The 21st century is pretty tame compared to how life on Earth looked in times gone by. If the prospect of another summer vacation on the Costa del Sol gets you yawning, perhaps you’d prefer a trip through time to a more adventurous epoch?

Let’s take a look at what’s on offer to the time-travelling tourist with a limitless budget!

Jurassic Age
The biggest animals the world has ever known roamed the Earth 150 million years ago. From being trodden underfoot by a Brachiosaurus to being eaten alive by a vicious 40-foot long Allosaurus, danger is everywhere! You’ll want to keep your foot on the gas as you safari through the Jurassic Age.

Ice Age
The last ice age peaked 21,000 years ago giving every hill and mountain off-piste potential. The land roamed with giants, from the Saber Toothed Tiger to the Woolly Mammoth. So strap on your skis and set your goggles straight, you’re about to witness nature at one of its most extremes.

Neanderthals
The Cueva de El Castillo in Spain is home to the oldest known cave paintings in the world. But rather than marvel at today’s remains, why not travel back 41,000 years and take an art class with the Neanderthals? Paint (natural earth pigments) will be provided by your hosts.

Markets of Pompeii
Two thousand years ago, the ‘Macellum’ of Pompeii was a thriving marketplace. Foodies will love the authentic Roman Empire bustle as you haggle for figs and olives, and hang around for a sacrificial feast in the evening. But be sure to get out of there by 79AD – Mount Vesuvius is about to blow!

Old Wild West
Bannack, Montana at the peak of the gold rush: the quintessential wild west town, complete with saloons, blacksmiths and a corrupt sheriff. You can make it big if you stay lucky in 1860s Bannack – with all those gamblers and bandits, it makes an ideal setting for your Stag or Hen party.

Atlantis
Travelling back through time is easy. Finding your way to the lost city of Atlantis is a different case. If you can figure out where it is, you’ll know for sure when you visit the ivory and gold pillars of the Temple of Poseidon.

Europa
Jupiter’s sixth-closest moon has good potential for sustaining life. If NASA’s Human Outer Planets Exploration program takes place in the 2040s as hoped, there could be good infrastructure for space and time tourism by the year 2117. Imagine sipping on your morning tea, watching Jupiter rise over you – spectacular!
