What To Look For when planning an adventure holiday
If you've been put in charge of adventure planning for your group, there are a few simple questions to ask to get you going:
How big is your group?
Many outdoor activity providers will have a limit on the number of people they can accommodate on their trips — or they may need to find additional instructors if you have a large group. Having a clear view on your group size will make the planning a lot easier — especially if you're trying to book accommodation too.
What types of activities do you want to do?
Depending on the age, fitness, and general adventurousness of your group, you may want to identify the activities you want to book ahead of time. If you're heading for the coast or the lakes, watersports will likely be top of your list — or if you're heading for the mountains there are loads of great options like hiking, mountain biking, and even gorge walking. Or, if you want to stay closer to home, activities like bushcraft and archery are great options and some providers may even come to your accommodation.
Where will you stay?
After a hard day out on the trails, water or hills you're going to need somewhere to kick back and relax. Look for accommodation that has a large communal area so you can all get around the table and enjoy a good feed. And if you've been out getting muddy looking for somewhere with a good boot room and plenty of showers is always a sensible idea.
