Get stuck into an active weekend break or an adventure holiday with like-minded people, filled with wild swimming, cycling, yoga, walking, and of course water sports – canoeing, paddle boarding and kayaking. Make the most of days outdoors by punting in Oxford, exploring rolling hills and grabbing a board to paddle at Cotswold Water Park, before relaxing around the fire pit, with home cooked food, a beer in hand, and great people around you! Find the source of the Thames, and rediscover nature away from the crowds in the wonderful English countryside. It’s hard to believe we’re on holiday so near London!
“At your own pace” is our motto, so you can choose can choose to push yourself on a 50 mile cycle, or take in the view over a leisurely 20 miles. Add in an early morning wild swim, a Cotswolds walk and SUP or canoe to the pub in the early evening you’ll have a full, active day! Don’t feel obliged to do all of these activities, if you fancy an afternoon off to stroll along the canals or read your book in the sun – that fits in well with our Cotswolds itinerary too.
Looking for a little more challenge? You can try your hand at surfing and coasteering in Cornwall, or tackle a gorge scramble and a few fells on a Lake District adventure! We can also create bespoke adventure holidays for families and groups.
