Are you not one of those people who like to party at a club or at a friend‘s house at the end of the year? Do you want something untraditional and do not know how to celebrate New Year's Eve? We bring you three non-traditional celebrations of the end of the year. Breathe in the scent of far away lands at the other end of the world.
A celebration on a raft
A literally unforgettable New Year's Eve, where you might also fight for your life. A weekly wandering of the wild river Zambezi, when you will not see a firework at the end of the wild river, but you will experience adrenaline on the wildest river in the world. However, you are not only in for a crazy ride on the river, but also sleeping on the beach and a stroll by Victoria Falls.
Interesting fact: Zambezi is the fourth largest river on the African continent. With a length of about 2,700 km, it is comparable to the Asian Brahmaputra and has an average flow of 3,400 cubic feet per second, roughly half of the Nile. Zambezi has its source in northern Zambia at 1500 meters and crosses the African continent first from north to south to the Botswana border, and then turns its direction towards the east to the massive delta that flows into the Indian Ocean in Mozambique.
Flight ticket prices from 25,000 CZK, accommodation from 20,000 CZK.
A camel ride
Who wouldn‘t like to wander the Sahara desert by camel and enjoy peace, quiet and solitude with a starry sky above your head. There will be plenty of time to take photos and taste the local cuisine. Probably the best way to relax in the last days of the year.
Interesting facts: The largest desert of the world, with an area of 9,269,000 km², occupies almost the same area as China or the United States of America. The Sahara stretches from the Mediterranean towards the south and across Africa from the west to the east, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea.
Flight ticket prices from 5,000 CZK, accommodation from 2,000 CZK.
Cycling through the Philippines
Do you love sports and under no circumstances do you want to get rid of your bike? Spend New Year's Eve in the Philippines. There is a peaceful cycling tour around the scenic tropical and agricultural landscape. You will also experience snorkeling in the rich underwater world of coral reefs. The local cuisine will literally bewitch you.
Interesting facts: In the Philippines, it is worth visiting the spectacular rice terraces in Banaue. Carved from the mountain range about 2,000 years ago without modern instruments, they look like a stairway to the sky. Local people still cultivate rice and vegetables here to this day.
Flight ticket prices with accommodation from 35,000 CZK.
