It could be a far-flung destination, such as Papua New Guinea or the Amazon, or a travelling style you’ve never encountered before: taking the Ghan train through the Australian Outback, for example, or cycling in Vietnam’s lush countryside.
Perhaps you’ve reached a landmark birthday, have a special anniversary, or fancy doing something just for you – what better excuse to book a holiday of a lifetime?
Cruise to Borneo’s beautiful islands, take a kayaking tour of Montenegro’s great lakes, or witness Canada’s native polar bears as they frolic in their snow-bound habitat. The only limit is your imagination.

When it comes to adventure holidays, it’s almost always worth having an expert guide on hand who will not only be able to gauge your ability, but will also know the area inside-out to enable you to get the very best out of your trip.
Seasonality is also key. Trekking the Inca Trail is a popular adventure tour, however it’s best avoided during Peru’s rainy season between December and April. May and June, or September to November, are the best times to conquer it.
Many adventure holiday itineraries require special permits to access the trails, and this is where joining an organised tour group comes into its own as permits can be difficult to secure and often sell out months in advance.
