With physical ratings ranging from easy to challenging, TRIPS by Culture Trip put you on a tight-knit team ready to conquer whatever challenge is on the horizon. Whether you’re taking a compact hike over the course of a long weekend or spending a full week getting lost in the world, our Active itineraries maximise every moment, so you won’t waste time with unnecessary rest stops. Close your eyes and envision the pride of summiting a country’s highest peak, the rush of charging into a dark cave, and the thrill of carving your own snow path with hardly another soul in sight. Here’s what to expect on an Active TRIP by Culture Trip.
1 . Discover nature’s wild side in Devon
With the dress code almost as bare as can be, you’re in for an exhilarating adventure in the wilds of Devon. Get ready to strip down to your skivvies and swim from coast to countryside. On-water adventure soaks this schedule, floating you from stand-up paddleboarding sessions in Combe Martin, to kayaking around Burgh Island. Beaches, natural pools and nearly every swimming hole in between will be your spot for a refreshing dip. No towel, no problem. Dry your slippery skin with cycle rides on the Tarka Trail and hikes through Dartmoor National Park.

2 . Summit mountains and delve underground in North Wales
Your wild side has been docile for too long, so let the craggy coastline and remote caverns of Wales let your sense of adventure off the leash. This challenging trek is far from leisurely. You’ll summit Snowdon, the highest peak in the country, and venture deep into an underground slate mine, foraging for food along the way. Scaling waterfalls and ziplining into the pitch black is all in a day’s work on this small-group excursion. You’ll emerge less than a week later with nothing on your mind except getting back to this extreme playground as soon as possible.

3 . Snowshoe and dog-sled your way through the Scottish Highlands
Who says you need to walk through a winter wonderland? Strap on a pair of snowshoes and get ready to make tracks through the Scottish Highlands. This long-weekend adventure will take you into the mountains for snowshoeing, indoor ice climbing and dog sledding across the countryside. Naturally, it wouldn’t be a proper visit to Scotland without a pause for some Scotch-tasting; a worthy way to warm up after four days in the cold. One of the most impressive moments of the trip will also be the most sobering: the chance to stand in awe beneath the dancing Northern Lights.

4 . Get your adrenaline fix in Colorado forests and Utah red-rock deserts

There’s the road less travelled, then there’s this off-road adventure through America’s rugged backcountry. From the high-altitude alpine forests of Colorado to the red-rock deserts of Utah, you’ll hardly have a minute to acclimatise before speeding off to your next high-octane activity. Thrillseekers will experience a steady, heady injection of adrenaline at every point on the trip – rafting down the Colorado River and tracking black bears will see to that for starters. Even nights of rest aren’t without a quickened pulse, as you’ll enjoy cocktails at the Stanley Hotel, whose atmosphere inspired a guest – one Stephen King – to come up with the Overlook Hotel for his horror story The Shining.
