13-Course Vegan Holiday Menu at Hotel Ranga, Iceland

Known as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights on the south coast of Iceland, Hotel Ranga is reintroducing its vegan Christmas menu this year. In place of its famous annual weekend Christmas Buffet leading up to the holiday, the hotel launched a gourmet, 13-course menu. The vegan dishes, one for each Yule Lad (Iceland’s version of Santa yet in the form of mischievous, troll-like brothers with peculiar names), feature the likes of cinnamon-marinated beetroot and veggie meatballs.

Vibrant & Vegan Chefs Table in St. Maarten

As the “hub” of the Caribbean, St. Maarten is a melting pot of different cultures which is reflected in the food you can find on the island.

Restaurants are expanding offerings as the island is seeing an influx of locally grown vegetables, making the vegan movement emerge at the forefront of the culinary scene. Must-visit restaurants for vegan food are Ital Shack, Freegan Food Cafe and The Flavor Academy.

The Party Starts Late and Lasts Past Dawn in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina, comes to life at night. Translating to “good airs” or “fair winds,” Buenos Aires is an autonomous district filled to the brim with eclectic European architecture and a rich cultural life. The multicultural city, a melting pot of language, history, incredible food and music, comes to life at night. When you travel to Buenos Aires, be prepared to eat late, choose from hundreds of restaurants and thousands of bars and clubs, and dance beyond dawn. The city’s nightlife, as varied as it is intense, allows you to dance to whatever rhythm takes your fancy. A city that oozes sex appeal, it proves dynamic and passionate, and the beauty and rhythm will get under your skin for an amazing trip.
