Adventure holidays

Get your pulse racing on a once-in-a-lifetime Hayes & Jarvis adventure holiday. The kind of holiday where you’ll be off exploring at any given moment. Think horseback tours, wildlife safaris, sailing expeditions and wilderness hikes. 

Whether you’re a thrill-seeking couple or an outdoor-loving family, our adventure holidays take you on sensational explorations all over the world. Our tailor made trips combine the most incredible climbs, treks and tours on the planet, with exhilarating expeditions into the great wildernesses of our world.

Take a walk on the wild side with epic adventure travel

Hop on board a riverboat for an incredible Amazonian adventure in one of the world’s most mythical places. Glide beneath a vibrant canvas of tropical greenery to the rustle of prowling wildcats and the chatter of monkeys overhead; step off the boat and hike deep into the rainforest for a closer look. New experiences are bountiful on an Amazon cruise, from swimming with pink dolphins to spotting caiman crocodiles and piranhas in the murky depths.

For an icier adventure holiday, why not Alaska? Here you’ll kayak past impressive floating glaciers, hike through ice fields and snow-tipped mountain peaks, and maybe even spot a grizzly. If that’s not adventure, we don’t know what is.

The possibilities for activity holidays are truly limitless; from dune bashing and mountain biking in the deserts of Oman, to riding horseback, cowboy-style, through America’s magnificent National Parks. For an action-packed travel adventure, we recommend a multi-centre holiday, where you can explore two or more different locations in one trip. On our Vancouver and Yukon multi centre holiday, you’ll spend a few nights discovering the bright lights of the city, then venture into Yukon Territory to observe the breathtaking natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights. One of the prime spots in the world to view this sight, sit back and watch the sky turn an iridescent kaleidoscope of blues and greens over this untamed Canadian wilderness.
