Summer is in full swing and as families spend holiday time together a survey shows that many are discovering new activities in the mountains. NEW

The UK tour operator, Inghams, has found that families are adventuring in different ways.

More than they thought they would on active summer holidays.
2,000 consumers took part in the survey.
  •  30% said they tried something different even though choosing a holiday destination for a specific activity.
  •  24% of travellers said they'd be motivated to go back to a previous holiday spot if it offered new activities for them.
  •  59% claimed to try new things on holiday they didn't expect to.
  •  57% say the experiences and activities differed from their expectations.

Londoners proved to be the most adventurous, open to trying new things on a summer holiday.

The idea of an 'alternative' activity appealed to 66% of London participants.
"It's great to see there is a real appetite for trying new activities on holiday and enjoying more adventurous experiences," said Harvey Gähl from Inghams Lakes & Mountains.

"E-biking is a striking example of an alternative experience available to try in many of our resorts.

"It encourages people of all abilities and fitness levels to access and enjoy the mountains on two wheels, something which some of our guests may not have expected to do," Harvey added.

Inghams Holidays has just produced the e-biking video below highlighting their easy-to-use aspect that offers a holiday more scope for adventure.
