities, each with their own distinct culture and traditions. This is a remote region which is difficult to visit as a solo traveller, and just the sort of place where overlanding comes into its own.

Best of Peru

Departing 24 Dec 2019

Looking for a tour that takes in the best of Peru in a short time frame? This is the trip for you. You’ll visit Lima, Cuzco, the Nazca Lines, the Colca Canyon, and Arequipa, to name a few. Christmas Day will see you boarding a local boat bound for the Ballestas Islands to view its magnificent range of wildlife and birdlife, while you’ll see in the New Year in the highland town of Chivay. You’ll also set a high bar for your travel experiences in 2020, as in early January you’ll spend 3-4 days trekking the Inca Trail to one of the world’s most iconic sites, the hilltop city of Machu Picchu.

Zanzibar, Zambezi & The Falls

Departing 25 Dec 2019

As alternative Christmas adventures go, you can’t do much better than a visit to the largest waterfall in the world, the mighty Victoria Falls, where this overland journey begins. From there you’ll go on to explore backwaters of the Lower Zambezi by canoe, kick back on the white beaches at Zanzibar, and celebrate the New Year on safari in the stunning South Luangwa National Park.

Voodoo & Vibes of West Africa

Departing 30th Dec 2019

Lacking in tourist infrastructure, but more than making up for it in culture, colour, incredible sights, and curious and welcoming locals, West Africa is overlanding at its finest. Compared to some of other West African countries, travelling in Togo, Benin, and Ghana is relatively easy, and some of the highlights of this tour include great tribal homestays, a guided walk around Butterfly Mountain, Mont Kluto, and a boat trip to the stilt village of Ganvie.

Your New Year celebrations will take place during a bushcamp in Akosombo, next to the River Volta and near to the Akosombo Dam, a colossal 1960s project that provides almost all of Ghana's energy needs.
