The 10 best November getaways
This time of year offers a varied range of destinations, each more exciting than the next. From India to Iceland, Italy, Morocco, New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa, Andalusia, Cuba or Miami, you can't go wrong.
November brings us a little closer to winter and the cold. What could be better to ease the autumn depression than flying to other horizons? It's also an opportunity to break away from everyday life and enrich oneself by meeting other cultures.
With its exceptional climate (temperatures almost never fall below 20║C) it's possible to lounge on the beach all year round. Miami's shores are among the most beautiful in the world with a cellophane seawater and miles of fine sand. The city is a great place to celebrate anything and everything, as it's known for its hopping nightlife. What is less well known, however, is that Miami is also a city of art with its many galleries and an Art Deco district. In addition, its proximity to the tropical paradise of the Florida Keys is a huge plus for those looking to escape the doldrums of the coming winter.
November is one of the best times to discover India. The end of the monsoon season brings on mild and dry weather with the exception of the far north and the southeast coast, which come into their own later on in the year. India is the ideal destination if you are looking for an authentic change of scenery.
You could be sunbathing in three and a half hours time if you choose to fly to Morocco. Both temperatures and prices are mild this time of year. It is an ideal destination for small budgets, especially in November. For less than 40 pounds, you can enjoy a night in a splendid hotel smack in the middle of Marrakech. It is also an opportunity to taste traditional Moroccan cuisine: rich in flavour and colour, and always at a low price.
Outside the high season, Cuba is a relatively inexpensive and pleasant destination. The country has miles of white sandy beaches, clear blue waters, charming remote towns and the best cigars in the world.
Italy is full of incredible cities, each one more stunning than the last. Rome, Venice, Milan, Naples, Florence and many others are the perfect excuse for a city break in November. A few hours away by flight, a cultural and culinary paradise awaits you for an unforgettable long weekend.
Argentina is one of the most beautiful countries in South America, which is high praise next to nations like Chile, Peru and Brazil. Once there, you can enjoy both the sea and the mountains. From the Iguaz˙ Falls to the Andes Cordillera, through the Patagonian steppes and down to the Atlantic coast, Argentina's natural landscapes are among the most impressive in the world.
Did you know that Andalusia is the warmest region in Europe? Take the opportunity to enjoy some Mediterranean heat in the middle of autumn. In addition to its climate, Seville describes itself as a charming city that seduces with its authenticity and rich historical heritage.
If you're going to leave, you might as well go very far away. New Zealand offers breathtaking landscapes unique in the world, with perfectly preserved fauna and flora. Nature lovers will be amazed by its beauty and biodiversity. In addition, New Zealand's climate is the polar opposite of ours, literally! November is New Zealand's late spring, so you won't be cold. A change of scenery guaranteed!
November is the best time to travel to South Africa. The temperatures are ideal for enjoying the lush nature and the country's many national parks. The latter is one of the few places where you can observe animals in their natural habitats.
How can we talk about Iceland without mentioning its sublime northern lights? November is precisely the right time to observe this fabulous natural spectacle. It's a unique experience that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. But Iceland is also known for its natural hot springs, where time seems to stand still to enjoy the beauty of the landscape. It's the ultimate natural destination!
