If lounging around on a beach for days on end isn’t your idea of fun, you might be looking for holidays that offer a little more in the way of action. Luckily, there are lots of vacations on offer now, including a host of activity breaks in Europe. Here are some of the very best.
Ride the waves on a paddle board in the UK
Another great, albeit less well-known, activity is paddle boarding and you don’t have to travel far to enjoy this pursuit. Indeed, there are plenty of coastal spots around the UK where you can get stuck into the sport. For example, you may want to book a holiday to Newquay in Cornwall. This is a paddle boarding hotspot and you’ll be able to hire all the gear you need while you’re there.
If you’re a beginner, bear in mind that you’ll need the biggest size of board and it’s worth booking some lessons to get started. However, once you’ve got to grips with the activity, it could become a lifelong hobby.
Test your skills on the course with golf trips to Spain
For golf fans, Spain has lots to offer. This sun-soaked Mediterranean country is home to a number of stunning courses, making it the ideal destination for all inclusive golf holidays. If you’re planning a trip to Spain, you may wish to consider venturing to Almeria, the Costa del Sol or the Costa de la Luz. Situated in the south of the country, these areas offer stunning scenery and fabulous weather.
Whether you’re travelling with friends, family, members of your golf club or anyone else, vacations in this part of the world could be ideal. One of the best things about all-inclusive deals is the fact that you don’t have to worry about splitting bills. Once you arrive at your chosen destination in Spain, your golf, food and drinks are already paid for.
Mountain bike in Italy
If you’ve got a head for heights and you enjoy getting around on two wheels, perhaps a mountain biking trip to Italy would be ideal. Finale Ligure in the north of the country is the perfect place to tests your skills on the slopes. There, you can travel along a selection of trails. In total, there are 150 routes on offer. Regardless of whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’ll be able to find trails that suit.
After a hard day on the saddle, you can relax and enjoy some of the sumptuous local cuisine in breathtaking surroundings.
Climb rugged terrain in Corsica
For superb rock climbing vacations, Corscia is hard to beat. This picturesque French island in the Mediterranean is covered in rugged, mountainous terrain and it boasts a variety of multi-pitch routes. The Corscian landscape is particularly well-suited to confident beginners who are keen to build on their skills.
Of course, these are just some of the fantastic activity breaks on offer across Europe. There are plenty more on offer too and you can find all the inspiration you need online.
