Destination Inspiration

Enjoy local cuisine, history and culture while you keep your body moving with a variety of different activities.
Here are a few ideas to inspire you:

  • Peru: Trek the famed Inca trail, or choose a high-altitude trek in the Andes Mountains. Kayak on Lake Titicaca. Go horseback riding, white water rafting, parasailing or mountain biking.
  • Ecuador: Kayak, swim, snorkel, or hike in the Galapagos Islands, visiting some of the most amazing wildlife on earth!
  • Costa Rica: Hike through rainforests, kayak through mangroves, get an extra thrill with white water rafting, canyoneering or ziplining!
  • Uganda: Trek to find gorillas deep in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or seek out other primates, insects and birds on jungle hikes.
  • Portugal: Enjoy a leisurely coastal hike in the Algarve. Cycle the Douro Valley wine region. Hike the calderas and volcanoes of the Azores, or the rugged coasts of Madeira. Let’s not forget surfing, snorkeling and diving!
  • Italy: Sip prosecco on a walking and wine tour in Tuscany. Hike the famed Walk of the God’s on the Amalfi Coast. Take to the mountains on the Mont Blanc Circuit in the Alps.
  • Vietnam: Cycle your way to quaint fishing villages. Kayak among towering karsts in beautiful bays or meet the locals in the north on a hilltribe trek.
  • New Zealand: Skydiving, bungee jumping, day hikes or week-long hikes. It’s one of the best destinations in the world for active adventures.

What to Expect

Active adventures are for all activity levels, but it’s important to get the right trip for you. If you walk every day, but aren’t overly fit, you might enjoy a leisurely hiking or cycling itinerary with lots of stops and flat terrain.

If you consider yourself fit and want a challenge each day, we’ll find you a mountainous region, longer treks, or higher peaks!

You can choose the safety and camaraderie of a group tour, with the added value of a local guide. Or choose a leisurely self-guided itinerary. Either way, the logistics will be sorted for you. On a centre-based trip you stay at one locally owned lodge, farm or guest house throughout your itinerary. You take active trips each day to different nearby areas. If you’d prefer we can find you a trip where you walk or cycle between your accommodations each day. Don’t worry, your luggage will be transported for you, so you only need your day pack.

Self-guided trips provide route notes to follow, but your time is your own. Guided trips are more structured. There’s also van support, if you need a break from cycling.

Mountains or coasts, challenging or relaxing, wildlife or Medieval towns … the choice is yours. No one said it will be easy to choose, but we’re here to help.

Accessible communication

“We have relied on Shari for more than five years to organize family holidays, couple getaways, complex flight plans and unique travel experiences. She is capable, reliable, organized and friendly. For our cycling tour in Provence, Shari took care of all the details: transfers, extra hotel night and flight connections that involved my husband and I joining up from two different origin cities. Highly recommend!”
