activity short breaks & holidays
individuals,families, and groups,
Individuals, couples, families and friends who love being outdoors and active will enjoy our longer activity breaks and activity holidays.
This is a great opportunity to try a range of adventure activities over a longer period of time at realistic prices from 3 – 5 days. They are great for everyone, bringing like minded people together when the focus is on being involved and taking an active part in our adventure activities. You may or may not be staying with us – the choice is yours.
You choose which days and which activities inspire or appeal to you.
Choose from |
- a specific activity for a number of days to develop your skills in one sport
- a multi-activity break or week to give a chance to try a range of different activities for all ages and abilities
- try a range of activities such as kayaking on lochs, rivers or the sea; open canoeing; rock climbing & abseiling; dinghy sailing; mountain walking
- or take a day or half day out from the above more “full on” activities to do other things.
- recommended | If outdoor activities are new to you or your family we recommend trying your hand at at 2-3 different activities for a day or half days then 1 or 2 days to really develop one of them further to develop a real sense of achievement.
Very often the simplest things make folks really happy and satisfied. Give them something different besides the adventurous things | : visit a castle; go wild life watching; catch a fish from the local pier; take a boat fishing trip; take a fun bike ride with no traffic and no sweat; take a walk in the forest or a mountain gondola ride; go to a sweet or chocolate factory or a gem stone centre or a sea life centre; visit a distillery; take a game of golf; visit spectacular waterfalls and take a look at iconic film locations ……….. And loads more in a relaxing couple of hours during the week – maybe a beautiful beach and a sunny day, an evening ceihlidh and the local music scene; sample local sea food; visit a distillery; take part in a local event.and make a family break they’ll really remember forever.
For families | Adventure activity based holidays are ideal during the main holidays – preferably in late May or the main summer holidays from late June – late August. This is particularly so for families with younger members. In the main summer holidays our longer activity holidays and breaks tend to be either a significant part of the holiday or the main focus.
However, activity based holidays do not have to be “adventure sports” centred all the time and do not need to be all encompassing but can give your family a welcome break in a new environment with some more relaxed time built in. Happy children (and teenagers!) make for great family breaks anywhere in the UK. We know all about the parental tricks, too, about what children like. Maybe other kids around; short travel times; Wi-fi (crucial for teenagers); a worthwhile Plan B, in case the weather is poor; ice-cream; wetsuits.
Provided that everyone is well kitted out and well looked after it’s good for them and you to be out on the loch, river, sea, rock or hill using a paddle, bike, boots or sail to get around. Bonding as a family is great in these surroundings. But when you’re eight (eighteen or eighty) years old, with a gigantic grin on your face, standing on your first “mountain” looking at the world unfold below you, and thinking, “I did that!” you’ll remember that for the rest of your life.
For Groups of friends | An activity break or longer holiday are easy to arrange either in the main summer holidays or more off season for groups of adults and give you and your group of friends a well deserved longer break away from the routine of work and home. This is chance to try new skills, experiences, see new places & experience new environments – or take some chill out time at a more relaxed pace to be really remembered and appreciated.
Keeping everyone happy (including teenagers!) on breaks away at Snowgoose Mountain Centre at any time of year is no problem. A number of simple alternative options can often make folks really happy and satisfied – even if they are not really full on activity orientated.
