If you lead an athletic lifestyle, these active vacation areas will appeal to you. Ideal for those passionate about their fitness and physical health, these locations will be of great interest to those who like sports and staying active during their time off. Many of the holiday destinations were designed specifically with the sporty in mind.

Some of these hotels and resorts cater to a specific athletic endeavor, such as cyclist-catering accommodations, extravagant soccer club getaways and fantasy-inspired ski resorts. Other active vacation spots are more general and also offer a touch of luxury, like indulgent fitness retreats and luxe mountainside resorts. There are also places that are not accommodations but are worth visiting, including floating golf courses, futuristic mountain climber platforms and perpetual wave pools.
