Lirene CilliersBy Lirene Cilliers   Posted 23rd Jan 2024

Does your heart crave the rhythm of a bicycle rolling along an undulating countryside road? Perhaps it's the rush from a river's whitewater that quickens your pulse, a pristine, mirror-like lake calling to be kayaked, or maybe it's the whispering secrets of hidden trails enticing you to unravel their mysteries on foot? 

Cycling has always been at the heart of what we do at Grasshopper Adventures, but our hearts are outdoors, and rare is the adventurer who only has one passion! That's why we're thrilled to unveil our latest multi-active tours! 

What are multi-active tours? 

Multi-active tours, also referred to as multi-adventure tours, are no ordinary excursions. They encapsulate an odyssey of different perspectives and experiences. 

With our multi-active tours, each day unravels a fresh layer of a destination. By cycling through its back roads, hiking its trails, and diving into its waters, you expose yourself to a diverse perspective on the local culture, scenery, and daily life that pulses in the heart of each location. 

With itineraries crafted to perfection to cater to diverse tastes, multi-adventure tours are designed to captivate all—the adventurous souls, the curious minds, and the joyous spirits. 

How fit should I be to embark on a multi-active tour? 

Now, let's talk about inclusivity. Our multi-active adventure tours aren't made for seasoned athletes; they're designed for everyone—from the keen cyclist to the leisurely stroller.  

We believe that age and fitness levels shouldn't be barriers to exploration. Whether you're an energetic soul or someone who enjoys a more relaxed pace, our itineraries cater to the diverse needs of every traveler. It's not about pushing limits; it's about enjoying the adventure. 

Why do a multi-active tour in Asia? 

Asia is a basket of contrasts, a harmonious symphony of alluring beaches, age-old jungles, and majestic peaks, each with its own unique climatic rhythm. With its tropical beaches and rolling green hills, Asia is a hiker's dream, a cyclist's haven, and an adventurer's paradise! 

Want to luxuriate in the tropical sun of Southeast Asia? Or perhaps enjoy the rejuvenating cool breeze of the highlands? From the ancient civilizations of Indochina to the laid-back friendliness of the Japanese countryside, Asia opens the door to endless adventures, where every season brings new opportunity.
