Now is the perfect time to plan your English adventure with Active England. Join us and cycle, walk, or wild swim down byways, old railway lines, estuaries, rivers and along dramatic coastal cliffs and moors. Action packed days outdoors glide into relaxed evenings, with like-minded people over a drink at a local pub, sharing stories from the day….
Our tours are for the active – whether you are looking for a guided Cycling, Swimming, or Walking holiday – and also for those looking for a more gentle adventure, with a range of new wellness tours just launched. You’ll have plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey, finishing our days at some of the most beautiful sunset spots and at our favourite pubs!
Our tours run weekly throughout the season and range in length from three days through to six days and are run by our qualified and charismatic guides – the heartbeat of our business. Tours are in all areas of the country with a focus on the Lake District and Northumberland, Devon and Cornwall and the Cotswolds and with optional dawn and evening walks, evening picnics and early morning swims we’re confident we’ll give you an experience to remember.
Travel with a friends, treat your family, join our small group adventures, or explore on your own with our self-guided walking and cycling tours – the choice is yours! Go private and create your own perfect itinerary, picking activities which are most appeal to you and your group.
With routes curated over years of experience, our tours take the most picturesque way down the road less travelled, with a story and destination to each journey, be that a SUP down the Fowey River to the Fisherman’s Inn, seeking the source of the Thames, or cycling the Camel Trail to Padstow and beyond for great surf and coasteering.
Rediscover the English countryside and coast, escape the cities and reconnect with each other and nature. Cycle down winding, quiet lanes, swim in lakes, kayak the coast, SUP down canals all in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
We stay in glamping sites overlooking meadows, off grid eco huts with views of the sea or beautiful Cotswold inns, with attention to detail and an eye for the unusual. Our guides are the heartbeat of our tours and will take care of your every need, ensuring our groups knit together allowing you to enjoy your trip with us at your own pace and in your own time.
