Try something new on your holiday
If you’ve always wanted to try out a new sport or get better at one that you already practise, there’s no better time than on holiday to give it a go. Throw yourself out of your comfort zone and pick up a new skill in paradise; it’s sure to be a trip you’ll never forget.
Try your hand at winter sports
Ever been skiing or snowboarding? It’s never too late to learn! Winter is the perfect time to strap on your snow boots and take to the powdery slopes. Try France’s Chamonix or the delights of Aspen in Colorado.
If you’re feeling a little nervous, there are plenty of schools out there to teach you the tricks of the trade. Take a few lessons at the likes of Ski World or Neilson and you’ll be a snow pro in no time!
Fancy taking like a duck to water on your next holiday? There’s no end of watersports out there to try! If you’ve always liked the idea of surfing, why not head to a surf school in Portugal or Costa Rica to learn alongside the pros?
If surfing’s not your thing, there’s windsurfing in the Canary Islands, kitesurfing in Morocco or scuba diving in Egypt’s Red Sea to try. For those who’d rather keep two dry feet, try sailing around the beauty of the Greek islands or the delights of Croatia. Check out the likes of Neilson or Not Just Travel for some ideas.
Learn a new skill
Is your family the sporty type? If you’re looking for a way to keep your youngsters active on your next trip, a sports resort could be just the trick. Travel specialists Kuoni offer everything from golf and cricket lessons in Sardinia to tennis and dance in the Caribbean.
If you like the sound of that for yourself, specialists GoLearnTo offer holiday courses in anything from horse riding to climbing in destinations such as Italy, Thailand and Costa Rica. Learn a brand new skill against a backdrop of bliss, what could be better?
