With tours running from April, now is the perfect time to plan your 2021 English holiday and adventure. Join us on for a weekend break to cycle, SUP, and kayak the Thames, or take an adventure holiday surfing, coasteering and wild swimming on Cornwall’s dramatic coast. Action packed days in the wilds glide into relaxed evenings around the firepit, sharing stories, with BBQs and our “free beer and wine” fridge to keep the tales flowing.
Our tours are for the active – whether you are looking for self guided cycling tours, a UK walking holiday or a multi-activity extravaganza, Active England will take the hassle out getting outdoors. You’ll have plenty of time to sit back relax and enjoy the ride, finishing our days in some of the best pubs known to man chatting in beer gardens and watching the sunset over another glorious day.
All our trips start a direct train ride from central London, accessible from across the country, so you can see the best parts of the Lake District, Cornwall and the Cotswolds without a car.
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.
