National Geographic picks Malta as Best Trip for 2017

As travellers look to the new year ahead with calendars at hand and start planning adventures to new places of exploration, National Geographic has compiled its list of Best Trips for 2017 brimming with travel inspiration. The tiny island nation of Malta has topped its list as one of the Culture destinations to head to in 2017, and with its rich historical heritage, clear Mediterranean waters and warm Maltese smiles, it comes as no surprise.

With its mild temperatures throughout the year and an annual calendar packed with events that include Carnival in February, traditional village festas throughout summer, and musical festivals that range from the Valletta International Baroque Festival (January) to the Isle of MTV mega-concert (June), this little rock is bursting with offerings for all tastes and preferences.

Book your flights, settle into one of Locanda La Gelsomina's tranquil suites, and set off on Maltese adventures that are sure to delight and astound.
