Are you thinking of trying a new type of holiday? Sick of package bucket and spade? We have put together a list of examples to hopefully inspire you!
Tick something off your bucket list and drive a Mustang down the infamous Route 66 or why not go even more daring and hire a Harley Davidson? Go even further and rent a campervan to tour all around Australia at your leisure.
Trekking & Walking
Venture to the Andes in Peru and trek along the Inca trail to the 15th Century Machu Pichu. Or stay a little closer to home and visit Italy to discover the Amalfi Coast up close.
Is the Rugby World Cup Sevens something you could tackle? Or is a race from Texas to Malaysia to see the Formula 1 more your style? Sporting holidays can take you all over the world but you won’t have to go far to have a ball at Wimbledon and join a tennis tour.
Why stick to one when you can do them all? Mixed activity holidays are a great way to test the waters (literally) and try new things. For example, visit Vietnam and cruise, dip, walk, climb and crawl to discover everything Vietnam has to offer. This also offers the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the locals and their culture. Something different and probably un-thought of is to kayak, canyon, bike and hike on the beautiful Turquoise coast of Turkey. Visit the impressive Saklikent Gorge and Patara National Park, then use the free time to relax and rejuvenate ready for the next adventure.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Probably most popular and well-known ski destination is Austria. It’s highest resorts are Kuhtai, Obergurgle, Obertauern and Galtir and pretty much ‘snowsure’. Canada is becoming an even more popular ski resort for Brits. Perhaps this is because all of Canada’s resorts are picturesque, state of the art and well maintained, not to mention Canada has year-round skiing conditions. A different destination would certainly be Japan. It is legendary for champagne powder and tree-lined skiing, followed by some of the biggest snowfalls in the world. Hakuba (4 hours from Tokyo) and Miseko, Rustsu and Furano (Hokkaido) are the most popular. Stays include a hotel with its own fun fair and stereotypical Japanese tourist culture.
