Activity & Adventure

Not your average holiday


A holiday can mean different things to different people. For some it means taking a break and slowing down. But to others it’s a chance to get active and take part in hobbies, special interests, activity and adventure.

You might be surprised at just what activities you can do and where. From hiking in the famed national parks of the USA, golfing at the best greens in the Algarve, wine tasting in South Africa, or even climbing Kilimanjaro.

Silver Travel Advisor is an agent member of the Association of Adventure and Touring Suppliers (ATAS) so we’re best placed to inspire and recommend a wide range of activity and adventure holidays.

Activity & Adventure holidays for everyone

Solo Travellers

Take some time to explore your favourite activities and hobbies. It’s a great opportunity to meet others who share your interests.


Together you can pursue your preferred pastimes, whether it's art appreciation, photography, dancing or even thrill-seeking.


Introduce the next generation to an adventurous holiday. There’s no doubt stepping out and enjoying the great outdoors is a great family activity.


Many local groups look to take their hobbies to the next level with a holiday away to share a new take in a different location, from golfing groups, walking clubs or cycling associations.

Recommended destinations

There’s an assortment of activities on our doorstep from hiking in the Lake District, kayaking the lochs of Scotland or teeing off at famous courses in Ireland.

“The peloton of two silver cyclists fixed their sights on lunch, afternoon patisserie and a 3-course dinner with a local vintage. With 4 gentle rides of around 45 km, mainly flat terrain, glorious views, plenty of rest stops, and thighs and stomachs with a bit of a wobble, our first cycling holiday was a winner.”
