After two years of limited travel, most countries are prepared for tourism again and actively encouraging travel. However, these ten places were chosen for their plethora of outdoor options and commitment to COVID-19 safety.
Summer trip to Denali National Park
Denali National park is at the heart of Alaska, with over 6 million acres of untrammeled wilderness. There are plenty of adventurous options within the park throughout the year, from long hikes up the Denali trails to dog sledding and skiing in the winter. However, summer and fall are the most popular times to visit.
If you’re planning a warm-weather trip to Denali National Park, try this combo of the Apiedi Cargo shorts and the Delaney Travel Vest. The cargo shorts are comfortable for day hikes or relaxing at the resort, and the vest is practical with the cargo pockets. For chilly evenings, you cannot go wrong with packing the City Travel Slick Jacket.
Pandemic-safe trip to New Zealand
New Zealand is always a hot spot to vacation, but due to their effort during the COVID-19 pandemic onset, it is now also one of the safest. Until recently it had a zero-COVID plan, and even while restrictions are loosening it is still considered a highly safe place to visit.
When you visit New Zealand, you want to pack active tops for discovering waterfalls, hiking, sailing, and the local markets. Layer this Trina Racerback with different shorts, leggings, jackets, and accessories to keep your look simple but stylish.
Cruise to Santorini, Greece
Never a better time to get some Santorini sun than after two years of being cooped up indoors with no travel plans. The beautiful architecture makes Santorini a truly romantic paradise, and there are plenty of opportunities to sail, dine, and shop throughout the archipelago.
If you’re planning a Mediterranean cruise, pack the Melissa tee for active days, and the Taya Racerback Maxi Dress for boat days and day-to-night wear. These two are effortlessly stylish and will keep you cool under the hot Grecian sun.
Winter Skiing in Aspen, Colorado
Aspen is one of the most popular winter vacation destinations in the United States. The skiing, hiking, and family-friendly cabin rentals make this a beautiful destination for the holidays. Plus, the affordable rental rates make this an ideal place for a weekend getaway that isn’t too far out of the way.
Look cute after a day on the slopes with the Zendaya Long Duster Cardigan, Bonnie Beanie, and Etherlane Leather Fleece Leggings. This outfit is comfy, cozy, and lightweight enough to pack between heavier coats and parkas, depending on the time of year you visit Aspen.
Summer Adventure in Scotland
Scotland is often on the itinerary for a European tour, but fewer people consider it a standalone vacation destination. The rich history, charming countryside, and oceanside castles are truly phenomenal when you visit in person.
You can walk through most of the cities in Scotland, so pack light and comfortably with the Wrinkle Free Travel Tank and Relaxed Double Cargo Capri. You can accessorize with a messenger bag and stylish walking shoes, and mix and match colors for a different style every day.
Post-Olympics Trip to Japan
After the 2020 Olympics, Tokyo has become one of the most popular travel destinations of 2021 and will be for 2022. In addition to the hustle and bustle of Tokyo streets, you can enjoy the breathtaking countryside, or visit in April to see the famous cherry blossom bloom. For spring visits to Japan, the Marine Wrap dress is a must-have. It’s comfortable, stylish, and great for walking both day and night. Pair with comfortable walking sandals for daytime shopping, then slip into some heels for dinner and nightlife.
Island Hopping in the Philippines
The Philippines are an up-and-coming tourist destination that is perfect for island hopping next summer. The rugged terrain and rich cultural centers provide plenty of things to do and see while you’re visiting the different islands of the archipelago. The Wrinkle-Free Travel Tank is once again a must-have for your trip. This top is easy to pack and wear on the go and will hold up to the intense summer heat while you travel. Plus, in several different colors, you can layer over shorts, capris, or skirts and keep your outfits looking fresh.
Outdoor adventures in the Dolomite Mountains, Italy
When most people think of an Italian vacation, they picture rich foods, good wine, and relaxation. However, we recommend taking things up a notch by visiting the Dolomite Mountains for an off-the-grid Italian adventure you’ll never forget. This less-populated tourist destination is great for skiing, mountain biking, and multisport itineraries as well as resort relaxation with a spectacular mountain view.
For the Dolomites, you want something that is comfortable and practical between ski excursions and nights out. The Nariah Hybrid Utility Jacket paired with Sonia Cozy Fleece Lined Pants makes a stylish outfit that will actually keep you warm.
Most often, when people think of Caribbean cruises they picture the Bahamas. However, Jamaica is one of the best places to travel and can be an even better experience than the densely populated Bahamas and other adjacent islands. You can fly in from south Florida and enjoy a week in the Caribbean, or island-hop on a sailing cruise to get a summer’s worth of fun in one trip.
No matter how you get there, the Nautical Striped Top is a must for your packing list. This lightweight tank is so simple to pack and can be layered over several different shorts and skirts for an effortlessly cool look in the middle of summer.
Christmas in Prague
Prague is a top Christmas destination every year. From the Old Town Square Christmas Market to moonlit walks down the Vltava River, there is something for everyone in this old romantic city. Prague is known for its picturesque cobblestone streets and stunning light display, so plan your trip now to find the best deals on rentals and excursions. Bundle up by the Christmas tree in this Sade Reversible Cashmere Poncho. It is incredibly soft and works for both walking around in the winter streets or for keeping bundled up by the fire.
