The new year is still a few days away, but you’re already thinking about your resolution. You could restart your workout routine at the gym. It probably won’t be long until you get bored running on the treadmill again, though. So this year, you should give your goal a fighting chance by exercising outside whenever possible. Bonus points when you can add it to an already-in-the-works vacation.
Ciudad Perdida: After exploring Colombia’s oldest city, hike through the jungle, past indigenous communities, over rushing rivers, and up steep ascents to find the Lost City.
Bourg des Saintes: Extend your time on Guadeloupe to visit its Îles des Saintes, where you’ll find Le Chameau, an old watchtower, incredible views, and, eventually, a serene beach.
Cooper Island: Find gorgeous views of the British Virgin Islands, narrow strips of land connecting little islands, and beaches strewn with pretty shells on an island that’s practically deserted—except for a little beach club that’s a perfect happy hour spot.
Windermere: Escape politics in the United States, follow meandering paths through elegant gardens, and hike around crystal-clear lakes in England’s Lake District before returning to your own spa lodge at your hotel.
