Ford, Scotland

The Scottish Highlands may not seem like the most obvious place to set up a yoga camp with outdoor spring-water bathing, but that's exactly what EcoYoga's founder Nick Loening chose for his loch-side retreat, which combines yoga practice with reconnecting with nature. Perfect your crow pose in the morning and then sink into a hot wild river bath in the afternoon. Once the sun goes down, you'll need to cuddle down with a punchy, warming hot toddy and some tasty shortbread, just to remind yourself where in the world you actually are. From £555. ecoyoga.org

Mad To Live


For people who think the idea of an intense three-day bootcamp sounds like hell, Sophie Everard's Mad To Live camps are a fun alternative. Sophie is a fitness instructor, a lifestyle expert, a Roxy ambassador, a surfer and an all-round adventure addict, and it shows in the insane camps she creates. Morning trail runs across the dunes, horse riding through the countryside, mountain biking, sunset yoga on the beach and daily surfing make up the days and delicious home-cooked food, local wines and amazing people make up the nights.

Camp Wildfire

Kent, UK

A madcap summer weekender just for adults, this is part adventure camp, part music festival. Choose between the camp's extensive list of activities such as paddleboarding, extreme zorbing, high ropes and wild dodgeball in the morning, then change into your glitter and sequins after dark, grab a drink, and dance till sunrise at the music stages and forest parties. It's not all fun and games however – it's competitive, and everything you do over the three days can add or detract from your team's final score. From £139.campwildfire.co.uk
