Taking place in locations across the world that you' may never have even heard of, these are the tours you'll never forget. For instance, did you know that in Azerbaijan you can visit a flaming mountain that has been burning since 1950? Or that in one of the world's coldest places on Earth there is a mammoth graveyard where the remains of mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, bison, cave lions and woolly rhinoceros can be found just lying around on the ground? These are not your average fly and flop holidays...

If a trip to Antarctica wasn't unusual enough, this year you can snorkel the icy waters of the White Continent, or even try stand-up paddleboarding. And adventure travellers will love a trip to Turkmenistan, where it is possible to camp out next to the 'Door to Hell'.
