The Big Ideas for The Year Ahead, Plus The New Tours to Get You Involved
Extreme TripsCoast-to-coast UK walk
Those with holiday goals beyond three-course lunches and daily naps will find themselves spoilt for choice. Why lose days in the bars of Kreuzberg, when you could instead cycle the length of the Berlin Wall. Those more inclined to two feet than two wheels should sign up for Sherpa Expeditions’ guided coast-to-coast UK walk.
Extreme ‘OTBT’Sayan Mountains – Siberia, Russia
Taking ‘Off The Beaten Track’ to the next level, those who take Regent’s group tour across the Sayan Mountains in southern Siberia will stay in yurts, take a Russian ‘banya’ (steam bath) and witness traditional throat singin. Equally intrepid is the World Expeditions’ trek along Papua New Guinea’s Kokoda Track, visiting only passable on foot.
Non-lycra Cycling HolidaysBiking at sunset
Bike trips aren’t just for MAMILs (middle-aged men in lycra). Try Grasshopper’s Chiang Mai Food Adventure by Bike or Explore’s easy-graded route around Finland’s Turku Archipelago.
