Whether you are a daring solo traveller who cannot get enough of water sports or whether you are one half of a power couple who can’t say ‘no’ to a challenging hike in the countryside, you will probably be keen to go on a holiday that allows you to do what you love – stay active and perhaps go on a new adventure or two! With that in mind, these are some of the best holiday destinations for travellers who need to keep moving.
The UK is most often celebrated for its spectacular sightseeing. However, it is also one of the best possible destinations to choose if you would like to go on a walking holiday. From the Lake District to the Yorkshire Three Peaks and, of course, summiting Snowden, the options are practically endless. Walking holidays are also great because they allow you to see a stunning new country or city from a different perspective while on foot. Do some research and you are bound to find a couple of award-winning walking holidays that appeal to you.
Croatia is the leading holiday destination for people who are keen to try their hand at white water rafting. Tackle the violent waters with confidence as you conquer the rapids and see some rather beautiful sights along the way. Plitvice Lakes National Park is where you want to be as this is where the Zrmanja and Una rivers can be found – two of the choppiest and most talked about rivers within the worldwide white-water rafting community.
If you would prefer something a little bit more low key, why not consider a spot of cycling? You can explore every nook and cranny of Vietnam aboard a bicycle any time of the year. Cycling is, after all, a way of life for most locals living in South East Asia. Travellers who have already been there and done that would recommend that you start your cycling adventure in the town of Dalat and take a week to pedal your way across the length of the coast until you reach the quaint heritage town of Hoi An.
Italy is home to a myriad of hiking trails, all varying in difficulty. It is also home to the Dolomites – a majestic mountain range in the North East. Anyone can hike their way to the top regardless of how experienced they are. However, it isn’t an activity recommended for those who are afraid of heights!
Surf's up in Bali, and Ulu Watu, in particular. This area is well known for its intensive, towering waves, giving even the hardiest of surfers a run for their money. It is also where you will find the mysterious Ulu Watu temple which sits nestled on a craggy cliff just above the waters. When you're done catching those waves, be sure to go on a short, scenic hike to explore all that it has to offer.
Now that you know where to go for various active holidays, it’s time to get moving when it comes to planning them! Book your tickets today…
