Lazing by the beach is not for everyone, and for those looking for some stimulation or exhilaration on their holiday there is a vast variety of action packed holidays on offer for you to take part in. Here is our hand-picked selection of some of the very best activity and adventure holidays that you should add onto your holiday list.
For a wildlife adventure, head to Bako National Park whilst on your Borneo holidays. This small peninsula, 1 ½ hours from Kuching by car and longboat, is home to seven distinct rainforest ecosystems, giving it a remarkable diversity of animal and plant life. The most famous residents here are Bako’s bizarre proboscis monkeys, and it is also home to silvered langurs (leaf monkeys), long-tailed macaque monkeys, wild boar and countless other bird and plant species. For those looking for a challenging action packed experience in Borneo, then climbing Mount Kinabula is for you. Not for the faint-hearted, take an adventurous hike to the peak where you will be rewarded with bird’s eye views over the rainforest.
Visit India, where you can experience all manner of activities. Spend your time here on a painting tour or walking in the Himalayas. Hiking in India allows you to see sights such as The ‘Garden State’ of Sikkim, small but utterly beautiful; the fabled town of Darjeeling in the heart of the tea-growing country, tranquil Buddhist monasteries and undisturbed tribal settlements on this journey through the north, with the majestic and mighty Himalayan mountain range as your backdrop.
If heart racing adventure is on the agenda then the USA offers the opportunity for ranch holidays and exhilarating white water rafting. America’s cattle country forms a diverse landscape and the adventurous holiday-maker will discover dude ranches, horseback rides, cowboys, rodeos, rock climbing, river rafting and canoeing.
