If you’ve clicked on this post, it’s probably because you’re thinking of booking an activity holiday but are not sure where to start. With so much to choose from these days it can be a daunting prospect, so we have put together some suggestions for some of our favourite adventure holidays; whether you are travelling solo, with your family or as part of a group we have something to suit your needs.
Best activity holidays for solo travellers
Do you want to join in with a group of like-minded individuals or go it alone and do your own thing?
- An organised group itinerary, but still with some free time for yourself, this can be a good solution for solo travellers, take a look at this multi-sport holiday around the Elafiti islands close to Dubrovnik. Go sea kayaking, cycling and hiking around Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep islands with a small group of between 4 and 16 people. Other travellers range from couples and families, to fellow solo travellers. While there is a fixed itinerary on 4-5 of the days, you still get some time to yourself to explore or lie on the beach.
- On the other hand if time to yourself is what you need, why not try a self-guided walking holiday? The itinerary is fixed but your luggage is taken care of and you can stop off wherever you like on the route – this walking break in Istria has shorter and longer routes on most days so you can tailor it to suit you.
Best activity holidays for families
Flexibility is key for families, finding activities that everyone wants to do isn’t always easy. These breaks leave you some choice as to when and which activities you take part in, and both can be tailor-made to suit your needs.
- Short multi-activity break in the heart of Croatia – stay in the Croatian countryside and go rafting and bike riding - as featured in the Guardian's '20 of the best activity holidays in the UK and Europe'.
