1. Canada

Enjoy views of the breathtaking Canadian Rockies on the famous sleeper trains, hike the Mount Edith Cavell and marvel at the dramatic scenery, canoe around Lake Louise and try your hand at fly-fishing or explore Banff National Park on horseback.

“What a fabulous holiday. PB attention to detail with our itinerary was superb, every person has been an absolute joy to coordinate with and we simply have the best time. This was our first adventure holiday and we are already making plans for our next with you!” 

Our favourite viewpoint - The peak of Mount Edith Cavell


2. Costa Rica

Explore primordial cloud forests via tree-top walkways, whizz through the rainforest on a zip line, discover the jungle from a new perspective on a guided night walk and enjoy a birds-eye view of the volcanoes from a helicopter.

“The Costa Rican holiday delivered exactly what we wanted and expected. It has opened our eyes to this type of holiday, which we all very much enjoyed. The fact that it was all planned out was superb and everything flowed together. We saw amazing wildlife on our turtle tour and nighttime forest walk and we loved the canyoning, water tubing, rafting and surfing.” 

Our favourite viewpoint - At the summit of the Irazú volcano near San José

3. Iceland

Hike through a lava field and marvel at the inside of a volcano, ride over glaciers on an exciting snowmobile tour and bathe in the world-renowned blue lagoon with geothermal hot water thanks to natural active ingredients.

“This was our first adventure trip with you having done several skiing holidays which have been phenomenal. And this was no exception, everything was planned to perfection and the activities we did were fantastic - another perfect family holiday, thank you!” 

Our favourite viewpoint - The lava fields at Landmannalaugar


4. The Italian Dolomites

Explore the beauty of the Dolomites on horseback, cycle the exhilarating Sellaronda trails and take to the trees on a high-level ropes course followed by some fun white water rafting on fast-flowing mountain rivers.

“This was honestly our best holiday with our boys ever (and having had a 3 week trip to Australia 6 months before that’s saying something!) for a family holiday, this is the best option with energetic boys. Having asked for walking/cycling we couldn’t have hoped for a better itinerary.” 

Our favourite viewpoint - At the top of Viel Del Pan at the feet of the mighty Marmolada  mountain


5. Peru

Explore the rainforest via foot or dugout canoe and see a whole host of wildlife from different perspectives. For a true wilderness experience, discover the hidden gem that is the Black Canyon of Rio Apurimac, combining exhilarating rapids with deserted beaches. Embark on the famous cultural trek to Macchu Picchu following the ancient Inca trail.

“Our trip to Peru was brilliant from start to finish. We were very happy with the whole experience, it was a perfect family holiday. Thank you so much for organising the holiday, all elements were fantastic - activities, hotels, food… the lot!” 

Our favourite viewpoint - Atop the iconic Machu Picchu
