All-inclusive holidays have many advantages over standard holidays, despite the fact that many singletons tend to associate them with tourist-packed resorts and lounging on the beach all day. And there is another side to this type of holiday – all-inclusive adventure trips.
The Benefits of All-Inclusive Trips
So why choose an all-inclusive adventure holiday? For the single traveller, there are a whole host of reasons. This type of travelling allows you to have a holiday on a budget because you needn't worry about overspending and making too much of a dent in your bank balance. Everything is included, from the flights to the accommodation, drinks, food and, of course, the adventure activities. This allows people to get everything they want from a holiday without having to keep track of how much they're spending each day.
One of the drawbacks to going on a standard holiday as a single person is that you have to organise everything yourself, which can be stressful. When you want to take a holiday to relax and enjoy yourself, getting stressed out in the process of planning it seems counterintuitive. With an all-inclusive holiday, everything is arranged and included in the travel package, so you don't need to worry about forgetting to book something.
Dining out is another thing which is taken care of when you opt for an all-inclusive trip. Many of the resorts provide their guests with a choice of several restaurants in which they can dine, with the charge for each covered by their payment for the holiday. This avoids the problem of looking for a decent restaurant during the evenings, which is especially important on an adventure holiday as you're likely to feel worn out after your daytime activities.
All-inclusive adventure trips also allow you to choose the exact activities you want to take part in while you're away. So you can pick and choose from a wide range of fun, exhilarating things to do, such as hiking, cycling, windsurfing and kayaking. For the single traveller, doing these things on your own could be a little dull. However, with an all-inclusive holiday, you will almost always engage in these activities with a group of people who have bought the same travel package. This makes it easy to meet new people in a fun and relaxing environment.
Destinations for Adventure Holidays
In terms of where to go on all inclusive American holidays, there are many options for the adventure junkie. For those that want to experience lush green rainforests without having to travel too far, Kauai is an excellent option. Here you'll find some of the world's most incredible islands, filled with jagged cliffs, plummeting waterfalls and misty forests. There are plenty of cliff-side trails, endless miles of shoreline and some powerful waves for those who love to surf.
Although it may surprise some singletons, one of the best North American places for an adventure holiday is close to Portland. Forest Park is one the US's largest parks and is crosshatched with plenty of jogging, biking and hiking trails. Mount Hood is also nearby and here you can go dirt biking if you're feeling brave or take a canoe trip down the Columbia and Willamette rivers.
