There are numerous activity holidays offered in countries all over the world. Four of the most popular activity holidays in the world, in no specific order, include:
Going on Safari in South Africa
Safari holidays are available at the many game parks dotted around South Africa, and promise a great activity holiday for the whole family. Not only do you get a chance to see the famous “Big Five”, but you also have the opportunity to camp out under the stars, visit cheetah conservation centres, go snorkelling, kayaking, and mountain biking, as well as visiting crocodile farms, and seeing the day-today life in a real Zulu village.
Camping Wild West style
The southwest regions of the USA provide camping adventures reminiscent of the old wild west days, where you eat and sleep around a campfire under the velvety, starry expanse of the night sky. Camping tours are available in areas where the landscape is spectacular, in such places as Bryce Canyon, Valley of Fire, Monument Valley, and the world-famous Grand Canyon.
Experience a blend of culture and nature in Sri Lanka
This is an activity holiday that will satisfy every member of the family, no matter how diverse their interests. Visit World Heritage temples, interact with the gentle giants at elephant sanctuaries, see key attractions, stroll through tea plantations, visit the imposing Sigiriya rock fortress, and of course, spend time on the many magnificent beaches that the country has to offer.
Known as the “land of fire and ice”, Iceland offers the holidaymaker plenty in the line of activities, especially during winter when it’s at its most impressive. The boiling mud pools, geysers, and hot thermal springs are in complete contrast with the icy landscape surrounding them, and activities include invigorating hikes to stunning waterfalls, and across mighty glaciers. Visiting Reykjavik also gives you the opportunity to visit excellent museums, dine at some of the many quirky cafes, and experience the famous Northern Lights first hand.
