Horse riding in Arizona
Horseback riding vacations are a great way to absorb the scenery in rural surroundings, covering a wide area. Arizona provides fantastic riding opportunities.

Accommodation is usually in tents – a camping adventure in itself!

Take in the breathtaking surroundings of the Swiss Alps as you whizz through the snow, then marvel at the views below as you cable car back to your take off destination. Skiing and snowboarding tuition is available for all levels and ages so an ideal choice for families. Swiss chalet accommodation is often rented with a chalet host to take care of the chores and cooking.

Cycling in Northern Cyprus

Services are available to transfer your luggage to and from your accommodation while you cycle, meaning you can enhance your vacation experience by staying somewhere different every night.
If you’re not sure which activity to choose or would just prefer variety, then a multi-activity vacation might be just what you are looking for:
Niagara Falls in Canada
Set in a national park, Niagara Falls is the perfect choice for adventure holidays.
