If you want to get a buzz on the island without investing in any suspicious substances, join Active Ibiza for a tour around the parts of the island that most people are too busy enjoying themselves to discover. You can cycle, rock climb, horse ride, float around in a balloon or just wander around the countryside for a break from everyone else’s poolside come-downs. A natural high that leaves you fresh, clear headed and inspired by the islands beauty.
A place to look for something different like hiking or exploring hidden gems of Ibiza is Active Ibiza. There you can have an option to take up few hours activities of your choice and some treatments like acupuncture.
If you find yourself looking for a break from the party scene but not sure what to do why not leave it up to Active Ibiza. They have the best contacts to organise anything from horse riding to paddle boarding to mountain biking. Hiking through the stunning country side in the north was a great way to see another side to the island and our guide was very relaxed, keeping us going with great facts along the walk. We even met a farmer herding her goats.

Active Ibiza changes the pace of a holiday, working with experienced instructors to provide guided programmes in sports such as horse riding, kayaking, rock climbing and Stand up Paddle Boarding (SUP). Our activities are tailored to those who would like to try something new, and people who have been practising for years; whether staying alone, as a couple or a group. Our land activities provide you with equipment and an experienced instructor who knows their sport and the island well. From cycle routes, rock climbing and horse riding for every level of fitness, to balloon flights, coached runs or a relaxing walk through country often missed by visitors. Our sea-based activities include canoeing, kayaking, snorkelling and the increasingly popular stand up paddle board. Pitched at every level of experience, our scuba diving packages even offer opportunities for children. Take time to truly relax in Ibiza with an acupuncture treatment, yoga lesson or private Pilates class for you and your friends. Unwind with our spa day or combine body and soul with Stand-up paddle board yoga or Pilates.
In a quest to regain body strength and explore the countryside of Ibiza, we hooked up with Acitve Ibiza and its own tour guide Artash Doult who took us for a sunset walk through Puertes de Cielo. We were picking fresh grapes and almonds from the trees on the go and discovered carob fruit that is used as a chocolate and cocoa powder substitute. Watch this space, it might be the next big thing on the superfood scene. Artesh shared his extensive knowledge of the island and put us in a meditative state before another big night out. For those who seek even more physical thrill, Active Ibiza also offers water-sports activities, cycling tours, rock climbing or horse riding. They might even join you on the dancefloor.
If you fancy trying out horse-riding, then Active Ibiza offer amazing sessions that cater for complete beginners right through to more experienced riders. The kids’ package has basic tuition provided in the paddock before a gentle trek on small horses, with a maximum of four children in the group. The route through the interior of the island leads through fields and farmland. A great thing to do if you fancy a break from the beach.
Pilates, yoga, cliff walks, rock climbing, boating, horseback riding, kickboxing, tai chi; Ibiza’s got a lot happening for the man that likes to move. Taking some time out between yoga retreats here on the island, we hooked up with our friend Artash Doult, partner in Active Ibiza. And where better to hook up than out on a canoe in the Balearic Sea?
If you want to see some of the island I recommend a jeep tour with Artash Doult of Active Ibiza. Artash knows how the hidden gems on the island and the best places to get that stunning Instagram photo. His company can also arrange anything from balloon flights to horse riding to yoga.
