Brits like active holidays

Brits like to take part in active holidays.

A study conducted on behalf of London's Heathrow Airport has revealed that British people love their adventures and regularly take trips where they complete high-octane activities.

And a total of 14 per cent of people planned an adrenaline filled holiday abroad whilst one in 10 people look to book a skiing trip.

It was also revealed that one in four adults have booked a holiday after getting so stressed.

A spokesperson for Heathrow, who commissioned the research to mark the launch of a new ski route, said: "We could all do with making sure we deal with our stress - and doing something exciting can help. An activity or trip that takes you out of your comfort zone can help to focus the mind on the task at hand, rather than dwelling on potentially stressful thoughts or anxieties. And of course, often these more extreme activities are sports or exercise-based, which has also been shown to help improve mental health. Ski season provides a great opportunity for an adrenaline fuelled trip, especially now that Scandinavian Airlines has today launched its route from Heathrow to the brand new Scandinavian Mountains Airport in Sälen."
