Top 5 Best Weekend Break Destinations for Activity Holidays

If sitting by a beach, relaxing with a cold drink is not your thing then get your body working hard with a weekend activity holiday. Here are our top 5 locations for activity holidays in the UK and Ireland:

1. The Lake District

There is no place better to walk than through the mountainous area of the Lake District. The walk may be challenging but the scenery and views are well worth the effort.

2. Haldon Forest Park

Haldon Forest caters for both the casual stroller and the adrenaline fuelled mountain-biker. Go Ape also provides an exciting place to take the family, featuring zip wires which give you a view over Dartmoor National Park.

3. The Highlands

Trail riding and pony trekking holidays are on offer in the picturesque Highlands of northern Scotland. The peace and tranquillity that you will experience while riding is second to none.

 4. The Tryweryn

White water rafting on the Trywern River in Wales is the ultimate adrenaline fuelled experience. With speeds up to 75mph, this adventure is not for the light-hearted.

5. Poole Harbour

Pooler Harbour is the perfect location for beginner wind surfers. On the coast of Dorset, these southern coastal waters offer relatively gentle seas which allow people to come to grips with the art of sailing.
