Tipi Adventures has wilderness experiences for all ages

January is normally the month when we dream of escaping the dark skies and chill of winter and plan that sun-soaked holiday, city break or long-haul adventure.

But there is nothing normal about this January. With lockdown extended, a strict 5km limit on Irish journeys, and foreign travel limited to essential trips only, we're all feeling the need to get away - even if it's only in our imaginations. With that in mind, our travel experts Catherine Murphy and Andrea Smith have compiled 30 great trips to put on your bucket list.
