With our holidays usually the most highly-anticipated time of the year, why not try something different for your next break? You can make the most of your annual leave with an adventure holiday that you’ll be telling stories about for years to come.
Here are four alternative holiday ideas to get you excited for your next adventure:
We’re big fans of walking holidays as they’re the perfect chance to escape from the modern world and get closer to nature. With so many stunning National Parks and areas of historical importance to discover around the world, exploring a country by foot is a great way to see beautiful sights that you may not have spotted otherwise.
Whether you want to stay in the UK, or venture further afield to Asia, Africa or South America, it will barely feel like you’re doing any exercise at all when you find your perfect walking holiday.
Perhaps not a traditional holiday choice for an adventure goer, a cruise can give you the perfect chance to experience a number of different far-flung destinations on just one holiday.
With cruises available that will take you from Cape Town in South Africa to Mombasa in Kenya, or from Singapore to Vietnam and Bangkok – there’s plenty of chance for adventure, with some liners offering overnight stays in certain destinations. Plus, you’ll have the comfort of staying in one cabin whilst you travel between all these exciting destinations!
One of the best ways to experience what Europe has to offer is by buying an interrail pass – it means that you can travel by rail between a number of different countries including Hungary, Portugal, Sweden, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and many more.
With reduced ferry fares and discounts on hostels included with the pass, you can travel on a budget whilst tailoring your own itinerary to include everything you want to see.
Planning a road trip, whether in the UK or abroad, is a fun holiday option for those looking for adventure. With the opportunity to plan your own route and itinerary, you’re sure to feel a sense of freedom when you hit the open road.
There’s so much to discover off the beaten track when you choose to go on the road. For example, you could explore the remote areas of Scotland on the North Coast 500 route and places you didn’t know existed, despite them being right on our doorstep!
Get your bags packs and itinerary planned for an adventure-filled holiday. Whether you choose to stay close to home or you want to explore an exotic, far-flung destination, your holiday will be an exciting change from the average when you choose one of our four alternative holiday ideas.
