Please note:

These itineraries are a guide. Many of the resort-based activities like ice skating, paddle boarding, sailing, tennis etc are self-serve which means you travel to (e.g. the nearby lake) and organise in your own time. You may need to wait for sessions in busy periods. Our Active Reps are on hand for advice.

For the organised activities, (like white water rafting and guided biking and walking), we will organise travel and meeting points. Session times may change.

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.
