Exodus Travels launches Fitness Adventures for the ultimate active traveler
Toronto, Canada. November 14, 2017: Forget tying up those runners to sweat up a storm on the treadmill or dodging traffic on the morning bike ride to work. Leading adventure tour operator Exodus Travels has introduced a way for travelers to get in shape and challenge themselves on NEW Fitness Adventures, trips designed for adventurers to breathe in the fresh air and get their sweat on in some of the world’s most spectacular locations.
These trips are no ordinary bootcamp. From leaving behind the cramped downtown studio for stress relieving yoga in the open air of the French Alps, to trading the rowing machine for the open water and kayaking beneath the Pont d’Arc on the Ardeche River, there’s no better satisfaction than returning from a holiday feeling fit and healthy.
Below are Exodus Travels’ NEW Fitness Adventure trips that will beat a gym membership any day:
Best for: Improving Fitness & Speed
Estonia Fitness Week
8 days, from USD$1,545
Get ready to smash that PB. A week focused on running kicks off in Estonia’s picturesque capital of Tallinn with a mixture of running, spin class, interval training and enough time to enjoy a walking tour of the city and some relaxation in a beautiful hotel spa. Next up Otepaa, a small town nestled in the southern Estonian hills, where both the variety of cardio exercises and scenic views – from running the beautiful forest trails to swimming in tranquil lakes – will increase any fitness lover’s heart rate. Specialist training will be given, making use of the nearby sports track, and the week will culminate in a timed 5km run. Even the ancient Vikings would be impressed.
Best for: Stretching & Breathing Fresh Mountain Air
Walking & Yoga in the French Alps
8 days, from USD$2,015
Rise up to inhale, exhale the refreshing alpine air among France’s lush valleys, high plateaux and dramatic mountain vistas. Nestled at the start of the alpine chain, Vercors provides the perfect backdrop for a week of walking, yoga, and meditation. Each activity is led by Francois, a hiking guide and a highly experienced teacher who loves sharing the joys and benefits of yoga and mindfulness. All classes have a holistic approach that combine postures with breathing practices, relaxation techniques, meditation and mindfulness that let travelers easily let go among a stunning French Alp escape.
Best for: High Intensity Activities in a Land of Contrast
Morocco Fitness Week
8 days, from USD$1,315
Morocco lives up to its bewildering diversity during this jam-packed week of fitness led by Exodus leader and personal trainer, Andy McKee. Things heat up in the coastal town of Essaouira, where travelers will improve their fitness with cardio sessions of strength and stamina through circuits and boxercise. Later on, cycle along the Atlantic coast, embark on sunrise beach runs and take part in abdominal workouts to improve core strength and fitness. No trip to Morocco would be complete without time in Marrakech. Spend two nights here and experience a day trek to foothills of the Atlas Panorama for an invigorating workout and stunning views.
Best for: Setting Goals & Reaping the Rewards
Ardeche Fitness Week
8 days, from USD$2,475
Hard work and determination pay off in the Ardeche region of southern France, with rewards of good food and glorious sunshine. Under the guidance of a fitness professional, this week can be a kick-start to fitness or a key component to achieving a specific goal. The natural landscapes of the imposing gorge and surrounding mountains offer trails and tracks for running, cycling and kayaking, and the beautiful grounds of the Ferme de Bournet – home base for the week – offer the perfect location to press reset. While hard work and exercise is the focus, the region’s French cuisine is a highlight and a delicious reward, as all meals are included.
