What it feels like to be there...

Railay is a hidden oasis of beauty. Cut off from the mainland by high cliffs and dense jungle, this tiny peninsula is only accessible by boat. The area is packed with world-beating activities for body, mind and spirit – all from a beautiful luxury base. Neighbouring Phi-Phi Island is home to great diving and was the backdrop to the film. 

What to do there…

Railay is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:
  • Major: Rock-climbing, Scuba-diving, Sea-kayaking, Cooking-classes, Art-classes, Boat-trips, Cave-treks, Nature-walks, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Gym/Fitness, Sailing, Windsurfing, Swimming, Tennis, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

Home to one of our favourite super-luxury hotels, Railay’s incredible natural environment can be enjoyed in effortless style at the 5* Rayavadee. The hotel exudes opulence and its private activity classes, spa services and fine dining are first class. Railay can also be enjoyed from the sleek, design-conscious 4* Bhu Nga Thani.
 

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Krabi Airport is 1h away by car/speedboat. Phuket Airport is 3.5-4.5h away. Both airports are 1h from Bangkok.
  • Weather: Nov to May is peak season, but off-season offers great seclusion and the rains come in bursts from 2.30-4pm.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Railay has a chilled out, adventurous vibe. The long west beach is linked to the eastern bay by the peninsula’s only shopping strip, a tiny, sandy street with a great coffee and cocktails bar and ice cream parlour. You will share gorgeous cliffs, jungle, beaches and islands with tanned rock-climbers and playful monkeys, but the exclusive Phranang beach and best caves are all right next to Rayavadee.

What it feels like to be there...

Bled is a fascinating mix of West and East, old and new, active and laid back, yet somehow it succeeds in being all things to all people. Whether you gallop through the verdant Alpine hills, sip sparkling wine from your hot air balloon, descend a steep mountain on your bike or row across the still surface of the lake, a fun time is assured. 

What to do there…

Lake Bled is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Lake-swimming, Boat-trips, Hiking, Cycling, Mountain-biking, Rock-climbing, Horse-riding, Hot-air-ballooning, Rafting, Kayaking, Hydro-speeding, Skiing/Snowboarding, Cultural-visits, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Swimming, Lake-side-lido, Golf.

Where to stay…

The 5* Grand Hotel Toplice is a 1930s icon set right on the lake and oozing authentic style and splendour. Take one of their rowing boats for a fabulous tour of the lake. 4* Vila Bled is a presidential manor house by the water, packed with old-fashioned Eastern European charm, warm hospitality and exciting activities.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: By car, Bled and Idrija are both about 1h from Ljubljana and <1.5h apart. Predjama is 1h from Ljubljana.
  • Weather: warm Apr-Oct, wet Oct-Nov, cold/snowy Nov-Mar.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

For a place with so many exciting, rejuvenating adventures on tap, the hotels and restaurants of Lake Bled have a charming, old-world quality. But loosen the collars of the well-to-do and you will find it is the same crowd jumping down a gorge with a hydro-speed float and distance swimming the refreshing lakes. Enjoy the rituals of dressing for dinner and acknowledging fellow guests. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

What it feels like to be there...

Beneath the mighty peak of the Matterhorn is the pretty, bustling town of Zermatt. The quiet buzz of electric cars is the only traffic noise, but the strains of jolly Alpine bands spill out from the shops on to the streets. Chocolate-brown houses, laden with flower boxes, contrast with the jagged, icy mountains on the close horizon. 

What to do there…

Zermatt is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Skiing/Snowboarding, Off-Piste, Sledging, Snow-shoeing, Ice-climbing, Ice-skating, Paragliding, Spa/Massage, Cultural-visits, Hiking, Mountain-biking, Fishing, Rock-climbing, Downhill-scooters.
  • Other: Gym/Fitness, Swimming, Yoga, Pilates, Cinema.

Where to stay…

High on a cliff-face above the centre of town sits gorgeous 5* The Omnia. Accessed through a tunnel and 45m lift through the rock, the drama of your entry is surpassed only by the amazing views from within. The epitome of designer chic, this hotel aims to magnify the splendour of nature and the elements, ensuring you an exciting stay.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Zermatt and Montana are about 3-3.5h drive from Geneva, Zurich and Basel or 2.5h from Bern (similar by train).
  • Weather: warm/showery May-Oct, cool/snowy Nov-Apr.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The peaks around Zermatt have the altitude for year-round skiing, but in summer this area is a mountaineer’s paradise. Scaling the summit of the Matterhorn has been every climber’s dream since Edward Whymper first conquered it in 1865. Sadly, four of his party fell to their deaths on the descent, but the route is now established and readily achievable with the right guide, equipment and coaching.
