But then, the range of special interest tours is growing all the time, meaning it’s now possible to experience everything from yoga retreats to birdwatching holidays.
The likelihood is that no matter what interests you, there’s a corner of the world where you’ll be able to pursue it without distraction. It can be anything from learning a new language to quaffing fine wines – although don’t try the two together if you want anybody to understand you.
Special interest holidays also allow you to make the most of what a country has to offer. The rare qualities of the Morocco light make it ideal for a photography tour, and there’s no better way to brush up your horse-riding skills than by spending some time on a ranch in the Australian outback.
And if you fancy being pumiced, pummelled, buffed, cracked, stretched and scrubbed in the name of health, get ready to enter a brave new world of luxurious healthiness with spa & wellness holidays. Today’s spa sojourns cater for everybody - and there’s never been a better time to give it a whirl at one of today’s cutting-edge wellness facilities.
So forget endless games of solitaire or i-spy to stave off holiday boredom. With today’s new breed of special interest tours, you’ll never have a reason to twiddle your thumbs on holiday again. Take your pick from archaeology holidays, camping, photography holidays, yoga breaks, astronomy tours, horse riding holidays, ranching experiences, birdwatching tours and iconic train journeys or see our full range of special interest holidays below.
