Active holidays are becoming increasingly popular with everyone from the adrenalin-rushing cycling crowd to the meditative yogis of the world looking to challenge themselves in a new and exciting environment. If you’re craving a bit of adventure or prefer taking the scenic route and exploring a new country on your own two feet, check out Quench’s top five awe-inspiring active trip ideas for your next group getaway.
1 Hike Morocco’s Atlas Mountains.
A diverse terrain that stretches 2400 km across the top of Africa, the Atlas Mountains are a hiking group’s dream. With charming villages along the way that offer local, authentic food and accommodations, the Atlas Mountains provide the perfect mix of an active holiday with vibrant cultural experiences. Relax at the end of your travels as Quench sets your group up in Morocco’s most luxurious riads, a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior courtyard. Quench can also arrange a starlit dinner in the desert, an experience you will cherish for a lifetime.
2 Run through the French countryside.
Grab your running group, tie your laces extra tight and set off on a scenic trip through the back roads of France’s beautiful countryside. The days will whizz by as you and your running mates take in the colourful landscapes of burgundy-hued vineyards and aromatic lavender fields. For a tailor-made trip that is chockfull with #QuenchMoments, let Quench fill in the stops with wine tastings at local vineyards, lunch at quaint family-restaurants and comfortable stays in French chateaus.
3 Channel your inner yogi in India.
What better way to reward your studio’s yoga teachers than with a custom trip to the country where it all began? Whether your group is looking to learn from a world-renowned master at a five-star retreat or take on a stricter practice at basic dwellings that require a vow of silence, Quench takes care of all the details so all you need to do is focus on perfecting your downward dog.
4 Cycle the Scottish Highlands.
There are few places more rugged and dramatically beautiful than the Scottish Highlands - so why not explore the region’s mountainous terrain on two wheels? With a diverse landscape that caters to both amateur and advanced cycling groups alike, travellers can enjoy quiet countryside rides or take on the challenging cliff-top paths. Quench can set you up with Scotland’s most qualified guides, who will steer you along on the best trails and make sure each day ends with a little tipple of the local whiskey.
5 Scuba dive in the Galapagos Islands.
For underwater adventurers looking to get closer to colourful marine life, there really is nowhere on earth like the Galapagos Islands. Government-protected and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Galapagos is home to sea turtles, sharks, penguins, sea lions and more. Ecuador is the perfect destination for diving buddies, scuba clubs, and environmental companies looking to reward their top employees!
