Top Activity Holidays Abroad

Aug 4, 2008
Activity holidays are a popular option for adventure seekers looking for an alternative to a beach or city break. They are an excellent way of trying out new and exciting sports, or just spending time enjoying what you love doing.

No matter what time of year it is, there are many options. Why not try your hand at sailing, scuba diving, or perhaps a winter sport, such as skiing or snowboarding. There are a vast number of operators specialising in activity holidays, including Mark Warner, Kuoni, Neilson and Sunsail.

Here are just a few ideas for activity holidays abroad:

Sail the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia
Croatia is one of the best places to sail in the Mediterranean and the Dalmatian Coast offers an ideal sailing experience. The coast is serviced by over 500 harbours and 50 marinas, and with over 1000 islands there are a multitude of beaches and bays to explore.

Ski or snowboard in Whistler, Canada
Whistler and the Blackcomb Mountains in Canada is an excellent ski resort and is the largest ski area in North America. With over 200 ski runs it caters for everyone. It also offers the longest ski season in Canada and one of the most advanced lift systems in the world.

Scuba dive in the Red Sea, Egypt
The Red Sea attracts divers and snorkelers from around the world and is considered to be one of the best diving spots in the marine world. The Red Sea is a popular destination due to the vast coral gardens, the deep blue canyons and the famous wrecks such as the Dunraven and Thistlegorm. It is also home to more than 1100 species of fish, 10% of which are only found in the Red Sea.

Trek Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Mount Kilimanjaro, situated in the far north of Tanzania, is the highest peak in Africa standing at 5895 metres. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a great challenge and can be accomplished by individuals without any specialist mountaineering skills. There are several routes used to climb Kilimanjaro, the most popular being the Marangu route.

Mountain biking in the Alps, France
Cycling holidays in the French Alps have become increasingly popular due to the scenic routes and the vast number of mountain biking trails on offer. The ski lift system allows easy access for high level trails which are perfect for downhill bikers. Throughout the summer the cross-country ski trails become ideal low level mountain biking trails.
