The festive period is the graveyard of many a diet and often inspires a wave of New Year’s resolutions designed to repair the damage.
These active breaks will help you to kickstart your New Year and get you back to peak condition. Rock climbing, hiking and cross-country skiing are all good fat-burning exercises, and there are trips suitable for everyone.
Cross-country skiing is popular in the Nordic countries, where it is renowned as a great all-over workout. Book a package trip to Norway or Sweden with Inn Travel.
Another sport which works all of the major muscle groups is rock climbing. There are plenty of spots all over Europe, but one of the most varied is Spain’s Costa Blanca. Thanks to a huge amount of different climbs and balmy weather, the area is a perfect choice for those looking to burn off any excess holiday fat in January.
If you want to combine climbing and hiking, check out via ferrata. The highest concentration of routes is found in the Dolomite Mountains of Italy, where participants traverse stunning passes along specially prepared routes. The idea of the “iron roads” is to assist inexperienced climbers to access far-flung areas using a system of ropes and ladders. It’s a unique experience that will burn off that extra pie you just had to eat over the holidays.
