If you are looking for adventure in 2017, be it in an igloo, staying up in treetops, sleeping in luxury under canvas on the edge of a beach, you won’t fail to be impressed by my selection of the 10 best luxury adventure lodges around the world.

Try the luxury wilderness lodge of the Sal Salis set in the dunes which border the beach and the Ningaloo reef. Enjoy a red kangaroo grazing amongst the dunes, the beautiful song of a butcherbird or a humpback whale breaching just beyond the reef. Before breakfast, pop on your snorkel gear and paddle into a world of reef sharks, turtles clownfish, manta rays and dolphins.

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is the perfect hotel to watch the Northern lights from. If falling asleep under the aurora borealis sounds like an idyllic but impossible dream (given the extreme cold found at these latitudes) think again.

At Instants d’Absolu Ecolodge & Spa, immerse yourself in the scenic grandeur of the Auvergne Volcanoe Reserve and explore the wilderness of Pinatelle on foot, on horseback, on a mountain bike or cani-kart – which is dog sledging on wheels.

Hacienda & Ecolodge Morgan’s Rock is also a gem on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. here you can enjoy a 4,000 acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle and on the shores of the most idyllic golden sand beach. Watch howler monkeys, languorous sloths hanging from the trees, and vibrant tropical birds from your tree house. In the evenings enjoy beach bonfires or witness baby turtles hatchlings scurrying out to sea on the star lit beach.
