Our pick of dream holidays for 2021

Here at Titan we want to make this the year of the holiday. And we know that many of our customers are eager to begin exploring the world again. So why wait to go on a dream holiday – perhaps you want to make up for lost time and keen to tick off your wishlist sooner, rather than later. With over 200 escorted tours across the world, we have plenty of bucketlist destinations for all types of adventurers - from foodie fans to wildlife lovers, history buffs to outdoor enthusiasts – we really do have every conceivable type of holiday experience.

With that in mind, however, we’re always asked what dream adventures we would recommend. And while we have far too many to choose from – Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica and The Galapagos to name but a few, we think these five below really offer an extensive range of incredible travel experiences, which you may not have considered previously. From the unique landscapes of Alaska to the spiritual wonderment of India, these are some of our top picks of dream holidays for 2021.


Choose Israel for your next adventure and prepared to be overwhelmed – from the breathtaking views across sweeping valleys and hills to the exciting vibrant holiday atmosphere of Tel Aviv, our Israel holidays will excite and confound. Israel’s collection of biblical sites is extraordinary. Its religious significance to three of the world’s great faiths and four billion people is incomparable. Its wonders, such as the Dead Sea, have no equivalent elsewhere and you’ll get the chance to float in its restorative waters. Take a walk along the Via Dolorosa, see the Dead Sea Scrolls in all their glory and explore inside the ethereal Church of the Nativity. Learn about Israel’s most important Christian and Jewish sights and discover the enormous significance of Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Nazareth. We think Israel is captivating.

Explore the last frontier in Alaska. If you’re looking for an adventure that not only takes in spellbinding scenery but also offers a unique and wonderful travel experience, then Alaska is for you. The ‘Great Land’ is full of stunning landscapes from vast national parks teeming with wildlife to immense glaciers and fjords. Let the power of Mother Nature show you just how spectacular our natural world is. We have several Alaskan holidays from our Alaskan Explorer cruise and Natural Wonder tours, you’ll be taken on an unparalleled adventure through a land of grizzly bears, moose and bald eagles. From a rail journey through the Alaskan wilderness to a tour of a wildlife conservation centre, this really is a spectacular trip that will leave you utterly enchanted.

Cuba is a unique destination that, even though it's still frozen in time – think colourful vintage cars and neon signs – it is beginning to make huge strides moving into the modern age. And now, is the perfect time for a trip to Cuba to experience this vibrant, Caribbean destination that is known for its soul music, Latin culture, cigars and extraordinary revolutionary past. On our Cuba holidays, you’ll enjoy romantic colonial cities, shimmering coastlines and gorgeous landscapes. And there is so much more to discover beyond the beaches on our Cuba tours. Follow in the footsteps of revolutionist Che Guevara and writer Ernest Hemingway, explore the romantic grandeur of capital Havana and stroll the seafront and enjoy as vintage cars drive past.
