Mixed activity trips are tours that have more than one adventure activity on offer. Depending on what you're into, you can find combinations of hiking, rafting, kayaking, ziplining, and more. These activities complement each other and merge together to create a diverse and exciting tour.
If you are an adventure addict, the more activities you can fit into a single trip the better! At Skyhook, we've tracked down some epic adventures that combine a variety of outdoor disciplines. These are perfect for those who don't want to commit to spending their entire getaway hiking or kayaking. They're also a great option for those who love trying new things; you may even discover a new passion!
Combine mountain climbing with desert exploration, cycle, raft and zipline your way through the jungle or cool off with elephants on a tuk-tuk road trip through Thailand. These are just a few of our favourite mixed trips.
Before you sign up, make sure you read the itinerary carefully and know what's in store. Some activities are optional, but others are an integral part of the trip. Make sure that your interests match what is on offer.
When you sign up for one of these tours, you can be sure you get more than your money's worth!
On most of our mixed trips, there are activities that are optional eg. camel riding, rafting, or even cliff jumping. If you don't want to do a particular activity, you usually have the option to watch, relax or choose an alternative.
Unless otherwise stated, all parts of your trip are included in the price. For some tours there are optional add-ons, in this case, they should be stated under the 'what's included' section of the FAQs. Any extras are normally paid for in-country directly to the tour operator.
When you are booked onto a mixed trip, it's a good idea to pack clothing items that will work for different disciplines, for example, quick-dry clothing for any trip that involves water activities. Trail running shoes work well if you are going to be doing hiking as well as something like cycling where hiking boots are too chunky. When in doubt, send the guide a message after booking.
Most good travel insurers will cover popular tourist activities like cycling, zip-lining, camel rides, etc. However, it's worth checking in beforehand that you are covered for more 'extreme' activities like white water rafting and mountain climbs to high altitudes.
Generally, no experience is necessary for these mixed adventures. However, in some cases, basic skills are required. For example, you do need to know how to ride a bicycle for the Inca Jungle trek and you should be able to swim before attempting any water activities.
