Over 50s Adventure Holidays

You are never too old to explore the world, and many are proving this with over 50s adventure holidays.

If you have reached the half century mark and you are looking for some of the most exciting holiday destinations on the planet, there are more than enough to choose from – all you need to decide is the sort of adventure you are looking to have.


Djibouti is a country most people are unfamiliar with, but it has one of the most exciting landscapes on earth. The land that makes up this country is mostly rock, complete with volcanic activity, salt lakes and waterfalls – and you have the added bonus of potentially coming across one of the many nomadic tribes that still wonder across this terrain.

If you are looking for thrilling, over 50s adventure holidays, you will need look no further than Djibouti, which offers not only hikes, but also kayaking and snorkelling, among other exciting opportunities.


Burma has actually become one of the most exciting destinations for over 50s adventure holidays in recent years, particularly for avid cyclists.

Many people are actually choosing to cycle through Burma, stating it is a unique way to get in touch with the land and its people – something that simply is not possible by vehicle. When you are on foot, or indeed, on a bike, you are travelling in a way that is much more personal, much more in tune with the “land”.

It is as if you get to see the land from another perspective, according to many experienced travellers, and this alone makes it worthwhile considering for that next big trip abroad.


Another great idea for an adventure is packing your bag and travelling to Spain to drive in a vintage vehicle. While this might sound more like a sporting event, rather than a holiday, organizers are adamant that it is indeed the latter, and that this is something that will appeal to motorists and holiday makers alike. over fiftys adventure holidays

Those who want to enjoy an over 50s adventure holiday with a little more “holiday” and a little less “adventure” might find this option very appealing.

Nagorno- Karabakh

Nagorno-Karabakh is a thrilling destination for those interested in over 50s adventure holidays, but it is most certainly not for anyone who is looking for a laid back visit the sea.

This area still witnesses border skirmishes and other political upheavals, but it is for the archaeological sites, monasteries and caves that people flock from all over the world.

Anyone travelling to this area will need to be aware that their embassy might not be able to provide assistance in the event of an incident, so it is important for travellers to make themselves aware of the risks before booking their flights.

There is nothing quite as heart stopping as over 50s adventure holidays, and there is something for just about everyone. Whether you enjoy trekking across a desert or kayaking down rapids, the world is your oyster and each holiday, a potential pearl.

  1. I do love the idea of those salt lakes and waterfalls. I’ve never heard of some of these sites, so will have to do some research, to learn more. There are many places I’d like to visit, and hopefully plenty more time to do so. This is certainly the time to consider taking a chance and doing something new and challenging. If not now, then when? Responsibilities tend to decrease as we get older, and there’s often more leisure time, so after 50 is a great time to make some new memories.

  2. I am so looking forward to retirement so that I can travel to places that I have never seen before. I am going to start right here where I live, in the USA. I live in South Florida, but I have always wanted to travel west. I would like to drive so that I can stop at those little places that are off the beaten path. I love nature, and there is so much to see. I want to see the hot springs. the desert, the Grand Canyon, and maybe even pan for some gold in California. This world has so much to see and I just have a few more years until I will have the time I need to start my adventure!
