There’s something optimistic about a spring holiday. Chase wildflowers in Norway, catch the aurora borealis in Alaska, see cherry blossoms in Japan, visit evergreen Hawaii and explore the Great Pyramids without the heat. Throughout March, April and May, destinations around the world began to bloom with celebrations, colour and light. So whether you’re ready to see the Taj Mahal or go on safari, here is where to travel in spring.
March is a time for new beginnings. As winter breaks, take your celebrations to the streets of Delhi for the colourful Holi festivals, catch the aurora borealis in Alaska and sink pints of Guinness in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day.
From religious traditions to seeing new life, the hardest part about spring tours is choosing where to go. Seek out spring blooms with cherry blossoms in Japan and tulips in the Netherlands. Or try Morocco, India, Namibia and Egypt before the summer heat arrives.
With warmer days, May is often the best time for spring holidays to popular destinations. Find yourself in a Tuscan vineyard, on a Greek beach or wandering California’s national parks without the crowds. Explore wildflower fields and fjords in Norway, soak in culture in Turkey or see the Big 5 in Kenya.
Early April is the best time to see the cherry blossoms in Japan. In big cities including Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, your best chance is between late March and early May depending on the year and location.
If you dream of running through colourful crowds and throwing rainbow powder as part of India’s Holi festival you will need to visit in March. It is a two-week festival and the date moves each year.
Absolutely. Compared to summer, you can expect to find smaller crowds in big, popular cities such as Paris, Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, Lisbon, London, Amsterdam, Athens, and Dubrovnik.
