Escape The Politics… The Traveller Way

Escape The Politics… The Traveller Way

With the election all over, it’s time to escape the politics. 

Online travel company and responsible tourism pioneer, Responsible Travel, has interviewed some of the UK most inspirational travellers to find out the best places to wake up in the world, perfect for those who are fed up with the political posturing.

Here’s where they suggest we head off to, to escape the election fall-out!

BBC Wildlife Presenter – Liz Bonnin

Cross the Polar Circle, which few have crossed, on this 12 day Expedition in Antarctica. Explore the Shetland Islands and the Antarctic from £5,295 excluding flights, December 2017 – March 2018 (01273 823700)


British Gold Medal Paralympic Cyclist, Karen Darke:

“‘I have to say probably hanging off El Capitan.”

Yosemite National Park, escape the politics

In contrast to Karen’s view, you may prefer to enjoy Yosemite National Park looking up at El Capitan with your feet firmly on the ground. We would suggest, especially if you are travelling far, that you should see as many Western American national parks as possible. (01273 823700)
