UK Adventure Holidays

Stretching from the Shetland Isles in the north to the Isles of Scilly in the south, the UK’s 242,495km2 of land is shaped by rugged, rocky coastline and an interior strewn with mountains and lakes.

Whether it’s Scotland’s lochs, glens and ancient woodlands; England’s remote moorland; Northern Ireland’s heritage coastline or the Welsh mountain ranges - the UK’s national parks are all within easy reach for a weekend or a week-long adventure. Outdoor adventure awaits!

Come summer and Scotland’s ‘right to roam’ begs for wild camping on a beach and wild swimming in ice-cool lochs. Head south to surf the Cornish swell, kayak the length of the Lake District’s 16 serene lakes or hike up Snowdon in time to catch the sunrise. During wintertime, ski around Glen Coe and the Cairngorms, horse ride along the New Forest’s protected heathlands or dangle above the North Atlantic Ocean with cliff camping on Shetland.

Adventure holidays in UK hills, mountains, beaches and waters can be jam-packed weekends or longer expeditions. With a wide range of outdoor activities to choose from, you can try to cram in as many adventures as you can, or focus on just one self-powered continuous journey. Enjoy the natural beauty of paddling across Scotland or get your first taste of rock climbing on an Intro to Mountaineering course. Take the Welsh 15 Peak Challenge for a long weekend in the great outdoors, climbing the highest mountains in Snowdonia.

There’s a whole host of adventure holidays in the UK waiting to be discovered, and with our hand-picked range of experiences, you’re just a moment away from yours.
