Looking For Your Next Staycation?

For anyone looking to add some adrenaline to their next break, our more adventurous outings may be just what you’re looking for. With itineraries encompassing everything from canyoning, mountain hiking, Whitewater rafting and kayaking, you can be sure of leaving feeling reinvigorated.
Self-drive Road Trips
If you’re looking to fulfil your sense of adventure, without flying to the other side of the world, a self-guided road trip could be ideal. With accommodation pre-arranged ahead of your trip and the option for car hire to also be arranged, all you’ll need to do is turn up and enjoy the adventure.
Our Travel Counsellors have a selection of itineraries for you to choose from, but each can be adapted to suit. Take the North Coast 500 road trip for example, which can be amended to feature trips out to the Scottish islands.
Small-group Guided Tours
For some expert insights on your next trip, our selection of small group tour options come with the service of a tour leader to take you off-the-beaten track to spots only frequented by locals. A fond favourite is the Corners of Cornwall Itinerary which makes a round trip from London, taking in the highlights of both the southern and northern coasts of the Cornish peninsula.
