Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience to get active in a place that’s the furthest thing from your backyard.

Turkey Active Adventure (ETAI)
A bridge between continents and cultures, Turkey has always been a meeting place for travellers eager to exchange just about everything. That trend continues with this activity-heavy romp through southern Turkey. Swap your trusty walking stick for a bike and a kayak as you hike, pedal, paddle and ride your way through the steep canyons of the Lycian Way, past ancient ruins, around peaceful olive groves, and into small villages untouched by time in the valley's of Cappadocia. Exercise should always be this inspiring.
Highlights: Ride the valleys of Cappadocia on horseback, enjoy local hospitality in remote villages, go sea kayaking in spectacular coves, cycle from the mountains to the coast, trek the Lycian Way, hike through ruins and Turkish villages.
New Zealand is the perfect place for adrenaline and activity, and there's nowhere in the country more suited to that than the South Island. On this two-week trip, cover the ground (or water) by sea kayak, boat, bike, and on foot. Explore Abel Tasman National Park, hike the Routeburn Track, glide along the waters of Milford Sound and take two wheels through the Rail Trail in Central Otago. If you're not out of breath just from reading all that, then it's time to start packing.
Highlights: Kayak in the waters of Abel Tasman National Park, trek through the wilds of the South Island's national parks, try exhilarating adventures in Queenstown, hike along the Routeburn Track, cross the spectacular Southern Alps, cycle along the remote rail trail in Central Otago.
