Now that spring is officially here, it is time to head outside, enjoy the warm weather, and start thinking about some adventurous escapes. Thankfully, National Geographic is here to help, as the writers at Nat Geo Travel have compiled 10 great trips for the spring.

As usual with any list like this one, NG provides plenty of information on not just where to go, but when and why as well. Each entry in the list includes suggestions on where to stay, what to eat, and the things you absolutely should not miss while you’re there. These helpful tidbits will make it easier in planning your escape, and give you an idea of what to expect when you arrive.

So where exactly should we be headed this spring? I won’t give away the entire list, but I will share a couple of suggestions from the National Geographic staff. They include Sicily, Italy for the UNESCO World Heritage sites; the Falkland Islands for the amazing wildlife; and San Sebastián, Spain for the excellent food. They also give a nod to Great Basin National Park in Nevada, and the Futaleufú River in Patagonia, Chile for some of the world’s best white water rafting.

One of the best parts about the arrival of spring is that it represents new possibilities for the year ahead. These suggestions from National Geographic are just that – new possibilities for travel. There are plenty of other great places to choose from as well, and hopefully you are already thinking about where you would like to go next. I know I am!
