Start planning for 2016…
Looking for an adventure holiday in 2016? We have selected a handful of activities for you to try, no matter how adventurous you are.
Sailing – Croatia (Dubrovnik)
Croatia offers an amazing array of secluded bays, beautiful pebble beaches and miles and miles of coastline to explore. The city of Dubrovnik is the ideal place to begin your adventure holiday as it is steeped in history. It has preserved much of it’s rich heritage making it one of the Mediterranean’s most attractive cities.
From the port you can also access a huge amount of this beautiful coastline in less than an hours sail, making it perfect for day trips and short breaks.
Snowboarding – Austria (Mayrhofen)
This resort caters for both the early bird and party night owl. With wide open slopes and a highly rated terrain park, it offers powder hungry riders ideal conditions after a fresh snowfall, or the perfect play area for trick happy snowboarders looking for their next adrenalin rush.
From an Apres-Ski perspective, it certainly hits the spot. With the Snowbombing Festival now building it’s reputation as a Glastonbury-on-snow, Mayrhofen offers more than just the usual array of bars for all night dancing and partying.
Whitewater Rafting – Canada/Alaska (Alsek and Tatshenshini Rivers)
Nothing can really compete with the Tatshenshini-Alsek River. The stunning wildlife, magnificent scenery and challenging route will serve you up a trip that will be hard to match. Navigating icebergs, whitewater rapids and glacial braids will truly bring you back to mother nature and if it doesn’t, the abundance of wildlife will. Brown bears, wolves and bald eagles are an everyday occurrence so keep that waterproof camera on the ready.
Diving – Thailand (Surin and Similan Islands)
Thailand is great for adventure holidays, especially scuba diving. With plenty of islands to explore, the abundance of sea life is staggering. In the Andaman sea there is a string of islands that offer a huge choice of dive sites that are rarely visited. Here you will find whale sharks, mantas and all varieties of fish to keep you occupied.
Mountain Biking – Scotland (Fort William)
Mountain biking is much easier when you don’t have to carry your bike all the way up the mountain. That’s why at Fort Bill (what most riders call it), they have the UK’s only permanent gondola uplift, providing you with no excuse not to try one of the most challenging downhill tracks you’ll ever find. If that wasn’t enough, there is some fantastic free riding and dirt jumping plus a gorgeous cross-county course for you to experience. And to top it off, they also host numerous international mountain bike championships here, that’s how good it is. Get riding.
