Peak season has become Eek! season in so many destinations around the world. And it’s getting worse.
Instagram is bursting with travel inspiration and the explosion of low-cost airlines makes it so much easier to get up and go.
But luxury travel’s all about exclusivity and that’s hard to find when you’re lost in the crowd. You want to feel one IN a million, not one OF a million.
At Low Season Go Season, we’ll help you get in the know about where to go. We’ll tell you stories that inspire and give you tips for travelling like an off-season pro.
We’ll share news on the hotels that bring their low-season to life in wonderfully creative ways. We’ll tell you about places you’ve never been and others you might not know as well as you think. We’ll give you the gen on festivals, retreats and events designed to bring the low season to life.
And if you don’t want to go anywhere, that’s fine too – come along for the ride and we’ll bring the beauty of our off-season world to life, just for you.
A favourite summer playground of the American aristocrats, Nantucket is heaving from Memorial Day (last Monday in May) to Labor Day (first Monday in September). Take a trip in late September and you’ll enjoy empty beaches, safe cycling, the best restaurant tables and markets full of pumpkins.
Venice keeps hitting the headlines as one of the world’s worst tourism bottlenecks. The main tourist pathways are virtually impassible during the summer months and locals leave the city in droves. Check out the city in the cooler months and you’ll find a much more convivial city with a true Italian flavour.
This breathtaking Cambodian temple complex gets twice as many visitors in the dry months of November and December as rainy June and July and we’re talking a difference of thousands per day. Brave the rains and you’ll be rewarded with less dust, temples to yourselves and the most incredible light.
February brings superb snow conditions to the Alps but also crowded slopes. Towards the end of March, snow can get sketchy. But choose a resort like Chamonix where your non-ski options are plentiful and your worst case scenario could be a day soaking in a world class spa or enjoying a long mountain lunch.

Already done with the cold winter days and dreaming of winter warmer escapes? It’s late January and, for many of us, the most challenging time of the year. Intentions for 2020 are high yet temperatures are low. It’s dark when we wake up, dark when we go to sleep and it’s not easy to drag ourselves from the snug sanctuary of our beds. We’re all a little weary after the holiday season. We’ve made our resolutions for the year and need to start seeing them through. But it’s so hard to get the...read more
