Five Splashing Good Adventure Holidays
There is nothing quite like the first few months of a New Year for dreaming of the summer. As the snow, sleet and rain batter the country, the majority of us can’t wait to be packing our bags and heading for an adventure on foreign soil. For some of us that comes around more often than most, but with a holiday still being very much something of a luxury, it’s important to make it something that is well worth looking forward to. At Whereabouts Holidays, we are certainly specialists in doing just that, and it’s not just walking and cycling holidays that we offer, we’ve got some unbelievable water sports adventure holidays for you to experience as well. Some of our favourites include trips to the best lakes, rivers and seas in the world, and with the theory that being around water is good for the soul, here are our top five water sports holidays that promise a splashing good time!
Austrian Multi-Activity Holiday
The Salzburg Saalach valley is the ideal place for an active holiday in Austria, with lots of variety within a small area. Experience the power of the water right up close on a canyoning tour, explore the numerous picturesque gorges and then head into the famous mountains. Enjoy hiking and rock climbing, experience the friendliness of the people and try regional specialities whilst looking out at the spectacular Alpine panorama. Sounds good, eh?
Croatia Adventure Holiday
Enjoy a four-day sailing experience on our fantastic Croatian adventure holiday with a twist. You’ll get to explore the Elaphiti shorelines and Mljet Island National Park which are both rich in history and natural variety including cliffs, caves, rocks, beaches and pine forests. You’ll get to explore them all while sailing, often at the side of friendly dolphins, on a yacht or sea kayaking, cycling, swimming, snorkelling and walking around this beautiful region. Our experienced local guides will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic Croatia adventure holiday experience possible. You will have the opportunity to dine with local families in their homes and enjoy good food and excellent wine.
Italian Multi-Activity Holiday
Enjoy a range of water sport holiday activities with the family at Italy’s largest lake, Lake Garda. This is the perfect region for activity-loving families to experience all that the lake, rivers and mountains have to offer. You will marvel at impressive views of the mountains, explore the cool river during ‘River Fun’ and cycle at a comfortable pace through marvellous scenery. It is quite simply breath-taking. Experience the wonders of nature onboard your own canoe, before you sunbath and relax on one of the fabulous beaches of Lake Garda. That’s all before you tuck into some of the best pizza, pasta and ice cream you ever tasted on holiday.
Swedish Multi-Activity Holiday
Enjoy the attractions of Sweden on this self-guided multi-activity water sport holiday, that includes steamboat trips, cycling and canoeing. Start in the vibrant city of Stockholm and then set out to explore some of Sweden’s charms including castles, palaces, villages and historical Viking sites. You’ll visit the county of Sörmland, which is noted for its countless lakes, endless forests and unmissable landscapes and open seas. Sitting to the south of Stockholm, it is perfectly suited for those who want to match the buzz of the city with the peace and tranquillity of Sweden’s countryside.
British Camping Adventure Holiday
For those who enjoy staying a little closer to home, Britain has everything you could ever want from an adventure holiday by the water. The Great Glen Canoe Trail is a classic canoe journey from coast to coast through the spectacular loch and river system of the Great Glen, including canoeing in Loch Ness. Watch out for the monster! The adventure holiday begins just outside Fort William on the easy, sheltered water of the Caledonian Canal. You will then journey through a series of amazing lochs before finishing at Inverness on the other side of Scotland. Inspired?
