Oak Hall Holidays

An active break

Do you love the great outdoors? Do you find that an active break is a refreshing break? Join us for a week in a beautiful Italian setting as we enjoy sailing and kayaking on the lake, walking, swimming and more. 

The cost of this holiday includes coach and ferry transport for the activities, use of yachts on the lake with a skipper, cycle hire, kayak hire, high ropes course and swimming pool entrance, as detailed below. 

New for this year, the hotel will have a Taste of Italy menu offering a range of dishes from around the country. 


Action-packed activities

In the glorious Oglio Valley the river flows into Lake Iseo. Included in the cost, one of our activities will give us access to a private club on the lake. This includes the use of two 30ft yachts, with a skipper to guide us.

There will also be kayaks available, which we can use to explore the lake at our own pace and we can swim in the lake. We can take it in turns to sail or kayak and we will have great fun exploring this beautiful scenery.

"This was a brilliant holiday and so interesting. The lake was stunning, warm to swim and lots of activity options"

The heart of the mountains

Two further days of our activity package will take us into the mountains to walk amongst the inspiring scenery. Lake Moro is a beautiful location, nestled just above the riverside town, where you can try horse riding as part of the activity package. If you wish, you can take part in an optional horse riding trek further into the mountains. Panoramic views, a restaurant and pedal boating all add to the fun.

A ferry crossing to Europe’s largest inland island, Monte Isola on Lake Iseo, opens up a day of discovery, walking or cycling. Alternatively, relax in the lakeside restaurant or enjoy a swim in the lake and take in the spectacular views.


A forest adventure

A fourth day will take us to an adventure park in the forest. Suitable for a range of ages and abilities, a series of high ropes, low ropes and zip lines provides an exciting day. The area is also excellent for walking.  

We also spend a day relaxing at the swimming pool complex with a range of pools and slides (see photo above). 

Our free day allows us to explore the local town or impressive spa facility and enjoy the satisfaction gained from a week of healthy exercise. 


Comfortable accommodation

We will be based in the three-star Hotel San Martino, north of the lake, in the riverside town of Boario Terme. All the rooms are en-suite. 

After each day we will meet together to hear an inspiring Bible talk, as well as having the chance to share stories from our activities or play games.

Join us this summer for an active break amongst the amazing Italian lake and mountain scenery.
