Free Active Pack
All of our mountain and lake holidays come with an inclusive package of activities which we’ve put together to help you make the most out of your holiday. We’ve added a little twist to the classic camping holiday and our Alpine Elements neighbourhood of mobile homes within Club Mayotte is looked after by a fun-loving bunch of British staff on site… which is what makes our holidays stand out.
Our free ‘Active Packs’ include unlimited use of bikes, paddleboards, kayaks and other great activities and excursions organised by your Alpine Elements Active Rep; like guided bike rides and Learn to Surf trips - so they’re really worth having.
You can pay a little extra to add even more activities to your holiday, but we’ve included some of the best for free.

These itineraries are a guide. Many of the activities like windsurfing, sailing etc will be planned for you but can’t necessarily all take place on set dates due to availability, however we will always try to accommodate requests. Our Active Reps are on hand for advice and helping you plan your week.
Most of the bike ride and walking suggestions are self-guided, (unless otherwise stated). We provide the Route Cards and maps, so you can find your own way around marked trails.
