Take a multi-activity trip this winter and do more for less

3rd November 2009 Print

Travellers are realising that snow is good for a lot more than just skiing, according to The Adventure Company. The adventure tour operator has seen its winter multi-activity trips rise in popularity this season as travellers look for more varied and unusual ways to embrace the European winter.


Igloo-building, dog-sledding, ice fishing, and sledging are just some of the options available on The Adventure Company’s trips. With reductions and early booking offers available, adventure-seekers are advised to book soon to avoid missing out.


Almost a quarter of spaces on the Finnish Dogsledding Week  - a new trip for early 2010 – were booked within three weeks of the trip being launched in the new Worldwide Adventures brochure and online earlier this month (October 2009). The trip includes a five-day husky dog-sledding expedition beginning in Lapland, Finland, just south of the Arctic Circle – a once-in-a-lifetime experience for travellers.


The new trip includes a stay in the Ice Hotel in Sweden, and has already proved to be popular with all departures over 50% sold already.


Flights over Christmas and New Year are already selling fast, so The Adventure Company has reduced a number of its winter trips to encourage customers to book now. These savings can be found on selected departures of trips to Bulgaria, Slovakia and Finland including:


High Peaks Snowshoeing – reduced by up to £110 per person


Spend New Years Eve in Bulgaria enjoying winter trekking in the Rila Mountains, relaxing in thermal spas and meeting the locals. The 27th December 2009 departure has been reduced by £110 from £829 to £719, including flights.


Slovakian Snow Adventure – reduced by up to £400 for a family of four


Families can enjoy a white Christmas in Slovakia on this trip which includes sledging, skiing, dog-sledding and other activities in the price. Adult and child places have each been reduced by £100 for the 20th December 2009 departure. The trip is now available for £869 per adult and £789 per child.


Winter Wonderland Adventure – reduced by up to £440 for a family of four


The 26th December 2009 departure of this family trip to Finland has been reduced by £130 for adults and £90 for children.
