Adventure means different things to different people, and what one person finds thrilling and exhilarating could be everyday and bland to another. In this section we feature reliable retreats where you might step out of your comfort zone and try something new, whether that’s to do with the countries you visit, the activities you do, the people you meet, even the food you eat. If you’ve only ever visited Europe, then going further afield to an exciting location such as Ecuador, Mongolia or Japan would be a proper adventure. Always stay in hotels? Then opt for a log cabin in the remote Scottish Highlands. As far as activities go, you could head to the Swiss Alps and do some mountaineering, go island hopping in Panama, or try a bootcamp in Spain. Maybe you could look at your bucket list and use our retreats to tick off experiences, such as seeing the Northern Lights and the midnight sun? Some Lu Jong yoga, an Ayurveda therapy or a new sport like surfing or diving could satisfy your curiosity. Even meeting new people from different cultures might tick your adventure box. You’ll emerge from your holiday with a thirst for life and living.
