Forget the Netherlands; Denmark is the ultimate destination to explore on two wheels this May.

Funen – the second largest island of Denmark – is another must-do, with colourful gardens, orchards and beautiful thatched cottages.

Of course, the streets of Copenhagen are made for cyclists and all the sights of the city are within easy reach. Don’t miss out this spring!

Tour the delights of Jordan

Tour the delights of Jordan


Looking for a May holiday full of adventure and unparalleled culture? Jordan is the perfect blend of past and present. The capital Amman, a modern metropolis with a vibrant commercial centre, forms a sharp contrast with ancient cities like Medaba and Petra – a hidden city only accessible by foot through the Siq gorge. Experience life as a Bedouin at Wadi Rum, where you can spend a magical night sleeping under the desert stars.

Finish your trip at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. The high salt content here keeps you afloat in the water – a truly unmissable experience!

Explore mesmerising Iceland

Explore mesmerising Iceland


May is often thought of as the best month to visit Iceland: clear weather, long, light days and no crowds – what more could you want? The most northerly capital in the world, the Nordic cool Reykjavik is the perfect starting point for your trip. From kooky shops to super trendy bars, there’s plenty to see and do across the city. 

Elsewhere on the island, you’ll be greeted with a stunning landscape of geysers, lava fields and volcanoes like you’ve never seen, as well as plenty of opportunities to spot majestic whales and orcas out at sea.

Escape the summer heat of Morocco and head to the royal city of Marrakech this May instead. Immerse yourself in the bustle of the colourful bazaars, magical souks and specialty shops. To experience the real streets of Morocco, head straight to the Place Jeema El Fna, undoubtedly the most famous square in all of Africa. A city overflowing with colours and spices, Marrakech is an absolute gem to visit this May.
