Why February Is a Fantastic Month for Travel

Why February Is a Fantastic Month for Travel
February 09
08:00 2016

So we are just going to come right out and say it – February is an awful month. It’s just awful! Look outside the window at that weather… horrible, isn’t it? Spending February stuck in the UK is like spending a month in purgatory. You’re stuck for things to do, as the weather seems eternally poised to rain on your parade, no matter what you do.
That is one of the reasons that makes February the perfect month to travel in – you can get away from all the wind and the rain! But if that’s not quite enough of a reason for you, here are some more things that might just sway your mind.

It’s Mardi Gras!

First and foremost, February fun – Mardi Gras celebrations kick off on the 9th in New Orleans, so what better time to visit this wonderfully vibrant part of the United States? Louisiana’s number one city truly comes alive for the carnival, with giant processions of revellers and floats taking to the streets, bringing a unique and exciting splash of colour. Come join the festivities!

Winter Racing

The opulent Swiss ski resort that is St Moritz does something a little special every February – its lake, now frozen, is transformed into a horse racing track for the White Turf event. Of course, you can live in the lap of luxury here, sipping on iced Champagne and heading to your glitzy après-ski parties with the rich and the famous, but standing tickets for White Turf are surprisingly affordable, at about £15 per person.

A Valentine’s Vacation

Sure, it’s a bit of a cliché, but it’s a classic for a reason. The ultimate cliché would have to be Paris, but really… who wouldn’t want to be whisked away to the City of Love for a long weekend in the City of Love? But Paris isn’t as warm as you might think in February – France is still in winter, after all. Instead, why not do something a little different and jet off to the Andalusian capital of Seville? Spain’s “frying pan” is usually around 15 degrees, and it’s a lovely city on its own merits.

Tiger Encounters

Do you know where is fantastic in February? India, that’s where. Temperatures in Delhi can be expected to sit at around 24 degrees, making it lovely and balmy – worlds away from the UK! And with the new e-visa scheme, you can decide to go pretty last minute. Perfect!
Fancy seeing the rural and traditional side of the country? Then the Wild Frontiers adventure group tour has you covered; you will be able to visit the tribes of the eastern states and explore the amazing Araku Valley. Or perhaps the ferocity of wild animals is more your bag? If that’s the case, then you’ll want to approach Naturetrek about their Wild India in Style tour – you’ll visit two different tiger reserves, where you can come face to face with those most majestic of beasts.
