Active Holidays

Our active holidays feature special interest outdoor pursuits such as cycling and walking holidays as well as active adventure holidays that incorporate a host of activities such as whale watching, snowmobiling, jet boating and sailing into a touring itinerary. We also offer experience led activity holidays like dog sledging in Lapland or Greenland.

In many respects New Zealand is an ideal destination for a cycling holiday - its uncluttered roads and great hospitality are complemented by mile upon mile of superb scenery. Our New Zealand cycling holidays range from 5-9 nights or can be combined to make a longer holiday. The trips are very flexible because you can choose how far you cycle each day along back country roads and quiet trails. For this reason also, the trips are suitable for cyclists of varying experience and ability.

Iceland and New Zealand in particular with their varied landscapes and natural wonders offer wonderful walking trails of a few minutes to several hours and these are perfect to incorporate into a fly drive holiday. However, if you are looking for extended walking options off the beaten track and multi-day hiking trails amidst some of the finest scenery in the world then our walking and hiking holidays are for you. You can choose from 3-5 days hiking trails in the company of a knowledgeable guide to extended multi-centre trekking holidays.

In Australia you can create your own active adventure on a tailor made holiday incorporating any number of activities such as hiking, cycling and diving. We can also offer small group active touring combining sightseeing and culture with action adventure.

Travelling by dog sled leaves you in no doubt of the part of the world you’re in. This exhilarating method of transport is an excellent way to experience the pristine, snow-covered landscapes of Lapland and Greenland. Our Lapland husky sledging holiday gives you the opportunity to drive your own team across the frozen wilderness, while on the remote east coast of Greenland where the terrain is more rugged you can sit back and relax as the driver guides his team across the snow.

You do not have to be super fit to enjoy these holiday, but a reasonable level of fitness will make for a more enjoyable holiday.
