Here, we’ve picked out the best TRIPS by Culture Trip with a moderate physical activity level.
1 . Ziplining through cloud forests and swimming in waterfalls in Costa Rica

This nine-day Costa Rica adventure strikes the perfect balance between exploration and relaxation. Keep your eyes peeled for capuchin monkeys and jaguars as you walk along hanging bridges on a wildlife safari in Arenal National Park, before hiking through the jungle to La Fortuna waterfall, where you’ll be able to cool off in the rock pool below. You’ll also go white water rafting on the Balsa River, soak in hot springs, and have an opportunity to go ziplining through Monteverde Cloud Forest. In Tamarindo, a trendy town on the Pacific coast, you can learn to surf, relax your body and mind in a yoga class, or head out on an optional mountain biking adventure.

2 . Sea kayaking, beach walking and wild swimming in the Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides, a collection of islands off Scotland’s west coast, feature some of the most impressive scenery in the UK, which you can see for yourself on this seven-day trip, featuring moderate levels of physical activity. A swim in the Fairy Pools will invigorate your senses, while a hike in the Trotternish hills offers magnificent panoramas of the Isle of Skye’s rugged, windswept landscapes. Stop by a whisky distillery on the Isle of Harris before moving on to the sweeping, golden beaches of the Isle of Lewis. Feel free to explore at your own pace, or set out on an optional sea kayaking adventure.

3 . Jungle trekking, caving and soaking in hot springs in Northern Thailand

Trek through the jungle, swim in waterfalls and visit an elephant sanctuary on this 10-day trip through Northern Thailand. Scrambling up the peculiar Bua Tong Sticky Waterfall, traversing rice paddies via the Kho Kuu So bamboo bridge and following walking trails along the cliff tops on either side of the Pai Canyon are particular highlights, showing you a side of Thailand many travellers overlook in favour of more renowned destinations. You’ll also explore Tham Lod Cave – one of the largest cave systems in Thailand – soak in the Ngam Hot Springs, and climb to the summit of Thailand’s highest mountain, Doi Inthanon, for spectacular sunrise views.

4 . Hiking to remote villages and churches in rural Georgia

Georgia, at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, boasts snow-capped mountains, an eclectic mix of cultures and a proud culinary heritage, which you’ll experience on this immersive nine-day Culture Trip adventure, accompanied by a local insider. While hiking through the tranquil forests of Lagodekhi National Park, close to the border with Russia and Azerbaijan, you may be lucky enough to spot golden eagles, wild boars, or possibly even bears and wolves. You’ll also trek to the postcard-worthy Gergeti Trinity Church, which sits on top of a grassy ridge, framed by the jagged peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, and visit the tiny, remote village of Juta – one of the highest altitude settlements in the region.
