Rafting, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding near some of the coolest sites and wildlife on the planet is an activity worthy of any water lover’s bucket list. So, leave the landlubbers at home – these are the top TRIPS by Culture Trip around the world for adventure water sports.
1 . The Galápagos, for kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddleboarding

Take an island water holiday like no other to the astounding Galápagos Islands, and spend your vacation days among the best discoveries made by Darwin. You’re entering the animal kingdom at its finest, and you’re encouraged to get to know the locals above, on and under the sea. Kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddleboarding on the Itabaca Channel will get your water-sports adventure fix, while lazy nights chilling with giant tortoises onshore will give you ample time to rest up.

2 . Nepal, for rowing and whitewater rafting

If you thought you couldn’t have a water-sports adventure in the Himalayas, think again. This highly active TRIPS by Culture Trip tour of Nepal offers more than mountain viewing. A laid-back rowing boat trip on the second-largest lake in the country and an epic whitewater-rafting excursion down the Seti River will keep your phone in your drybag for hours at a time. Be sure to bring warm socks; you’ll want to stay cosy afterwards for when you’re searching for Bengal tigers on safari.

3 . Mexico Yucatán, for sailing off Holbox and swimming in hidden cenotes

You know that expensive swimsuit you only wear for special occasions? Pack it for this shoreline adventure on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. With as many as 17 other travellers joining you on this TRIPS by Culture Trip nine-day tour, there’s bound to be someone who can perfectly photograph you tanning on a private catamaran, posing for yin yoga on the beach and swimming in a cenote.

4 . Devon, for wild swimming, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding

Go deep into the wilderness in Devon, trekking across land and sea on this six-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour worthy of the sweat you’ll work up. A stand-up paddleboarding water adventure to Combe Martin and a kayak trip from Hope Cove to Burgh Island bookend a trip spent cycling, hiking and swimming across the country. There will be opportunities to simply see the water as well, like when you’re meandering the South West Coast Path, but hardly long enough for your towel to dry.

5 . Croatia, for island hopping and sea kayaking

The Dalmatian Coast of Croatia is too marvellous to appreciate from dry land. On this eight-day TRIPS by Culture Trip experience, you’ll have the chance to gaze at the brilliant coastal scenery from a cosy seat in a kayak. You’ll climb to the peak of Marjan Hill, then descend to kayak around its base to find hidden beaches. Compare the views from above and below if you choose, but we already know you’ll have a fondness for the vistas from the water.
