Good to go: The real rawhide
Wednesday 16 March 2011
If the Coen brothers sparked a desire to experience the Wild West with True Grit, then you might be tempted by Ranch Rider's holidays. A stay at Lonesome Spur, in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains in Montana, lets you play at being a cowboy by helping with calving and rounding up cattle during spring. A week, with all meals, activities and transfers included, costs £679 per person and is valid for a start date of 23 or 24 April. Flights not included.
Stretch your legs further than economy with BMI's business class flight sale, which runs until Friday. With returns to bohemian Berlin starting at £169 per person, and longer distance flights available to Beirut from £699, you'll be sauntering out of the arrivals gate relaxed and ready to start your trip. Sale fares are valid for travel between 16 April and 2 May. Other destinations include the airline's new routes to Bergen (pictured above) and Stavanger in Norway, and Casablanca.
BA Holidays' Caribbean sale continues. A seven-night stay at the newly refurbished Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa in Montego Bay, gets you all-inclusive access to eight bars, six restaurants, five pools, tennis courts, a gym and the hotel's new "Lighthouse" waterslide – for £819 per person. Return flights from Gatwick departing from 8 May–24 June are also included.
