Until quite recently, holiday makers were just merely looking for sunny destinations to escape dull winters in Europe. If a bit of local culture could be thrown in the package, even better.But with the emergence of action and adventure sports, the need to travel to practise these sports has become a necessity, hence the explosion of active holidays. Active holidays are a way for adventure sports addicts to carry on their activity in far away places where conditions are perfect for these types of sports.An easy example is scuba diving. Why would you spend hours underwater in murky places when an active holiday would take you to places where diving is a must. Active holidays have made it possible for resorts to bloom in deserts because people are coming just for the love of diving. The Red Sea has become one of the top destinations for diving holidays. The explosion of life and colours of the reefs have been attracting active holiday makers from all around the world for years.
Other adventure sports like windsurfing and kite surfing are just one more spinal chord of active holidays. These wind addicts are looking to go to places where the wind is strong, stable and guaranteed over a period of the year. Active holidays will make the most of trade winds whether it is in the Caribbean’s, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde or glide on thermal winds in desert areas such as Egypt. This destination is perfect for active holidays because the wind has been there for centuries and is part of the local life.Greece in summer for example is a perfect location for active holidays. The well known Meltem wind blows strong over the Eagan Sea all summer and was used by ancient Greeks for navigating around their pristine waters.Nowadays, we find that active holiday makers are just not into one sport, but they are multi talented. No wind? Let’s go surfing. No waves? Let’s go diving! Clear skies? lets go skydiving!Also, the famous “surf widow “is becoming less and less common. The cliche of the girlfriend getting roasted while the boyfriend is enjoying his active holiday is becoming a thing of the past. Girls, nowadays, are the most adventurous and account for a higher percentage of the multi activity holidays market. Some sports do not require a huge amount of body strength. In some cases like scuba diving, it could even be an advantage to be women.Active Holidays are now enjoyed by couples and sometimes families. In some cases, the kids drag their parents in an active holiday; sometimes the parents will take the little ones along to make them discover their favourite sport in a perfect environment for learning. Isn’t it much easier to become addicted to an adventure sport when the conditions are perfect, the water pristine and warm? How many kids became disgusted from windsurfing because they had to learn in a cold reservoir with gusty winds and garbage floating about? And then became hooked after an active holiday in warm waters and gentle constant breeze.
In short active holidays are available to all types of people. Easy access abroad has helped these holidays take a whole new turn to frequent action packed holidays. The more the demand the more the supply. So there is no doubt activity holidays will increase and attract an even wider range of people.
