Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Ambitious, determined, and strong. You don’t let anything stand in your way, especially not Morocco’s highest peak, Mt Toubkal. It’ll take someone as relentless as you to conquer this high-altitude adventure while making it look (mostly) effortless. Reward yourself for a hike well done by visiting the souks of Marrakech or booking a hammam experience that will no doubt impress your high standards.
Recommended tour: Climb Mt Toubkal
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The altruistic side of you is being beckoned to the happiest country in the world. Take a moment and embrace the kingdom of Bhutan, a place where the happiness and wellbeing of residents is measured every five years. Learn about its historical significance and enjoy scenic hikes to Taktsang Monastery and Chimi Lhakhang Temple. Your optimism and peaceful nature won’t go unnoticed by locals and exploring the ancient traditions gives you the chance to reconnect with your unique self.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Is there a better destination to focus your daydreams on than Greece? No need to fantasize about this one though. Island hop around Mykonos, Santorini, and all those sun-bleached islands in between like Tinos and Naxos. There’s no way your creative side won’t be inspired after indulging in ouzo cocktails and witnessing magnificent Oia sunsets. You listen to your gut, and right now it’s telling you to get some saganaki.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
You’re daring, bold and maybe just a little bit impulsive. While Kruger National Park isn’t necessarily the place for your spontaneity (please don’t jump out of the car), we just know you’re going to love cruising around looking through your binoculars. With about 100 mammal species for you to find, one thing is for sure, those elephants and lions are just as clever and social as you are.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
The intimate connections with the people in your life are what makes you loyal. While you might not always enjoy large crowds, we can’t help but think you’ll overlook a vessel filled with 150 people in order to voyage to Antarctica — our planet’s last frontier. Hop into a zodiac and keep an eye out for waddling penguins and surfacing whales as you learn how to protect this remarkable continent as fiercely as you protect your loved ones.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You thrive on having the spotlight on you, but now it’s time to share it with the majestic beauty of Hawaii. Your sunny personality is well suited to snorkelling with the fish, turtles, and starfish (you’re not the only star around these parts). Discover the North Shore food trucks or the Road to Hana and bask in the luxury that you know you love.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
As a practical person who appreciates order, you’ll definitely feel at home in Japan.

The perfectionist and hard worker in you will be fulfilled as you learn about the culture, customs, and traditions on your journey.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re known for being charming and what’s more charming than the Amalfi Coast? Not one to shy away from generosity to others, it’s time to spoil yourself with a margherita pizza in Naples before making the coastal drive along the breathtaking southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. You’ll find the vacation balance you’re looking for with a guided tour of Pompeii and a limoncello tasting in Sorrento.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You’re determined and brave and those are the characteristics you need before embarking on a life-changing adventure to a country that is 80% uninhabited. A place that feels like nowhere else on Earth, Iceland is the perfect destination for someone as bold as you. Trek through Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, hike up Skógafoss waterfall, and visit the Múlagljúfur Canyon. While you can occasionally be secretive, this is one thing you’ll be telling everyone about.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
A magnet for a good time, you’re the friendliest person in the room. There’s no doubt you’d fit in visiting a place fondly known as the Land of Smiles. Thailand has hundreds of islands and while you can’t visit them all in one go, you definitely have the energy to hop around the west coast, snorkelling at Ko Chueak and exploring the small town of Krabi. The adventurous side of you be satisfied and your friendship circle will grow.
