Love doing sweet nothing? No? Me neither, which is why I head for the hills/lakes/mountains/forests/ocean (delete as appropriate) at every opportunity. In the summer and in-between seasons, our high achievers offer rugged variety as well as all the comfort and convenience you could possibly wish for, while in winter, you’ll carve your niche in the hottest ski areas. If you love the mountains in winter, give them a go without the snow. From cycling holidays, walking holidays and climbing holidays to stand-up paddleboarding, boating and ballooning, we leave no trail uncovered.
Our Niche Destinations are in the most attractive activity holiday locations: from national parks to Alpine idylls, exotic beaches to mountain lakes: exploration and adventure are tops. The Alps are the perfect playground for the outwardly bound, with thousands of miles of cycling, mountain biking and hiking, brilliant bouldering and rock climbing, as well as fishing, all the water sports you could wish for in crystal-clear waters, and space to let your mind wander in complete tranquillity. Fashionable and fun, SUP, rafting and canyoning are for the adventurous of heart and mind. Plus, you’ll find the mountains are just as liberally sprinkled with the most amazing huts and refuges in summer as they are during your skiing holiday – and we know the best and quirkiest ones to go to. Cheese spaetzle: I’ll just leave this one here for you to ponder.
If all that mountain talk is giving you vertigo, head closer to sea level where surfing, flyboarding, horse-riding, scuba diving and quad biking are the awesome accompaniments to all the ocean has to offer.
The perfect end to an activity holiday day, in our humble opinion, is a magnificent meal in complete comfort as well as muscle-soothing treatments to ready you for the next day’s adventure. Which is why we’ve uncovered the coolest places for you to rest your head during your outdoor holiday.
