Total Fitness in the Maldives
If the gym is your home away from home, you’ll love the “Maldives Boat Escape” hosted by Australia-based company Active Escapes. It involves a weeklong stay on a 123-foot, three-floor luxury yacht with private chef and activities led by experienced personal trainers. Look forward to twice daily fitness sessions, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling through the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. And if you like a little time to relax on the beach, there’s time for that, too!
Nature Immersion on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast
Think an all-inclusive vacation isn’t your style? How about a stay at an all-inclusive eco resort on a secluded island (maximum capacity: 12 guests) in British Columbia? It’s called Cabana Desolation Eco Resort and it looks like a luxury sleep-away camp for adults with six handcrafted cabanas made from locally milled Western red cedar and Douglas fir. While on the island, bathe in the clean forest air and refreshing saltwater, explore the area by sea kayak and take breaks to hike or snorkel. On dark nights, stroll down to the water’s edge to watch phosphorescent plankton dance beneath the surface.
Kayaking on the Italian Riviera
For the woman that wants a little female bonding time and a dose of adventure, Wild Woman Expeditions crafts group vacations that cater to both—whether you like to travel solo or with a partner, daughter or best friend. One example is the “Italian Riviera & Cinque Terre” tour by kayak, where you’ll spend five days paddling through the Mediterranean along Italy’s colourful coastline. With plenty of time to explore scenic towns and sleep in tiny villages (and one family-owned coastal farm!), this vacay has the perfect balance of physical activity and culture.
