Flyboarding is starting to make quite the name for itself – in fact, you’ve probably seen viral videos of the latest watersports craze as you’ve scrolled down your Facebook feed. But if you haven’t heard of it, here’s the low-down. You’ll be strapped into a pair of wakeboard-like boots, through which jets of water are thrust, propelling you like Iron Man into the air. The best bit about Flyboarding – other than pretending you’re Tony Stark, of course – is that, even though it looks really hard, it’s actually not as difficult to get the hang of. Or so they say. You can be the judge when you sign up to our Flyboarding trip in Puerto Vallarta, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.
You’d be forgiven for thinking holidays to Lapland were only good for taking kids to visit the big man himself. But, actually, there are a number of reasons why grown-ups shouldn’t sleep on the ultimate winter wonderland. For a start, where else can you buzz a snowmobile through snow-dusted forests and over frozen lakes? There’s even an adults-only night-time option when, if you’re lucky, you’ll have the spectacular Northern Lights illuminating your path.
‘Feel the rhythm. Feel the rhyme. Get on up. It’s bobsled time.’ If that quote, from the iconic Disney film, Cool Runnings, gives you instant 1993 nostalgia, then you’re in luck. On the feel-good island of Jamaica – where the classic film is set – you can go on a daytrip up into the Mystic Mountain, which ends with a tropical take on a bobsled ride. Channel your inner Sanka and co, as you hurtle through the rainforest at breakneck speed. And not a lucky egg in sight.
If you’re off to Cape Verde, here’s your chance to see the islands like you’ve never seen them before – on the back of an all-terrain quad bike. You’ll kick up the sand as you purr through untouched beaches, pearly-white salt plains, and corrugated cliffsides. Take the four-hour drive through the island of Sal, and look out for the Blue Eye – a cave pool carved by lava, which glows a gorgeous neon blue when the light hits it.
Let’s face it, Dubai’s bigger-is-better attitude means that, now it’s started making waves on the tourist trail, there’s not much you can’t do there. Where do we even start? Skiing down the world’s biggest indoor ski slope. Skydiving above the stunning Palm Jumeirah. Driving a real-life racing car, on a real-life circuit. The choice is endless. What’s more, our inaugural flights to Dubai take off this December, so there’s never been a better time to think about your winter break.
Atlantis, The Palm is one of the most luxurious hotels in Dubai, and comes with 23 bars and restaurants and an underwater cinema.
The Santasport Hotel lines up a huge list of winter sports for you to try, before you go out on a snowmobiling adventure.
Watersports enthusiasts will love the Riu Karamboa. Other highlights include a tropical pool and a trio of restaurants.
