Holiday Type / Action Packed

Relaxation is redefined as the quality of recreational experiences offered at many luxury resorts now rivals the opulence of their furnishings. From teeing off on championship greens in Andalucía to enjoying bespoke scuba diving excursions together with resident marine biologists in the Maldives, physical rejuvenation is now as actively sought as restful indulgence. Travellers can opt to be tested to their physical limits with exhilarating guided ski sessions down Alpine couloirs or challenging bike rides under the tutelage of former champions. Seek to combine natural discoveries with physical exercise on guided hikes to remote turtle reserves in Cyprus and snorkelling excursions to discover parrot fish and giant clams in the Whitsundays.
