We are the UK’s leading Activity Travel Company.
Here at Activities Abroad we offer more than just the usual holiday experience, we have developed an extensive programme of overseas activity holidays in a number of different countries, featuring a wide range of activities.
Our itineraries offer new and exciting experiences as diverse as canyoning in Provence, snowmobiling in Finland and searching for the Northern Lights in Norway.
Our activity holidays are suitable for families, single parent families, adults only, groups, couples, and singles.
So, why Choose Activities Abroad?
When we started out almost ten years ago there were very few companies offering activity holidays. Nowadays, the choice can be bewildering. So why would you choose Activities Abroad above the rest? Here’s three very important reasons.
“A wonderful holiday, the location is perfect, the weather was ideal and the activities were a very good mix which suited our family.” Julia Macdougall – Catalan Pyrenees August 2010
Customer satisfaction is a good place to start. Last summer, our family activity holidays achieved a 95.8% Overall Satisfaction rating from our clients. In these times of financial austerity, you want to be sure your holiday company is going to deliver and that’s what we do year on year.
There’s an old adage used by many companies that you can only please some of the people some of the time. We don’t believe in that philosophy, we want a 100% satisfaction rating and we will continue to strive towards that goal.
Our clients, many of whom travel with us year after year are not interested in an unfulfilling two weeks lying on the beach. They want to come home with a wealth of holiday memories and that’s what we provide. Time and time again we talk to contented clients who use phrases along the lines of “the whole family is still talking about last year’s holiday”.
If you are going to spend your hard earned money on a family holiday then you want to be sure that holiday will meet all your aspirations. That’s where we come in.
We Know Activity Holidays
“Extremely impressed with the service we received from Activities Abroad and with the holiday itself” Sarah Grimwood – Turkey, August 2010
"Talk to the staff at Activities Abroad if you are unsure....we did and I felt they gave us good, sensible advice. They have visited the destination and can advise on most things. And no, I am not on their staff - just a very happy customer. I will def travel with them again when my kids are older and ready for the next level of adventure." Ann Moulton - Savalen, December 2009
Here at Activities Abroad, we research and design all of our trips in conjunction with local tourism suppliers. We sleep and eat in the accommodation; we test out all the activities as well as performing stringent safety assessments; we spend time in the holiday destinations trying out the bars, cafés and restaurants and we get to know the area.
We’ve been doing this for nearly ten years and have accumulated an unparalleled level of experience in the activity holiday market. If you have any questions whatsoever regarding any of our holidays then please speak to us. We will be delighted to share our years of accumulated knowledge with you.
"Your activity guides are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their area of expertise. Taking the extra time to be friendly and explain what they were doing was most appreciated." Matthew Lendon - Luosto, December 2009
“The activity guides were excellent along with the rest of the team. We came across other groups from other companies whilst doing the activities and I was very glad I was in our group, the safety equipment and briefings seemed to be non existant in the other groups” Catherine Colquhoun – Slovenia - August 2010
Whether it’s the accommodation, the transport or the activities, we have rigorous health and safety measures in place. Every single aspect of your holiday has been through a comprehensive Health and Safety Assessment as have the activity companies we work with in the destination countries. Our activity partners are rarely, if ever, the cheapest but we are simply not prepared to cut corners where our clients’ safety is at stake.
