Unplugged: 5 adventures to go techno-free

We know it can be pretty hard to go techno-free in today’s world, but it’s #NationalUnpluggingDay on 28 June 2015 so there’s no excuse not to put down those tempting iPhones, switch off the Kindles and get back to basics.  

The nature of our trips is about switching off from the norm at home, trying your hand at something new and immersing yourself in local culture, with plenty of real experiences. If you can only manage a day, make it 28 June. #Unplug

Southern India Family Holiday

You’re cruising along calm backwaters in a converted rice barge. And you’re in India. The sun is warm, the banks busy. There’s no time at all for plugging into your techno-friends, there’s too much to see in India’s daily life.  Seek out wild monkeys on a nature walk, visit a local family for a traditional lunch and explore the jungle on easy bush treks. This is traditional India at its finest.

Borneo Family Holiday

Imagine heading into the Malaysian jungle with a local family to bed down for the night in simple, traditional Malaysian huts. On the edge of the beautiful Oxbow Lake, the best place to experience untamed Borneo is here. On this nature-lovers’ adventure, you’ll travel to the secluded, rustic hideaway of Survivor Island, home to bubbling mud pools, rugged jungle treks and pristine sandy beaches. This is paradise, unplugged.

Malta and Gozo Family Holiday

What better way to switch off from the normal day to day routine than stepping into someone else’s? Journey to the picturesque island of Gozo, and spend a day in Xlendi, trying out a day in the tranquil life of a shepherd. Gozitan shepherds still tend their sheep and goats in pristine countryside, accompanied by dogs guiding the herd on its way. You’ll be invited to join in the feeding and milking of the sheep as well as taking part in the traditional Gozitan cheese-making, delicious!

East Africa Family Holiday

 Take a walk on the wild side on this wildlife themed adventure in East Africa. By day, enjoy game drives and Big Five sightings, before camping in the moonlight and falling asleep to the gentle amble of giraffes, passing you by. Imagine switching off in the heart of the Usamabra Mountains with a campfire to stare into instead of a screen, a group of fellow family adventurers to laugh with instead of a television…

Summer Pyrenees Family Holiday

An adventure in Andorra is great for unplugging; you won’t be watching the latest bike trials on YouTube because you’ll be living it. Mountain biking in the Ordino Valley, hiking in the stunning Pyrenees Mountains and zip-lining though the trees for a heart-racing experience.  Adrenaline comes at no extra cost!

If only for a day, #unplug and make it memorable.
