For those who want to get away but have limited time, an activity break is the solution. We have a wide range of trips of 2 to 6 days' duration, taking in everything from high-adrenaline activities like whitewater rafting, canyoning and snowboarding to short wildlife safaris, weekend caving trips and rather more sedate rambles through the English countryside and cycling tours. In short, there's an activity break available for just about every outdoor activity you can think of…
A large number of breaks are UK- and Western-Europe-based, but we also list numerous short itineraries around the globe: just to be clear, an activity break such as a 3-day safari in Kenya or a 4-day rafting trip in Zambia is, of course, based on the assumption is that you are already in that country.
There's a great selection of trips to choose from - to find the perfect one for you, have a look through our listings.
