Great Escapes is a new travel and lifestyle series that combines a look at the worlds most extraordinary places to stay with expert insight and gorgeous travelogue. Its a perfect watch for anyone with wanderlust or who is planning a holiday, while its entertaining approach is great TV for people interested in anything from different cultures to interior design. Each episode, engaging career travellers introduce three amazing and original escapes in three very different locations. They travel to Peru to visit the Skylodge - three transparent luxury guest capsules clinging 450 metres up the side of a sheer cliff. They also check into the Treehotel in Sweden which lets guests sleep high in the canopy and a hotel in Finland where holidaymakers can snuggle down in a glass-topped igloo. They discover an architectural wonder that provides great serenity for travellers in Bali, as well as a private island in French Polynesia that offers the chance to live like a movie star. Also, Great Escapes visits Sanctuary Baines in Botswana for an up-close-and-personal experience with the countrys incredible wildlife, gets a luxurious take on shepherding at a working farm in New Zealand and heads to Antarctica on board the Sergey Vavilov, a converted Russian research vessel offering surprisingly spacious cabins and a wildlife experience thats out of this world. Travelling to all seven continents, the series checks out every type of aspirational accommodation imaginable, from the ultimate in luxury to amazing budget finds. Each is unique and extraordinary and, if you are lucky enough to stay in one, youd definitely find something to write home about!
