Active & Adventurous


If you are a traveller who wants an active and/or adventurous vacation, you may be looking for something different from the usual run of the mill vacation. The main ingredients of this type of travel could be any of the following. Climbing, Scuba Diving, Cycling, Trekking, Rafting, Sailing, Camping, and Hiking to name a few. Goway offers you a number of travel ideas which include these activities and more. You don’t have to be young in years as much as healthy, young at heart and energetic to take part. The possibilities for this type of vacation are almost limitless in our world.

What does your next Adventure Vacation look like?

You could consider a trek through Milford Sound in New Zealand with its majestic fjords and scenic valleys or what about the Cradle Mountain Walk in Tasmania, Australia with daily forays into the mountains. If the awe inspiring Himalayas are calling, you can experience our scenic Everest Trek. Or perhaps you may decide on a shorter trek from 3 days upwards at a much lower altitude.

With hundreds of active and adventure travel packages, that are all fully customizable, we can deliver the experience you seek. 

Active & Adventurous Group Tours

You could consider one of our longer in-depth group tours such as the 3 week China Experience travelling by bus, train and boat. Superb opportunities for diving are available on the Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Malaysia, in Belize and many other destinations. Want to cycle in Asia? This can be done very comfortably in Vietnam on an organized tour. Africa lends itself very easily to safari experiences. And for South America, what about the Inca Trail trek in Peru taking in the amazing Machu Picchu.

Accommodation during Active Travel

An Adventure Vacation may not always deliver the most luxurious accommodation, however you will have comfortable and pleasant places in which to stay, sometimes a lodge or a camp. No ‘Back to the Boy Scouts” experience, you will be surprised at how good some of the accommodation provided can be.

The list of Active Adventures includes numerous opportunities. We suggest you check out our Active Adventures by country for more in-depth details.
