If you find yourself getting restless during a day sunbathing on the beach, we hear you. To aid your wanderlust, here are 5 adventures from our active adventure collection that have peaked our collective curiosity here at HQ.

From learning to freedive, to scrambling through a remote wadi in the Omanian desert, these are the trips for those who thrive on doing things their mates haven’t even thought of.

Like all adventures in our active range, you’ll want to be fit and healthy, but won’t need any special experience or training. An open mind and a head for adventure is all you need. Oh, and your passport.

1) Hike, Canyon, Kayak and Explore Oman

This ancient landscape was seemingly built with the sole purpose of offering up a rich, action-packed adventure opportunity. Head from the souks of Muscat to the jagged mountains and summit the highest point in the country. Then slither your way down deep canyons, jumping off waterfalls into the refreshing turquoise pools below. Sleep in a desert camp surrounded by golden sand dunes, and later, incredible stars. Finish up by kayaking the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea, and try to work out why more of your friends have not already been here.

2) Hike the Republic of Georgia

Go back in time on a trek through Georgia’s Svaneti region, with some of the highest and least visited mountains in Europe. Passing through medieval villages with their iconic Svan towers and culture-rich churches, you’ll be wondering why it’s taken you until now to get out here.

Come back with a pocketful of photos and a great story or two.
