Green List Countries to Travel to in 2021

With so many of us looking forward to seeing the world again, we were thrilled to get confirmation from the UK government on the new traffic light system for safe travel. With this in mind, we’re delighted to confirm the tours and cruises currently on the green list that we’ll be operating this summer, so you can plan a late escape with confidence. We’ll be keeping this list up to date, so look out for updates on Facebook and bookmark our best last minute holidays for 2021 holiday inspiration.  

We currently only plan to travel to green list countries, so will be monitoring the situation closely and will confirm the status of your holiday 4-6 weeks before departure. Please be assured, our ethos remains to provide you with an exceptional holiday experience, and regardless of tier, we will only operate your holiday if we are confident we can deliver on that promise.

Green list countries


Something a little different, but a bucket list destination for many. As well as a tour of historic Reykjavik, experience the wonders of nature first-hand with an itinerary to impress even seasoned geologists and wildlife experts. It wouldn’t be a trip to Iceland without a stop in UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, where we witness the power of Gullfoss waterfall and Strokkur geysers. Then there’s the fauna – seeing the iconic puffins of Reynisfjara’s volcanic black sandy beach and spotting whales and dolphins on a tranquil cruise. As well as being warmer and drier in summer, July and August is the ideal season for wildlife spotting.

Blue Lagoon, Iceland


Many visitors to this wonderful island never experience its undiscovered side, but on this Malta Uncovered tour we feel we have created a superb balance of interests ranging from a wonderfully varied history, unique scenery and atmospheric old towns, all in an ideal destination in which to relax. From the capital of Valletta to tranquil Gozo, be inspired by this incredible itinerary.

Adriatic Yacht Cruises

We are also feeling positive that Croatia may move from amber to green status this summer meaning our yacht cruises this summer can go ahead as planned. So you can simply secure your booking with a deposit and look forward to a yacht experience to remember, safe in the knowledge that if we can’t take you on holiday for any reason you’ll be able to transfer to a later date or choose a full refund.  

Split, Croatia
