Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

The perfect way to explore Holland's Hansa Region is by bike!  Even better, bike AND boat Holland so you only need to unpack once.  

The Hansa cycling tour starts and ends in Amsterdam.  You'll bike along the Rhine & IJssel, and visit Hanseatic cities like Deventer & Kampen.  You'll also learn about the reclaimed polderlands.

Each day you bike (or simply chill out on the boat) to the next port.  You'll have plenty of time to check out cafes, museums and scenery as you explore this amazing, bike-friendly country!

The terrain is mostly flat, but E-bikes are an option if you want to conserve your energy for exploration of each new village.

At the end of the day, you meet up with the ship and sail off to the next stop.  Super easy and VERY convenient!  

Meals are included on this affordable European active vacation.

This is a great holiday if YOU want adventure, but your partner wants to chill (he or she can hang out on the boat and have a scenic boat tour each day!).  And you can decide each day if maybe YOU want to chill, too!
