Join our multi activity holidays and meet like-minded active people who embrace their holidays and want to get stuck into some great activities. You’ll return with a glow having made the most of your week, full of morning swims, days outdoors, evenings by the firepit with homecooked food and a great group around you!
Full, active days without the rush. From an early morning swim, a morning walk or cycle through the Cotswolds, afternoon SUP or canoe to the pub in the early evening you’ll have a full, active day! Led by our outstanding team of guides who know every route; café stop and canal; the best way to bike out of Bath or the best places to canoe in Oxford.
We’ll get you from platform to pint in 75 minutes, out of London on a Monday and ready to begin your week. We provide all the equipment you will need; just bring yourself, some active wear and some swim kit, and you’ll be ready to go!
Don’t feel obliged to do all of these activities, if you fancy an afternoon off to stroll along the canal or read your book in the sun – that fits in well with our itinerary too.
If you would like to cycle more miles each day we would be happy to show you some faster ‘racing snake’ routes! Our guides can add more mileage and steeper inclines for those wishing to stretch their legs on this adventure!
Wave goodbye to London (or wherever you’re catching the train from) on a Monday as we get you from Platform to Pub lunch in 75 minutes or less! Many will take the train out of London to Bath Spa where you’ll meet your guides and group and get to know them over lunch in this spa city. We head out for an afternoon bike ride along the Kennet and Avon canal and towards the pretty village of Lacock. With 20, 40 and 50 mile options. We take the short transfer to our basecamp for the evening and stroll over to the Bakers Arms for dinner in one of the best pubs known to mankind! Enjoy your evening getting to know our group and stroll after dinner to our basecamp and your shepherd hut style accommodation.
Begin your Tuesday with a walk in the fresh air to find the elusive source of the River Thames! We’ll have your bikes set up and ready to hop on to, cycling to lunch in the village of Lechlade, known for its riverside pubs so you can watch the world float by as you eat. We’ll hop onto our canoes and kayaks and travel along the river for a relaxed afternoon paddle back towards our basecamp. Firepit Tuesday is our favourite evening on this trip, where you can put your feet up, enjoy a cold beer from the free-beer fridge, and share campfire stories over a homecooked BBQ dinner.
Early risers can join us for a morning swim – and some SUP yoga to get the day started, back in the lake before breakfast. This morning’s bike ride takes us along the Thames valley with a full ride of 37 miles, and plenty of pick up options for those choosing a shorter cycle. After lunch in a quirky pottery barn we SUP down the Thames to your accommodation in a wonderful glamping site on the banks of the Thames where we have dinner in a wonderful local pub.
After breakfast we SUP or Kayak into Oxford down the Thames and after a tour around the wonderful University city, test our punting technique (an old-fashioned English boat, with a long pole to propel yourself) or sit back and relax as you are guided downstream towards our picnic lunch in Oxford’s best riverside pub and beer garden. Watch the boats float by as you eat, before taking a leisurely paddle back into Oxford in the afternoon. We drop off everyone and their luggage to Oxford station, with frequent 50-minute direct departures to London.
