Stand Up Paddle Boarding or SUP is the ultimate water sport activity for beginners and is steadily rising in popularity. It is a fun, family-friendly means of exercise that is far easier to pick up than other types of board sport but can also be the perfect pre-cursor to a water sports holiday As a form of transport, it can take you to incredible locations that you’d never be able to access otherwise. The hidden coves that are too narrow for boats, the mysterious islands too far away to reach by swimming suddenly become accessible to those who travel by SUP boards. You’ll even get a full body work out from your adventures on the board. Your shoulders and arms drive you forward as your core and legs stabilise the deck.

I’m a Celebrity...Get me out of Here! has been gracing our screens since August 2002; first of all, where on earth has the time gone? It was 2010 last week, we swear! Secondly, upon sitting comfortably getting ready to watch another group of celebs have spiders the size of small dogs thrown at them, we had a thought. Now admittedly (and thankfully) none of the wellness and adventure destinations we offer include having to eat unsavoury Kangaroo appendages, sleep with rats or swim with crocodiles...but many of them do offer a similar sense of adventure, exploration and group comradery.

Spa and Hammam have been part of Turkish culture for the past 1400 years. Some of Istanbul’s marble bath houses have been in use since the early 18th Century.

In the ancient Indo-European language of Sanskrit, Abhyanga literally means ‘self-massage with oil’. This humble means of relaxing massage has scores of health benefits and is a great contributor to overall personal wellness. Ayurvedic massage, of which Abhyanga is an important element, has been practiced in India for at least 5000 years. This form of massage has an extensive heritage and a culture that has developed and improved over millennia. It is a style of wellness that is centred in the natural: encouraging one to find balance with the world around them through the meditative and soothing art of oil massage.
