Luxury Adventure

Many people look no further than a classic ‘fly and flop’ to the beach for their holiday. You are not that person.

If you've ended up on this page we suspect you're more of the action-packed, outdoorsy school of thought. If relaxing around the pool strikes fear in your heart and sitting still sounds like, well, a waste of time quite frankly, then let us introduce you to (drum roll please) the luxury adventure holiday.

Whether you're scaling the heights of Kilimanjaro or discovering new depths on a diving holiday, we can create a completely bespoke trip to satisfy even the most voracious adrenaline junkie.

Here's what we have in store luxury adventure holiday seekers:

As with all our luxury adventure and outdoor holidays, a member of the Original Travel team will have done the activity in question, so can talk you through exactly what it might involve and consequently whether it is something that might appeal.

Climbing Cotopaxi

Climbing Cotopaxi

Get to the top as the sun rises, and you can see the peaks of the surrounding volcanoes glisten red and yellow and miles of glacier spread below with the twinkling lights of Quito visible in the distance. Well worth the climb.

Sea Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast

Sea Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast

The Elaphiti Islands, forming part of the Dalmatian Coast, run in a chain parallel to the mainland and form the perfect aquatic playground for exploration by sea kayak.

Big Sur Whale Watching

Via Ferrata, Dolomites: Walking Holidays in Italy

Via Ferrata, Dolomites: Walking Holidays in Italy

Not recommended for anyone with vertigo, the Via Ferrata in the Dolomites, consisting of iron wrung ladders, footpaths and rope bridges, are an exhilarating series of routes that allow non-mountaineers to experience the higher peaks and most dramatic scenery of this most beautiful of mountain ranges.

Iceland Adventure

Iceland Adventure

Iceland is quite unlike anywhere else. Isolated in the far North Atlantic, the country feels incredibly remote, yet is barely three hours flying time from London.

Glacier Ice Trekking

Glacier Ice Trekking

Southern Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park stretches parallel to the Andes for over 120 miles, its most famous members being the Perito Moreno, Upsala and Onelli.

Trekking Holidays: The Kilimanjaro Climb Adventure

Rising from the plains of northern Tanzania close to the Kenyan border, Mt Kilimanjaro dominates the surrounding landscape and on a clear day can be seen from almost one hundred miles away.

Cresta Run

Cresta Run

St Moritz is famous for the thrilling Cresta Run. Descending the ¾ mile long run at speeds in excess of 60 mph (the best riders approach 80 mph), your face just inches above the surface of the ice, is the ultimate in adrenaline fixes.

4x4 Adventure

4x4 Adventure

A tailor-made guided desert safaris is the ideal way to take in the very best scenery that Oman has to offer, and Original Travel can personalise an itinerary to suit your exact requirements.

Engadin Ski Marathon

Engadin Ski Marathon

The Engadin Ski Marathon has become a major international sporting event, attracting participants from more than 35 nations every year. While the idea of 26 miles of cross country skiing might not appeal to all, one of the Original Travel gang did it a few years ago and he has been virtually the first to apply every year since. Once you get over the fact that it’s strange to be in the mountains and not be going downhill it’s the most wonderful sport, a great challenge and a brilliant event in stunning surrounds.

The Haute Route

The Haute Route

The most rewarding way to explore the Mont-Blanc massif is by ski-mountaineering, an exhilarating combination of ascent right into the heart of the Alps, followed by a liberating descent in totally untouched powder.

Sea Kayaking & Whale Watching at La Paz

Sea Kayaking & Whale Watching at La Paz

Paddle your way around the vivid waters of the Baja Peninsula, camping on pristine beaches by night and spotting wildlife by day.
