Suggestions for your active holiday


Relaxing summer vacations at the beach are more and more substituted by activity holidays. The reason is simple: switching off our heads from work tasks is often only achieved by an adequate amount of physical exercise. In order to ensure enough regeneration and rest, travel agencies offer compiled activity holiday packages.

Active holiday rather than laze on the beach


Miles of fine sandy beacher, magical sunsets gazing out over the immensity of the sea, and refreshing sea air: this very well exposes the holiday dream of many tourists. Relax and trying to leave the daily routine and thoughts behind is the main goal.

But is this really that effective as we believe? Is the body capable to regenerate when we laze around at the pool or tan at the beach? Researchers argue that vacations at the beach can be relaxing for many but does also reflect purely horror for many others.

Especially for people who experience a stressful daily work-life, physical exercise represents an essential component in order to recover from their job-off days.

Lately, scientists have more and more emphasized the importance of physical activities to promote the individuals’ cognitive skills. Therefore, one may assume that activity holidays seem to be the perfect solution.



Travel agencies seem to follow this trend


There is a wider ride of offers by the travel agencies. From trekking in the Himalaya to surfing in Brazil, there is something appropriate for everyone. Besides special activity travel agencies like Frosch Sportreisen, popular travel centers start to focus more and more on offering packaged action holidays where physical exercise is well considered. Neckermann and TUI offer golfing vacations in turkey or Nordic walking activities in Madeira, to enlarge their range of offers. And if this still doesn’t suit your taste and fancy, there is still the option to create your own activity holiday with provided advice of the travel agents.
