Leading UK activity provider includes exciting and original destinations to its list of activity breaks for this summer

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - April 30th, 2012 - Activity holiday specialist Activities Abroad offers a wide variety of exciting, energetic pursuits for all the family in breathtaking scenery in the UK, Europe and beyond. For summer 2012 the list has been extended to include trips that offer something very different to the usual activity holiday.

In Montenegro, Kotor Valley is home to spectacular mountain scenery. Amid reminders of the region’s medieval Venetian rule, visitors enjoy snorkelling in turquoise waters, white-water rafting and kayaking, orienteering and hiking, with instruction and supervision provided.

Bulgaria’s Rila National Park offers thrilling outdoor activities in a region known for its biodiversity. There are horse riding trails, mountain-biking and even jeep safaris, through forests, canyons and waterfalls, plus sailing and wake-boarding at the Iskar Dam lake.

The equatorial jungles of Borneo provide stunning backdrops for trekking, rafting, rainforest trips to the Gormantong caves, plus the chance to meet endangered species like the pygmy elephant, in the wild. Trips start and end in the idyllic coastal resort of Kota Kinabalu.

Peru offers an incomparable, energetic tour through zoology, history and varied geography, from the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, through the vulnerable, fascinating living rainforest, to arid desert beside the Pacific. Activities here take advantage of river canyons, mountains and the vast Lake Titicaca.

Visitors to Ecuador can mountain-bike down volcanoes, enjoy white-water rafting and ride zip-wires through canyons, in the spectacular diversity of this exciting country. Plus, days of scuba diving and exploration of the famously remote, precious Galapagos Islands.

Closer to home, Fuerteventura is the perfect place to learn sea kayaking or surfing, and a week at El Cotillo includes instruction and equipment. Less developed than some Canary Islands, the area still provides a golf course and zoo, with pristine beaches around the unspoilt fishing village.

The Alentejo Coast is a favourite seaside destination for the Portuguese, away from the overcrowded Algarve. Fabulous seafood and steak menus revive guests wearied by long days spent cycling or in the Atlantic surf.
