Relax and reflect on your incredible journey!
This phase is designed to let the team unwind and enjoy cultural and adventure activities. Depending on your destination, you could go white water rafting, zip lining in the forest canopy, or go snorkelling among exotic marine life. Low-key activities could include relaxing on a beach or exploring the museums of a capital city. Every destination has some form of local market for souvenir hunting, so there is always an excuse to shop!
HOW DOES THE REST & RELAXATION PHASE WORK?
Typically, this phase falls at the end of your itinerary, allowing you to reflect on the achievements throughout the expedition during some downtime. However, a lot of destinations have so many potential activities spread across the country that you may find there are options to intersperse your itinerary with a few bits of R&R. Safety is paramount, so for all of our technical activities we have audited and approved suppliers and we are confident to put you in their hands.
TYPES OF REST & RELAXATION ACTIVITIES
Some teams enjoy visiting local museums and galleries, chilling out at the beach or sampling local delicacies, but for those who want a bit more action, check out some of our most popular rest and relaxation options:
Take this opportunity to get up close with some of the world’s most stunning wild life, from rhinos to lions, to orangutans, and maybe even a lemur! Those heading to Ecuador & Galapagos may experience close up encounters with seals, iguanas and sea turtles! Destinations featuring great wildlife viewing include Malaysia, Botswana, Tanzania and Ecuador & Galapagos.
White water rafting is a very popular choice with our teams and it’s obvious why! The thrilling adrenaline buzz you get as you battle with everything the raging river throws at you makes this an expedition highlight for many Challengers. Not too mention some of the incredible landscapes that you raft through. Destinations offering great white-water rafting opportunities include Malaysia, Ecuador, Peru and Nepal.
Snorkel through crystal blue waters, gliding over the reef tops and be mesmerised by the vivid colours of the fish as they dart in and out of the coral. Some destinations even give you the opportunity to swim close to ocean turtles and seals. Destinations featuring snorkelling Malaysia, Fiji, Ecuador & Galapagos and Madagascar.
In Kyrgyzstan people believe that spending time with horses can take away negative energy, replacing it with a sought-after positive mood. Walk through valleys, beaches and visit ancient sites on horseback. Destinations that you can go horse riding in include Ecuador, South Africa, Silk Route and Mongolia.
