Let this year be one of get up and go rather than fly and flop with our pick of activity holidays for each month – around the UK and abroad
UK: Snowhole expedition, the Highlands
They say you should start your year as you mean to go on, though perhaps learning how to construct and live in a communal snowhole is best as a one-off. This four-night mountain adventure in the Cairngorms national park is a true winter workout, with participants learning mountain skills before hiking up to the summit of Cairn Gorm. Two nights are spent in cosy Fraoch Lodge near Aviemore, and the highlight is a night in the snowhole with fellow mountaineers, and a three-course meal.
