    A note from the owner and organiser


    Ever since the huge success of our first Gay Ski Buddies week in 2010, I’ve always thought there was a great opportunity to bring the same combination of fun, friendship and adventure to gay activity holidays.

    Gay Active Holidays was set up to provide unique travel itineraries, high quality, adult and group activity holidays in locations you wouldn’t usually get to experience with a group of LGBT friends. We give you a chance to make the most of an active summer or winter holiday and relax in fantastic locations and a friendly environment

    Our first summer trips took place a few years ago close to my original home in northern Greece. The region's wild beauty, lush green scenery, and crystal clear waters have consistently surprised friends who haven’t previously visited this part of Greece. Our trips further out to Ecuador and to Norway where we went Hunting The Northern Lights have been a huge success. 

    In fact it is you, our loyal customers and friends that have now asked to re-create some of these and also add more such trips into our future itineraries. 

    Beyond our own designed trips we aim to collaborate with other well respected LGBT travel organisers to offer you a bigger selection of travel ideas you can share with our community. 

    Your feedback is always invaluable, so please feel free to email me your ideas, suggestions and anything else you think will make your Martikas' Gay Active Holiday your best gay holiday.

    And for your peace of mind Martikas Ltd, the company behind Gay Active Holidays is member of the Travel Trust Association and holds and ATOL license meaning your holidays and your money are secure.

    I hope I’ll get the chance to personally welcome you on one of our amazing trips soon!
