Touring may not seem like the most obvious choice if you’re looking for a wellness holiday, but a new breed of tour combines small group travel with an emphasis on health and wellbeing. On a wellness tour you can expect itineraries with a slower pace, visiting off-the-beaten-track locations, secluded retreats and community tourism projects that allow you to give something back. You can learn new skills with lessons in Thai massage and vegetarian cookery; bathe in thermal hot springs and volcanic mud baths; or burn off some calories cycling, kayaking and hiking through stunning natural scenery. You’ll enjoy healthy food options using fresh, local ingredients, and find focus with yoga, meditation and mindfulness. This is a new and enriching way to explore the world, accompanied by like-minded travellers, local guides and wellness experts.
