As the summer rolls around you might have thought about getting out into the open, spending a holiday trying new things, or just challenging yourself. Our brand new Fitcation campaign is aimed at doing just that, with a huge range of activities across Leicestershire aimed at getting active.

So whether you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, learning a new sport or having a family adventure, then read on and find out more!  You can take part in thrill-seeking challenges, learn a new sport or just have active family fun in our beautiful county with its 70 miles of waterways, 200 square mile National Forest and a city with the latest in leisure and active entertainment facilities.

Fitcation is all about taking a break with a difference and getting out and about in the open air. Staying active is massively important to our physical and mental health, and a short break full of activities will do loads to improve your quality of life.

We’ve grouped our active escapes into three categories, covering more adrenaline fuelled activities, family fun and sporting adventures.

Adrenaline Escapes

These activities are not for the faint of heart. If you’re a thrill seeker looking for an exciting adventure then these are ideal. Jump on a quad bike, throw yourself out of a plane or drive an actual tank! Whether you want to book individually or enjoy a challenge with your friends, get ready for the time of your life and get your heart pumping with one of our adrenaline escapes.

Sporting escapes

Leicestershire has a reputation as a sporting city, with top professional sports teams and loads of opportunities to get involved in a whole range of different sports. With the Commonwealth Games coming to Birmingham this summer, it’s the perfect time to try a competitive sport like archery, shooting, cycling or canoeing. Choose how active you want to be with relaxing sports like fishing, get some steps in with a round of golf or get your heart pumping with mountain biking or cycling through the beautiful National Forest. There’s so much on offer in Leicestershire.
