A New Approach to Travel in 2018

Eleanor Collier

Travel is one of the most enriching experiences there is, from the much needed physical rest, to the enjoyment we get by exploring a new destination and immersing ourselves in local culture.

We often don’t have time to pursue our passions from day-to-day so why not consider building in your favourite pastime with your next holiday or trying a completely new activity on a tailored break that’s just right for you.

Activity holidays are quickly emerging as a new way to travel, especially for those looking for a more authentic and unique experience. From yoga holidays to digital photography and from walking holidays to off-the-beaten track exploration, there’s something for everyone!

Whether you want to go it alone, travel with other couples or as a group of friends, here are four great ways to get active and take a completely new approach to your travel plans for 2018:

2. Explore the World by Foot - Walking Holidays

What better way to explore a new destination than by foot, getting the chance to interact with locals along the way? Walking is always enhanced by an experienced guide who is familiar with the trails, so why not consider a guided walking tour with TDactive Holidays? From beginners to experienced walkers, TDactive Walking Holidays are split to accommodate different fitness levels. This is a very special way to experience the stunning Camino in Spain to the picturesque Croatian national parks and the wonders of Austria, Hungary or even Romania. So if you fancy trying something new this year, consider lacing up your walking boots and planning an active adventure to some of Europe’s most stunning locations!

3. Authentic Travel to Exotic Destinations - Explore Holidays

All too often when we travel, we focus on ticking off the main tourist highlights of a destination and ignore the original local experiences on offer! TDactive Explore holidays are exciting, authentic travel experiences with a small group of people to unique faraway destinations. With exotic locations such as Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as Cuba and even Jordan, you’ll find a range of locations to choose from. The difference is that they are hand-crafted and will take you off the beaten track with expert local guides so that you can get under the skin of each destination and have authentic experiences from cooking classes, to cycling tours and tuk-tuk adventures. The Explore range offers far more than just a holiday, it’s an opportunity to explore a new culture, get to know the local customs and get under the skin of a new destination, creating authentic memories to last a lifetime!
