How to Plan an Active Vacation

Vacations made easy with Active England Tours 

Holiday planning can be a logistical nightmare, especially planning an active vacation with an element of sport. From sourcing the right equipment and finding quality hotels, to choosing good cycling or walking routes, our bespoke Active England Tours make planning easy!

Pick your activity: cycling and walking are our main sports, but we offer multi-sport packages too! Ever been tempted to try stand-up paddle boarding or go punting through Oxford in the sun?

Join a tour, invite friends, or make it a family vacation.

Our tours are for all ages and abilities. They are bespoke tours and with our professional and local guides leading each group, they will make sure that you travel at your own pace, be that fast or slow, many miles or just a few. We will always have a support vehicle close by so that if you are tired or want only half a day walking or in the saddle we can drive you to the key points of interest

Choose where to go. We have a range of tours that cover the Cotswolds and beyond.

Pick which destinations you would like to visit, from Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, Downton Abbey, Windsor, Cornwall and many more.

One of the best things about being active is working up an appetite, so of course along the way we can stop off for some cream teas, English pastries or real ales at the end of the day before we take you to your hotels where you can freshen up and sample some of England’s best cuisine.

Pick your dates and duration: Pick any dates in Spring, Summer and Autumn to see the stunning English countryside at its best. We run tours that last 2.5 days all the way up to 8 day tours for the full package.

Book your flights and we’ll do the rest – no need to worry about specialist equipment.

We provide walking poles, bikes, helmets, bike equipment, water bottles and everything you will need to come cycling with us! If you do have pedals you want to use, bring them and we’ll fit them to your bike.

Once you’re with us we’ll take care of you, all your hotels will be booked, your luggage transferred and your days guided by our professional local guides!

Time to enjoy your holiday, relax and watch the landscapes float by.
