Action Outdoors, the UK arm of the not for profit UCPA organisation, has launched its summer programme with more holidays than ever before, in more destinations and with more activities on offer.

It’s the largest programme of its kind, offering all-inclusive packages across France and worldwide destinations, all with the same concept – ‘a great product that offers fantastic value for money’.

Activities that are offered include mountaineering, rock climbing, mountain biking, canyoning, road cycling, trail running, tennis, horse riding, kite surfing, windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving and sea kayaking.

UCPA centres are based in the French Alps and along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. More recently, UCPA Planete has launched, expanding its destinations worldwide to include Mexico, Egypt, Morocco, Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

It means hundreds of holidays across the whole year in 17 summer destinations, offering courses with top level instruction for all ability levels from beginners to experts.

Managing Director of Action Outdoors, David Robertson, said:

“Most of our customers in the summer come from people that have experienced our ski holidays during the winter, appreciating the all-inclusive value we offer. We want to do our best to tell everybody about the UCPA and that there’s a whole range of activities for all levels in warmer climates to enjoy. Come and experience the UCPA during the summer and then maybe try a winter holiday after that. Now we are offering holidays as far away as Mexico, still with all the same values the UCPA is known for – great food, instruction and a social atmosphere at unbeatable prices.”
