Take the High Road: Activity-based Travel for Women

Adventure travel for women is not unheard of! In fact, getting adventurous gives you a different perspective on a destination.

Sure, travel broadens the mind, but it could push your physical limits as well. We look at the different kinds of creative, mental, physical and spiritual journeys women can go on while travelling.

1.) Surf’s Up

Scuba-dive, swim, surf, kayak, river-raft, sail and much more – explore a whole new world, and possibly a new side to yourself with easy adventures in the briny blue. What’s amazing about all of these activities is that you can enjoy most of them as much as a beginner or newbie, as you would if you were an old hand.

India: Goa, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Leh Ladakh

Abroad: Hawaii, Ireland, Australia

 

2.) Climb Every Mountain

It’s not for everybody – but, once you’ve experienced the thrill of wrestling with nature and winning, that too, on the top of a mountain, nothing else seems good enough! Whether it’s trekking up hills and ranges or using a pick to carve your way up to an icy peak, the summit’s the limit.

India: Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, The Himalayas

Abroad: New Zealand, Europe, Peru, USA

 

3.) Land Ahoy

Hop on a bicycle and take a tour de monde! Or hike your way across landscapes and get up close and personal with nature. Whether you set a leisurely pace, stopping for lunch, tea and snacks, or tackle a test-your-mettle schedule, you’ll see much more of a country than you ever have before.

India: Rajasthan, Kerala, Sikkim, Assam

Abroad: Hawaii, Europe, Morocco, Scotland, USA

 

4.) Rev’em Up

Are you a motorcycle mama? Does the hum of a powerful engine make you want to push the pedal all out? If you’re into cars or bikes, the highway’s your way! Hop in or on, and let the road lead to a different you.

India: Manali, Leh, Chennai, Konkan Coast, NH17

Abroad: Argentina (Ruta 40), USA, Spain, France

 

5.) Find Art & Archaeology

Flex your mind muscles! There are tours led by archaeologists, historians or art experts that take you through museums, sites or ruins. Be amazed by art, artefacts and culture from across the ages and the world, and return culturally richer.

India: Rajasthan, Karnataka, Delhi

Abroad: Greece, France, Egypt, Italy

 

6.) Seek Creativity

7.) Get Well On Holiday

From yoga and spa breaks to Ayurveda and Swedish massages, a wellness or spa holiday allows you to eat healthier, work out, learn new techniques of staying fit, get massages and meditate. The wellness holiday trend goes beyond mere vanity to what lies beneath and helps you heal yourself, not just for now, but for the future too.

India: Karnataka, Kerala

Abroad: Germany, Thailand

 

8.) Culinary Tours

Live to eat? Now, travel to eat as well! A culinary holiday is a great way of spending your time off. Travel to exotic locations, sample new flavours and understand the local culture through your stomach. You can also take cooking lessons, and dream of winning Masterchef, or, at the very least, the hearts of those teaching you and those you cook for.

India: Rajasthan, Kerala, Goa

Abroad: Europe, Japan, Vietnam, Latin America, Australia

 

India or Abroad, Land or Water, Activity or Relaxation… take your pick and set forth on a journey that lets you experience adventure in its best form!
