Small Groups. Big Adventures

Bespoke UK Active Holidays for Small Groups

At Active England we know travelling in small groups, around a passion for the outdoors and with like-minded friends and family, both new and old, is truly special! We believe who you travel with and how you travel is as important as the destination. 

So join us on one of our scheduled trips with your family or friends, or organize your own private group tour! 

Our Expert Team

  • We’re proud of our 200+ bike fleet
  • Own our vehicles
  • Operate all our tours with the required licences and qualifications
  • Have an incredible team of highly qualified guides across England with regional leads 
  • We’re “the” experts in active travel walk ins across England
    • Walk/Cycle or Paddle into the beautiful sites of Oxford, Bath, Windsor, Buttermere and many more… 

Our mantra is “do it properly, first time and always.”

In this post-Covid world, the need to come together in person is of heightened importance and face to face contact is not a “nice to have,” it’s a necessity and gone are the days (hopefully) of zoom chats with friends and family. It’s time to make memories again, in the real world, outdoors! 

All of our adventures are organised in a bespoke manner and we are proud to work through the following steps, to make your group tour as smooth and easy to organise for you: 

  • A call to ensure we have know exactly what you want for your group
  • Clear and transparent pricing with no hidden extras
  • A dedicated Tour Leader, who will run your tour and is part of the operational team from day 1
