Do you love to lace-up first thing in the morning and hit the pavement? If running is more of a passion than a hobby, you might be interested in Flight Centre Active Travel's range of running and marathon holidays. Secure your place with the best or on the sidelines for upcoming marathons in Rome, Paris, Berlin, Honolulu and New York. Closer to home, Run Gold Coast boasts the fasttest, flatest course in Australia.
Cycling is not just a great way to stay fit, it's also a fantastic way to see the sights when you're on holiday. You might choose to travel for the sole purpose of cycling the vineyards of Burgundy or through the southern French Alps, or you may just wish to add a scenic two-wheeled excursion to your travel plans. If mountain biking in Croatia, zipping past the beaches of Cuba or exploring rural Tuscany on a bicicletta sounds like you're kind of travel, get in touch with Flight Centre's active experts today.
Trekking & Adventure
Sometimes there's nothing quite as rewarding as discovering a new destination by the merit of your own two feet. Flight Centre Active Travel can arrange your trekking holiday in Australia, Asia, Africa, Nepal or South America. Tick off a bucket-list experience like walking the Great Wall of China, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, tackling the Kokoda Trail, scaling Mount Everest or the classic Annapurna Circuit, or tracing the ancient Inca Trail.
If you're planning on competing in a marathon or triathlon, leave your travel plans in the hands of the experts and focus on your training. There are tonnes of Ironman competitions that take place in the Asia-Pacific, combining swimming, riding and running in some amazing locations. Why not challenge yourself by competing in a triathlon in Noosa, Mooloolaba, Cairns, Sydney, Melbourne, Wanaka (NZ) or any number of cities in Australia and beyond?
