Outdoor activity vacations

If you like to shift up gears, not down, on vacation, our tailor-made activity trips take you on outdoor pursuits to the backdrop of the world’s most beautiful natural scenery.

Discover the wide, open spaces of places such as Borneo’s rainforests, India’s national parks and Australia’s Outback on a walking, trekking or cycling trip. We can also build outdoor activities into part of your wider activity — a hot-air balloon ride over canyons in South Africa, whitewater rafting at the Nile’s source in Uganda or beach hopping in French Polynesia. We've experienced the outdoor activities we offer, and will match the adventure you're after to the right destination for you.
