5 More Top Adventure Holiday Ideas

Sep 13, 2008
A few months ago, I published an article on some of the best activity holidays in the world. Here's 5 more great choices for those seeking further adventure!

Biking - The Hills of Tuscany

Perhaps the most beautiful part of Italy, the hills of Tuscany are a great place to explore on a mountain biking holiday. Thick oak forests and vineyards cover large parts of Tuscany, and there are numerous old fashioned towns and churches for those who like to see a little man-made beauty along the way. Most cycling activity holidays to Tuscany will be of moderate difficulty, as a typical route will take in many steep hills. But don't worry about the challenge - the region is justly famed for its wine and delicious cuisine, so cyclists in Tuscany will have plenty of incentives to reach the next rest stop! Cyclists looking for a family activity holiday might do well to choose the route along the Danube in Germany, which offers similar outstanding scenery with less hills...

Hiking - Inca Trail

You can hike all over the world, but if you're looking for an adventure holiday with a difference, the walk along the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu is something of a pilgrimage for serious hikers. Although there is always a sense of anticipation and excitement with one of the world's greatest wonders is at the end of the walk, the trip itself is an amazing experience with a wonderful combination of mystery, history and stunning natural beauty. An absolute must for hikers looking for an adventure holiday to match their dreams.

Surfing - Australia's Gold Coast

Nicknamed the surfers' paradise, Australia's Gold Coast is the dream location for tourists looking to make surfing the focus of their activity holiday. Gold Coast City is found in the southeast of Queensland and boasts a subtropical climate with perfect conditions for surfers: 70km of beaches and four outstanding break points combine to make this THE spot to go for surfing enthusiasts.

Skiing - The Three Valleys in France

For skiers, the Three Valleys is pretty hard to beat. A massive 600km of ski slopes, 200 ski lifts and 8 resorts means that all abilities are catered to. From hardcore ski enthusiasts to (almost) complete beginners, the three valleys are perfect for a family activity holiday, and there's enough here to keep skiers returning time and time again.

Diving - The Maldives

Although everyone has a different view on this, for me you can't beat diving in the Maldives. The warm, calm waters make it perfect for family activity holidays, while experienced divers can give themselves a greater challenge by heading out for a wall dive amongst the strong currents of Banana Reef. Everyone else will find the variety of dive sites the region has to offer simply glorious in their own right though, and this is one of the few places in the world where you're almost guaranteed to see the 14 foot manta ray!

Of course there are many more sports to be undertaken on your activity holiday travels, but with a good mix of land and sea across the world, this should give you a taste for bigger and more daring things. What are you waiting for?
