Top Trending Adventures for 2017

Where are our travelers headed in the New Year?

Posted on 1/17/2017 12:01:00 PM in The Buzz

Ultimate Africa: Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe Safari is our #1 most popular adventure in 2017.

At O.A.T., part of the fun of each New Year is predicting the year’s top travel trends—and we’ll be sharing more in upcoming editions of The Inside Scoop. This week, discover the most popular destinations with travelers who are departing in 2017.

As you’ll see, they span the globe, from the bottom of the Earth in southern Africa to its northernmost reaches in Iceland. While the breadth of these destinations represents our travelers’ diverse interests, they also represent the hallmarks of travel that will always be “trends” at O.A.T.: small groups, authentic cultural interactions, off-the-beaten-path discoveries, and the expert guidance of a local Trip Experience Leader. It’s what makes every O.A.T. adventure truly memorable—whatever the year, whatever the destination.
