From the sedate to the extreme: find your active ranking with The Adventure Company
It is a common misconception that ‘adventure travel’ demands a high level of physical fitness, but The Adventure Company aims to show that adventure holidays can be as active or relaxing as customers want.
The 11-day Nile Riverboat Adventure includes a leisurely cruise along the Nile from Aswan to Luxor, with shore visits to the great temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu, the Valley of the Kings and Karnak. The trip starts and ends in Cairo so travellers will also visit the Pyramids at Giza.
Trekking the Inca Trail is not the only way to experience the magic of Machu Picchu – travellers on the Taste of Peru trip will take the train to the magnificent citadel. The itinerary also includes a scenic drive across the ‘altiplano’ where llama and alpaca can be seen wandering the high plateau; and a boat trip to the floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca.
Rwandan Encounters offers incredible chances to come face to face with wildlife including chimps and mountain gorillas in Central Africa. The dense jungles of Nyungwe and the Parc National des Volcans means the expeditions in search of the primates are on foot and hikes may take up to three hours each way.
A multi-activity holiday in Europe is a great option for travellers wanting to try some new outdoor pursuits. Turkey Activity Week is based in the coastal town of Kas – the adventure capital of the Mediterranean – and includes sea kayaking, river rafting, mountain biking and SCUBA diving on the itinerary.
