top activity breaks in the UK & Ireland

Fancy something different from your usual holiday abroad? Prefer to forego the sunbathing for a week of adventure? Then look no further.

We have listed our top 3 breaks for adrenaline filled escapes, from biking across the beautiful Irish coast, to a family weekend packed with energy boosting activities and a suave, but super fun weekend inspired by the ultimate action man, James Bond.

Cycling & Yoga Escape, N.W.Ireland

Take a bike tour along tranquil, winding roads overlooking the beautiful coastal landscapes of the North West of Ireland. Steeped in culture and mythical stories and legends, you will start in a little surfing village in Strandhill, meandering through the Coolera Peninsula, passing the Ox Mountains and the Two Valleys until you reach the stunning Rossnowlagh beach in Donegal.

You will begin every day with a peaceful yoga session to strengthen your core and feed your soul. It will be the perfect way to relax and de-stress before continuing your cycling adventure.

James Bond weekend, South Wales

The perfect weekend for adrenaline junkies, who relish a challenge and love to live life on the edge. If the thought of throwing yourself off a waterfall excites rather than terrifies, then canyoning will be right up your street.

Act like a stuntman for the day before heading to a cocktail making class in the evening followed by a trip to a casino. Live out the film fantasy and spend your second day clay pigeon shooting, as Mr Bond was so frequently seen doing with his enemies. You can even end the weekend watching the great cinema enigma in his first ever outing, Dr No.

PGL Multi Activity Short Break, locations across Scotland, England and Wales

Breathing life and vitality into the average family holiday, this short break is ideal for families who want adventure and excitement. Opt for a day filled with energy boosting tasks and activities, such as abseiling, archery, quad biking, giant swing, trapeze and more. The fun continues on into the night with family quiz nights, karoake evenings and discos.

Any outdoors pursuit requires the right kit, so make sure that unfavourable weather doesn’t spoil your adventure. Pack up compact waterproof jackets and overtrousers for the entire family and cover up should the weather take a turn for the worse.
