During the holiday trips, sports fans can take the chance to check places where the major world sporting events happen or visit places where are important to the history of sports. And if you fancy, even practise the activities of each destination. Check out some tours to destinations that every sports person will love:
The Winter Olympic Games site in Norway
In 1994, the city of Lillehammer, located in the eastern region of Norway, only 180km of the capital Oslo, hosted the Winter Olympic Games. To receive the renowned international event it was built the ski resort of Kvitfjell, which to this day is one of the most modern in northern Europe and is open to the public.
Therefore, for those who wish to ski in the same place where many Olympic athletes have passed, Lillehammer is the right place. Read more.
Formula One Circuit in Monaco
Monaco is the scene of one of the world’s most famous Formula 1 Grand Prix races. This is because the circuit of the hot championship takes place in the streets of the country rather than a racetrack, passing through the main sights.
The GP takes place every year on the last weekend of May and the spectators are vying for the best places to watch the race: hotels, restaurants, etc. At other times of the year, it is possible to rent a luxury sports car and drive as a pilot on the streets of Monaco-obviously at reduced speed.
The Indian Ocean in Seychelles
The paradisiacal African archipelago has a gigantic area of untapped waters perfect for water sports, especially scuba diving. Seychelles has as the main concern the preservation of nature and sustainable tourism, which guarantees a huge biodiversity of both terrestrial and maritime species. At the end of the year, starting in October, it’s whale-sharks season, unmissable for sports fans.
