1. Cycling, gourmet moments, and fairy-tale landscapes in France 🇫🇷
Unsurprisingly, the summer destinations in France showcase nature.
If you crave fresh air, opt for a cycling vacation. Cycling tourism is the travel trend of the year, and France is full of paths to take on two wheels. In particular, the 800 km trail along the Loire river allows you to combine the pleasures of a stroll with visits to the most beautiful Renaissance castles. A low-cost vacation option that will delight both young and old!
For the more gourmet, the summer break of 2022 is an opportunity to indulge your palate with a wine tourism stay in Burgundy, a French region renowned for its great wines. But also for its small medieval villages, its varied landscapes, and its capital, Dijon, an ancient city of dukes bursting with history. Snails and Aligoté Burgundy wine are on the menu, and cellars and museums open their doors to you.
And if you want to get away without leaving France, book your ticket to Réunion: you will be seduced by the island's impetuous character, its coves, its peaks, its volcanic fury, not to mention its magnificent beaches. A destination at a standard price, but a magical vacation in prospect!
Reminder: Traveling in France goes hand in hand with vacation vouchers, remember to use them before their expiration date.
2. Hiking, relaxation, and thrills in Europe 🇪🇺
Looking for a confidential destination for your summer vacation in 2022, where you can recharge your batteries while avoiding crowds of tourists? Head to Slovenia. Less well-known and therefore less crowded than its neighbor Croatia, but bordered like it by the turquoise blue of the Mediterranean, this small European country invites you to hike between sea and mountains. Moreover, it's a low-cost destination!
To travel at a low price and enjoy paradisiacal white sand beaches less than 3 hours away by plane from Paris, fly to Albania. Along the 300 kilometers of coastline, you will swim in crystalline waters, explore wild bays, and stroll in authentic fishing villages.
Want to fill up on thrills as well as beautiful landscapes? Then head to Iceland, a standard-priced destination that is very popular with adventurers. Geysers, waterfalls, and volcanoes during the day, northern lights at night, you won't be bored for a second!
3. Summer 2022 destinations around the world 🌍
This summer, the unexplored lands of North America, Egypt, and Thailand are yours! These are indeed the three 2022 travel trends for international vacations, depending on whether you prefer physical activity, archaeological discoveries, or swimming in emerald-colored lagoons.
Like Napoleon, have you always dreamed of being admired by forty centuries of history, from the top of the famous pyramid of Khufu? You will have no difficulty finding low-cost flights to Egypt, where many must-see sites await all ancient history enthusiasts: the pyramids of Giza, the temple of Abu Simbel, but also the souks and museums of Cairo... For even more of a change of scenery, perhaps you will be tempted by a camel-back excursion in the lunar landscapes of the Egyptian desert?
To recover from a tiring year without exploding your vacation budget, there's nothing like tropical paradises in southern Thailand. Apart from the price of flights, life once there is rather inexpensive. And there, relaxation is not the only thing on the program: many sources of wonder await you, between multicolored coral reefs, bays of unique beauty in the world, fishing villages bordered by mangroves.
Between the price of the plane ticket and the cost of living on site, Quebec remains a rather expensive destination… which, however, does not detract from its charm. There, the great natural spaces lend themselves to hiking, in the footsteps of the first trappers. You can also practice rowing on the St. Lawrence River, salmon fishing, climbing in the Laurentides region... The range of sports activities is vast, and rejuvenation is guaranteed.
