Adventure holidays

Step off the beaten track and into an epic adventure

If you’re hankering after a life less ordinary, try our adventure holidays for size. These tailor made trips combine the most incredible climbs, treks and tours on the planet with heart-in-mouth expeditions into the great wildernesses of the world.

Cruise the waters of the Amazon River, for example, and you’ll glide beneath a colourful canvas of tropical greenery filled with chattering monkeys and prowling wildcats, then step off the boat and hike deep into the rainforest for a closer look. Or, flip the scenery altogether with an adventure holiday to Alaska, where you’ll kayak past supersized floating glaciers and hike through icefields and snow-capped mountain peaks.

The possibilities are endless, from dune bashing and desert camping in Oman, to horseback riding through America’s top National Parks. Plus, you can choose an adventure holiday that gives you a two-in-one break, like our Vancouver and Yukon multi centre. Discover the bright lights of the city first, then venture into Yukon territory. This is one of the best places in the world to view the Northern Lights, so you can sit back and watch the sky turn an iridescent blue-green over this untamed Canadian wilderness.
