Forty shades of green and jaw-dropping natural wonders, the Emerald Isle is unforgettable with its tranquil rolling green hills and storm-lashed seaside cliffs to dramatic underground caves and magical forests. Although its scenery is the showstopper—case in point the Cliffs of Moher, the Wild Atlantic Way and the Giant's Causeway—Ireland and Northern Ireland offer much more with folklore and history around every corner. Whether it’s spellbinding legends, gothic castles, peace and serenity, or action-packed adventures, the Irelands have something for everyone. And despite the never predictable weather (it does rain a lot), there is always a warm welcome waiting wherever you go. The best time to visit is between March and May and September to November when you can expect a temperate climate.View All Ireland Vacations

No matter the season or passion, Italy is the place for an active vacation beyond compare! Indulge in water sports from windsurfing to sailing and motor-boating in Italy’s countless marinas and ports. Fish in pristine waters of rivers and lakes, paraglide over spectacular landscapes, climb majestic mountains and more. Italy is also home to 55 UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its borders, the most of any country on the World Heritage List. Climbing the Dolomites are probably the most popular in recent years, but travelers won’t want to miss out on strolling through the City of Verona, exploring the archaeological area of Pompeii, and more. No matter what you choose, travelers will find breathtaking backgrounds while they partake in their preferred sport.
Moments of Peace
Take a bit of time and breathe in the sights and sounds of the healing forests. Northern Ireland is made for walkers—whether you are a casual ambler or a hardcore trekker. Glenariff Forest Park is famous for its woodland waterfalls and sheer plunging gorge. For the ultimate experience, embark on a forest bathing tour in County Wicklow or West Cork where you are guided through the soft forest floor tuning into all five senses while also learning about the mystery, folklore and tradition of the area. You can also just take a mindful walk in a park. Wildlife is treasured here with national parks and national trusts filled with ancient woodland, diverse flora and unspoiled vistas of mountains and lakes.
