Beyond the city: four back-to-nature daytrips


Combine your next city break with an outdoor adventure, whether it’s lounging in a hot spring or scaling a volcano.

To truly appreciate the city, you sometimes need to get away from it. While a week in the wilderness might not be on the cards, even a day trip can work wonders to help you recharge, see things differently and feel at one with nature. That might mean exchanging New York’s skyscrapers for soaring mountain vistas, drifting over the desert outside Marrakech or getting up close to a glacier. Whatever your version of urban escapism, these four day trips deliver.
