2. Distance: NOT TO FAR AWAY
(4h flight from London)
Trip: Road Atlas, Morocco.
What to expect: 2017 will dawn in an incredible way as we enjoy a specially prepared feast in a lost desert oasis. Being surrounded by palms, towering gorges and deep blue skies makes this an al-fresco experience like no other!

3. Distance: A FAR FLUNG ESCAPE  
(11h flight from London)
Trip: Ruta de los Volcanes, Costa Rica.
What to expect: After an epic week on the bikes taking in exotic local volcanoes and wonderful wildlife from the saddle, you’ll end your trip with plenty R&R. Time to kick back and enjoy New Year on the beach with a classic Costa Rican BBQ and fireworks.
