Seasoned travelers are looking to take that long-coveted bucket list trip that they have been putting off.

Safari in Africa

Bucket-list trips are rising in rapid numbers. A safari in Tanzania or Kenya is the ultimate bucket-list trip for many seasoned travelers. Those that have done this trip admit that they have not yet matched the awe-inspiring experience that they had on safari. In recent years, these high-end safaris have boomed in popularity. When travel to Africa fully reopens, the safari trend will continue.

U.S. cities with southern charm are a great place to spend a holiday in 2022. From Charleston to Atlanta to New Orleans, many Americans will choose to spend some time in the south. The winters in the southern United States are generally mild, which makes it a wonderful destination for strolling through the charming streets of Savannah.

The Dolomites

For skiers, these slopes in Italy are the holy grail of outdoor adventure. The Dolomiti Superski pass allows skiers the ability to ski freely within the largest ski area in the world. This includes the approximately 900 ski lifts and trails without needing a transfer.

Polar Expeditions

Travel to the Arctic Circle and see the mighty polar bear up close. Wildlife enthusiasts consider the polar bear in his natural habitat a “must-see” activity. As the popularity of these polar expeditions grew, tour operators upped their game by making these expeditions the ultimate in experience tourism.

American engineers and railroad companies are finally starting to catch up with the luxurious and high-speed rail lines that have been in operation abroad.

Many Americans prefer all the conveniences and perks of train travel, and this trend is increasing in popularity.
