Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a fitness fanatic to come?
No, not at all! Active Escapes is not about how fit you are but about having FUN! We aim for you to be fitter at the end compared to when you arrive and we cater for everyone; from people who want to train hard all week to guests who just want to join in the training that they wish to. We can be as hard or as soft as you like!
What is the food like?
In a word – delicious! Our chefs cook the finest of foods with as many whole foods and as little processed foods as possible. From salads, lean meats, seafood, rices, spices and amazing flavours; everything is fresh and prepared fresh daily. Have a special request? We will aim to meet it. Vegetarians and vegans are also catered for.
Is a cheeky glass of wine or a few beers allowed? Can I go out for a drink whilst on the retreat?
Of course it is! At Active Escapes we work out hard and we reward ourselves for a hard days work. In fact the second last night is always planned as a ‘party night’.
Can I go into town for dinner or a drink mid-week?
Of course! We can show you a selection of local bars and restaurants in the area.
What is the mimimum age?
You need to be 18 to attend an Active Escapes trip.
I’m thinking of coming by myself. Is that ok?
Of course it is! Many people come by themselves, in fact more than half. We believe the best way to come is solo and these people in particular have the best time.
What is the age range?
Majority of our guests are aged between 20 and 40 but we have had guests up to 60 who have a great time.
Can I do my own thing during the day or do I have to stick to the schedule?
The one thing you will have a lot on the retreat is OPTIONS! You can do whatever you like with all of our training sessions being optional. Even within the training sessions you will be given options depending on your fitness levels and how hard you would like to train.
Are flights included?
As our guests come from all over the world flights are not included, all our guests arrange their own flights.
Do I have to organise my own transport from the airport to the Retreat?
On the first day of the retreat we offer pickups and also organise drop offs on the last day.
For any other queries or questions please don’t hesitate to email us.
