There’s always excitement in the air here at Collette at the start of a new travel season. For us it means launching new tours, learning what’s different about our existing itineraries, and looking to the future to see which destinations will be trending in the coming year.

At Collette, every new season brings with it yet another reason to get out and see the world. This year, there are many — like immersing yourself in the Andelusian lifestyle on Spain’s Costa del Sol & Madrid. Or exploring the ancient underground cities of Cappadocia on our Treasures of Turkey tour. Or sailing across the Port of Valetta on a traditional Dghajsa boat during our Old World Sicily & Malta tour. With these amazing new experiences about to unfold, we can hardly contain ourselves!

To celebrate the launch of Season 106, we’ve created a whole list of reasons to travel in the coming year — 106 reasons to be exact. That’s one for every awe-inspiring year we’ve been in the biz.

A sampling of these reasons can be found below. Not that you needed another. ;)

Igloo with Northern Lights

Reason #68: Wake up to a new adventure…Every. Single. Day.

Guided travel used to mean long days on the coach, dining at hotel buffets, and staying in typical accommodations. Well, not anymore. You might get from point A to point B via dog sled, a safari jeep, or public transportation. You might share a meal with a local family in their home. When it’s time to rest, you might find yourself peeking at the skies from your Finnish igloo or embracing the romance of an Italian villa.

Local culture

Reason #12: Change your worldview — for the better.

Meeting people from different cultures challenges stereotypes and unconscious biases, fostering empathy and understanding across cultures.

the Colosseum

Reason #44: Explore history where it happened.

Because it’s time you saw the Great Pyramids of Egypt in person. Or gazed up at the sky from inside the Colosseum in Rome. Or listened to Mozart on your headphones while wandering the streets of his hometown in Salzburg.

Savvas hot air balloons

Reason #74: Revitalize your mind.

Routines have their place in life but sometimes it’s necessary to shake things up and rewire your brain. Studies show that travel has the power to improve cognitive flexibility, elevate your mood, and even increase your energy, creativity, and focus.


Reason #99: There’s no time like the present.

If we’ve learned anything from the world-changing events of the past few years, it’s that there’s no telling what tomorrow will bring. Today might just be the perfect day to book that bucket-list trip you’ve been dreaming of.

Feeling inspired yet? Here’s to a new season of travel!
