New Highland Base Hotel

Slated to open this July, Highland Base sits deep in Iceland’s central highlands of Kerlingarfjöll. Here, you’ll find glacial rivers, steaming geothermal valleys, snow fields and panoramic vistas. Comprised of a hotel, lodges, hostel and camping accommodations, Highland Base will also include an on-site restaurant and new geothermal baths opening this October. While staying at the property, guests can enjoy direct access to hiking, biking and off-road adventures. Book the Highlands and Lowlands itinerary with Discover the World to see popular spots on Iceland’s Ring Road and stay at this new hotel.

New Electric Tours

Discover the World recently added an electric option on self-driving trip for this summer. With zero-emission car rentals, these trips use the country’s smart infrastructure of fast-charging points. With practically all of Iceland’s electricity generated from renewable sources, travelers can embark on a seven-night self-driving tour this summer.

New Icelandic Geothermal Trail

A wide range of new bathing experiences officially opened across Iceland over the last few years, adding even more options to enjoy geothermal bathing. Discover the World’s new Icelandic Geothermal Trail shows travelers how to create a road trip centered around 12 geothermal hot spots. The trail begins in Reykjavik and ends in Egilsstaðir in the east. Stops include a part of hot spring pools at Canyon Baths at Husafell, a soak in beer at Bjorbodin Beer Spa in Siglufjordur, a trip to Geosea at Husavik and time in Nature Baths by Lake Mývatn.

Just south of the San Diego-Tijuana border, El Cielo Resort and Winery is located in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico’s most celebrated wine region. Going to this hidden gem is easy, as you can take a two-hour drive from San Diego or fly into Ensenada Airport and take the short, scenic drive to the resort. Upon entrance to the resort, you are surrounded by 1,640 feet of lush vineyards, but most awe-dropping is its location between two stunning mountain ranges.
