An International Guide to Sporting Vacation Destinations
A relaxing break doesn't have to mean a sedentary week spent in a lounge chair. From the Philippines to southern Spain, some of the most exotic and luxurious destinations in the world offer state-of-the-art sporting facilities for fans of scuba-diving, kite-surfing, rock-climbing, and other active escapes. Here, the health experts at the Q Blog by Equinox profile six active holidays that will take your breath away—for more reasons than one.
Where to Play: Join a one-week running clinic in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and clear your mind along scenic trails.
Where to Stay: A seven-day holiday organized by Fitscape includes full board at Kasbah Angour, a boutique hotel thirty minutes from Marrakech. The small hilltop hotel is surrounded by gardens that overlook the mountain range, and the outdoor swimming pool is perfect for post-run relaxation.
The Draw: You'll pick up tips on breathing and stretching, and can partake in other activities like cardio circuits and cycling during your stay.
