Adventure Short Breaks

Getting even a short dose of activity and adrenaline is a great way to recharge. 

Whether you want to delve into the wilderness of Iceland or Lapland, countries that pack a punch with outdoor activities such as superjeep journeys, husky safaris, trips by snowmobile and trekking on volcanoes and glaciers available, or catch the Northern Lights from a remote, luxury lodge, we can help.

And just because you only have a short amount of time doesn’t mean you have to compromise on location. Talk to our team of specialists and they can arrange a week exploring Ecuador and the Galapagos or whisk you away for a safari in Kenya, Tanzania or Zimbabwe, trips packed with sights, activities and experiences that mean that you’ll come away thinking you’ve been on holiday for far longer than your (big) short break suggests.
