Action Outdoors

Action Outdoors is the UK arm of the French UCPA brand, set up over 50 years ago to encourage young people to take part in outdoors sports. It has since developed into a not for profit organisation that provides sport holidays for a wide range of ages with a huge range of accommodation options. Each year over 240,000 people enjoy a sport holiday with UCPA, enjoying accessibility to outdoor sports regardless of social background, income or culture.

A total of 80 different sports activities are offered in UCPA centres all year round, including, skiing, mountain biking, surfing, mountaineering, diving, sailing and horse riding. The holidays are always All Inclusive – with all meals and guiding included in the price along with cycle hire and access passes in summer and ski equipment and lift passes in winter.
