If you’ve been working all year and you need a break, but you don’t want the stress of organising a trip there are plenty of options.
Modern lifestyles mean we often work hard but have very little time for ourselves. But, if you’re not keen on package tours and you want to experience something truly memorable, a break with a difference, check out these tips for the best trips.
You might have heard of adventure tours and thought, meh, not for me. Well… Adventure tourism is growing sector of the holiday market, precisely because people don’t have time to sort their own trips.
Want to see Machu Picchu in your two weeks off? Want to sail a boat around the Mediterranean? Fancy hiking up to Everest base camp? The joy of adventure tours is that they organise trips that are usually logistical headaches for other people to put together.
One of the best is G Adventures, who are well known and provide an excellent choice for the adventurer. No matter if your game is relaxing on the beach, partying somewhere cool or cultural exploration, they have something for everyone.
You’ll meet great people and come back with some awesome memories, so if you’re looking for a break with a difference take a look at G Adventures.
If you’re looking for something a bit more out there, like skydiving, driving sports cars or flying a plane, check out Adrenaline.
If your idea of a great holiday is sliding downhill really fast then you probably love skiing or snowboarding. Another great way to unwind and let the stresses of everyday life leave you, a good skiing holiday is the cure for many ills. Maybe it’s the views, maybe it’s the fresh air. Or maybe its the apres ski?
Many businesses have quiet time in the winter months so grabbing a ski holiday is one of the best ways to make the most of switch off time.
There are of course lots of excellent providers of ski holidays, but here at GP, our faves are Inghams, Catered Ski Chalets and Crystal Ski. All of whom offer great deals on fully inclusive ski packages.
Crystal Ski offer deals from the Alps to the Americas. So if you’re keen to check out Banff, take a look. Inghams too offer deals on both sides of the Atlantic so have a good look.
Keep It Simple
If you’ve been sat in airport departure lounges all year then you’re probably not keen to go through a few more on your precious weeks off.
Staycations are all the rage, so check out a house, chateau or spa break closer to home.

If you’re looking for a nice UK based holiday, Sykes Cottages have some idyllic options across the islands. Get away from the rat race and find somewhere where you can relax with a pint after a bracing coastal walk…
