Special Interest Holidays
When we can, perhaps, enjoy the privilege of a holiday only once a year, we’d like to make it worthwhile and as close to perfect, as is possible. Some people love being on the beach or sunbathing by the swimming pool, others prefer shopping or clubbing. Friends you have might go for the pampering relaxation kind of a break and others still are after high octane adrenalin thrills like mountain biking, climbing or white water rafting. You might not share any of those passions, but are after something more specialised and tailored to your hobby or interest – a special interest holiday.
Special interest holidays cover more or less anything you want to get up to on your holiday, which is not already covered by adventure, activity or relaxation holidays. You might have an interest in tea and consider a Darjeeling tour of India, or you might want to find out more about Stonehenge or the stone heads on the Easter Islands. There is an almost endless array of very diverse special interest holidays, ranging from archaeology and astronomy to wine tasting or Jazz. There are great rail journeys to be had and carnivals and festivals to be experienced. If you are a birdwatcher, you will be snowed under by the myriad of bird watching holidays, or you might want to learn to do new things or old things, but differently – a foreign language, cooking.
There is a whole market for “Learn to” holidays, including sailing, playing golf, horse riding, diving or painting to name but a few. Any different ability level can be catered for from novice, to intermediate, wanting to refine skills and professional, so it’s easy, if you want to take the whole family or go with a group of friends, who are all differently able, and enjoy your holiday, your activity and the people you are with.
Accommodation too is very versatile and most things can be catered for. You have the choice of a vast spectrum of accommodation including location and level of comfort and luxury – all you have to do is decide, whether you want to spend your special holiday in a villa or self catering. You might even want to sample some more unusual types of accommodation – tipis in Wales, tree houses, yurts, eco cabins or Bedouin camps. Some holiday companies specialise in unusual types of accommodation to add a bit spice and adventure to your already special special interest holiday.
So, whatever your special interest, be it in the arts or history or music or travelling itself, the world is your oyster, when it comes to choice. The great thing about a special interest holiday is, that it has authenticity as you are able to immerse yourself in the different cultures you encounter, when pursuing your special interest.
