Planète – Worldwide Trips
UCPA Planète, worldwide trips – is a product that has been created by UCPA, but as they are not hosted in UCPA specific centres they can be very different from your standard UCPA holiday. These amazing products give you the opportunity to take on new sports or improve current skills in fantastic destinations worldwide.
Always included in our holidays
All technical equipment
Instruction or guiding
UCPA have teamed up with hotels around the world to do what they do best and offer accessible holidays that are based around outdoor sporting activities. It’s the same ethos as their regular holidays but if you’ve already travelled with UCPA, you should expect something quite different when booking a UCPA Planète trip.
Accommodation will not be in a purpose-built centre for UCPA guests but can vary quite widely, from a laid-back surf hostel to a 4-star complex with a private beach. Of course, they are in some prime locations for doing outdoor sports. All meals are included, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be eating in your hotel’s restaurant every night. With these trips being based further afield, there’s a bit more of a cultural aspect to them and some packages include excursions to explore the area and local restaurants.
You can find all your water-based sports available on Planète: kite, wind and regular surfing. Plus, scuba diving, mountain biking and hiking. It’s just another great way to take on or improve on a sport, in a fantastic destination with the logistics taken care of for you. You just need to arrive.
Each UCPA Planète destination is completely different from the next and the same goes for the accommodation. They are not purpose-built UCPA centres, but instead vary from hostels, appartments and hotels each having its own bit of local charm about them. They each offer different facilities too such as pools, jacuzzis, tennis courts or saunas and some rooms have balconies or kitchenettes.
As these destinations are new to UCPA, we do not have as many UK clients travelling on Planète holidays at the moment. There will also be guests staying in your accommodation, who haven’t booked with UCPA.
Although the style and size of your accommodation will be completely different from the UCPA centre you’re used to, there is the same ethos in terms of room sharing. You may have a room to yourself, or you could be in a shared room with other guests and depending on hotel there may be the option to book a twin/double room for a supplement. Again, bathrooms might be shared and some rooms will have en-suites. You’ll have to read about each destination to find out more about the accommodation that awaits you.
Alongside practising your sport, you’ll be able to dive into a new cuisine. Whether in Morocco or Greece, or wherever you choose to end up... the food on offer will vary a lot.
Some meals will be served in your residence and others in local restaurants. Breakfast is usually served in your hotel and may be a buffet. Depending on your destination, lunch could be a picnic on the beach or at a restaurant and in the evening, dinner might be back at your hotel or again in a local restaurant. Read about your destination to get more information about what to expect.
Just like with UCPA France, if you have a dietary requirement get in touch with your hotel beforehand to give them a heads-up.
