We’re actively working to identify ways we can reduce our carbon footprint year on year, sharing our methodology on an open basis to help others start their own net-zero journeys while keeping us accountable to ours.

Over time, we believe that we can reduce our carbon emitted per customer and per employee to net zero.

Our Destinations

Whether it’s charming Cotswold villages or the untamed fells of the Lake District, at Active England we’ll take your clients wherever their adventure’s calling. 

But we’ll also transport them to another kind of place. Where we take the tour off route because we’ve spotted something right there, right then, in the moment. Where we know the village pub will be full of Morris Dancers, or Cheese-Rollers, or a folk band. Where the fire’s warm, the soundtrack is chatter and laughter, and the memories will last a lifetime.

Handpicked Hotels

We know how accommodation choice is central to every trip. We’ll help you find hotels that exceed your client’s requirements – accommodation options that provide only the very best experience, service and local cuisine. Below is a small selection of our vast offering.
