What makes a Wow List? How to decide where to go and what to see in 2017? Truth is, everything about travel is ‘wow’ – experiencing other realms, meeting different people, learning new skills, trying new food... the list goes on. It’s the new and unknown that excites and ignites the traveller within and for many, the planning stage is just as fun as the doing. We turned to some of the most serious travellers in the business – our own CEO, travel experts, travel writers and leisure product owners; as well as mountaineers, polar expedition leaders, surfers, chefs and many more who travel for a living or for fun. But most of all, we looked to our readers, where you’ve been and where you’re heading. So read on and let these 50 travel experiences guide you for 2017. We’ve got majestic fjords and sparse deserts, tropical havens and icy wonderlands, luxury voyages and active adventures. But remember that this is just the start. Make your own list, make your holidays happen, travel, explore, find your own ‘wow’ – and then go get it.
