Activity holidays in spring

Activity holidays

Spring means it’s high time to throw off the winter woollies, strap on the walking boots and set out on an intrepid adventure in England’s great outdoors. Throw yourself into an entirely new class of outdoor activity husky trekking across Yorkshire’s rolling hills and dales (no snow necessary!). Make like Bradley Wiggins to England’s first indoor Olympic cycling track in Manchester or lose yourself amongst 2,000 hectares of greenery at Hamsterley Forest near Durham. For a slightly more laid-back pace, embark on a boating holiday to the Norfolk broads with scope to sail, cycle or swim to your heart’s content.
