Byron Bay Healthy Holiday – From Head to Toe

2. Body Movin’

The easiest way to work out is when you don’t realise you’re doing it. You can improve your fitness and decrease stress levels without ever setting a foot inside the hotel gym. Try adding some of these enjoyable, but highly effective Byron Bay activities to your break away.

  • Kayaking. A perfect low impact workout to increase fitness and improve strength and flexibility. You think you’re enjoying ocean spray, sunshine and getting close to dolphins and turtles but actually you’ll be working your arms, shoulders, chest, torso and legs. Get paddling with our Earth To Surf Adventure Tour or Ocean to Summit Adventure Tour.
  • Mountain Biking. While your body is busy burning 600-1000 calories per hour you’ll only be noticing the awesome adrenalin hit and marvelling at the beauty of hidden forest tracks. The ultimate “office body” combat for your legs, thighs and butt, so do yourself and your body a favour and book our Bike ‘n Hike Adventure Tour.
  • Hiking. Exploring the lush hinterland rainforest or getting to the top of Mt Warning won’t just connect you with nature, recharge your energy levels and still your mind, it will also deliver a whole body workout and a huge sense of achievement. We have a range of great hiking tours.

  • Walking. You won’t notice you’ve walked 1.5 hours along the Byron Bay Lighthouse Walk as you marvel at the migrating humpback whales (between June – early November), dolphins, sea turtles and perhaps some sharks. You’ll also be rewarded with incredible district and ocean views! Our Big Day Out Byron Bay Tour can take you there!


3. Heart to Heart

Slowing down to spend meaningful time with friends, family and your partner doesn’t just make us happy. Studies show that having great connections and getting together with other people reduces the risk of many health problems such as heart disease and even dementia. So gather a group of old friends or make some new ones on a guided adventure tour like our Big Day Out Byron Bay Tour.


4. Food for Thought

Eating fresh healthy food can super charge your body and heal you from the outside in. It can be super tasty too. Use the momentum of being on holidays to focus on what you put into your body and try these simple ways to avoid over indulging.

  • Explore Byron Bay’s fresh local produce from the markets
  • Eat breakfast! Take advantage of having the time to include a healthy start to your day and try to continue this habit once your holiday is over
  • Try staying in self-contained accommodation to allow you to prepare some meals yourself and avoid eating out every night
  • Allow yourself some treats. Extreme deprivation will only lead to binging out in the worst way
  • Get busy. Don’t revolve your days around meals
  • Moderate your drinking. By all means have a drink but moderation is the key


5. Put Your Feet Up

Schedule in some time to do nothing. Both your brain and your body need a chance to unwind and be at peace. Having rest days also helps you gain maximum benefit from your exercise.

Feeling inspired? It’s just so easy to have a fun-filled but rejuvenating Byron Bay holiday that feeds your body, mind and spirit. No extreme measures, no deprivation – just balance and whole lot of adventure. Come and join us for some unforgettable tours, which just happen to be healthy for you too!

NEW Bike n’ Hike Adventure Tour

It’s exhilarating, it’s heart pounding, it’s inspirational and you’ll feel on top of the world after you’ve completed the latest must-do activity in Byron Bay – the brand new Bike n’ Hike Adventure Tour.

For anyone who loves the outdoors, the thrill and excitement of mountain biking and the overwhelming satisfaction of hiking up a mountain at dawn – then this tour is for you. Two of Byron’s most trusted adventure tour companies, Byron Bay Adventure Tours and Mountain Bike Tours Byron Bay, have joined forces to combine their skills and local knowledge to create this unique overnight adventure.

The Bike n’ Hike Adventure Tour kicks off with a 3 hour mountain bike ride through the secluded fire trails of The Nightcap Nation Park and Minyon Falls in the Byron Hinterland. Cycle through this ancient rainforest landscape experiencing single track trails, exhilarating downhills, log jumps and more. The ride finishes with a well-earned swim in the crystal clear waters of the falls and a delicious picnic lunch before heading off to your overnight camp site at the base ofMount Warning.

On arriving at base camp, you’ll really appreciate the chance to relax and take in the wildness surroundings, go for a swim or chat about the days adventures around the camp fire. After an evening of good food, then it’s off to bed in preparation for the early predawn climb to the summit of ‘Wollumbin the Cloud Catcher’, better known as Mount Warning. The quiet hush over the forest just before dawn will be your companion as you climb to the top of Mount Warning in time for the sunrise. And what an experience! But don’t take our word for it, here is just a sample of the enthusiastic responses we’ve received from customers:

“What can I say? One of the best tours yet. Our guide was super friendly and our summit walk to see the first sun light on the east coast was well worth the long track up Mount Warning. Highly recommended.”

“Climbing Mount Warning was such an experience. Armed with our flash lights we made our way to the top and what a gift to behold.” 

Once you’ve descended Mount Warning, our guides will return you to Byron Bay on a high that will stay with you long after you leave!

This is one of the best value, all-encompassing Byron Bay Hinterland tours available and is great for visitors and locals alike. With no need to pack up the car or unload masses of camping, hiking and biking gear, this tour offers all the adventure without any of the hassle.

All that’s left to do is have fun and enjoy the ride. Are you up for the challenge?
